Happy 2nd anniversary of Yuzu skating to the best free skate ever at the Olympics level and winning his second Olympic gold medal  :tumblr_inline_n18qr5lPWB1qid2nw:

This was a day where I learned for a fact that being in a complete state of euphoria allows you to endure things you would otherwise find torturous.  I remember heading toward the medals plaza from Gangneung Ice Arena and saying "What a glorious day!"  It wasn't that glorious, we were freezing our asses off! And it was a TREK to get from the arena to the plaza, but   @kiches, myself, and others were in full YOLO mode and just so darn happy that we did it with a smile.  I remember my fingers should have been freezing when I was trying to film the medal ceremony, but I was just too happy to feel it.  What a glorious day, indeed!!  I wish I could bottle it up and sell it!! "Natural High" come get it while it's hot! 

 

The 17th was a beautiful sunny and quite warm day in Gangneung with barely any clouds on the sky, it only started to get much colder when the sun went down and we headed to PyeongChang for the medal ceremony. I remember my fingers were freezing while we were waiting there but every second was worth it. <3  

I will never forget those moments and feelings when Yuzu stepped on the podium and got his gold medal, and after that the anthem was played for him. :cry:

Got my Music with Wings programme today 😃! Very pretty purple cover with gold writing/trim and a small gold feather on the back. Anyone else received theirs?

 

Mine will arrive in a week or so. I can't wait for it.

This is out of nowhere, but! I was listening to the interview with Brian Boitano on the Olympic Channel Podcast speaking about Yuzu and he really is rubbing me the wrong way! :judgmental:

 

...he's the losing Brian now... :knc_brian1:

...didn't he know that it's the long game that counts... :knc_brian2:

Orser was a 2-time Olympic silver medalist, but after 30 years, his student took back 2 OGMs, one by one. What a badass revenge from Orser, must be very satisfied his student did him justice in the end! :knc_brian1:

Plus Yuna's 2010 gold - he got 3 golds in the row :) And bonus (but not less important) Javi's bronze. Moreover: all those medals are for skaters who are from outside of well-established political forces in figure skating. Pure, undeniable victories over all demons.

The thing that irritated me was Boitanos disingenuous attitude towards 4A - he doesn’t know what Yuzuru Hanyus 3A looks like ...... reeeaaallly - so how is he qualified to comment on the likelihood of 4A being jumped if he hasn’t seen the top 3 performances from the last 10 years worth of OG and WC and GPF, most of which YH featured in ?  And he thinks 4A will become widespread in the near future , when most women and a lot of men can’t jump 3A consistently?   🤔🧐

sad that you can just say that and it's enough of an explanation

Yes! It was insane how much colder it got when you got to Pyeongchang vs. Gangneung. I remember we had to take the train to PC and then wait for the shuttles headed to medals plaza. That's where it was cooold. And then as the sun set it got even colder!!  And then traffic SUCKED trying to get us there but I remember not totally freaking out because if we were stuck in it, they were too. And the ceremony was delayed a touch because of the traffic I remember.

The fact that no one has ever landed even just an UR 4A, even only in practice, speaks VOLUMES about its difficulty. I'm quite confident Yuzu is the only one right now that has a possibility with it and if he can do it, that achievement can last as long as his 2 OGMs. Boitano is just bitter as an American, nothing a surprise here.

Boitano was never the sharpest tool in the shed but this sounds so dumb.
