Plushenko is inventing a 3A-4T combination and apparently has already landed it in practice. Do you think it's possible for competition or not, and what kind of value would it have?

I think it is possible. I remember very vaguely hearing that Chengjiang Li was doing quad toe/quad toe combinations in the practices at, I believe, the 2001 Worlds but I never heard much afterwards so that might have been an error in the original reporting.

Under the most current code of points, the combination would be worth 18.8 points. Kevin Van der Perren's quad toe/triple toe/triple toe combination (from the 2010 Worlds) would now be worth 18.5, as a comparison.

Ask me a question about figure skating!
