  1. Past hour
  2. Anyone know what time the open practice for mens are? I need time to know when I should sneak out of class to stalk twitter Edit: ok I just finished reading through the thread..a lot of pages..... found the time
  3. How cute. He was 17 year old then? So fresh faced and innocent looking. 😌
  4. Not going to lie, that basically heralds back to the golden age of 2015/16 where he was basically breaking the WR's at back to back competitions. So a part of me is like, he's done it before, why are we acting like its that foreign a concept?

    I think it means "harness". I have seen people using similar word for it on Russian FS forums.

    Little infodump in Max and Angelo's podcast tonight: Max spent 3 minutes teasing Angelo on the fact that there's "One athlete" among three athletes who rotated 4A, whom rotated It "senza la canna" (which I'm not sure if he means without falling or clean landing). He didn't say the name, but he was laughing while Angelo kept saying "we should see it though! We should see!" (Also, they spoke about the fact that he hardly wins qualification competitions for the GPF, which is odd but it's his style: so which Hanyu are we gonna see this weekend?)

    Ok, I am just trying to be realistic about GPF result. WTT is not a good example, I agree. And 4CC? ETA Never mind. Probably I just need to wake up to a perfect 4Lz tomorrow morning
  8. It's actually what he wants, as far as I can tell. He wants a high average of skates, in all pre-Olympic events to gain a consistency rep just in time for the Games. Now whether he can pull that off we're going to have to wait and see, but I am pretty sure he aims for a high level of skating throughout the season. The consistency talk is one that has followed him, rightly or wrongly, especially since last season, and that NBC piece also mentioned it, so from that angle too it'd be good for him. There's nothing else for them to go after, he has no real weaknesses so if he can plug this so-called one, then he's in the best position pre JNats and the OG.

    It could have happened, but nerves, pressure, timing, peaking time, etc. all matter, so we don't know if it would have actually happened in a real competition. If WTT counted maybe Yuzu would have done fewer media trips after winning Worlds, delayed his peaking time, been a bit more risky with potential overtraining, etc. Maybe Shoma and Nathan (who was clearly nervous at Worlds) would have felt more pressure. Etc. Butterfly effect!

    *clears throat* It is not just that the total score is non-existent. It is that knowing that it does not exist, the mind-set and the approach are simply different. You have two unconnected segments and you know they're not connected, unlike the regular comps where you know they add up and the first influences the second. It is bound to influence them. So, yes, it could have hypothetically have happened but technically it did not.

    I don't think we should take WTT as an example of what could happen since it was the end of the season and everyone was exhausted
  12. It was- indoors it felt a though the shortest day of the year was early, until you looked outside and saw the weird colour of the sky. Some of these named storms have been nothing but that one - I have relatives in Belfast and it pretty much ground to a halt in terms of normal activities.

    I know about the non-existent total score at WTT. It was fluff competiton, but it could have happened in a real one.
  14. General Yuzuru chat

    Seriously Honestly the only good thing about that is that the skaters get a really nice sum which is of course a lovely bonus but that's about it.
  15. Today
  16. To be honest, I don't even want him to be all that great already. Like, not bombing would be nice, but perfect or close to it, feels to early. What's he gonna do then? Ehm, I guess, do it all over again at every competition ever, but that sounds so exhausting.
  17. General Yuzuru chat

    IKR? It's really a useless competition. No one talks about how Yuzu actually won over everyone at WTT in 2015 after he lost the world title. Because that's just silly
  18. Thanks for telling me this. Guess I'll have to be glued to the Planet and refresh like crazy
  19. General Yuzuru chat

    Technically, they did not. I will fight this point until my dying day
  20. Not that I know of but then, it's always a work in progress, they do want to raise his consistency as much as possible so I think he simply trained the Lz, which helped stabilize the Lo even further. He was probably just dodgy overall today.
  21. General Yuzuru chat

    Well, Nathan and Shoma are already gold medal contenders for the Olympics, so GPF result doesn't change things a lot. Technically both won over Yuzu at WTT. I will be sad if this happens again, but I still believe he can win with two clean programs at the Olys.
