Watch: 17-Year-Old American Vincent Zhou Lands First Quad Lutz in Olympic History
Teen figure skater Vincent Zhou is the first skater to ever land the jump at the Olympics.
What an Olympics it’s been for 17-year-old American athletes.
Snowboarders Chloe Kim and Red Gerard took home gold in their events earlier this week. Now, teen figure skater Vincent Zhou has made Olympic history by landing a quadruple Lutz.
Zhou is the first skater to ever land the jump at the Olympics.
No skater has successfully landed a quad Axel in competition, making the Lutz the most difficult quad jump you’ll see at the Olympics
Fellow American Nathan Chen, who is just 18, also has a quad Lutz in his routine and landed two of them during his free skate at Skate America earlier this season.
