Olympia 2022: Figure skater Valieva makes history

European figure skating champion Kamila Valieva was the first woman to show two quadruple jumps at the Olympic Winter Games.

In winning with the Russian team in the team competition on Monday, the 15-year-old hit both a toe loop and a four-turn salchow.

“It was a fantastic feeling. But I also felt a burden, which I then got over,” said Valieva after the premiere at the Capital Indoor Stadium in Beijing.

The first quadruple jumper ever was the Japanese Miki Ando, ​​who managed a quadruple jump in 2002, but not at the Olympics.
