    I know it's very Yuzuru, but your back should not be broken!
    This is a VERY old quote, must be at least from two years ago if not more... we have no way of knowing if he has changed his mind or not on the issue, growing up. All of this article, I have to say, is not really up-to-date

    Wow thank you so much for sharing! Great video...just wish I knew what Yuzu was saying. Maybe someone would be kind enough to translate some of it if they had time. Enjoyed it anyway.

    It is interesting that his ina bauer and biellmann look so strong this year (not that they were not always wonderful). In the back of my mind, I have been wondering how much longer he would be able to keep them. It may be my imagination, or such a fantastic defeat my sad expectation that they would not be there in his program some day, but, being somewhat familiar with the history of his skating (this thread is great for catching some of his earlier skates through links), both of those "bends" looked better at Finlandia this year than they ever have to me. My first thought when I saw the video of the practice, and confirmed when I saw the feed of the fs, was that he had, at least for this season (or perhaps for Finlandia), reversed the aging process. Maybe he is hiding the pain through sheer willpower and spirit, but it really seemed that he was in control of what he was doing and working within the bounds of what his body could take (he made it look like he could well handle them, but he does that I get the impression even when he is pushing himself beyond what he should . . . only he knows). No one can certainly fault him if he drops them from his routine, and he is still so amazing without them, but the way that he is doing that ina bauer this year is to die for.

    I agree with you that at FT Yuzu was so much in control and looked stronger in general , even if his body is still very thin. I’m happy it wasn’t my impression only!

    About spins I think they have improved a lot from the very beginning of the season, True Love spin at 1:35 is to die for and one of the best I’ve ever seen! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ku5qVnDSr-c

    Yes, That is one beautiful spin, my fav part of true love, it matched that piece of music perfectly, notice when he changes edge and positions and how that matches music!
    it is also my impression that Yuzu's inna Bauer and bellman has much better control than before, I guess perhaps, he has better dance training, or just better training in general, such as proper warm up/stretch/strength training regime. I have confidence that he will keep inna bauer and bellman for years to come.

    A bit off topic from skating, but,

    I think many of you know that Yuzuru is a baseball fan.

    This year, (Sendai based) RAKUTEN Eagles won the league title. And also, Hiroshima Carp, Yuzuru's favorite team secured the spot in the Climax Series (just like the Wild Card in MLB). Hiroshima Carp (only team owned by citizens, not by an enterprise in Japan) could not win for years, so Hiroshima fans are so excited

    Yuzuru must be very happy and excited too. I hope this could be a propitious sign for him

    Both teams are now fighting to win the title of Japanese Champion.

    I like his face after his skewed 3A, around 3:28. Look at his fighting spirit!

    I also like the picture in this article

    http://www.ifsmagazine.com/articles/...tart-to-season

    I just remember Takahito Mura once commented jokingly that Yuzuru's nature is rather fit for combat sports

    Yes, he is a born fighter, but a graceful fighter!
