Figure Skater Vincent Zhou Is Planning 5 Quads At the Winter Olympics 2018

Vincent Zhou will be making his Olympic debut tonight with the Men’s figure skating short program in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

The 17-year-old figure skater — who is actually the youngest Olympian from Team USA — is actually planning five quads for his free skate this week.

“Not many people are doing five quads right now,” Vincent shared in a recent teleconference. “It’s something that not really that many people are able to do. To do five quads cleanly, and I’m one of those people trying to figure it out and be ambitious and work on it.

“It’s all a process, and I feel like I’m doing a great job of managing it.”

However, he knows his competition, saying that he’s probably not going to be on the podium with a medal.

“I don’t like to focus on what other people do. I’m just gonna try my best to skate the way I train. Who knows? There might be a miracle. I might end up on the podium. It’s going to be best to not think about the big picture – just take it one element at a time,” Vincent added.

Even if he does or doesn’t get a medal, Vincent‘s Olympic career isn’t over with Pyeongchang.

“The Olympics is something truly special. I hope I’ll get to enjoy more than one,” he shared. “I’m just gonna try and take it day by day. Try and enjoy myself while there, meet some great athletes from all over the world, watch some other sports, and have a great time while I’m there.”

The Men’s short program kicks off @ 8PM ET/PT on NBC tonight.
