    Hehehe... love these I didn't realise Zijun is so tall, must be the heels. Hanyu must be like 170 175 by now? What is his height.

    From the 4CC SP small medal ceremony, Yuzuru, Han, and Ricky all seem to be about the same height, and are listed as 170, 165, 173 or 5'7", 5'5", 5'8" erespectively. My guess is 170-175.

    Yuzuru is artificially making himself shorter in that picture. Watch for your posture, kiddo!!!

    ETA: Zijun with Han for comparison.

    Yep, must be the heels and imo, Yuzu slouched his body too much when pics were taken. 171 is his official height, but who knows he has gotten taller since the last measurement.

    More fooling around from the boys (Yuzu & Misha Ge):

    Han Yan should be one year older than Yuzuru..
    How come he becomes two years younger now.. mysterious!
    I enjoy watching Han Yan skating,, think he has so much potential..
    but the mystery about his real age bother me a bit...
    maybe just don't care and enjoy watching the two Hans compete with each other

    Chinese Fed has been known to falsify the ages of their athletes more than a couple of times before, so it's not surprising if it is indeed true (I suggest you read this FSU thread). Seems that it was also written somewhere in Yuzu's autobiography that he felt frustrated losing to Yan who was one year older than him at the 2005 Asian Novice Champs (can anyone who has the autobiography please clarify this?) As you said, such trivia doesn't really matter as long as we enjoy watching them skate.

    High possibility that Han Yan is actually 18-19 years of age. He won some Chinese competitions in 2008 which he was reported to be 14 years old.
    The level of his skate is very ok for a 18-19 years old boy... what a shame that Chinese Fed fake his real age.. unfair not only to other skaters but also to Han Yan.
    Now many people pay attention to him,, but many like me feel mysterious about his change of age.
    Yes, Yuzuru has wrote about Yan in his autobiography.. wonder how he felt when he found his first rival in life now became younger than him.

    Yuzuru wrote in blue flames that he himself was the youngest competitor (p. 147).
    Well, anyway, Han Yan is a good skater, and a good competitor for Yuzuru.
    He wrote in blue flames that he was so much looking forward to compete with Han Yan.
    And they look very good together in photos.

    Well, this is Yuzuru fan thread, so whether it's true or not, it has nothing to do with here.
