Speaking about the new FS I think it’s a pity that the Spread eagle/3A has been removed , since it’s clearly an amazing Yuzu’s strength which I hope will be back in next competitions.
At the same time I hope they fix the Ina Bauer problem , because he was not able to perform it before the steps/3F as the required effort to perform both elements in sequence is evidently excessive for him. Finally, I’m missing his very original twizzles so much, too !
But continuously rumors about injury and Hanyu’s poor physical condition should act as a red flag for his canadian team and for JSF.
Last Saturday he had a bad morning practice with many painful falls, and it has been reported he badly fell on his every jump in the FS warm up too . I wish Orser would be very careful with Yuzu’ s intensive training or it won’t be a big surprise if he gets seriously injured some day.
He’s also so thin and asthma doesn’t certaily help.

Skate America is going to start and the “Sound of Silence” around Hanyu is deafening and quite shocking…
I hope I won’t see him lying on the ice again trying desperately to grab some oxygen , nor limping and shaking his head while reaching the K&C after a FS in which two differents quads and two 3A were landed at just 17 .
Go Yuzuru, you’re so strong minded!!
In the recent issue of World Figure Skatinf Season Guide, devoted to Team Japan (some pics are here: http://twitpic.com/e/2j7h ), there is an interview with Yuzu about his training in Toronto. He again said that it was his choice to change the coach because he wanted to work with a foreign specialist with non-Japanese ideas (?). At first he felt it would be some kind of challenge to skate with Javi at the same rink. But now he feels very confortable with it and they are good friends. He is working on 4T and 4S which are not yet stable for now, but he changed the techique, when the power doesn't go out but he keeps it inside himself to focus on jumps (whatever that means). He said a lot of good words about Natalia Bestemyanova.
Here is a separate TV clip on Yuzu:
I would be very curious to know what Yuzu said about Bestemianova specifically…
Did he say anything about his physical condition after the FS in Finland?
Many thanks for the link and translation!!
