The double Olympic figure skating champion says that is his main goal.

Yuzuru Hanyu made a winning start to his 2019-20 campaign at the Autumn Classic International.

But the double Olympic figure skating champion has one goal for the season and the rest of his career.

Speaking after his success in Oakville, Ontario, the Japanese said, “I’ve always wanted to land the quad Axel.

“I live for the quad Axel and that’s why I’m here skating.”

The 24-year-old admits there are challenges to overcome if he is to achieve that objective in the near future.

He told Olympic Channel, “I want to do the quad Axel this season but I don’t know if I have enough time to practise in training.

“I will find try to find the time and the space for training it and hopefully I will be able to land it. I wish to add the quad Axel in the free or short program this season.”
