    Men skaters have been doing triple axles for nearly 20 years. A woman trying one is somehow newsworthy??? It’s basically admitting that women are not as athletic as men. So 20 years from now a woman will try a quadruple??? What a joke Different standards for different sexes.

      TheAustinTessaDutchie She is the third woman to ever land the triple axel at the Olympics. Women land them alot, but at the Olympics. There is a clear difference in physiology between men and women, it’s easier to become stronger and faster for men than women. There has always been a split between men and women in sports because of these differences that no one can do anything about.

      Tyrala Kristina But feminists say they are the equal.

    • Leiska86 says:

      Nutrollio, feminists say crazy shit all the time, but I have’t seen anyone claim women are physically as capable, especially in tasks requiring explosive strength like this.

      Dude the level of salt on this comment is over the roof

    • Noe Fratti says:

      *sigh*, There’s plenty of reasons for female athletes trying NOT to do triple axles. In figure skating, just as in ballet, female performers (whose routine is more graceful) go after a leaner, lighter physical build; whereas men (who do all the lifting and such) have to develop a sturdier build. Making the jump takes a lot of strength, yes, but it’s the landing that’s most costly. I think I heard one of the commentators say it was a landing of about 500 pounds-force? Not having sturdy enough muscle to sustain that could end in irreversible injury. So there ya go.
