    General Yuzuru Chat

    Happy Birthday to Michaelis. I hope your health is staying good for many years. I understand your thinking. I am your age too. It's funny that Yuzuru has fans from all ages. Your post on the situation that faced Yuzuru in his pursuit of skating and winning in future competitions makes me very worried. In light of what happened with the results and the judging at World 2019, I don't see how Yuzuru can win in the future against Nathan Chen. For the judges, a clean Nathan with 4-quad will win over a clean Yuzuru with 4-quad because: 1) Base value of Nathan is higher, 2) The judges will give Nathan more GOE than Yuzuru 3) Even Nathan got the same PCS as Yuzuru for now, maybe in the future Nathan will get more PCS than Yuzuru if he keeps winning competitions, 4) Yuzuru wants to increase his Base value by training and adding others quads including quad axel, quad lutz, quad flip in competitions. But his body, his past and present injuries and his age- now he is 24 compared to Nathan 19- all are making this decision very difficult to realise. He has only 1 or 2 or 3 years to do this. Is it enough time to get all those quads? What can happen to his body? More injuries? 5) Even if Yuzuru try to increase his Base value, does he will get the preference of the judges to give him GOE or PCS competitively compared to Nathan? In the end, I don't believe that is a winning battle. I hope that Yuzuru will think of his health first. His health is the priority. He can not train and win competitions if he is not in good health or he is injured. I pray for his health. Please no more injuries. Sorry for my long post and sad feelings.
  2. Yes I agree with your view. I adore Yuzuru, he seems to me the best skater I have ever known. But I like others skaters too, men or ladies, and it is not limited to their nationality being Japanese like Yuzuru. I like all ladies medallists , Alina, Elizabet and Evgenia, each one of them are excellent skaters. After the SP, I thought Alina, Kaori and Evgenia will be on the podium, because I did not believe Elizabet will succeed with the quad sal. But she did and she deserved the silver medal. I am happy for all the medallist. I also admire their courage and determination, after all the difficulties they have been through. Congratulations to all medallists.
  3. Yes I am with you. I am sad that he could not do the quad sal or even the triple sal instead of the pop double sal which is an invalid element. But I am happy that he is still in third in SP with a good score, nearly the same score as Jason in 2nd.And I am happy that he did not fall or get injured because of the fall. The rest of the program is great, no error. He still has the chance for the gold medal or silver medal. And most of all he is still skating, not injured. So we will hold hands, sending him positive energy and our love for him. Good luck in the free.
  4. I am very happy for Alina and Eugenia, after their very difficult competitions this season. For me they are the best competitors. They won Olympics gold medal and silver medal in Pengchang 2018. My dream Podium will be Alina, Kaori and Eugenia. Good luck to all skaters infree grogram
  5. Practice for SP is at 11:00 AM in Japan tomorrow, it means 10:00 PM tonight Monday 18 th March , for us in Eastern Time Zone in Canada, like in Montreal? I think I will stay awake for news here on Planet Hanyu. I will setup the alarm on my cellphone to make sure I don't fall asleep.

    I know you mean this as a fantasy, a dream, an imagination, not really a reality to happen. I understand that you are talking about a hypothetical scenario just for fun. So I add my thoughts about this discussion. No offence even If I have to disagree with this scenario. Sorry to disagree. I love Yuzuru, but I love also he keeps his ankle, his health as a priority, not planning to have a SP with maximum score 130 points. In fact, I hope he never again get injuries while practicing to land 4Lutz, 4A, 4Lo. Those are only jumps, impossible jumps without sustaining injuries. I prefer to see him skating beautifully, without falling or injured, with joy in his skating. No need to win every competition. No need to have maximum score. By the way, I hope no skater will try to do this, even Nathan Chen, Boyang, Shoma, anyone. Even if I am not a fan of those skaters,I don't want them to get injured. I want them to skate as long as they want.So we can enjoy their skating without worrying for them being injured all the time.

    2019 World Team Fukuoka

    World 2020 will be at Centre Bell, in downtown Montreal, near Metro stations, with many buses going there, with Train Station. There are many hotels nearby, Youth Hostel or Auberge de Jeunesse , YMCA, restaurants etc. Centre Bell is home to the NHL hockey team Canadians of Montreal, with capacity of 20,000 seats. I wonder how much tickets Skate Canada will hope to sell to fill up the site. We can only hope that Yuzuru will skate there, otherwise I have doubts that Skate Canada can succeed to fill up the place. World 2020 is in Montreal, my hometown. I will wait until before the competition to buy the tickets, if Yuzuru is confirmed to be there. I have been at GP Skate Canada in Laval (near Montreal) last November 2018 because I already bought the tickets early hoping to see Yuzuru there. So for me it was not a happy competition to attend. The arena in Laval is smaller and not sold out for the competition. Happy New Year 2019 for all. Especially good health, healthy ankles for Yuzuru.

    Looking for Nicole Zarate

    Hi Nicole or LittleLottie I read the article on Japan Times about fans and you at Helsinki GP 2018. I am very happy for you to be able to go to see Yuzuru in Helsinki. I too hope to see Yuzuru again next year in 2019 in Canada. He has participated in Skate Canada many times, in Autumn Classics at least 3 or 4 times already. I was lucky to be able to see him skate many times in Canada since World in 2013 at Skate Canada and at Autumn Classics. World 2020 , not 2019 sorry, will be in Montreal my hometown, Canada. World 2019 in March 2019 will be in Saitama, Japan. I hope he will get well, heal his ankle and return to competition soon. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all. I edit to correct the error.

    I am very sad it is confirmed now that Yuzuru is still injured and he has to WD from Japan Nationals. I am only worried for his ankle. I know this is very sad for him to miss Japan Nationals 2018 again for the third year, a competition he wants to participate the most. i don't care what the haters say about him or his WD, even if he is in good health and skate at Nationals, they still are the haters and say what ever their sick mind want to say. We can do nothing about it. In the future, I hope Yuzuru will restrain himself in training, no quad axel or quad loop. I prefer he still skate and compete in good health than being injured. I pray for Yuzuru's good health and happiness in new year 2019.

    Really Yuzuru is back in Toronto right now? I am so happy to know he is back to his second home in Canada. He is very loved here in Canada. Happy Birthday to you dear Yuzuru. I hope someone show him the big birthday card that his fans put for him in the bus stop in front of the Cricket Club.
  11. In the absence of Yuzuru, I hope Nathan will win. I prefer Nathan to the other Shoma. For the ladies, I hope Alina will win.

    This article must be from some haters I suppose. They seem to enjoy every occasion they can seize when Yuzuru is injured to say bad things about him. Just ignore them. We can do nothing about them. Let them enjoy what they can find in their unhappy life.

    Happy Birthday to dear Yuzuru. I wish you good health, happiness and great successes in skating competitions and in life. I have seen the video of Finnish TV on Yuzuru and his fans at GP Finland in Helsinki 2018. I am so happy to see the reactions of his fans. Thank you to the poster who made it available to us. Yes we love him because of the person and the skater he is, despite the injuries, the hardships he encountered. We are his fans from all over the world, not just Japanese. I am from Canada, Origin from Vietnam. I have met many fans from China, from the US, from Europe, from Asia. We all love him because he speaks to our heart. We are from all ages.
  14. The same with me an old Aunty myself and many of my friends in my age. I know many Auntys and Mamies and Grannies who are fans of Yuzuru. When we meet up, we have fun talking about our love for Yuzuru. He has fans of all ages. Look at the blond boy and the flowers girls. I don't blame them. For me they are right to show affection and love for their beloved skater.
  15. Thank you @Sammie and Sydney Maria to give us translation of French commentaries of SP Otonal of Yuzuru. I am French Canadian, and for me it is a disgrace to French TV and to me a French speaking Canadian.. I don't know who they are, what are their names? Somebody has said that those commentators for French tv are Nathalie Pechelat a ICe Dance skater who retired after Sochi in 2016, and the man is Alban Preaubert, a French skater who retired in 2010. What can I say. They seem to be fixated on their presumption that Yuzuru try to imitate his idols Weir in Otonal SP and Pluschenko in Origin FS. They criticized Yuzuru as trying to take the credit for himself, to erase what Weir has done in the past with the same music. It is so absurd, so unfair, so untrue. The program Otonal of FP of Weir is completely different from Otonal SP of Yuzuru, with different choreographer, different technical content, different layout. Even the costume that seem to interest the French commentators the most is different from Weir, different style, different body line. The costume of Weir is all blue, the pant and the bodice in the same piece. It is not the same costume with Yuzuru. What can I say? They seem to base their conclusions on their fake presumption. I don't want to say more, I don't want to be impolite, in case I can be censured by the administrators.
