    The others make me say, good, nice, well done, Hanyu makes me say 'wow!'
    Hanyu, Takahashi, recently Machida, Fernandez, Jason Brown, have that 'it' factor.
    I still hope he will improve, but the secret to Hanyu's success does not lie in posture.
    I agree. Based on what Orser says in his interviews that I have watched, Yuzu is a really passionate skater so I think they capitalize on that. He also says that while Yuzu is keen on improving his quads, Orser includes basic foundations in his training.

    I think he'll keep doing the Biellmann for as long as he can because it sets him apart from other skaters...

    Does JSF decide on which competitions a Japanese skater will attend?

    It is not good for his health. And I think he did get some injury on his back and/or waist at the WC although he did not say anything. I do enjoy watching him doing Biellmann but I guess I will enjoy more if he can stay away from injury and skate for a longer time.

    Yeah, but we know that he's the kind of skater who does not play safe when it comes to his programs.

    Anyway, do you guys know of links to the group performances in SOI or Osaka Exhibition?

    It's Tracy Wilson, now one of Yuzuru's coaches at TCC, whose most quotable quote about Yuzuru is that his jumps are sensational while his falls are spectacular (same observation by Kurt in the CBC commentary of 2012 Worlds; as they're both Canadians, I wonder whether they compared notes).

    She also did the CBC commentary in the 2011 4CC where Yuzuru placed second in his second year of senior competition. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAbWxK8AG-A
    There she was critiquing that his skating skills needed improvement ("the blade does not run quite as freely") and then interrupted herself with a "Woah!" when Yuzuru launched into his 3A-3T. Brian Orser credits Tracy's hours of work with Yuzuru for improving Yuzuru' s speed and flow across the ice, which goes to show that even prodigious talent can stand improvement, a lesson for lesser mortals like us.

    @Pamina: Yeah, sadly it can't be seen in Germany via YouTube. But you can see it here: http://www.trilulilu.ro/hall-of-fame...yu-new-version )
    Welcome Ana, and I hope to see more of your lovely work in the future.

    Pamina, I commiserate.

    I think it's Tracy Wilson. She also helps coach Yuzuru at the Toronto cricket club. Interesting really, there she was just commentating Yuzuru's performance and showing such admiration for him and his skating. I bet she never saw it coming that in the next couple of months she would be working with such a young talent.

    The thing is, Yuzuru is the opposite of Denis Ten, who is very composed and calculated in all his moves. Yuzuru is very wild and emotional, even with all the training with Brian Orser these recent years. I have to say, he is an instinctive skater
    I don't think Denis is composed at all. Very frequently he is not constant and when he has a major mistake, I expect many others to come during the performance. Maybe it's only my opinion, but Denis doesn't have that fighter attitude Yuzu has. If you cut the 4T fall from the SP WC2014, the program is perfect. The same at the FS GPF with the 4S. At Denis, usually, you can't just cut the part with the falls. When he has mistakes, his interpretation suffers from this too.
    On the other side, when he is clean, I see him as the most elegant skater in the world +with the best interpretation. () He's moves are very natural and ..he lives the programs (maybe the choreography helps too ) Just remember his passionate exhibition program from Sochi. A pleasure to watch the boy.

    If I remember correctly top skaters got the right to choose. Ny example Meryl and Charlie always choose Skate America and a later GP to have time to improeve their programs.

    Some Federation choose to keep their top skaters in hom GP (nhk in Yuzur´s case) and their younger ones to give them a home advantage.

    Question: Besides Russian choreographers and David Wilson, who else out there is a good choreographer? (I'm still new with this sport so I have no idea who's good or not)

    I heard that there are some rules like the medalists have to avoid each other ( not sure which one counts, GPF , OG or WC). Hope someone familiar with the rules can clarify. And also, Orser might try to keep yuzu and javi separated as much as possible to give both more chances to win in GP series. So I guess many strategies here.

    the 1-2-3 and 4-5-6 at Worlds cannot be at the same GP event - meaning, Yuzu, Javi, and Tasuki cannot be at the same event (I think there's an exception for home countries - like JSF can get both Yuzu and Tatsuki at NHK if they wanted to, but someone will have to check me on that). This was the reason why Yuzu was able to compete against Patrick for both his GP events for the 13-14 season; he placed 4th at Worlds in 2013 and as a result really got the competitive push he needed from directly competing against Patrick, especially at TEB and witnessing Patrick perform his two greatest skates ever.

    I'll answer based on the programs I have liked and which worked well for the skaters involved.

    Akiko Suzuki's "O" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOuaUMgFOcg) and Daisuke Takahashi's "Blues for Klook" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REw4lqL3w9I) were choreographed by Pasquale Carmerlengo who has expressed an interest to choreograph for Yuzuru when Yuzuru was not yet the big star that he is right now. I agree with Nimi that it will be interesting to have Rohene Ward (choreographer of Jason Brown's "Riverdance," http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzlcVKFVWVI) work with Yuzuru. Then there's Phillip Mills who choreographed Tatsuki's stunning "East of Eden" SP (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaYfPjBgj5c) at the 2014 Worlds. Not to forget of course Jeffrey Buttle who choreographed Yuzuru's PW.
