    On the whole I'm very happy for Yuzu today (despite him not winning and being confirmed he's still on painkillers), but still, this is the happiest world silver medal I've known. His inner fighting spirit never ceases to amaze me, and I still feel that everything coming after Pyeonchang is a bonus. Actually, I am overjoyed he's being a two-time Olympic and World champion who is still posing a major threat to all these new kids who have two healthy ankles. I wish him to be healed enough to get rid of the painkillers and then fulfill his dream of doing a 4A on the big stage. Actually, him winning an ultimate world championship with this kind of jump would be the best possible outcome to end his career. I don't want to see him go as far as Beijing because I don't want him to get injured yet again. But whatever will be his choices, I'll support him 100%. Now go rest Yuzu, you so deserve it! And thank u again

    Hi, I haven't had the time to follow everything closely at all, and haven't even watched Yuzu's SP programme yet, as I want to watch everything once the competition is over, but I would say this: the mistake in the SP brings me back to Worlds 2014 and 2017, with pretty much the same scenario. Sure Yuzu has a lot of ground to make up and Nathan seems very solid, but I know how these kinds of situations where Yuzu has his back against the wall can fuel him. So stop being sad, and simply believe in his capability to make miracles happen. Sure he's in been injured and is most probably not completely recovered yet, so I don't expect him to set a record or anything, but I simply enjoy every second I can see Yuzu on the ice while this could have ended after Pyeonchang. Whatever the final result, I simply wish he'll be able to give his all and be satisfied with what he will produce. But all he needs right now is a lot of positive energies coming from all of us
  3. Yes, he likes this spot. He skated first during the last Olympics's SP.

    To me Ballade in GPF 14 is one of the programmes I'm most emotionally attached to, because I remember how relieved I felt once he'd finished it (that accident in China had made quite an impression one me). He looked so calm and simply happy at the end, that, no matter he fell, it was just magical. I remember thinking he looked like he was floating on the ice, looking light and evanescent, yet so strong. As for LGC at GPF 16, it still remains to me one of his most memorable performances: I think even the save of the loop at the beginning is part of the show actually

    Oh my god I'm laughing so much right now. These captions translated in my language gives a very weird romantic vibe to the whole thing (like 'the romantic silhouette' or 'oh my god is it filmed? or 'Keegan is in between us'...). Anyway, this both gave me a good laugh and made me kind of nostalgic!

    Happy birthday Yuzu! May you rise and shine again
  7. Hello, since the date is now fast approaching, I'm just reminding people here that my tickets are stil available. I will be at the show too so we can of course meet up with whoever might be interested in purchasing these seats. See you (maybe) around !

    100 (and counting!) Reasons To Love Yuzuru Hanyu

    15. For the way he is not afraid of simply being himself: stubborn and charming, hard-working and a dork, a child and a man, sometimes too intense and yet so open and generous, strong and vulnerable, thankful and proud... so famous, and yet so true to himself.
  10. I remember him asking for his autograph and saying « what? I’m his fan! ». Well it’s very heart-warming to see that despite training one of his direct competitors, he is not afraid of openly admiring him this way. His words are my thought exactly
  11. I have to say, the thought flickered in my mind too... And maybe it is the universe's way to stop Yuzu from literally winning everything. Just think about all the victories he could have had with a less fragile physical structure, two healthy ankles and no asthma... But at the same time, Yuzu wouldn't be who he is without all these trials... he's learned to always be stronger than the pain, and he is still learning how to make the best of what he has... Truly an extraordinary person. After all these years following him, my admiration still knows no bounds!
  12. I've just listened to the French commentary and I don't even know why I bothered... I was utterly shocked at what they said: no personality? Ego trip ?? Lack of transitions ??? Saving energy just to do the jumps ???? I think they reached new levels of WT*

    Yes, that's the one comment that rubbed me the wrong way. But I think he just doesn't 'get' Yuzu, (and didn't do his homework properly of course ^^)

    I wasn't too sure of who the commentator was, but yeah, I agree with you on this one ^^

    As I said, French people like to complain a lot ^^ and are sometimes a bit too conformist in their view (I remember that one time where I caught up Yuzu on TV during the gala where he was performing Notte Stellata: I was actually quite surprised at the female commentator who was shocked at Yuzu's costume - probably because it was a bit too 'feminine' by her standards). So I think here the problem might be that Yuzu's style of clothing might be a bit too 'flamboyant' ? i.e, a bit too 'Weiresque' ^^. Of course I don't want to create stereotypes, but I must say, for having lived in other countries than my own, there is a lack in freedom in French people's style of clothing that you don't find in other countries. That's how I somehow perceived this remark. However, I think in any case Alban Préaubert (the commentator) didn't necessarily understand the extent to which this programme was a real tribute here, and not simply Yuzu drawing a lot from Johnny because of a lack of inspiration, or worse, personality, as he seemed to imply.
