  1. Edit (found it) Yuzuru's FS at WC 2019 BBC: https://streamable.com/9o9vz
  2. I think their reason is more reasonable is that Yuzu will retire (like Shizuka and Mao did) and they need new faces for Japan Skating. But the truth is we all know, megastars do not rain down every season. Even a huge sport like tennis only has ONE Federer, ONE Nadal, One Novak and they consider it a HUGE blessing. FS is a much smaller sport we cannot expect many megastars appear like mushrooms. I think the method JSF is approaching is not smart. The only way for them to develop a strong skating nation is to push all disciplines like the US, Russia, and Canada have been doing. They want to be considered a true powerhouse in the skating world, they need ice dance and pairs. Their unbalance support make them less powerful and less influential compared to the top 3 nations.
  3. First of all, if this were the usual tabloid post they would have done this - Do not post full name and said something like "a source from JSF said". - Add another controversial line saying "another reliable official from JSF said". So, while I do agree that there is a possibility the words were not 100% correct, I would say, the possibility of the reporter quoting everything the chairman said is higher. Another note, the words were even put in a dialect, which means the writer did not even bother to "edit" the words or standardize the statement. Please notice that there is a name and a position in there. If the reporter lied outrageously, the chairman could always make a clarification, which he did not. Second, the translation did not use the word "politics" for the skaters. And last but not least, as many comments have stated, there is nothing morally wrong in the article to the point it needed to be twisted from the original meaning. The whole thing is not something too controversial to the point the reporter had to "make up lies" to grab attention. It does not worth it. Does the Federation want to support many skaters all at once? Nothing wrong with that. Do they want to brag that they have done a lot for the sport? Fine. But the way they talked about it and the way they executed their ideas at WC make people angry.
  4. The link was shared in other posts in other threads. Twitter is messy like that. This was the main reason I used to hate twitter a while ago. It was difficult to keep track with posts and replies. Also, per my understanding, many sport newspapers in Japan are half-half. Sometimes they have ok news and sometimes not. There is almost no "absolutely trustworthy". As I have said, it's not just the wording, but "the thing you have said before WC" vs "the thing you have done for WC". Most people who replied said they understand JSF's need to continue the line, to push for many skaters etc. BUT... in the end what have they done? The whole thing actually focused more on ladies, and they ended up without any lady on the podium. Yes, unwanted issues happen, but they all combine. Also, the majority of that interview was posted in quotation mark, so it is not really correct to say all the words were twisted.
  5. Nah, I think they have their points about not focusing on one star and they have their reasons to be proud of their system etc but their wording is the most troublesome. Same meaning could be re-written differently and make it sound more reasonable. As a federation, they deserve to get some credit and it is fine but their words combine with all the things happen before, during, and after WC make the whole thing look worse. Like they want to have many megastars but what have they done for their skaters? They could easily take credits for themselves but with different wording, note that they have other ways to word it around and still make people see "Oh, JSF have worked so hard". Also, the JSF VP's posts which fueled fans' reaction, the organization issues. It's a whole mess when they combine everything together. Like "What you said before the WC" vs "What you have done at the WC". What sounds annoying the most is their attitude towards the whole thing. Also, the link to the source was posted on Twitter earlier in other several posts, you just did not follow it. Twitter has limited characters so they have to calculate every word they post on Twitter, hence the final post included the link in the screenshot.
  6. My friends brought more tickets than they needed. They were the lucky ones.
  7. I am going to WC. I drop here to ask if there will be a gathering for PH? Btw, long time no see, everyone. I hope you are doing well.
  8. A very great posts for new fans who want to study the basic turns and steps, this blog has all the examples for all the steps and the examples are very great http://illyria-and-her-pet.tumblr.com/post/182237416574/figure-skating-stepsturns
  9. Hello @katonice and @Yatagarasu do you mind telling me if you know anyone who saved technical handbooks of the last season (the season before this). Thank you.
  10. Hello, I have a friend asking for Kenji's room raw files. Anyone know how to get these? Thank you in advance.
  11. Hello this one says anything I wonder if anyone can summarize it? It is not his new interview right? Thank you. https://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20180920-00000123-dal-spo
  12. I remember someone said this when he changed his SP costume: “OH, finally Hanyu gets his body back.”
  13. And some folks on other forums dare say Yuzuru "skated on flat edge"... words of those who never skated. Also they even said Yuzuru "burrowed his blade on the ice". I am just saying, if any of you ever skates, surely you know those people are faking.
  14. Hello, I am asking if anyone know the video of this scene: Thanks in advance!
