  1. You don’t have to print immediately as Danibellerika mentioned, but I’d recommend trying to at least print the test page now in case you run into trouble later down the road and need to contact customer support.

    Found Yuzu mentioned as the first person to land a quadruple loop in the Guinness World Records 2018 book while I was out shopping today. No nice photo of him this time, but I think we can expect to see him mentioned again in next year's edition with his Helsinki free skate and SP from ACI. If he does something special at the Olympics I think it'll end up in the next edition as the cut-off date for these edits seems to be January.

    Lol yes before news of the quad combo in the second half I thought it would be a lutz combo in the first half, maybe with 4Lo as the solo first jump. Even I think lutz combo in the second half is a bit much (for now). Do we have any references for Yuzu and transitions into a 3Lz (in case it’s not a spread eagle)?

    I’m not surprised either. I was honestly expecting the lutz in the SP at the start of the season. Although I wasn’t sure if he’d do it as a combo or solo. I wished we could’ve seen him do it in the SP at NHK Curiouser and curiouser.
  5. It’s at Gangneung Ice Arena (I believe #10 on the diagram in the link).
  6. That diagram is actually available in the English version. It basically says from the station and park and rides that you’ll need to take a shuttle bus (you can get on if you have an event ticket) to Gangneung Olympic Park. Here’s a map someone created with Gooe Earth: https://architectureofthegames.net/2018-pyeongchang/pyeongchang-2018-map-gangneung-olympic-park/

    Omg, I’m cracking up at this!
  8. I never got the sense that she was planning to skate in the gala, and from the sound of it she doesn’t seem to want to either.

    Yes, the answer is Javi never topped it. Phil obviously got his wires a bit crossed when talking about 2015 GPF vs 2015 NHK. I left a comment about it in the article. It's mostly an opinion piece by Phil, and it's not an opinion I share with him.
  10. The 1-2 wheelchair seats have popped up now and again on fan-to-fan sale. Not sure if the site is programmed to group wheelchair with their guardian tickets when they go up on sale but perhaps they bought they first tickets they could find and only realized later they wouldn’t be able to use them.

    So many different topics! I think he’s lost a lot of the “baby fat” in his face since 2014, his face has more definition now and is more angular - especially when he’s in shape and top condition. When he’s in shape it’s like his jawline could cut something, it’s so sharp. On his English, I agree with whoever said the issues with it are likely because he is so well spoken in Japanese. Normally his answers are quite eloquent and witty in Japanese and clearly his level of English mastery isn’t anywhere near his level so he has to try and find a match to what he does know in English. The end result can be fragmented but I think his English comprehension is decent. When he’s tired or overly excited I think he struggles more, and of course the only time we usually hear his English is during press cons and in the Kiss and Cry when he’s probably exhausted. I’m not too worried about the recent interview video, he looks as you’d expect him to look. Frustrated and a bit resigned to the situation at hand, but of course this situation is still quite fresh so the emotions he has are probably right at the surface. He’ll be fine. Back on the fever, maybe he developed it after he landed in Osaka. Those can creep up on you, and I don’t think you can get a fever just from tiredness. From what I understand a fever is a result of your body raising its internal temperature in order to kill an infectious agent (virus or bacteria). Virus and bacteria usually don’t do well in high temperature. Of course the offset of a fever is usually body ache and tiredness (if the temperature is too high then it can be dangerous for the person) which I’m sure he was still feeling residual effects of when he went to practice even if the fever was gone. Whatever caused it the 10 days of rest will likely be enough time for that to pass as well.

    Wow, so fast. I had a hunch he'd head back after this weekend as that was likely the original plan. Somehow this image is also really funny and something I can totally imagine.

    About using his mouth and teeth to remove his jacket and gloves... As fun as it is to see him do this, I can't help but think this puts him in danger of putting germs in his mouth . Especially the gloves if he's wearing them to touch other things. Sorry, this is the germaphobe in me talking, but seeing as he had a fever earlier and the flu last year, I'd be extra diligent about hand washing and touching my mouth, ears, eyes, etc with my hands after touching things others may have touched - and with being fervent in washing my hands.
  14. @asiacheetah I think maybe the recent release of tickets for skating may be only for Korean residents, I had the same issue earlier. I was definitely able to add tickets to other events prior to this new wave of tickets being added in, so they must’ve changed it. The fan-to-fan section works for any country though.

    Thank you @gladi for organizing, I will send my message later via email. Just a thought, but maybe we can get this banner printed as a blanket or quilt (similar to photo blankets you can purchase through Shutterfly). Somehow the idea of our words of support being able to be physically wrapped around him as a warm blanket seems comforting. I’d be willing to chip in.
