    See twitter thread for more. Also, @Yatagarasu, where art thou!? Yuzuru has an 'homage' to you in his Origin costume.
  2. 4CC is smack in the middle of the school year for Nathan. It doesn't fall on a school break like his GP assignments and the Final did, so he'd have to miss classes to attend. Hence, not likely he will go.

    Yuzuru was interviewed by "Shinken zemi", a correspondence education system using postal/parcel delivery service. @yude at GS translated it and you can find it here https://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?74832-Yuzuru-Hanyu-2018-2019&p=2286858&viewfull=1#post2286858

    We don't know the rules so for all she knew she could film that snippet.

    He was obviously stroking slowly and carefully, testing the ice and the feel on his ankle, so if anyone looks at this video and decides to think 'ah, he was lying to skip Nationals!' then they're just dumb and I couldn't care less about their narratives. This is obviously part of on-ice rehab. By the way, he was also back to the ice last December after his injury but the pain continued so he apparently didn't go back on ice after that until early January.

    BTW, just to see the difference between a 4T2T and a 4T3T, Shoma's best score for his 4T2T in the SP was still lower than a base value 4T3T, hence why I chose to do 4T3T at 0 GOE than 4T2T at its best GOE, which is basically what he's landed so far in his SP, when he doesn't +COMBO it.

    Yeah, I used only the best GOE across competitions per segment, so even if Shoma's best 4F score was in his FS, I only used his best GOE for the 4F in his SPs for that segment. Since both segments are different beasts, I like to differentiate. I also tend to choose GOE only for jumps done in the second half only from that second half, even when they've been done them in previous layouts in the first half, but I fudged it a bit with Yuzu's 4T because his only solo second half 4T was an underrotated mess and I didn't have any other values to go off on. I'm finishing off the ladies, just want to add in two junior girls in the mix first.

    I don't know if this has been posted yet but there's a cool write up by Max Aaron about Yuzuru in the Dominant 20 ESPN ranking in the print version of the magazine. Credit to shiroKJ at GS

    Is there speculation whether this was an imposed change by Team China or a choice?

    It's not confirmed by JSF yet, only speculation given the time frame of his recovery. Either way, I don't think it'll be a surprise if he WDs from Nationals. He doesn't have time to prepare for it even if his rehab goes well. And we really don't need him hurrying up practice.

    It was TSL and I despise them for it. Saying this was 'a blessing in disguise' to prevent him from peaking at GPF reveals a lack of sensitivity and empathy. Not, it really wasn't a blessing in disguise. Getting injured is never a blessing. Peaking at GPF is NOT worse than 3 weeks rest and a month of rehab and a busted ankle that may never recover fully.

    @Rainbow, thank you so much for these translations!
