I have many favourite moments, I love this thread.
I suddenly remember the first time I saw him live, at his first practice in Helsinki, worlds.
I was a fanyu since Nice 2012, so I new — in theory — about his murderface and how fast he is. But on this day I was almost shocked and my first thoughts were: omg he looks so angry..OMG, he is so fast!!
I will never forget this day.
And then, before the free, when his group was anounced for the warm— up, he did not stand in line, quietly, but skated off, moving, doing his own thing...there I saw how extra, extra special he is...😉
