Wow he even mentioned Kanysheva? It means he watched JGP too? Kanysheva hasn't competed this ss that's the only way he can know:

 

As I mentioned in another thread, there's no way Yuzu doesn't follow skating closer than 99% of us. I mean this is entertainment for us (although it feels so all consuming this weekend it doesn't just feel like entertainment!), whereas figure skating is Yuzu's life's work. He probably watches all the JGPs, GPs, CSs, etc. and has his own opinions on judging, competitors, etc. He just doesn't make it public (except he evidently though the 4T calls at ACI were bs, just like the rest of us!).

 

edit: now that I think about it, though, I'm dying to know his opinions.

So I didn't intend to post at all (because I feel ashamed that I basically am now a part time swanyu who can only catch comps because LIFE), but someone tell me if NBC is really at it again or whether I'm just being sensitive? 

 

"Hanyu prevailed over a field lacking any of the other top-10 skaters from last season" (that's like normally the case for the early part of the GP though??)

"The two-time Olympic champion, with four quadruple jumps in his free skate en route to 322.59 total points, only upped anticipation for showdowns with American Nathan Chen to come later this season." (Because clearly they had to pull the attention back where it belongs)

"Meanwhile, the American Chen ascended to win the last two world titles, outscoring Hanyu in their last three head-to-head programs dating to the 2018 Olympic free skate" 

 

Nothing they wrote is false, but its the subtle spin on the language choices? Or maybe this is all perfectly reasonable and I'm just being sensitive but for some reason in reacting strongly to this article...

Oh lord 🙄. NBC always goes for sensationalist articles. Rivalry? What rivalry? They put a spin on it with word choice to make it out for a sort of show down between them and making sure to note Chen's scores-really NBC? This stuff gets me so annoyed.

 

Im a US fan, but when I read stuff like that-it just makes me root harder for Yuzuru...I dont wish Nathan ill. I like him, but by comparison I dont think he is as well rounded as Yuzuru. Not yet. He's working at it though. I just really dont like these imagined or forced rivalries.

 

Nathan and Yuzuru have both said they respect each other. Nathan has mentioned Yuzuru ignites a fire in him-pushes him. All skaters at this level are competitive, but that doesnt mean they're all rivals.

 

Best thing to do is ignore it...so really, I should take my own advice 😅😂

Wait...I thought Russian girls are using Yuzu's quad vids as their reference so if Yuzu is referencing these girls then this is called...circular reference!!

Yuzuru probably watches the whole junior and senior grand prix circuit by now.

I bet he knows all the top skaters off by heart (both boys and girls).

 

I love how he mentioned Kostornaia because she is the closest to him in terms of skating skills, artistry, musicality, expressiveness, charisma and beauty on ice.

They both have star quality. 

I also loved how he mentioned Valieva Because she is a major fan of him (go on her instagram and you will see lol).

I'm glad he is looking forward to seeing them in real life lol. I'm looking forward to cute gala pics during GPF

Aww that's adorable. Valieva has good artistry for her level of development (and let's be honest, it can be hard to seem artistic with Daniil programs, even if you are), so the influence does show. She's clearly trying to be a balanced skater. It's awesome the senpai noticed these girls hahahaha

 

In Yuzu-Nathan rivalry news, when was the last time they faced each other when Yuzu was healthy? 

 

spoiler: me complaining about dumb things I've seen people say

Spoiler

Saw some people trying to downplay Yuzu's two Oly wins in one of those dumb “who's better, Yuzu or Nathan” threads by talking about the context in which they were won, and it's like, uh, first of all, the context of Yuzu's second win was in the best men's field ever, while he was injured, and just because Nathan head-cased in the short doesn't somehow make Yuzu's win lesser (also, he had to prevail against Shoma, Javi, Boyang, etc. all of whom, as far as we know, were healthy and well prepared). You have to bring the mental game as well as the physical one and Nathan didn't, while Yuzu did and then some. Meanwhile, the context of Nathan's two World Championships was 1. depleted field, with rivals absent, injured, or undertrained where literally everyone but him melted down 2. main rivals injured (Shoma was in a pretty bad state too, wasn't he?) So if you're going to bring up context of wins, well...

LOL yeah, but. Whatever if they want to live in their delusion in their alternate dimension. If they think about it that way, then we can go back to World 2015 and World 2016 in which in both competition, Yuzuru is in bad health and still win silver so we can argue that if he is fit, he will win. Or he might have been 4 times World Champion.

So, Yuzu does not mention Alysia Liu among the teen girls quadster?
