A bit off-topic maybe, but I had such a great thing happen to me at work today. 

 

So, first of: I work as a bookseller in a pretty large bookshop, and it’s not unusual for us to sometimes receive free gifts from the publishing houses we order from.

 

Today, I had just finished my lunch break (which I spent bothering my colleagues by gasping over the ladies event) when one of our buyers came up to me. I barely know her, so I was really surprised when she said “You like figure skating, right?”

 

She didn’t have the tone of voice that would suggest that she had just discovered a shared interest, but I said yes, wondering where this was going. 

 

I definitely didn’t expect her to say: “That’s great! We got this figure skating magazine in an order from Japan, and I don’t know what to do with it. Maybe you want it?” 

 

Of course I agreed to take it, though as she went and fetched it I thought that it would probably be pretty wasted on me, seeing as how the only words I know in Japanese are yonkaiten and kuyashii. 

 

And then she came back, and with her she had a magazine with a picture of Yuzu on the cover, posing with his Olympic gold medal. It turned out the magazine was a Pyeonchang Olympics memorial special, which basically means that it’s over 80 pages entirely filled with big beautiful pictures of Yuzu from the Olympics, as well as a few pages each for Shoma and Javi. 

 

I have never even contemplating buying anything figure skating-related from Japan because of the shipping costs, and this was just so unexpected and brightened up my whole day. It sounds really smug retelling it, but it made me so happy. I also showed the magazine to one of my favourite co-workers (she covered for me today while I secretly watched the last few free skates) and she thinks Yuzu is “incredibly handsome”. 

 

I just really, really like my job.

That is so cool! What a coincidence! She overhearded your interest in FS and she had the FS magazine that she didn’t know what to do with it!! 

He’s indeed very handsome isn't he!

let’s  all pray for Origin, sending positive vibes and love to Yuzu!!

I dreamt of Jackie Wong tweeting 3X WORLD CHAMPION YUZURU HANYU

 

Is this a good omen?

You know what's weird? I had a dream he won Worlds last month, and I've never dreamed about skaters or competitions before..

and then I saw a suggested news article on my phone about it being the aniversary of his Olympic win and I was like Whaaaaaaatt is thiisss sorcery, I didn't even pay attention or realise it was coming up... it's just like energy senses or something.

Hopefully we can tell the future, lol.

The only thing I wish for Yuzu now is that he skate "Origin" clean in a manner that he will be proud of and in the way he envisioned it to be in his image training.

 

The only thing he can control is the way he performs this program. The judges and the performances of the other skaters are out of his hands.

 

Please God let Yuzu exceed his free program achievement at the 2017 Helsinki Worlds by skating a flawless "Origin" at the 2019 Saitama Worlds. Let him have no regrets.

I dont know if I'm back in time for Yuzuru's group, but once again, I hope the best for him and he can skate a LP that he dream of. After all I'm grateful that he fighted all his way back to be here, to give us chance to see him and his beautiful skating.

 

I think about him keep trying 4lo again and realize it took a huge mental strength to do a jump that make you injuried. He came from landing it once out of 50 attempts a few weeks ago to get to this stage.  I pray that his hard word would pay off. Good luck Yuzuru.

That's a great story, thanks for sharing it! I'm happy for you :D

He won silver with a gold-worthy performance, he couldn't do much more. It wasn't like in Boston or Shanghai. That's why this is the most beautiful silver in my eyes, the rest of the world saw it. It's kind of like Yuna Kim's silver in Sochi. It underlines his status as the GOAT even more. Just amazing!

Hope he won't retire and that kuyashii will continue to burn and he tries it again next year  :multibow:

Painkillers - check

Muscle loss - check

Injury is worse than Olympics - check

Oh Yuzu-kun, you're so frustrating :tumblr_inline_n18qr8XewT1qid2nw:

 

4A... and 4F and 4Lz? ARE YOU NUTS? :tumblr_inline_mqt4gqDerH1qz4rgp:

 

Why... don't you take a season off or something to rest that damn ankle of yours?!?!?!

 

Why did I become your fan?! You're going to be the death of us, young man!

I mean no disrespect to Nathan. He did skate superbly today but i have a feeling in my gut, that judges are overscoring Nathan to help create a big rivalry between Nathan and Yuzuru for the next 4 years.  It has always been said that Yuzuru is unbeatable when he skates clean, but like Yuzu said today, if he had skated clean on both programs, he wouldn't have beat Nathan this year. But yet if you watch both programs for both skaters, Yuzu's are on another level to Nathan.  I hope the judges going forward do their job and judge the skating, instead of creating drama for the ISU to cash in on!!

On the whole I'm very happy for Yuzu today (despite him not winning and being confirmed he's still on painkillers), but still, this is the happiest world silver medal I've known. His inner fighting spirit never ceases to amaze me, and I still feel that everything coming after Pyeonchang is a bonus. Actually, I am overjoyed he's being a two-time Olympic and World champion who is still posing a major threat to all these new kids who have two healthy ankles. I wish him to be healed enough to get rid of the painkillers and then fulfill his dream of doing a 4A on the big stage. Actually, him winning an ultimate world championship with this kind of jump would be the best possible outcome to end his career. I don't want to see him go as far as Beijing because I don't want him to get injured yet again. But whatever will be his choices, I'll support him 100%. Now go rest Yuzu, you so deserve it! And thank u again :tumblr_inline_nhkezsTB3v1qid2nw:

I'm pretty sure what he meant by muscle loss is just that he lost muscle mass when he was resting and had to build it back up again. That happens to any athlete who stops/reduces training.
