    I did notice that Yuzu gets around the ice at a nice clip, even in competition. And he has great ice coverage, though maybe I'm biased because he hit that gorgeous 4 Loop and 4 sal/3 toe so close to me so he gave me some memorable moments on my end/corner. He also maintains speed very well. I didn't notice him running out of gas at the end. You can tell in person quite easily when you're seeing them back to back to back...

    To be quite honest, when I saw him do it even with a fall in the free I was like O_O. The attempt itself is impressive to see. I totally agree.

    True and it makes total sense! I just need to go over these things so my mind is prepared for more contextual situations.

    Thank you. Since it didn't end like a question (with a ka or ne or something), I was thinking it was an exclamation. This language remains impossible

    I'm a big sister to everyone in that regard , but Javi I think is the most swoon-worthy. I'm closer to Miki's age so he seems to not mind an older woman. In general though Daisuke for me is the MOST swoon-worthy, and we're less than a year apart in age, I'm taller than him though. But for the rest of you I think Nate, Shoma, and Yuzu are pretty cute. Patrick and Boyang, it depends. Yuzu and Javi are the only one (barely) taller than me. For NON men's singles skaters...Alex Shib really does it for me, AND he's tall, AND he's really nice. I did behave myself around him though . My knowledgeable Japanese speaking friends, please help. In the first video here (I can't hear it very well), the caption says "上手じゃない" but everybody is clapping. Doesn't 上手じゃない mean "NOT really good?"

    Well, at 4CC Nate got better GOE on his 4 lutz combo than Boyang did. After seeing them both do them in front of me in the same spot in Helsinki practice, the quality between them is like night and day. You got "good" (Nate) and then "WOW" (Boyang) and yet the points didn't properly reflect that at all. So I still think judges will do what they want. Yuzu has a better 4 loop than Shoma (not to mention Yuzu makes it hella harder by spread eagle sandwiching it) but the scores haven't always reflected that. So I would not bank on anything in that regard.

    My kryptonite is adorable Yuzu with adorable kids. It's just too much.

    There's one to the right that's cut off as well.

    Guys, please refrain from discussing GS. Discussion about other forums and their members is off topic. You are free to PM about it though.
  11. So is the team medal ceremony on site then? Because it doesn't have a much later time on there.

    And we also definitively know he reads manga (probably watches anime). We knew he liked games but that's not always the same thing. Yuzu would be a fantastic coach.

    I guess because he typically gets more downtime in Toronto than in Japan. Though with Canada being so in the know about skating you'd think he'd be recognized more. I bet he had proper security when he got to Japan Even my Japanese teacher here in DC knows who he is and she was super excited when I brought him up in class.

    It would be personal attacks on a skater or member. Post your response and I'll let you know if it has to be edited.

    We're still discussing, just no bashing of skaters or members. This should not be the place to villainize anybody.
