Hi, I have been following Yuzu since after Sochi when I scoured the internet for any information on this beautiful skater. I have watched figure skating over the course of many years, but when I saw the YouTube of Yuzu skating at Worlds in Nice, I was hopelessly hooked and no one else could understand why I suddenly loved to watch men’s figures skating. I used to think men’s figure skating was boring and pretty stiff looking as they prepared for a long time before a jump. But this young, angelic looking boy was jumping out of nowhere and creating a beautiful flow from one element to the next. I joined a skating forum and lurked for the most part. I’m not very good technically so I have always been a little intimidated about all the different apps. Then I did something I have never done before. I went to see Yuzu at Worlds in Boston. It was a mixture of emotions because he was injured, but seeing him skate live was incredible. It didn’t matter that my friends thought I was crazy and that they couldn’t understand when I tried to explain how effortless and other worldly his skating was. I had never been to a skating competition before but I loved his Seimei costume so much that I had to see it live. Pyeongchang olympics were special to me because the programs were the same as those I saw in Boston, but this time he skated victory. I watched his SP and FS live and was screaming at the tv when he won. My family, friends and coworkers all know the name Yuzuru Hanyu or that Japanese skater that won two gold medals. They still think I’m crazy, but I love watching him skate and respect and admire his character. Sorry, I’ve rambled a long time........I just feel safe here sharing the joy of Yuzu.
