I just had to think of the infamous TCC jump codes again...

 

4T+3A+SEQ = "Toe-Axel" (sigh, I'm still so grrrrrrrrrr about this, Brian...)

4F+3A+SEQ = "Flip-Axel"

 

What would they call a 4A+3A+SEQ then?

... "Axel-Axel" ?

... or "Double-Axel" ?

... or " THE Axel sequence" ?

I bet that they have a code for it already... Just like excited parents suggest names for their expected child :embSwan:

Remember how Yuzu had AAA engraved on his music player - I think it was? - to symbolize 3A? Maybe he'll aim for Axel-Axel-Axel... as in 4A+3A+3A+SEQ... in ice shows, that is lol Ah, imagine if the ISU would make an exception for axels, where sequences including axels get full points like regular combinations, including 3 jump ones. Yuzu would pummel so many quad-3A-3As he'd leave everyone else way behind :nod2:

4A+3A+SEQ shall be called "GOAT Axel". :goat:

 

Oh yes. That would be my no. 1 suggestion, too. However, I fear that Team Cricket will continue the list of totally underwhelming jump names... :13877886:

AAA = 4A+3A+3A+SEQ :2thumbsup:

It could also refer to the J-Pop band AAA (also called 'Triple A' for 'Attack All Around'). Does anybody know, if Yuzu likes their music?

 

 

I don't think that the ISU would ever make a rule change in favor of Yuzuru Hanyu. The -20% punishment of sequences and ridiculously low BV of the 4A just shows their deep love for Axels... :emoticonaci2019_2:

Isn't it 5A-4A-3A combo?

 

Edit. Sequence. The Ultimate Axel Seq

Skate Canada schedule is already up! getting close, my goodness...

 

Oh well, it's not ungodly hours but early in the morning for me...getting up 5:30am on Sat morning and 6:30 on Sun morning is not the end of the world... :13877886: and gala is at 2:00am Monday early in the morning. It's a good job I'm taking Monday off as I'm not going to miss Yuzu's EX program reveal (though I've got a feeling he may be keeping HYK)

Actually, I was in a Javi mood yesterday and I watched Javi's Olympic FS and then I watched both of Yuzu's Olympic programs and what struck me the most as the difference between them was that Javi was visibly nervous during his FS. He was nervous and a bit unsure of himself, I think, and it showed. On the other hand, Yuzu was visibly nervous before the programs - though not as badly as he's been in other competitions - but once the program started there was no hesitation whatsoever and he was oozing confidence, even after the two mistakes in the free. Watching Javi, then Yuzu, this was really obvious to me. I also watched the end of Shoma's and I loved how he was smiling, he was just smiling throughout the end of his program. I'm sure he regretted the fall, but overall, he seemed relieved that this whole thing was over. (Maybe subconsciously even a little relieved that he hadn't won... I like Shoma, but I'm not sure he could deal so well with all the pressures and obligations of being an Olympic Champion. Even being silver medalist seemed a bit overwhelming for him, as far as the off-rink stuff goes.) I think if Javi had been less nervous and more confident, he wouldn't have popped the sal and maybe would have overall beaten Shoma. But it was still a medal and so much better an experience overall than Sochi.

 

(Btw, Javi was still in Canada yesterday, doing some coaching with Javi Raya, but he should be off to Japan soon... I was still hoping we might get a Cricket Club brothers picture before he left...:dontdothistome:)

This makes me think of what Tessa Virtue (the mindset of a champion) said " practice like you have never won, perform like you have never lost",  such a simple phrase but immensely profound.

@Henni147 didn't you mean to say: "I don't think that the ISU would ever make a rule change in favor of Yuzuru Hanyu. The 20% punishment of sequences and ridiculously low BV of the 4A just shows their deep love for Axels Yuzuru Hanyu...

I believe you would call that a Seven Axel. Or perhaps an act of God ( act of G.O.A.T.?). LOL.

I've thought all along that Shoma is essentially a shy person, a person who sheds his shyness only while he's on the ice skating.  I remember all those times that Yuzu has prodded him (sometimes even physically), leading the way on how to pose for pics on the podium and other places, cajoling him in press conferences and all that, generally playing big brother who knows the ropes.  I have a strong feeling that Shoma is ambivalent about his coming matchup against Yuzu at the Japanese nationals, assuming Yuzu doesn't injure himself yet again.  Shoma has been the National Champion for three years straight now, all because Yuzu wasn't there.  The first time the flu derailed him, the next two were the seasons with injuries.  Believe me, if Yuzu is skating against Shoma in Japanese nationals this year it will be one of the most watched programs in Japanese sports history.

Oh God, I thought the pink pajamas was the worst. :surprised:

 

I'm convinced that this, as well as that pink monstrosity, are artificial CGI images.

When Lotte asked Yuzu for a photoshoot for a new campaign, Yuzu was probably like, "Nope, busy jumping quints and such. I'm sure you'll come up with something".

And then Lotte just hired some interns at a graphic design agency to come up with some cheap CGI... :disdain:

We just gotta embrace all facets of the Hanyu. :D 

Honestly, this is some weird Disney combo of Prince Charming and Alladin. Put Ken in there too. 

I wish they would do a commercial with sweaty Yuzu instead.

I was watching this video and realized I have actually not heard the BBC commentary before. It warms my heart to hear them call his win just from this performance despite the mistakes. I do occasionally wonder if they would have given it to Javi or Shoma if they had clean skates. But my consensus with myself is no :D

 

Thanks! I just realised I hadn't heard the BBC commentary either.

 

The more I watch this footage though, the more apparent it is to me that he is pretty strung out on those painkillers. I have no idea how he managed to get his brain together to skate. I first thought so watching his reaction when he realised he won again after Shoma's skate (or maybe it was Javi's?) - he seemed so overwhelmed. He also just doesn't look so well as he takes his starting position- kind of clammy or pale or something. He looks how I feel when I'm in pain and trying to get through something. He truly is something else. Being an Olympic gold medalist is already amazing - doing it while you're less prepared than you'd like, in pain in the most crucial place for your sport, and drugged up on painkillers is an extraordinary feat.
