I’m not really criticizing Yuzuru at all poor kid , I would rather say I supported him when in July he was so brave to ask out loud in Japan for a new SP that the canadian team has denied him in August .
Struggling and being forced to skate to PW SP is a big regret IMO and an abnormal and unique situation among top skaters for sure....
I’m a Yuzu’s fan, not Orser’s, the coach who said Yuzu is not for OGM in Sochi.
But allegorically speaking you may go to Sochi driving a Ferrari F12 or you may go there driving a baby car. Which car depends on the coach, not on the skater, if you are a Orser’s student.
I know there are some fans who have negative opinions to his coaching team. And I myself sometimes felt frustrated about his programs personally. But I think we should not conjecture something negative without clear evidence. I think he surely has respect and thankfulness to his coaches if sometimes he doesn’t have consentaneous opinions with them. I think at least he does not hope his fans to think himself as a poor kid who is forced to perform these programs by his own coaches. Let’s stay positive with respect for Yuzuru
It's very disappointing that Orser is giving this content to Yuzuru for his Olympic season. I don't think Orser is beyond criticism for that.
I'm hoping that Yuzu will overcome the reused programs and skate brilliantly though!!
What I was trying to say is that Yuzu is clearly tired of PW SP ( and his and our poor ears too!!).
In the interviw translated by Yude in the message # 1880 , he says :” SP is still running into difficulties and there is some uneasiness , but I have a STRONG FEELING that I want to show a new thing, not the SAME as the last season.” . That's why I don't think he's thankful to his choaches at all , but absolutely angry and furious !
Actually the LP has a cooked character because Romeo is always Romeo : love-death-youth-fight till death- and Yuzu is too young to deserve this recycling stuff IMO.
Finally the only brand new program is the EX paradoxically, may be Story or True Love, which have a Japanese choreo!!
I hope it helps!
In any case I suggest you to read a very interesting discussion in the “programs for 2013-2014 season” Thread, they are talking about IMG – Hanyu - Orser and the recycling policy versus new programs...
I happen to love the PW program and think it suits him beautifully. I can understand though that skaters get tired of programs for more than one season as they have to listen and skate to it over and over again. However, I can't imagine that he is angry and furious. I think Brian is a very good coach and has helped Yuzuru become a better skater. I trust (and I assume Yuzuru and the Japanese Federation do as well) Orser and his expertise on what will give Hanyu the best chance at winning in Sochi.
I will say though that since I don't speak Japanese I am at a loss when it comes to Yuzuru's interviews. I have watched some with English subtitles and in everything I've seen he seems to completely trust in what Brian tells him. If your coach thinks you can win with recycled programs than you do it! He has four years after this season and before the next Olympic Games to try something new. I feel his fans need to be positive in their comments and assessments in order to help Yuzuru do his best.
Yuzuru Hanyu, an 18-year-old male figure skater, who has his sights set on the Sochi Winter Olympic Games, has returned from his training location in Canada to his hometown in Sendai City, where he unveiled his practice sessions to the public on the 30th of August and showed his vigorous condition by landing quad toe loop among others. According to his coach, Brian Orser, he will be skating to the movie soundtrack of 'Romeo and Juliet' composed by Nino Rota for his free program.
Two seasons ago when he obtained a Bronze medal at the 2012 World Championships, he also skated to 'Romeo and Juliet', but the music composition [this time] is different. As for his short program, he will be skating to last season's world-record breaking program 'Parisienne Walkways'. Hanyu's first competition this season will be Finlandia Trophy, held from the 4th to the 6th of October in Espoo, Finlandia.

I guess he said so because he wanted to prevent the media from assuming that he keeps his PW SP at that time, since he performed it in the DOI show while most of other skaters performed their new programs there. I think it’s an excessive conjecture to consider definitively that it shows bad relationship between Yuzu and his coaches
thank you very much for the clips!! 4S has become effortless!!Originally Posted by zydeco88;760302
