    I apologize if I wasn't clear

    I 've read the pigeon post from your post #1313

    Yuzuru Hanyu 羽生結弦選手 (JPN), 2012 World bronze medalist
    I am quite satisfied with my program. I put everything I am capable of at this important time into my program. I appreciate everyone and everything for this experience.
    I touched my knee and my ankle at the end of my program to thank them for supporting me.
    After Four Continents I became ill and I missed 10 days of practice. Once I was better I went to training too hard without Brian (Orser). I should have taken a slow start, but I trained too hard, did quad toe and quad Salchow. So I injured my left knee (ligament injury), but I am pretty happy I did my best.


    hope it helps

    Certainly just bad luck. Maybe it's just another test. I just remembered Kevin also injured his knee after 4CC, two unlucky boys. Wish both Yuzu and Kevin a speedy recovery.

    4CC, such a mystery.

    This fan has kindly translated the whole IFS article on Yuzu into Japanese. Since the magazine is still on sale, I'm just gonna share some interesting tidbits from there:
    1. Javi and Yuzu constantly spurs each other on as they continue to grow while strengthening their friendship and that creates a very good training atmosphere. Both of them are gentlemanly and polite. Orser thinks that even though they have polar opposite personalities, describing Javi as more of a free spirit while Yuzuru a bit sheltered, they get on extremely well with each other. Javi is like an elder brother figure to Yuzu who cares for his well-being. When Javi falls on his jumps, Yuzu helps him up. When Yuzu manages to land his quad salchow, Javi gives him an applause. During program run-throughs, they encourage each other. It is perhaps comforting to them to train with somebody who's in the same boat, who experiences similar stress and pressure.
    2. Recently, Yuzu has started studying sports science to prepare for Sochi Olympics. He wants to learn how to control his nerves and deal with the pressures from the media, spectators and judges alike.
    3. He says that 2014 Sochi Olympics will not be the end of his competitive career. He'd like to continue competing post-Sochi and thinks he might retire post-2018. However, nothing is definite.
    4. At first, he was worried re 4S being incorporated into his free program as he thought that it would be difficult to land the jumps in competitions.
    5. He says that he can execute 3A three times in a row and mentions that he has done a 4S-3A sequence in an ice show before. However, the writer (Tatjana Flade) says that we shouldn't get our hopes up and expect him to perform them in real competitions, at least not this season, as Yuzu says that it'd be difficult to incorporate them into competitive programs.

Also, all things depend on his body condition probably. For example he has to deal with the jet leg, but he doesn't know how."
    Thanks for the link to the full article, let's talk! And for the translation bit as well!

    It was never said that that wasn't the most important thing during the past season, just that it will be the focus of the upcoming season.

    Party on

    I just saw the picture at the tumblr. I have never heard of a skater sending a bouquet to thank for music. Just speechless!
    Are these casts performing in Japan?

    Speaking of a genius, the British commentators also called Yuzu an absolute genius during the FS at Worlds!

    Yes, and the two gentlemen said they are massive fans of Yuzuru after that.

    Yes, that was such a shame since he was in really good shape during 4CC, did clean run throughs in official practice with wonderful speed and power, and executed lots of beautiful 4S...

    The way he said that in the interview just makes me go

    I checked out their FB page, the cast was performing in Japan at the time! (I really like this little dancing icon)

    Yuzu sent the bouquet earlier this month when the cast was performing in Tokyo Theatre. Here's a bigger resolution of the picture from Notre Dame official Japanese twitter. Seems that the one who's assigned to perform the musicals in Japan is the Canadian cast. So he might've gotten the wind of the play from one of his Canadian acquaintances or have attended one of their plays before while in Canada to get some inspiration for his free. Whatever it is, it's really sweet and thoughtful of him to send the bouquet.

    Yes, they are still performing in Japan. Their last show will be somewhere in April, I believe.

    Congrats on your graduation, Yuzuru!
    (Hopefully there will be some media coverage on this tomorrow, just like what they did with Kanako)

    And a nice fan MV featuring adorable shots of Yuzu:

    Marker? For signing autographs?

    But finally I decided to show my support for Yuzuru even if it's just one post.

    I used to be one of those who criticised his changing location and coaching, but I felt worse than anything and thought it was useless to wish something we can't control.
    Yuzuru makes his own decisions and whatever they are, we can't prevent him for doing it. So we just have to accept it, if not, it's like banging your head against a wall, it hurts.
    wxunxx's 1st post made me realised this. And I feel better now, thinking that way.
    So like she/he said, let's trust Yuzuru and wait. And congratulation for his graduation! Party on!
    Welcome, Yunamao!

    Congratulations on your graduation, Yuzuru!! He must have been very happy to attend the ceremony

    Welcome! I was like you too. I was not excited at all about his coach changing at first. But when I watched Yuzu's skating from Filandia Trophy, I noticed that something changed in his skating skill in a good way. And after reading and watching many interviews with Orser, I became convinced that the coach change was a good move for Yuzu. Building a stamina takes time. I believe that Yuzu will improve more in every aspect next season.

    Congratulations on Yuzu's graduation!
