Wow, if he was nervous I'm glad that it didn't influence his performance like at GPF.

I will not forget your reaction in K&C and Orser's smile watching you perform
Please get some rests and gain some weight.

Congrats Yuzu! It was a great skate, and he keeps building on each performance. Great fight to hold the two quads, and then clean the rest of the way - guts and nerves of steel. Two excellent programs back to back, and there's still room to improve for Worlds!

it’s scary to me how Yuzu’s immense willpower is able to control his body and push it beyond the limit , like he did today.

I'm so glad for him, and admire the mental strength he displayed in this performance; but the program hasn't warmed me yet and I wish he has more ballet training to improve his line!

I agree... so proud of Yuzu and worried about him at the same time.

Through out he seem visibly struggling, you can almost see him count his breath and count down to the next element and how to manage his conditions to the brink. It is like watching someone weak at knees walking a very narrow ledge, a bit worrying.

I don't think he looked especially tired, just nervous. He wasn't huffing and puffing and overwhelmed at the end of the program, and he maintained good speed throughout the performance. He was less wild and less hectic in his movements, and I think that gives the impression of him being tired when really he's just flowing through the choreo better and being less wasteful with his energy.

Congrats Yuzuru on winning your first national championships and being accepted by Waseda University! He'll take the same correspondence course that Yukari Nakano graduated from, this will allow him to continue training in Canada. So amazing that he has managed his skating and studies so well!

yude, could you please translate what Yuzuru says after FS?
12-23-2012, 01:52 PM
WOW Yuzuru! How does he manage all that in his busy schedule...
Did he take the university entrance exam between NHK and GPF?
