Then, in 1997, he again became the first and only man to perform a quadruple toe loop, triple toe loop combination jump, in a competition. He holds two places in the Guinness Book Of World Records because of those two jump combinations.
His nicknames are The Terminator, The King, King of the Quad, and Quad God.
