From S-Park.

The first part is older news about falling to the bottom and finding the way back to light by skating to HYK, which reignited his love of skating. 
 

New part: Yuzu says Uchimura Kohei inspired him recently. At age 31 when his physical capacity is obviously declining, Uchimura decided to focus on the single event of high bar for the Olympics.  In his most recent competition late 2020, he succeeded in performing the H-Level hand release - the most difficult move on this device. After watching this, Yuzu realized he is still quite young and he still has a lot to offer.  He has 4A on his mind.  He is beginning to sound like he will continue competing after Beijing (my speculation). Fly Yuzu!

 

Edit: many Japanese tweets are upset that Fuji TV had kept the second part secret for all this time. Typical of Fuji TV - they parse the single interview over weeks and months to draw out viewership. It breaks the flow of thought and expression which are important for understanding the context.  So this is from the period just after JNats, not a new interview for the Worlds. Fuji suffering from advanced Dry Cactus ðŸŒµsyndrome .

So he has:

- double masks

- portable air purifier (me want!!!)

- been observing social distancing

- chosen the shortest, least crowded travel route.

Translation from Nikkan's article (Please delete this if double posted. We have gone pages so I have no idea which one has been posted or not):

- Basically, as mentioned, he aimed to stay healthy and return to JPN safely. There is a click bait (2 questions!!) on results, we all can guess what it's about, but Yuzu isn't having it and just reiterates he just wants to get out of this safe and sound. Yuzu's comment on the competitor is that he is great but also pays attention to COVID prevention. Yuzu really stresses the importance of COVID prevention here :) 

- For now the layouts will be the same. IMO chances are he will upgrade them once he gets all the right conditions to do so.

- The reasons he was late was because of the earthquake that happened right before he left, so he couldn't take the Shinkansen and his training plan therefore is a bit mixed up, but he has acclimatized himself with the ice conditions despite getting there later than intended. 

- It is likely he will be at the Gala also. 

- He calls his programs his kids :10742289:  and said it's meaningful to him if they can convey a positive message and bring smile to everyone :) 

 

All in all, media may twist his words to serve their agendas, esp Western media, but he has made himself very clear: He is at this competition because he has to be there, so he can reserve spots for Japan. He PRIORITIZES staying safe, healthy, and maintaining his conditions towards the end.

(I wanna know on which jump zuzu fell and possibly a complete report on all the jumps and everything else...well, at least he just looked sheepish. Sigh, I miss the full reports we got at JNats, down to "blowing his nose" and "taking a sip". I wonder if Yuzuru actually prefers practice like this, with just a few people in the stands, instead of the full house he gets whenever public is allowed...)

I think this is a higher quality version of a news segment already posted. Jpn media are being on the sting side tho (at least as vids)

https://twitter.com/aoyuzu205/status/1374475412055617537?s=20

 

@SeimeiOrigin and all the new satellites, if it can help navigate the fanyu lingo this thread (which is not exactly always up-to-date and by always I mean I don't think I've added H&E already and some entries have been sitting in my doc for...a while oops) might help

:tumblr_inline_n18qrbDQJn1qid2nw:

 

 

I don't think all the reasons why we love Yuzu could ever fit in small space they allotted for the text:laughing:

At least this one is better than what the one the ISU had for the ISUscamAwards nominations:4:

(They could have chosen a better pic for Rika and I'm a bit :think: at some parts of Shoma's description, and it's weird that they didn't mention he's the first to land 4F I mean no matter my beef with his rotations on that jump, officially he's the one who landed it)

 

 

in normal speed the first time I thought it was round, then the slow mo gave me some doubts. But with this video quality, when I manage to freeze the image when she is on (I think)the quarter, I can't really tell for sure if she's on the ice already (maybe just the toe pick? Can' tell). The first frame when I can tell for sure she's on the ice is past the quarter mark, so I'd probably stick with my first impression...maybe?:tumblr_inline_n2pjd0smCx1qdlkyg: (me wanna the HD superslowmo, I'd love to know if first gut feeling was accurate LOL)

Certainly it looks much improved compared to some of her earliest attempts. A panel for sure wouldn't call it and not even review.

 

//on covid

luckily today we got no additional bad news (wonder if they did an additional round of testing on contacts or are just waiting for the one that was already planned. If it's the secodn, we're screwed). One can only hope that, with one positive cases, people have been more careful. There has been a vid of skaters all gathering to leave their items rinkside, ad while one can think that it's not so serious, since skaters will gonna share the ice for a good 35 minutes, it's an unnecessary gathering. It's maybe a small thing, but together with other apparently small things (like the paper hearts and the advice to use gloves) makes me think that...they didn't really thoroughly htought about these kind of small tasks, that oculd have been easily carried out in a more appropriate manner :/

Since the time shared on the ice is the one that can't really be minimized, minimizing every other occasion of "breathingthe same air" should ahve been the obvious aim, but it doesn't look so. And maybe (hopefully) some things would be an excess of precaution, but, as they safe, better safe than sorry, and IMO it's this kind of attitude that is somewhat lacking. Chances of infection in a particular setting might be almost non-existent but when you give it several chances and several people, then risk increases. The fact that more than one event with similar double testing to enter the "bubble" reuslted in...well, several infections inside the bubble, should have worried ISU but instead fans are the only ones worrying (and some skaters too). One can only hope that luck and people's behaviour will be enough.

Oh well.

In the meanwhile, there's a minor quarantining, and no chaperon (probably the team leader or the coahc are in charge of checking on her, and hopefully that's enough). Even for a young athlete used to travel and maybe stay far from family, and with statistics on symptoms for young healthy people on her side, this whole situation can't be easy (Hopefully she won't be an outliner of the statistics)

Sorry - just catching up on this thread.  It's been a flood of info from interviews and comments on the SP!  

 

I think parts of this interview has been translated now, but I can give you the gist of what he says in this Quadruple Axel interview:

 

He talks about the ups and down in the post JNats period - including the earthquake that made a mess inside his house and was mentally distressing for him.  

He says he was seriously training for 4A until the very last minute, and is very disapointed that he had to let it go this time.   He adds that by doing the 4As (or training for 4As - not clear if he means he actually landed them or just making attempts) he suffered considerable muscle pain in the beginning, but he no longer feels so much pain, and actually when doing runthroughs for Short and Free programs he finds that he is able to do all the other (non 4A) jumps in a more relaxed manner.   Then he adds that he decided not to include 4A in the program only 3 days before departure.  

 

Well, it looks like he is really coming very close to including the 4A in his program.   It's a matter of time and conditioning - he is gaining significant core muscle strength in the process.

Former referee Masaru Ogawa affirms the true awesomeness of Yuzuru Hanyu, who transcends the understanding of the referee

 
It is still "underrated"! Yuzuru Hanyu (26 = ANA), who won the men's short program (SP) at the World Figure Skating Championships (Stockholm, Sweden) for the second time in a row, marked 106.98 points and took the lead. He made a big step forward to become the third world champion for the first time in four years. Meanwhile, former referee Masaru Ogawa (56), who holds the record of winning the All Japan Championship for the fourth consecutive time (1983-86), asserted to this paper that "the referee does not know the true awesomeness of Hanyu." What is the amazing potential of the absolute champion?
 
 
The absolute champion, who stood in the center of the silver plate, folded his arms and smiled. When the light rock number "Let Me Enter You" was played in the unattended venue, he moved his limbs as if he could feel the eyes of the fans with his whole body.
 
When the quadruple salchow at the beginning and the continuous toe loop of quadruple-3 revs are landed, the triple accelerator (3 revs and a half jump) in the latter half adds 3.43 points. Although he missed the level in the step, he showed dignity with a score higher than his junior Yuma Kagiyama (17 = Hoshigaki International High Yokohama) who achieved over 100 points.
 
 
After the match, Hanyu said, "I think it's much more mentally stable than it was at the time of the All Japan (Championship) (December last year), and I think it's done carefully one by one." "I hope that the song itself, the background felt from the program itself, the memories that remain in you, and the memories will be reminded as much as possible."
 
 
Although he has made great strides in taking the top for the third time, the absolute champion is no longer reigning at the top of the world as a person who has surpassed victory and defeat. Mr. Ogawa analyzes its appeal as follows.
 
 
"Why can he keep the championship position for so many years? Because he has a tremendous skill called" energy-saving jump ". Instead of jumping by force, he is at the edge of force from takeoff to landing and getting off. I'm not jumping. People who jump by force will disappear in a few years, even if it's good momentarily. "
 
 
In addition, Mr. Ogawa placed an order on the scoring side and said, "It is often said that the ball will fly if you relax with golf. At the same time, it is really difficult to relax and jump with high quality. The referee, who is learning on the desk and scoring as he sees it, does not know how great Hanyu is."
 
 
He also pointed out that Hanyu tends to be given a strict score, "Everyone knows his best performance. I have a strong memory of it, so I will definitely compare it. That is where scoring is difficult." 
 
 
Next year's Beijing Olympics, which will take three consecutive victories, will come at the age of 27. Mr. Ogawa said, "Because he wears energy-saving jumps, he can jump even if his strength weakens. He is still a crisp jump at the age of 26, and if he retires, he can control it. At the age of 40, he will be able to jump four turns. He may be a professional skater until he is 50, "he predicted a surprising future. The invisible technique of "relaxing power" has a great impact on the lifespan of athletes.

I look forward to watching LMEY in a huge ice rink full of people (and me in the audience, of course!)! Yuzu and the audience would completely blow off the roof.

 

I hope he will find was he is looking for and find some meaning in his skating at the WC. He has already given us more than we could ever expect. Now I only hope that he will also be happy and satisfied with his performances. :tumblr_inline_n18qr5lPWB1qid2nw:

Google translation “Yuzuru Hanyu from Sendai ranked 3rd in the world in the free "Ten to Chi to" performance that makes you feel the beauty of Japanese and the strength of the Sengoku warlords at the World Figure Skating Championships. I think it was a tournament in the midst of adversity for Hanyu, and I believe that the blue flames will burn again strongly and strongly.”

Sigh.

Media support can be changeable, plus, there are political interests in Jpn FS too. One has only to think about their domestic scoring, and the fact that previous JSF president is deep in political games and holds an inordinate amount of power (and also recommended the current JSF president with his questionable takes).

Plus, at times jpn media have an uncanny eagerness to celebrate others above their own. And hey, athletic excellence should be acknowledged regardless of⁰ nationality, but when there is gross injustice being overlooked, adding to the toxic narratives against your own is like screwing them twice.

 

Tbh I don't remember specifically after those Nats19, but I remember that leading to PC there were things like a professor publishing a jump "analysis" that propped Shoma's jumps and undermined Yuzu's.* Some people made up imaginary flaws on his skating and components (though they framed them as concerns and wishes for him to do more.).

*Iirc earlier that season or the one before journals had also published edited photos of Shoma's 4F(iirc) look enormous.

 

Of course not all media are ready shove Yuzuru under the bus after one bad day. Aside theibvious consideration that he is very popular and has a very covetable selling power, there are many who are genuinely on his side and who'd give him a reassuing pat on his back if he has a bad day. There were some touching articles by photographers in the months leading to PC, and Wakasugi has just released a similar message now. I don't remember if it has been already shared here or in another thread

Wait? Noooo, why can't he take a break😢



Has this been already reported?

Yuzuru admitted that he had asthma attack during the free program.

 

Daily Sports:

https://news.yahoo.co.jp/articles/de5793efd36fc3b45de87e5be695b860b09b59e0

 

 ç¾½ç”Ÿã¯ã€Œãœã‚“そくの発作はフリーの後でちょっと感じた。終わってみると、苦しかったなと思うぐらいで。ちょっとしたトラブルが続いていて、ほんのちょっとのほころびが積み重なった。自分の中で原因は分かっているし、点差ほど大きなミスではない。やりきれたという感覚はある」と、振り返った。

 

Hanyu said, "I felt a bit of an asthma attack after the free skate. When it was over, I just thought I had difficulty in breathing.  I've been having a bit of trouble successively, and little flaws kept piling up. I know what caused it, and it wasn't as big a mistake as the difference in points. I feel like I did my best."

 

Sorry for my rough translation.

for the Biellman, whoa Turin feels. Isn't it amazing that he's still doing it at 26? To keep such a flexibility in his shoulders and back, amazing:tumblr_inline_mg16go8gBg1qdlkyg: (argh for the non-yuzu focused cam)

 

now time to pray for Yuzuru to get away from that place as fast as he can, healthy.

His focus seem to be still strong, he disn't sound defeated and hopeless, so that's good.

Also praying for JSF to stop the WTT madness.

 

Safe travle home to other skaters too.

Seems like the rumors were onto something :cry:

Automatic translation :

"The asthma attack itself felt a bit after free. It was a bit painful when i finished it. There is also a feeling that I was able to do more than that, such as ranking, score."

 

Edit: IK translated it:

So it looks like it's true. Poor baby! :weeping:

 

But at least he seems to feel better today. Otherwise he probably wouldn't skate in the gala.

I'm lowkey :embSwan: because why does he moves like this? :laughing:

I mean, Yuma was searching for a place too, but he wans't doing so while looking so ridiculously adorb:tumblr_inline_mm2wbaeqQM1qz4rgp:

 

 

 

also, good that so many skaters were wearing masks. If this cursed WC won't have any more case, it will be thank to individual responsibility and those people doing more than what ISU asked from them:tumblr_inline_mzx8wwBqAg1r8msi5:

Yuzu walks so elegantly even when wearing his skates. :grin:

 

His walking-on-dry-land-with-skates skills have definitely improved. :wink2:

It is, I translated their full commentary :heart:

(I hope I didn't get the commentators mixed up)

 

Commentators:
Katarina Hulting
Angelica Olsson

 

Before skate:

KH: Now we are going to watch the bronze medalist in the men's competition, the reigning Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu.

KH: He is from Japan, and the first in modern times to (I almost said) win two Olympics in a row.

 

After skate:

AO: Yes, now you were crying.

KH: Yes but I'm saying, there is not, in all the years I have commentated figure skating, there is no skater that has had such a philosophical, reflective relationship to their skating as Yuzuru Hanyu.

AO: No and it's cool. It is incredibly cool, and even though he only placed third here, it is a, he is a star, and he can connect this beautifully, and he can in the short program deliver a tough program. He did feel that he was a bit off balance in the free skate, that was why he dropped his placement to third place. As he was first after the short program. But now, he is actually going home to practice the quad axel that he is going to use next season, at, when it is time for the Olympics.

KH: Yes it is so beautiful that one has to cry a bit.

AO: Yes, that you can do.

gosh i miss him so much already wtf ajdslf;jasdlk;fjasl and we won't see him (hopefully) until next season...asjdlfkjasd;lfjas;lkdfja;sdl


He has a big 'but...' though. 

He plans to include in first competition next season but

1) he must land it successfully 

2) he doesn't want to just add in 4A and do another jump. He wanted to make sure it fit into his program. 

 

I don't even think (1) is hard for him now. Pretty sure he landed 4A but probability of fully rotated is perhaps not high enough. (2) is probably harder since knowing him, he wants his program to make sense aesthetically and all the jumps must fit with his music. However, we still have plenty of time till the next season. I really hope this pandemic will go away soon so that we can have next season with no worry. 

 

Here's another video with his full answers in Japanese text on screen.

THAT outside edge from a different angle *right in the kokoro* :10636614:

 

(and still, his expression as he eased out was that of an artist in the zone and not of an athlete who just landed a monstrous jump at all)

Fans pointed out that Yuzu's suitcases have stickers of Jaybird and Audio46. And then he listed his hobbies on ISU bio as none :grin:

 

PS: I forgot Fostex is right there too :grin:

Full German ARD ONE Commentary on Yuzu's SP by Daniel Weiss:

 

"How much we will be entertained, depends on the jumps, too. Quadruple Salchow coming up... Yes, sir! Tight, but good.

Quadruple-triple...

[He remained silent until the end of the performance]

 

Insane. Everything right on the accent of the music. That was pure entertainment, that was insane. The Galactic is back! Yuzuru Hanyu. Who shall stop this man?

Brian Orser. [Camera showing him at the rinkside]

Normally it would rain Winnie The Poohs now. The superstar from Japan. There are no words for this. Which superlatives shall you find, for these three minutes? Every accent fit there. I'm sure, in the program components there will be some tens and rightly so. The program components alone-

Let's listen what Brian says to him: 'So much fun!' That's true. He had fun out there.

9.75 [for] skating skills, transitions 9.36, performance 9.68, choreography 9.54, interpretation 9.71 points.

[Replay showing the Salchow] The quad! [Replay showing 4T 3T] The second quad, perfect position in the air. Costume matching [the program] with the black blades. Triple added after it.

 

This is from a different planet [literally: from another star], who shall stop him? There is only one man on this planet who can stop him and he comes second to last and his name is Nathan Chen.

That was, for me, the best short program in the history of figure skating.

 

[This part has been cut from the short clip, but it's available in the full broadcast]

To have the coolness to translate every accent of the music into [body] movements, to focus on the choreography [and] the difficult quadruple jumps. Fantastic. That will be the lead of course and with a big margin and it will be top scores. 111.82 is his personal best.

[Scores announced]

I think, he would have deserved to top that record. He is satisfied with almost 107 points, but honestly: this choreography, this performance - That was a cracker!"

Fans are posting pictures for Yuzu using the hashtag #隔離中の羽生くんへ over on Twitter. Lots of cherry blossoms and cats.

It makes me happy to see him so cherished.

Eta: There is also another hashtag used, #羽生結弦さんとりあえず猫をどうぞ:
