I remember seeing the Golden carp!

 

Lol remember when a lady threw down her purse by accident? She got too excited!! Not sure what comp or year that was...

Same one! They were both Rostelecom '18. 

 

The carp: if you go back to the original tweet (below), and open up the thread and scroll down, you should see a picture of it. I tried finding video, but right now there's only shaky fancams of COR '18 that I can find.

Asuka says, "When I overcome the hardest time and am back to the competition (near future), I think I will be moved and might cry.", "Origin, the music Hanyu-kun has used, I want to use it and my goal is to dance in it to the fullest." :smiley-happy105:

Well I used autotranslate to scroll through the thread there, and quite a few of the Japanese replies are having fun mentioning the giant stuffed golden carp that was tossed to Yuzu at CoR...it was a pretty big carp, but I guess not big enough...:yuzushrug:

I think i remember hearing something about how the carp was given back to the people that threw it for some reason?? I really don't know if I'm remembering right or it could have been something weird NBC said....

Have people seen this speculation  about Beijing 2022....and what may happen as a result of worsening relations between USA and China? Very interesting......

From theGuardian.com:

  

Beijing Winter Games could be cancelled if Tokyo Games don't happen in 2021

If the postponed Tokyo Olympics do not go ahead next year due to Covid-19 then the 2022 Beijing Winter Games is also likely to be cancelled, according to long-time International Olympic Committee member Dick Pound. Reuters reports:

The Beijing Winter Olympics are scheduled for Feb. 4 to 20, 2022, just six months after the Tokyo Summer Games, which are now set to be held from July 23 to Aug. 8, 2021 after being pushed back a year.

Pound, a Canadian lawyer who has served as both an IOC vice-president and head of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), also speculated on a range of scenarios, including one where a threat to the Beijing Games is not so much a U.S. boycott, but one where China might consider barring the U.S. from taking part if the country cannot gain control over the virus.

:sipping:

The board explains about the Great East Japan Earthquake and how the Irene charity goods are being sold to raise funds for reconstruction efforts. Yuzu's writing says: "Everyone, please cooperate! Let's move forwards together!" :img_21:

 

They also have these :68271262: on display, what a treasures!!!

3rd Floor,

2-17-27 Mizonokuchi,

Takatsu-ku,

Kawasaki-shi,

Kanagawa 213-0001

 

They have been extremely  kind and gave us permission to post here the pictures and their address. So if by any chance the persons in charge of the shop see this post, we thank you all for your great efforts and work! From my side, also warm regards and best wishes from Switzerland!! :tumblr_inline_n18qr7hmfk1qid2nw:

I saw that a lot Yuzuru youtube videos had been deleted/removed especially one with lots of views.Is it the same for other skaters too?

Hard to say, I don't think that many videos get posted for other skaters to start with.

Ugh. So many unknowns and variables for this situation... without getting into the politics of it, let me just say that I wonder about what Beijing 2022 will look like. China also needs to be in control of the virus in order to host. 

 

Either way, if both Tokyo and Beijing get cancelled, it might be the end for the Olympics as we know it. I hope not.
