In the pj Kwong interview she said she was not sure Hanyu 100% healthy since 4cc and she heard rumblings in that way. Any news on this? I for one hope Chan, Hanyu and Takahashi are all healthy and have great competitions.
Ten years from now I think I’ll… have landed a quad axel. Just kidding (lol). But, I’ll be 27? Will my body be holding up then… I think I’ll be done when I’m 22-23. Retired then I guess? If I continued 10 years from now, it’ll be tough on my body.
What will skating be like 10 years from now?
Not sure about 10 years from now but… when I’m 22-23, I’ll have evolved as a skater. Right now, there are a lot of younger skaters who are great at dancing. If they get their jumps together, our generation probably won’t be able to win! Also, the skaters the same age as me haven’t moved up to seniors yet. Once they move up, we can compete side-by-side… and I think a new quad era will come. In that era, I want to be a skater who can stand at the very top until the very end along the lines of Takahashi and Patrick.
retiring in 2018?
He is probably being realistic about how much tolls his body can take from quad training. Quad axel yeah baby...
