Yea I also believe it is for inflammation, which is common in sports. Ice is good for inflammation.

In Toronto and at the Toronto Cricket Club, he is not referred to as a kid but treated as an adult with the utmost reverent respect. Here, where he trains, he is legally an adult and treated as one. However, it has always been that way from day one when he arrived here. He came here to grow and to be shown how to develop into who he is, not to be molded into someone else's idea of who he should be.

Weir also said that Yuzuru personally maintained ultimate control over the design of his costumes (and incidentally the choice of his music). It is not a decision made for him by someone else. He is very much a person in charge, not a kid for whom those decisions are made. (Brian also has great respect for Yuzuru, and Yuzuru does make a lot of the calls in many other respects, such as for instance, keeping the quad salchow this year in the fs.)
I would also suggest that you go back and look at Brian Orser's costumes if you think that Brian would have any problem with the ones that Yuzuru is wearing. It should be obvious that he would not. But Brian, as well, knows what he is doing.
That you do not like his costumes is fine, but understand that they are part of Yuzuru that cannot and should not be separated out from him. He is not anyone's chattel to be told what or what not to wear. Everyone closely around him in Toronto seems to respect and support him, and stand by him. He is part of the TCC family. He is a person and a beautiful force unto himself. Orser and Weir do not have to re-think anything.

Wow you have a lot of inside information... Is does seem that Yuzuru is the kind of person that won´t do anything that he don´t want to do, but 19 is still young and he seem to do have an innocent side of him.

Actually, Yuzu seems to be very mature. However, I still have in mind the 17 years old boy who caught my eye at the WC. Also, I still call him kid because of his lovely reactions and innocent attitude. +Pooh

As far as I know Yuzu's mom is always with him everywhere he goes , never let him alone , she's at every competition and they're always together everytime they fly or return from Canada. Is she his agent?

I think this thread is very interesting to read for new fans to know more about Yuzuru.
It was opened in November 2011 and this thread itself is like a journey with him.
167 pages is a lot to read but I think it's worth it

I don't think so. 19 years old is not regarded as adult in Japan, and maybe he needs someone to take care of him in order to devote himself to skating.

Yuzuru and his family is trusting her very much. But, she is a person dismissed from the Federation once due to money scandal around 2006 together with the Head Director. She is a very capble person, and actually it is her who built up the successful system to develop excellent figure skaters in Japan, including Nobeyama training course.
It is a rumor that there is some kind of friction between her and the Federation.
Orser wanted her to have the coach pass for supporting Yuzuru because he had to look after Javier as well, but JSF did not allow that, and Orser complained about it.
This is what I just read in a magazine, so I cannot say it is credible or not.
