But now with Brain monitoring him and limiting his jumps in practice, I don't see he would overwork himself with those quad jumps.

    According to Brian, Javier has been practicing that quad loop last summer and has been doing really well, I bet Yuzu couldn't just watch his dear Javi's quad loop without trying that himself.

    But I believe no matter what his quad plan is next season, he will practice those carefully.
    Welcome! I pretty much agree with you, I think his coaching team would try to get him pace himself in his training, and the Cricket probably has as good an environment as any for practicing and learning new quads safely. Props to him for continuing to push the technical envelope though - hasn't he mentioned wanting to land all the quads? 4A is a little but if you think about it, Yuzuru probably has the best shot out of anyone in getting it done (assuming such a jump is indeed possible).

    yude - I have a feeling Johnny's going to be forever associated with Yuzuru when it comes to Japan . I liked the illustration boards with their faces.

    This is a recent interview I think: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHJ9bHibVZc Did they get Dai to leave Yuzu a message? Could anyone provide a rough summary/translation of what was said?

    Daisuke: Regardless of age, I feel he is one of the strong rivals aiming for the top of the world. I think he is considerably manly contrary to his appearance.

    Yuzuru: I am very happy to be told something like that by the senior skater I admire. Someday, when I am in the same position as him, I want to be an adult who can comment like him to younger skaters.

    I like the way he smiled during and after Daisuke's comment.

    Thank you for the link!

    I liked the last interview part. I agree with Mai, he seems to be getting taller little by little (there is no proof though).

    Great news!!
    Does that mean we can see Yuzuru's TV commercials, right?

    No, Tommmy, it's mostly not about TV commercials but about sponsorship in return of the right to use the athlete's image. So, yes, who knows, he might appear somewhere. A bunch of top athletes belong to this "Gold Partner" program. I am actually a little surprised that only now he made the list. I honestly thought he is already in after Nice and all that Tohoku stuff. Speed skater Kato is mentioned in this particular article. Among others Kohei Uchimura comes to my mind, without checking the net, together with another gymnast Rie Tanaka, as well as Ryosuke in swimming, Saori Yoshida in wrestling, Sakura Japan national team. And of course- Daisuke Takahashi and Mao Asada.

    Way to go! Not a translation but here's a brief blurb about it in English: http://www.japantimes.co.jp/text/sp20130118t1.html

    Thank you for the link. It is so beautiful. I wanted to see it very much because it had a good reputation over the net. He is just getting better and better every time he skates to it. He puts so much emotion to the skating. The song is a message song. It can be a message for everyone, but I think he is sending a message particularly to his fellow Tohoku people as the lyrics go "Don't give up." "Keep living." He is sometimes in tears when he skates to it.

    Another topic. Hanyu's charity book "Blue Flame" ranked 11th among Amazon's Best of 2012 Books in sports category.

    I posted this in a minor thread, so sorry for double posting. But anyway -- I uploaded subs for the NHK documentary on Yuzuru Hanyu. Two other Youtube users have kindly filled in the gaps and corrected the mistakes.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5djBbHdVY9g

    Any more comments/corrections are welcome! I am currently working on translating a shorter interview, and I hope you wouldn't mind if I post the Youtube links here, as well.
