    Anyone able to find the small medal ceremony for the FS where Yuzuru would get his Bronze? I haven't been able to find it. Thanks

    to One Gutsy Performance from Yuzuru at London Worlds!
    Hope he will soon come back home to be united with his family in Sendai and rest as much as needed to get healthy again.

    I admire his fighting spirit, but gosh, the way he skates while being severely injured/exhausted/ill often scares me...I pray to the skating god that he does not end up making his competitive career shorten, in spite of his enourmous talent, efforts and devotions. Take a really good care of yourself, Yuzu.

    I just hope that they will figure out something that better suits him, well because y'know, whether you like it or not, he's going to stick with this team at least until Sochi Olympics, and even longer if they succeed in helping him attain his goal.
    Oh please, let me defend the samurai kid !!
    ( I’ve just realized he yelled while gasping at the end of the FS!!)!!!

    How could he be even partially responsible of the widely announced struggle in London ?

    How could he have overtrained himself when he used to train half/one third of the actual daily training?

    Yes, he hates to lose and his amazing attitude made him cry with frustration in the 4CC K&C as well as in London where (thanks to his stunning samurai spirit) he could have easily won the gold medal if he had had the last year preparation and programs,IMO.

    Actually it doesn’t seem the new team has just succeeded in helping him attain his goal, and I don't know how much comfortable he feels, but London Medalists say “thanks“ for the very good job : no Yuzuru on the podium this year! !

    I read somewhere before that he's currently committed to 3-4 hours of on-ice training a day, so if you take into account the off-ice training, physical and mental conditioning, the fact that he had to deal with the stress juggling his studies in between, making frequent trips between Canada and Japan, this training regimen could have backfired and severely deteriorated his health. But I agree with pitterpatter that we can't entirely blame his coaching team for what has happened. He could have very well overtrained himself while not under his coach's supervision. Cos how would we know if he didn't? We're not physically there with him to witness what has actually transpired during his training. This kid is just 18 but he's already burdened with lots of responsibility. He has to live up to people's expectations of him as a young talented figure skater. He can't allow himself to be dismissed as a run-of-the-mill competitor or a failure. He hates to lose, is driven to win and is a highly competitive individual.
    And of course, a portion of the blame should go to JFS for overworking their top skaters more than they can handle.
    Anyway, it was really commendable that he was capable of making a comeback and redeeming himself in the free this time after a series of disasters in the practice sessions leading up to it except the last one. And I'm sure that it wasn't solely due to his strong determination but also because of the help and support from his team. I just hope that they will figure out something that better suits him, well because y'know, whether you like it or not, he's going to stick with this team at least until Sochi Olympics, and even longer if they succeed in helping him attain his goal.
    ITA!!

    I understand we are all worried about him in different ways. He is just a precious skater.
    My personal wish for Yuzuru next season is: stay healthy, less shows, less traveling time, less media hype. Of course, two good and passionate programs, too

    Cheering for him, I feel like I am his mother even though I am not a mother in my real life.
    I can't help it, sorry Yuzuru!!

    There were a lot of Dai fans in the audience and one saw them everywhere. The Dai posters and banners were more than for any other skater.
    I dont remember the exact ex program but I am sure you can youtube it. Its only the second time I am seeing Dai and there is no question that he uses every beat of the music. Mind you I liked his Blues at last year's GPF better. His musicality is matched only by Jeffrey Buttle and Lambier. Kurt has it now but not in his amateur career.
    My first worlds and so many wonderful memories.

    Orser is just a scumbag. From SA I was saying that hanyuflation works only for Canadians. The sceme was to destroy the confidence of both J-guys (Yuzu heard the polite silence at JN that didn't add anything good in his spirit). Plus the unadequate coaching policy. The result was observed in London- both Japanese were off the podium and last year they both were on. What I don't get is what Hashimoto really wants. She cannot be that stupid not to see what is going on.

    Yag was 17 and Plu was 18 when they won Worlds. I don't remember that anyone ever called them "kid". Because they looked healthy and strong. Yuzu doesn't. I wonder how long this image of "kid" is going to be exployed. Soon facial hair will show up. Moreover, repetitive cacellation of his participations in galas, shows, events like WTT that are held in his home country, due to sick days that always happen so conveniently, doesn't bring any popularity of his image and trust in the country with strong corporate culture. But why anyone in CC should care about his future if the contract expires in 2014 (?).

    but Mao left Arutunian in 2008 ( because of linguistic barrier and homesickness if I remember correctly) just before Worlds and won the gold medal coachless.....

    Overtraining under the context of current training regimen, in the sense that he overexerts himself and practices jumps more than he's supposed to, especially when he's not under supervision and when his physical condition doesn't allow him to do so (we know that he likes to challenge himself and try to land a triple axel at the end of training sessions when he's completely exhausted to see how far his stamina can hold), which could possibly incur injuries.
    I'm actually not denying that his team should be held accountable for his current condition to a certain extent, while not dismissing some other factors that might have attributed to his poor showing in London. I didn't straight-out blame him partially responsible for what had happened. It's all about what he "could have" not what he did.

    You mean the lady in glasses @1:01? She might be one of JSF officials.

    On an unrelated note, has anybody gotten a hold of the IFS magazine? It seems that it's written there that he is now capable of doing triple 3A sequence (3A-3A-3A). At least that's what I read from a Japanese forum. Clarification, anybody?

    On the contrary, what could they benefit from not doing their job properly in the long run? It would just add more taints to their current track records which is undesirable, especially since their reputation hasn't exactly been palpable since Yuna left (Gao, Rippon, Gedevanishvili) with the exception of Javi.
