The map of the 2020 Olympic torch relay was released. The torch will land in Miyagi prefecture in March and pass through Sendai on March 21 (during Worlds) for a special display as the "Flame of Recovery", then it will come through again on June 22 during the relay itself. Let's hope they recruit some Olympians from Sendai to carry the torch for part of the relay...

(Sorry, I know this is tangentially Yuzu-related at best, I just don't know where else to put it!)

The Olympic committees, both international and Japanese, are probably already thinking up how to get Yuzu in as much as possible...

Obvious answer here is to have Yuzu light the cauldron. Interestingly, that would make two figure skaters in a row who’ve done so (Yuna lit the cauldron at Pyeongchang).

I dont think a Winter Olympic athlete has lighted the cauldron for Summer Olympics before. Most likely they'll get Yuzu to light up the winter Olympics one after he retires

Though I'm not sure he'd agree to do it - I'm sure I read that when they wanted him to carry the flag at the closing ceremony (can't recall if it was Sochi or PC) he demurred saying he just wanted to enjoy the march past with the others as one competitor among all of Japan's.  And it being the summer Olympics, he might think it would be taking spotlight off the summer Olympians (though I suspect most of them would be thrilled to see him there )

Since Nomura Mansai is choreographing the Olympics Opening Ceremonies - with the expectation that he will integrate Japanese arts and theatre into the programme -  I am hoping that he would include Hanyu-kun in one of the performances.

Sorry, guys.  My previous post was not accurate.

Originally, Yuzuru was planning to perform Masquerade on the second day, but the news on his practicing Masquerade was aired before the show, and fans expectations for the POTO program have heightened so much, so he changed the programs as he wanted to respond to expectations, according to this article (if you don't mind this article is from Josei-Seven :tumblr_inline_ncmifdw7151rpglid: )

This online article has ended halfway, but I read the above content in the actual magazine.

I should have noticed because he had actually got the costume ready :64341262:

Maybe my brain has scorched by having seen his programs, and not working properly.

 

  

 

The rest of the article was released.  FYR.

There's always a first time for everything. I think Yuzu is considered to be Japan's most popular and most accomplished athlete and Olympic Champion. On top of this, Yuzu is known for his being a role model, his great character, his contribution to charity etc. This is why he was given the prestigious People's Honor Award. He's definitely one of the favorites to light the cauldron at Tokyo 2020.

 

Besides, Sapporo already withdrew its candidature for Winter Olympics 2026. So, in the foreseeable future, Tokyo 2020 would be the only opportunity for a Japanese athlete to light the Olympic fire.
