    I'm so glad for him, and admire the mental strength he displayed in this performance; but the program hasn't warmed me yet and I wish he has more ballet training to improve his line!

    I agree... so proud of Yuzu and worried about him at the same time.

    I feel like kidnap him so I can feed him cake and energy drinks, as well as one of my super nutritious spicy beef noodles at least 3 times a day for like a week. He need to build up his strength land those quads, so he still have the energy to committed to the the performance aspect during FS. Through out he seem visibly struggling, you can almost see him count his breath and count down to the next element and how to manage his conditions to the brink. It is like watching someone weak at knees walking a very narrow ledge, a bit worrying.

    I think it was nerves - the pressure really got to him. But of course, he needs to take care of his body! He looked quite pale, and very thin. I have confidence he'll recover in time for Worlds I predict we'll see a World Champion from Japan in March

    I don't think he looked especially tired, just nervous. He wasn't huffing and puffing and overwhelmed at the end of the program, and he maintained good speed throughout the performance. He was less wild and less hectic in his movements, and I think that gives the impression of him being tired when really he's just flowing through the choreo better and being less wasteful with his energy.

    Congrats Yuzuru on winning your first national championships and being accepted by Waseda University! He'll take the same correspondence course that Yukari Nakano graduated from, this will allow him to continue training in Canada. So amazing that he has managed his skating and studies so well!

    Thank you for the links, merleice!
    Congratulations on being a student of Waseda University, Yuzuru!!
    (and I can't believe that he is going to be a university student next spring... )

    WOW Yuzuru! How does he manage all that in his busy schedule...
    Did he take the university entrance exam between NHK and GPF?

    Congrats to Yuzuru! Though I'll always root for Daisuke, I feel lucky to be a fan while Yuzuru is skating, and it's exciting to realize that he's just starting his climb to excellence.

    Amazing, congrats! I'd imagine so, because apparently he received his acceptance letter after the GPF.

    Very brief translation:

    "I still can't believe that I won, somehow I could manage to hold on because of the score of SP."
    "Takahashi-senshu was very strong, he narrowed the gap of the score after FS. If I were him, I could not have done that. I should practice more and more and want to skate better in FP."

    http://hochi.yomiuri.co.jp/sports/wi...OHT1T00211.htm

    This article says that Yuzuru passed an essay examination, and after that, he had an oral examination using Skype on Dec.9 in Sochi. No wonder he got sick from a lot of mental pressure.

    I'm verry looking forward to seeing EX!!

    Whaaa.. that is an amazing achievement! It explained a few things. Imagine taking A-Levels for Uni entrance exam and still did THAT!!
    Next year is going to be even better I am sure! Congrats Yuzu!
