For all of this to be true, Hanyu would have to be a client of IMG. Is he? There's no statement about this anywhere, and Hanyu doesn't appear on the list of skaters on their website.

Actually, I think that if IMG had been representing him he'd get better coverage on the media. The few times he appears on television outside of skating he always does normal interviews, but all the other skaters seems to do variety shows as well, that kind of stuff... Kanako comes to mind. Does anyone know if he has sponsors?

Newsclip about his training in Canada: here
He says he's now training 5-6 hours a day, which is double the amount he did previously: he's so tired he goes straight to bed after practice. Off ice, he started attending dancing (hip hop) lessons to broaden his expression range. He would like to be someday a skater who can do everything, who is close to being perfect on all aspects of skating (jumps, spins etc.)

Skating is art, if you let it be.
He already is close to being perfect in all aspects of skating.
