I wonder if the winner is kind of given an indication that they've won so that they are sure to show up...

 

It happened in the past few years that the winner couldn't go...Valentino Rossi or Kim Clijsters when they won the Comeback award, Lindsey Vonn when she won the Sportswoman award, the Spanish football team etc...they took a video of them with the award which was shown during the ceremony.

Like @rockstaryuzu says if it has an impact on training then Yuzu most likely won't go. But we'll see how he decides...

We can lead to a small discussion on which 3A jumps in Yuzu's skating history you think are most closet to 4A.

I'm not sure, if this has been shared somewhere already, but Yuzu has now been officially nominated for the international Laureus Sports Award 2019 in the category 'best comeback of the year'!!  :english1:

The five contenders for this award besides Yuzu are:
CAN Mark McMorris (snowboarding)
NED Bibian Mentel-Spee (snowboarding)
IND Vinesh Phogat (wrestling)
USA Lyndsey Vonn (skiing)
USA Tiger Woods (golf)

All my fingers crossed for Yuzu. He could become the first figure skater ever to win a Laureus!!

 

The award ceremony is scheduled for the 18th February. Since it's a really big thing, I'm sure that Yuzu will be there despite his preparations for Worlds, no?

So we could see him again earlier than expected! :59227c768286a__s:

I really hope he could come, because this is Such a huge thing and his presence would put a deeper impression of Hanyu Yuzuru being a Nominee for a Laureus award. I don't know, but usually in big awards if someone is a winner then the organizers would try to make sure that person is there for acceptance? If he's not coming there then that means chance of him winning is smaller.

But being nominated alone is a big acheivement, specially for a figure skater. And I'm sure his competitors are great sportsmen who went through tough times too, so good luck to all of them! :softYuzu:

That certainly makes the most sense. So many sports are going on at a given time around the world that it's impossible for everyone to be available to just hop over to Monaco for a ceremony... and this isn't down time for figure skating, so I have a feeling Yuzu won't go, even if we'd all love to see him there and he'd probably enjoy it as well.

Just my 2 cents here...the 3A's Yuzu was doing in practice at ACI were so big and airy that it was immediately obvious he'd been training 4A.

Here's a bit of a thought for everybody to ponder - If Yuzu does not retire after next season he's probably intending to go to Beijing.  I cannot see him retiring in the season preceding the Olympics.  If he does go to Beijing he'll probably be the leading storyline for the press.  Only one person has ever won three consecutive golds in the men's skating and that was way back in the 1920s into the 30s.
