    Takahito Mura

    I've searched and searched and searched in Fan Fests and I can't find a thread for Mura, so that's why I'm creating it now.

    I just saw a clip which shows Mura doing a 4T-4T jump (@1:14)!!

    Impressive! I wasn't really a fan during previous seasons but I am now. I hope he continues to do well.

    Do all skaters have thighs like that? Couldn't understand his explanation though...

    Ok. This is what Mura said: "If you need to jump 2 quads, or 3 quads later, the more quads you jump, it is more probable that the last jump will be under-rotated. I believe those muscles are necessary in order to prevent that from happening."

    I can't believe that this thread has been quite for over three months although he has made a productive season. Mura's performance has been inconsistent but could be great when his quads hit hard. As I'm getting to fond of his skating, I hope all the best for him at the Worlds.

    Lol, I'm looking at this thread, and realized I had seen Mura's 4T-4T before the "Favourite Jump Combos" thread appeared. Then I asked for it again 'cause I forgot. This is embarrassing.

    Good luck, Mura! Not betting on you for any predictions games, since I jinxed you at 4CC.

    The video clip also takes Tatsuki's episode regarding his fans holding Japanese flags during the award ceremony at 2014 Worlds, so I introduced it to Machida's fanfest.
    Therefore you could've seen the clip more than on one occasion.

    Stop! I feel like such an idiot! (though in all honesty, I'm quite sure I didn't see that video in Tatsuki's thread, and even if I did I didn't see Mura's part [again]. That's my story and I'm sticking with it. )

    So true! For me personally Takahito's is the best phantom of the season among all of men and ladies skaters', actually. Not only his huge 3A and powerful 4T (yes, do matter when it comes to mens skating! ), but also I appreciate his improvements in the last couple of seasons, especially performance-wise and skating skill.

    Good luck to Takahito at the upcoming Worlds!
