    This makes the girl a world record holder since nobody has ever performed this jump at such a young age.

    Russian 11-year-old figure skater Veronika Zhilina managed to perform a quadruple toe loop during the "New Year-2020" junior competition in Moscow. As a result, Zhilina won the first prize in the competition.

    Born in Arkhangelsk in 2008, Veronika started her training at the age of 3 with her mother, a figure skating coach, and recently moved to Moscow to continue training with Eteri Tutberidze.   

    A video of the record-breaking jump is available on the athlete's fan page.
