  1. The pictures shouldn't be anywhere because it would be best if everyone respected his and his family's privacy.
  2. It's better if those pictures remain on weibo. It's sad that someone follows him and his mother in Canada and takes pictures of them.
  3. I still have one bar Ghana chocolate that I bought last February when I was in Korea. I bought it only because of Yuzu! I would like to melt it into a Hot chocolate like he did. Anyone knows the recipe? (I am sure I read one before but I don't know anymore where...).
  4. Team Japan is going to be interesing! Kao apparently jumped 4T and 4S at the JGP selection competition, so I'm curious if he'll get a spot. It'd be the first time that Shun, Kao and Yuma compete against each other at JGP. I hope Nastya will be fine, too. It'd be great to see her in JGP series. Tarusina also stays in junior it seems. I'm also looking forward to Sinitsyna - she's a lovely skater. Valieva's and Alysa Liu's debut will be ofc exciting to watch. I also hope Alysa will focus more on the quality of her technique and overall improvement of her skating.
  5. I feel Roger lost it more than Novak won it. Overall he played better but as you say, in the most crucial points including his championships ball he made very costly errors. But congrats to Nole as well, his mental strength is quite fantastic. Hope it won't haunt Roger as much as 2008...but it was really painful to watch as a fan. He said he's skipping Montreal and we'll see him in Cincinnati next time. Physical recovery will take some time. And now that Wimbledon is over, I'll focus on some other sports the next few weeks. Fencing World Championships is this week in my city, it's a qualifying event for the Olympics. Aquatics Worlds is something that I always enjoy to watch, too. It has started last week and Hungary won the first gold medal, I am really happy about that. One touching moment was that when he won the gold medal, he put his medal around the neck of a Sudani swimmer who finished 61st - last place. The officials wanted the Sudani swimmer to stop because he reached the time limit of the race, but he insisted finishing the 5km distance. So the gold medalist went to him after the race and told him he's a champion, too because he didn't give up and finished the race - and he put his gold medal around his neck. We have many great swimmers, and water polo is also strong (though not as strong as 10-15 years ago when our men's team won three consecutive Olympic golds!). Canoeing Worlds - another qualifying competition for Tokyo 2020 - is coming in August in my country and I have a ticket for one day. And when that one is over, we'll have the first junior Grand Prix event, so the figure skating season will start then!
  6. Samodurova's new programs: SP: Bamboleo by Gipsy Kings FS: Roxanne from Moulin Rouge
  7. New interview with Medvedeva on ISU's site https://www.isu.org/figure-skating/news/interviews-fsk/12658-evgenia-medvedeva-rus-embraces-changes-in-her-skating-and-her-life?templateParam=15
  8. Only a bit more than a month and we'll have the first JGP Event! The assignments for JGP Courchevel will come out within a week or so (deadline is Friday this week). There are many skaters who're turning senior this season - the 3As of course, then You Young, Yelim Kim, Ting Cui, Koshiro Shimada, Mitsuki Sumoto, Tomoki Hiwatashi, Conrad Orzel, Camden Pulkinen, Roman Savosin, Ice Dancers Shevchenko/Eremenko, Lajoie/Lagha and Pairs JWC gold medalists Mishina/Galliamov so we won't see them in the juniors next season. But there'll be others who's not moving up and staying (at least partially) - Grassl will do the JGP series probably, Petr Gummenik and Andew Torgashev will also stay junior. I will also be curious how Gogolev will skate next season now that he's training with Raf. Samsonov, Eteri's wunderkid will debut in the juniors, he just turned 14 two days ago. I'm mostly curious about Shun, finally he will also debut in the JGP series should have happened a long time ago tbh .He'll have three quads and two 3As in the free skate (Romeo and Juliet ) - which will be a big weapon! I'm really looking forward how he'll do, and can't wait to cheer for him.
  9. It's possible. The translation is short and maybe something got lost in it.
  10. No worries, I moved some posts in the other thread and hid those that were duplicate. There are some promising music choices in Team Japan! Matrix could be a good choice for Kaori because it's modern and upbeat, also well-known but not really a warhorse (at least it was not used in the past few years too often). Not sure if this piece is Yuna's SP music, but if yes, it's very pretty: I'm curious about The Artist for Koshiro, the SP is very lyrical. Sherlock Holmes could be a good choice for Keiji. I am a bit confused because he said earlier that his choreos would be done in August? He doesn't talk about the music here but the programs. Maybe the basics of the programs are ready and he'd finish the choreo with them in August? I don't know.
  11. New xylitol magnets and four different A4 pictures Not a coincidence that last year's and the new Ice Jewels Photobook have these two colours It was in his calculations!
  12. What an incredible match it was...one of the best I have ever seen. Congratulations to Novak! Roger had so many chances to win this final but he couldn't, this defeat will hurt him a lot, overall he played better today, but I think he beat himself at the most crucial points too
  13. After 12:12 there's tie-break...I'm fainting After two championships points, break points in the 5th set for Roger...
