shit, there are rinks here open (but far, most of the ones i've gone to have closed). but maybe it's a good idea still to not skate at all...


Yeah, I’m not, even though my rink is open. Which sucks, because I’m off work for a week (just because Worlds cancels doesn’t mean my PTO cancelled) unless the situation deteriorates to the point where I have to come back early, and I wish I could spend some of that time skating.

Just remember there are far more important things than skating right now. And skaters have longer breaks even for planned vacations sometimes, it's March, people... of course I'm very doubtful that will last only three weeks, but hopefully things will get better soon...

Here also almost all public spaces and schools are closed, and we for now have "only" 116 cases confirmed... It's recommended to work from home... (too bad I can't for now, sigh)

It’s just a tough time for everyone around the world 💔💔 so much uncertainty

The virus may take many many things away from us but please don’t let it take away hope and strength!! Press on everyone :’)

 

Also maybe no one is in the mood for this now but I found a translation for Samarin’s comment on Yuzu’s 4A

I didn’t want to bring that Samarin interview. Really, he’s the last skater on earth who should dare to complain about programs being just jumps.

I read the 'one time phenomenon' comment as he thought Yuzu was the only one capable of doing it at the moment. 😁

I hope so too. He could also mean Yuzuru Hanyu may land Nessie once or, more likely a few times, then go back to a "more efficient" program, point-wise.

Particularly, if he tries a quad-quad (or a quad-euler-quad, or a quad-loop-quad) or even a quint (not next season I suppose). There too, he is the only one who can do so "now".

And we will still have the most beautiful of triple axels, even more delayed and with always wonderful, incredibly difficult entries (can you imagine, a delayed triple axel???)

Last I checked Miyagi has 1 case, maybe he can go back for ice time... but flying at this time is certainly very risky

Roman just posted a video about the same thing. His rink was closed as of yesterday and they were scrambling to find ice time at TCC or Granite, but now that's out too.

 

Good thing it's fairly early in the season, but who knows how long this will actually last for? Skaters who still have access to ice right now are definitely going to have an advantage come September. Provided they can keep that ice access...I have a feeling that sooner or later the whole world will be going through the same thing. For example, I just got a message from my uncle in Spain. They're now in lockdown. His girlfriend is an ER doctor, and he's over 65 with a heart problem. Time for anxiety :yuck:

Sorry for your uncle, I hope he will pass it well, as well as his girlfriend. Heart problems seem to be the worse, for this coronavirus, worse even than respiratory conditions.

 

As to Yuzuru Hanyu, I was trying to see positive things, I thought that he probably had no proper hanami for years, that sakura had started blooming yesterday in Tokyo (bur there is snow) and that they would start blooming from 24th in Sendai. I checked there was no restriction for him to enter Japan (or back to Canada later, but of course there is no warranty for then). Of course he would certainly impose himself severe precautions, but he would certainly be able to go out (in lesser crowded places) and enjoy flowers and fresh air.

And even, as rinks are still open for members, and I have little doubt he is still a member of Sendai's, he may be able to do some basic training there (though there seem to be no off-ice equipment).

 

I think all aircraft are disinfected between each flight, and there may be very few passengers on each flight, lessening the risks.

Med updated:

 

 

I wonder if she will come back to Russia, have two weeks quarantine (at home?), then try to find ice time in a Russian rink, or rather stay in Canada.

If Canadian rinks are really to reopen in three weeks, I don't know if it would be good. But is it unlikely that they stay shut longer?

Russian skating rinks are as likely to be closed shortly.

All rinks definitely should be temporarily closed, both for public and members. The next few weeks could be crucial and if not necessary, why keep it open...

For now in Russia there are still some ice shows planned even in March, but looking at what is happening, it's unlikely they will proceed.

Sambo 70 seems to be off on holiday for two weeks because of Covid 19 already, don’t know whether that ban extends to Khrustalny 

the thing is, it’s here too. So what’s the point of travelling to find oneself in a similar situation. 
the reports from all over the world sound just eerie. Total sense of unreality, except that I am starting to have that itch in my throat myself.

Sometimes staying at home does miracles to you your creativity. This happened to me yesterday. Finally I created a new video again!

 

I felt like an emotional mess during the whole editing and sobbed over the keyboard from start to finish. I put some of the most touching moments of Yuzu's career since Pyeongchang in one clip. It's not a full recap really, since many things are missing. It's more like a mix of single fragments that came to my mind.

 

With the long drought ahead of us it might be the best occasion to share it. It's my little present to the Planet. I hope, it makes you happy, too  :tumblr_inline_ncmifaymmi1rpglid:

 

 

PS: You can also take it as a tribute video to the greatest lovestory on ice: Yuzu and Ice-chan :tumblr_inline_mqt4grU8ua1qz4rgp:

 

 

 

Henni this is great,i especially love the contrast between the stenght in Masquerade and the softness of Notte Stellata ...thank you for sharing!

 

 

and for TCC closing,I guess it's the best thing for everyone safety and as much as I'm sure it is bad for every skaters ,they understand for sure the situation.

And about travelling(be it Evgenia going back to Russia or Yuzuru to Japan,the last thing I'd do now would be to lock myself for hours inside a plane with this nasty virus so i hope they are both at home in Toronto and safe....them and everyone of course.)

 

So I went grocery shopping today by feet just to waste some time and it's so unreal , the roads are so empy,you don't even need to check when you cross.
