Didn't Yuzu said before that he likes fried foods? No more gyoza for him then, carbonated drinks needs to go to. It's good for his stomach considering how stressful his lifestyle is. I'm now curious how the heck does he gets the energy to skate when he's a small serving eater. Skating takes like more than half his daily caloric intake.
Recently, 2008 & 2009 Japanese Junior Nationals videos are uploaded again at Daily Motion.
I actually saw these TV programs before, but still they are very interesting.
One thing. Sad farewell to Kento Nakamura He retired this May.
In this year, Yuzuru was the first in SP, but he failed two 3A jumps in LP. He finally won over Kento and Shoma.
You can see he is angry after the competion, just the same reaction as that after the LP at Sochi
Little Shoma is in the video too.
Also, Ryuju and Keiji at DOI 2014 at Yokohama:
Ryuju: King Arthur
Keiji: La Traviata
Come to think of it, it is surprising. They start competing in senior category from this year. Yuzuru might have been in this stage, although he is already OGM.
I don't think this was reported yet about FaOI (July 6) shows.
Ballade was beautiful 3A, 4T fall, 3Lz+3T OK. Collaboration with Sarah, popped a 4T into a double or single (person couldn't tell clearly), 3A fall.. After the finale he did a final 4T as revenge.
Eagle 3A good, 4T strange landing, 1Lz. The person whose report I'm looking at could see Stephane from where she was sitting, apparently he gasped really loudly at seeing Yuzuru's 4T landed essentially horizontal and then cheered really loudly with a big smile. Collab had successful 4T and 3A. After the finale, he challenged 4Lo (hand down), 4Lz fall, and a final 4T+3A with a fall. I guess this is contrary to what Nathalie said, but everywhere I look people say he fell on the 4Lz, even though the rotation was there.
I think he has only performed Ballade cleanly the one time (FaOI July 5th afternoon show). Understandable, it must be a very busy off season for him!
