Wow! Thanks for all yout insights. I guess being a Yuzu fan needs a Yuzu-level of patience. I don't know how you guys do it! Hahahahaha

 

In other news, few more days before ACI. This is the 1st comp I'll be watching/following as a fan. But I don't want to watch it real time because I'm a jinx. Hahahaha. But how to resist? Lols. 

 

Have a great day, everyone!!!

Fear not, ACI is the time for first pancakes :pancake:

Hey on the bright side for Javi; he achieved straight European titles, and 2 straight world titles, whilst Hanyu never won Worlds consecutively, and he hasn't won 4CC yet (equivalent to European or similar).

 

But Hanyu won 2 olympics, which are better, but Javi still achieved titles Hanyu has yet to achieve. 

 

 

Well Javi doesn't have GPF gold either.  And of course winning a consecutive Olympics highly trumps a consecutive worlds.  I don't really get why it's a bigger deal to win something consecutively a couple times (save for the olys due to the time gap). Winning consecutively shows good performance over a closer period.  Winning things spread out shows that you're capable of reaching the top level over a longer time period.

Well the Japanese media certainly loves 

orimpiku "Ni Nen Pa"

 

or GPF "Yon Nen Pa"

 

It's just another achievement title. Consecutive titles are hard to achieve likewise too.

 

I remember Japanese commentary always emphasizing it was Yuzu's "Yon nen pa" when he won GPF in 2016. 

They emphasize it more than any other media in my opinion :xD:

I think consecutive titles show dominance, but for me it needs to be a string of about 4 to make me think much of it.  Like, if Yuzu gets a 3rd worlds (this year please skate gods), I don't consider that lesser than Chan's 3. Gold is gold.

I'm not sure about the fashion sense....there was that great white T-shirt of last media day. Actually, other than for those commercials does he wear anything other than black, white and gray? Sometimes navy? I think the most vibrant colors are on his UA.

Olympic gold is worth about 4 Worlds gold just by regularity and the extra amount of pressure skaters have to endure  ( I know fans of skaters who never won Olympic and only Worlds love to argue against that), but that is how it is reflected in the skating world. I recall Shizuka saying that she originally wanted to retire when she won Worlds but she did not get much pay-rise at the ice shows. Because of that she continued on to go to the Olympics, and after she won, the pay rise was huge. And if you look at the title of skaters on the Japanese ice shows, if a skater has an Olympic silver or bronze, they get introduced as such even if they had won World gold. Hence, at least in Japan, any Olympic medal is worth more than Worlds gold.

 

Hence the lack of a Olympic medal at Sochi is why Javi never was seen as to be in an equal rivalry with Yuzu the way Yagudin/Plushenko or Yuna/Mao was.

 

Consecutively just sounds good I guess - has a more ring to it.  

 

Compared to that I don't understand why people place more value on Patrick's 3 consecutive World wins than Yuzu's 4 consecutive GPF wins - I understand World still has  higher legacy prestige than GPF due to its longer history, but in reality winning the GPF is no less harder than World - the pressure is the same for both -  in fact GPF is harder because you have to prove yourself over three events, such that the winner is less likely to be a "just happen to have a good day" type of winner. Hopefully after GPF has a longer history its prestige increases.

Think about it, now Yuzu still has chance to win 4cc as he's still competing, while javi's career is done w/o GPF title. Yuzu 4cc curse isnt the worst lol.
