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.
Oh please, let me defend the samurai kid !!Originally Posted by zydeco88;727951 [[I
( 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 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.

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.
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?
