General Yuzuru Chat


Recommended Posts

So Ghislain is in Switzerland. Did..he lose a lot of weight? It took me a good 1-2 seconds to recognize him. Seems Yuzu is stressing him out by all those 4A attempts. Yuzu might be very responsible for Brian's hair loss and Ghislain's weight loss. Didn't the unfounded rumors say Ghislain was going to Japan for two months? I happily believed them  :crybaby:

btw, why DOI seems so far away though, I really miss his skating :th_tumbleweed:

You are so right! Back when he was competing together with Kanako Murakami, there's a video clip of them by the sideboards (I think in an ice show). A photographer wanted a picture of Yuzu together with Kanako, but Kana was busy chatting with someone else and had her back to them. To get her attention... yep, Yuzu yanked her ponytail. :winky:

Poor Kanako. :laughing: I can just imagine him going yoink yoink. Is that video still out there?

Yeah, it was really cute! The video was titled "Yuzuru Hanyu & Kanako Murakami: Cute Moments 2003-2014" and was uploaded to YouTube by crystal22, but now it's a "private video". Unfortunately, many You-Tubers have made their videos private so they won't get deleted. :sad4:

 

If you subscribe to crystal22's YouTube account, maybe you can see the private videos? I don't know. I don't have a YouTube account.

Aaaahhh, I see I see. I don't think anyone other than the person who posted the video can see it when it's privated. Thanks a lot though!

Update! I looked around to find footage of the ponytail yoink and I did find a picture of the moment in a YouTube video... though it looks like the video is kinda like a ship edit... uhhhh... 😅

 

Well anyways, here is the video if anyone wants to watch it. It has plenty of cute Yuzuru and Kanako moments, just ignore the context. 😅

It seems Sota Yamamoto and Taichiro Yamakuma talked at Life Online Talk about Yuzuru at SOI.  Hope it will be released on the magazine Life :tumblr_inline_n18qraikFP1qid2nw:

You all know Yuzuru, and many other skaters, use John Wilson blades, made from Sheffield Steel which is from the UK.  You might be interested in this news item relating to Brexit and the effects on the UK steel industry (I'm sorry, I know some people think sport and politics shouldn't mix, but it really is unavoidable in my view - politics affects everything including sport! Even down to the quality of Yuzuru's blades!! :8:

I have put it under a spoiler though for those who are not interested :))

Brexit (the decision of the UK to withdraw from the European Union) will likely mean the influx of cheaper and poorer quality steel imports into the UK, having a direct effect on the UK steel industry.

Thank you, Pammi, for posting the article. Everything is interlocked now-a-days, the Butterfly Effect really matters so politics does affect everything, down to the scoring and judges shenanigans to please the feds, or the shameless propaganda for pets trying to shadow the real values of a sport (like and including  FS). It is good for us to be reminded once in awhile.

Sorry if this has been already shared, Minami Itahashi, a diver, says she thinks Yuzuru's smooth movements are really amazing and there are a lot of things she was able to gain from watching another sport. She wants to be a diver who can perform both powerfully and smoothly to aim for the higher placement in the competition (brief summary). I am very proud that Yuzuru inspires not only skaters but also athletes in different sports.

I didn't know that June 21st is the day of snacks. 

Yuzuru (maybe in his teens) is holding a snack named ばかうけ (bakauke), long seller snack in Japan.

The name sounds a bit funny (meaning ridiculously good reception; being extremely well-received). 

My online dictionary is struggling to translate it :smiley-laughing021:
