    Roman Sadovsky was born on May 31, 1999 and is 19 years of age. Keegan Messing was born on January 23, 1992 and is, as you say, 26 years of age. Yuzuru was born on December 7, 1994 and is four and half years older than Roman and almost 3 years younger than Keegan. In a way, it might have been more of a thrill for Keegan because at his age, he probably thought that he was over the hill and would never have imagined sharing the podium with an Olympic champion and 2 double world champions.

    Yes, he must've felt the same as Keegan Messing the year before at the ACI when he was third and shared the podium with the 2 top guys in the sport, Yuzuru Hanyu and Javier Fernandez. Yuzu was only 17 when he won the bronze medal and shared the podium with Patrick Chan and Daisuke Takahashi at the 2012 World Championships in Nice. He showed unabashed joy at winning the bronze medal. That was in April 2012. In December 2012 at the Grand Prix Final in Sochi, Yuzu beat Patrick Chan and shared the podium again with Daisuke Takahashi winning gold and Patrick Chan in third place. A year after that, in December 2013 at the Grand Prix Final in Fukuoka, he beat Patrick Chan cleanly in both the short program and free skate to win his first GPF. Two months after that, Yuzu, barely 19 years old, won his first Olympic gold medal. Yuzu really is extra special.

    Have you seen the 2012 Skate America Exhibition version? He was 17 years old and this was the first Grand Prix event with Brian Orser. Broke the world record in the short program and had a splat fest in the free. Still ended up with silver.

    I am late to this topic, but may I suggest making it "Lord of the Rinks"?

    Was live streaming of last year's ACI blocked outside of Canada? There was a Japanese broadcasting company at ACI last year, I think.

    The ISU is always shooting itself in the foot. What is the rationale behind this? There probably is no rationale. Just a knee-jerk reaction to block everything. Instead of making the sport more inclusive, they are making it more exclusive. They will make it exclusive to the point of extinction.

    Exactly! And Nessie teases us with little glimpses, just like Yuzu.

    Me too! But why not both? Or all three?

    We should put a paper banner around the plushy Nessie: "NESSIE" THE LOCH NESS MONSTER AKA QUAD AXEL

    "Ogopogo" is the Canadian Loch Ness monster which has been sighted from time to time in Okanagan Lake in British Columbia. It was just sighted and briefly captured on video the other day. https://globalnews.ca/video/4442421/did-a-kelowna-man-capture-ogopogo-on-video Could this be a foreshadowing??? Nessie sighted in Canadian waters so recently?

    Yuzu is now the elephant in the room.

    Yuzu revisiting "Modern Times" wearing baggy janitor overalls and sporting a fake moustache?

    But he does seem to miraculously recover... EDIT: Sorry for the consecutive posts!

    Maybe a part refund... At least the youth and beauty part is working.

    Looking at the videos of his visit to the school, Yuzu looks younger than ever. I wonder if he has a life-size portrait of himself hidden in a closet slowly growing old and fading à la Dorian Gray.
