This anecdote does nothing to dispel my image of Hanyu as a "boy in a man's world."
It's a low level "B" competition. He's the class of the field. It's not as though he's been sent there without a coach or support of any kind.
He's nervous because he has to wait for his turn by himself while Wilson took a first-hand look at the competition???
Did Wilson cut his meat for him at mealtime? Was he expected to tuck him in at night?
Has he gotten rid of his Pooh Bear, or is he still dragging that around?
This "Prima donna with a sensitive soul" routine has lost it's charm.
giulia95, I think you can stop now. Even though as you claim Orser and IMG might chosen to favor Fernandez, who’s in their same company, so what? The result already came out, and Hanyu already overcame all those problems as you mentioned – IMG, coach not with him, etc. and beat Fernandez and all other men who have shown up in the early season. So you should be satisfied and stop, right? I hope you can go back to the fan fest thread to celebrate instead of debating with others here.
