    Skate Canada Annual Report’s in - and there were 3600 spectators at ACI, 23k in Kelowna, more than at Nationals - I wonder what on earth drew them in?

    I do think there's an outside chance that someone at the ISU may have started to wake up to who their biggest and most marketable star actually is. I like to imagine them watching the Simone Biles mania at the recent gymnastics world championships and going 'man, I wish we had one of those GOATs...hey, wait a second, we do!' :smiley-shocked032:

     

    I mean, once again the crowds tell the tale. SkAm wasn't even close to sold out despite being in a fun location like Vegas, while SCI was basically a packed house Yuzucon in Kelowna, BC. And I think we all know that if Yuzu was the headlining skater at SkAm rather than Nathan, that venue would have been packed too. Maybe some of the powers that be are beginning to clue in too, but that also might be far too optimistic, we'll just have to wait and see.

    This until now I want to know what was in his mind?

    Did he not want people analyzing him this early?

    Was he giving him the vibes that yeah go complacent people and I am just gonna shock you later?

    Or was he jus simply going, come on guess what I have for all of you today?:kitty:

    Yuzu explains it himself in this video (which is excellent by the way) at 11:00.  All I can say is - it was all part of his calculation.

    :gla:

    I have so many questions!

     

    What is this?!

    Where is this from?!

    GIVE ME THE SOUND!

    Is this his swag song?

    A diss song to all his haters?

    An origin song about the hard times he had when thrown out of the rink?

    Is Keiji his manager?

    Is Keiji plotting his murder?

    What happened to the cameraman? Did he survive?

    What is the duality of this man? Why is he so cringeworthy cute?

    Why do I even love him more now?

    So I don't know how many of you guys in here are in the US and have cable, but NBC offers the Olympics in 4K On Demand (though you need a 4k tv and 4k cable box) and it turns out that for the 4k broadcast they have completely different commentary AND different camera angles! A lot of times you feel like you were on the ice (if you have a really big tv, lol)! Charlie White was commentating and he is just so wonderful! I wish we could have him all the time. It's so clear how much he admires and respects Yuzu. He wouldn't shut up about him throughout the broadcast 0:)0:)0:).  And they posed the GOAT question and Charlie said "it's an easy argument to make because he's proven himself time and time again and this, when it matters most, he was able to do exactly what he needed to do when he needed to do it".   I'm trying to figure out how I can capture this before the On-Demand expires (I imagine the file will be massive), but if I can I hope to post!

    Does he design these costumes? Because if he does he DEFINITELY has a career in fashion!

    TBH I think Yuzu is more avant garde than the above.

    hi guys. this is off topic but i just really want to ask this to understand it more. please pardon my ignorance hehe. what is this 'pointing of the toe'? and the thing abt yuzu not pointing his toe? and how important is it? if someone can explain it to me, million thanks!! XD

     

    21 hours ago, WinForPooh said:

    huh what?

     

    I expect it would be very tough to point toes in skates. I've never heard of this? Pointing the toes is a way of extending your line gracefully in dance, and having graceful lines is part of artistic movement in figure skating, too, but I've never actually heard of anybody expecting skaters to point their toes while wearing those boots. And it's not like men have long spirals, blades are usually on the ice most of the time, so... I don't know?

     

    What skaters actually point their toes? 

     

    Or is this about the toe pick in toe jumps? I've never heard any criticism of Yuzu's toe pick position in jumps, he never uses the whole blade, and he only very rarely uses more than the toe pick.

     

    No idea what this is about.

    As much as I seem to know, pointing toe is something even Yuna had been criticized about  of NOT doing it, eventhough she had beautiful lines. David Wilson mentioned it in an interview with TSL quoting a talk with Yuna and pointing out that if she did not do it, he, David, would be punished, or something... By the way, the TSL constantly kept criticising Yuzuru for.

    You mean, this:

     

    But basically, it's that old and tiresome talk about how skating must be as balletic as possible.

    If I recall correctly, Sasha Cohen used to be famous for being able to do that. I personally can't tell. Also, how on earth are skaters expected to do that while on skating boots?

    ...

    If anyone can point to me where in ISU official document I can find this thing, I'd concur. Until then, :shrug:

    Yeah, turnout and pointed toes are different things but I guess they often correlate. For me the turnout is MUCH more important for it to look good (one of my pet peeves with Alina’s FS is how she often lost the turnout in her attitude (the ballet movement :P) which makes it ugly af), and not that I mind pointed toes, but I’ve never been bothered by Yuzu’s supposed lack.

    You can "point your toe" in skating. It feels like you're pointing your toe but the effect is more...turning out your foot...with your toe facing slightly more away from you.

     

    For example, Sasha, who is very famous for always pointing her toes, even when she jumps:

    SashaCohen.jpg

     

    And Yuna is famous for *not* pointing her toes, but I love Yuna the most and completely didn't mind, so it's a matter of personal taste.

     

    yuna.jpg

     

    better example that won't embed

     

     

    As for Yuzu, well, I think it's nitpicky because he (1) doesn't do spirals, and (2) men don't usually point their toes anyway. Not that i've even really noticed.

     

    Re: Toe point. Sasha was my Yuzu equivalent at the time so I cared about toe point very much and still do depending on your skating style. And yes, she did it in her jumps (that's commentary from Dick Button btw). That said, with Yuzu I don't care or even notice all that much. I typically don't look for it in guys.  He is very polished in other ways. But for moves like spirals it wasn't just about the toe point, but also the alignment, which Sasha was also amazing at. Skaters like Karen Chen have good extension, but her alignment is not good so I often find myself cringing a bit if it's a straight on angle of it (Sasha's for comparison is straight through with no break at the hip).  Even Lipnitskaya could do the the spirals with great flexibility and alignment, but I'd look at the lack of toe point and scrunch my nose. Even Wakaba, I like her a lot, but I'd be perfectly okay if she never did a fan spiral again. So needless to say Yuna's club foot never did it for me, though I was never much of a fan in general. She just wasn't my skater and that's okay.  So for me, as long as Yuzu isn't doing what Sasha's done to supreme excellence, I'm not bothered, especially because in general he has great line and performs moves more flattering for him.  But on some level I do understand being nitpicky about those things. It's hard to unsee them when you have a set standard. Sasha's kind of ruined me for that. If your layback isn't completely parallel to the ice with the back and leg, I'm gonna notice.  If you grab your blade for a front catch this way vs. this neater this way, I'm gonna notice (that was Sasha both times but she improved on it to make it look better).  But I digress.  

     

    At the same time Yuzu has ruined me for a lot of things, especially jumps. Even TSL called his jumps "stunningly beautiful". I'm a lot less tolerant of telegraphing, less than pretty air positions, and less than stellar runouts. It's not a way to live, folks. My faves keep ruining me with their high standards.:headdesk2::headdesk2: :headdesk2:

     

     

    PS: I just listened to a little more of Dick's commentary on Sasha's short and he talks about how he's getting pelted with stuffed dolls. He hasn't a clue

    of what that would grow to mean :pouty:
