I don't think he's affiliated with JSF, he works in the casino industry. Yuzu has his fair share of antis on Twitter. Best not to engage, in my opinion. Not worth the effort.

 

And if JSF is angry about Yuzu's entirely sensible and well-thought out decision, well... he's never been their favorite. What else is new?

 

Of course casino-man would not like Yuzu's message because Yuzu is essentially discouraging people from gathering, which is the best way to reduce the spread of the virus.

People not "gathering" also means empty casinos, so I'm sure casino-man would not be happy with that. If he doesn't care about people risking their finances in his casinos, do you think he will care about their health and well-being?

 

It was the same with the Las Vegas casinos when they wanted to stay open in April during the lock down and the idiot mayor supported them and wanted to keep the casinos opened. Luckily it wasn't her decision to make.

 

On the other hand, Yuzu clearly cares about his fans and he wants to minimize the risk not only for himself, but for everyone else too. It's pretty obvious who is the better man here.

I was around - but totally distracted by BTS...and Roman's fully to blame for that one. After he posted his DNA dance video, I started clicking on BTS vids, and, well, here I am missing skating streaming parties now...

 

Dang all these cute talented boys... what's a woman to do...

Oh, you are not alone with this, same happend to me.

Thanks to Roman I have fallen down a new and deep, deep rabbit hole called BTS.........

I was at the streaming party but after it, straight back to these amazing, and yes, really cute boys.

(and the reason why I had to catch up to 45 pages of this Yuzu chat.....yeah, I'm also a bit distracted by them)

Rabbit hole is a good description...doesn't help that they basically have their own TV channel...there is so much stuff! It's like the opposite of following Yuzu...rather than being a cactus, it's more like being a water lily...you're awash in a sea of great content.

 

I don't have time for another fandom, but I guess I have to make an exception for RM* & the boys...

 

//All right, back to Yuzu chat...

 

 

*My bias. What can I say, I like the smart ones best. :)

Just found this video – has it been previously posted?

 

Who will land the first Quad Axel (4.5R)? | Hanyu's Thesis and Determination | The Next Big Jump

 

 

Edit: Is there some significance to my post being the number “666” which is called “The Number of the Beast” in The New Testament and the subject of the post and video being The Quad Axel?

That we know of. Our little secret squirrel quite possibly has landed it and has just decided to keep it to himself. 

If not already landed then it must be even closer than before!  He finished his thesis analyzing his own 3A using AI In July and he plans to focus on skating in August, so he will surely be incorporating what he learned from his thesis!  Thus, his thesis serves dual purpose.  His galaxy brain :knc_yuzu1:

The news about Yuzu’s withdrawal from GP on Weibo has been viewed 110 million times with 11,000 comments.
 

 

 

Over 100 millions?? :tumblr_inline_mzx95p7TPv1r8msi5:

I know he is famous in China but... Who even needs humility with numbers like that???

(Petty me thinking about the ISU bragging about a few million *impressions*, with paid ads)

That casino guy is just a clown who desperate for attention. He has been using Yuzuru name for clicks in the past few days and he wont' stop any time soon because there's alot of people support him . If you spend 5 minutes to look closer, its mainly Shoma and Nathan fans, yeah, I called them out this time. More accounts for me to block ~

 

At the end of the day, Yuzuru is a better person than anyone who try to bash him and pretend to act humbly.

Wow I feel like I have a sixth sense! I haven't been active here for the past months but decided to check for any news and now this!!. As many of you have so eloquently put into words, I fully support Yuzu's decission even if that means we won't see him for months. He is really showing his maturity here and I couldn't be more proud :clap:. The world is really in a complicated situation so I hope you all are healthy and stay healthy.

When you don't know what a "quadruple axel" is and you Google it, a little paragraph comes up at the top that helpfully says "no figure skater to date has landed the quadruple Axel in competition." :embSwan: 

noooo way to ruin my hopes (LOL joking, that's probably how things went):68468287:

my addendum to the casino guy thing, under spoiler

Spoiler

it looks like current president of JSF has ties to the casino business himself (but even if he left, of course he would be in close contact with people in the business, as shown by casino guy's pic)

 

iirc former (unfamous)president Hashimoto, too, has important ties and interests in the casino business.

She was the one who recommeded Nagashima, she is in LDP too and, when she left JSF, she became "Minister of State for Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games" under (now former)premier Abe. So there's politics and money involved.

(It also looks like Nagashima switched to LDP in the same year he became JSF president:huh:)

 

so, even if casino guy isn't part of JSF, and even if he is expressing "just" a personal opinion, even if he has his own interests re:his business + desire to get attention, his ties with JSF president (and some common interests with former president) are...interesting, to say the least.

One doesn't need a big conspiracy to justify some petty nonsense being sprouted on social media  (there's too many antis and attention seekers already) but JSF president being buddies with this particular guy makes one raise eyebrows (especially when Nagashima himself has been tweeting/retweeting questionable stuff every now and then)

I made a video of all of Yuzus 4lo jumped in competition! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPbsgiMJCB0 His 4lo is one of my favourite jumps so I wanted to see how it developed throughout his career. I hope we can see it again soon whenever it's safe for competitions!

aww thank oyu for this! What a walk down memory lane... sometimes a traumatic one. Gosh the axis is scary sometimes, but I'm so happy Yuzuur has conquered it! Sad 4Lo wasn't borught to play in 4CC :/

 

@Hanmgse welcome back, take care and stay healthy&safe you too:10742289:

How does this affect the qualifications of nationals? I hope JSF will adapt to these unusual circumstances

Quote

The All Japan Championship, which also serves as the selection for the 21st World Championship, will last until the end of the year, but ice skating federation officials said he had not heard of Hanyu's participation.

 

 

 

Let's hope the pandemic is over soon and we see Yuzu skating again. :smiley-angelic001:
