  1. this is adorable!! you captured his mischievous eyes very well. it reads 100% yuzu lol
  2. Thank you so much 🥰
  3. oh wow, I'm both shocked and not shocked. This was a hard season for her even though she pulled out fine at the end. Even Alina stayed 1 more year after Olympics. But Anya is "already" 17 and has already won worlds. Good luck to Anna in her post-competition life.
  4. Hi, welcome to the planet!! Hope you enjoy it here! I think Yuzu had not been to TCC nor trained with TCC coaches for many years (mostly due to covid at first, but now probably because he has his own goals and vision for his skating). It's possible he didn't want to give others the impression that his strategy for these Olympics (for example, pursuing the 4A above winning) was anyone's decision but his own. I think it's a pretty considerate thing for Yuzu to do, tbh, and doesn't imply at all that he had a falling out with Brian and Tracy. He wanted to take responsibility for his own skating for better or for worse.
  5. haha i certainly haven't seen every video published of Yuzu ever 😅 but if anyone has this i would love to see it pretty please
  6. now i know why he is so adamant to try it. he is SO close. and the rotation is without question.
  7. A work of art. Can I steal this poster and put it in my room? Wait no, I would never be able to get any work done...
  8. Interpretation should be yeeted from PCS too... I mean it's often quite obvious who has more interpretation than others but it's never judged correctly (and still, very subjective, people have different preferences) and so we shouldn't even give judges the lever to be corrupt. Just yeet it all. PCS should be: - Edge quality (probably measurable by software) - Transitions (measurable by software) - Speed (already measured) and ice coverage (already measured) - Okay, we can squash composition and choreography into one - for well balanced programs, those little details, etc. Each category should be equally weighted. And they are often tradeoffs of each other -- if you have more transitions you usually have less speed. If you spend more time on deep edges (i.e. Patrick Chan) you won't have as many transitions either... but that's ok, they are judged equally. That's the beauty of diversity of styles and skills, rewarding skaters for their strengths. If you happen to have all of the above then give em ✨all the points✨
  9. Program components need a revamp, but to get rid of "presentation" and add in more objective categories like speed, ice coverage, etc. (basically split out skating skills into more categories).
  10. Let's talk about Nathan in the Team USA Thread I think not everyone in this thread wants to hear about Nathan especially after such an emotional Olympics...so let's keep this topic about Yuzu! (I moved some posts even though they were slightly relevant to Yuzu too but mostly about Nathan) https://planethanyu.com/topic/59-team-usa/
  11. While I agree that sometimes it goes too far, I think that's the problem with unfair scoring and corruption to begin with. When you have unfair scoring you can't really draw a clear line between respecting other skaters' efforts and calling out unfairness; when the trust is broken people stop having confidence in the system (even if the results *might* be the same regardless). It becomes difficult to find a common ground for fans to talk respectfully about all skaters (and competition results, and skating in general...) It's not an easy problem to solve if people have lost trust in the system, and I've seen it across figure skating fandoms. Even retired competitive skaters have joined in on losing faith in it all... I don't think it's possible to have a figure skating community that isn't at least a little negative at this pt, it's like we all hate each other and hate skating That being said we should stop focusing on other skaters and try to shift the attention to Yuzu instead in the General Yuzuru Chat...
  12. I agree ✨ let's try to celebrate the good things more can we? and while discussing competitors is a natural part of the conversation, let's not turn it into bashing other skaters needlessly or focusing on them. Thank you @Hanmgse for the translation of Javi's words...while disappointing, they are ultimately his problem, not Yuzu's. It would be nice to not give more weight to his words by paying them any more attention. There are threads for other skaters in the Team Other Skaters section if you would like to chat about Yuma, Shoma, Nathan, Javi, etc...
  13. Here's one thread that you can revive https://planethanyu.com/topic/809-if-it-wasnt-for-yuzuru-id-never-have/
