No cameras allowed at any comps or shows in Japan ever. :( Only exception is, I think, PIW when fans can chat with skaters. 

Wait what...is the live stream still avaliable?!!

And no fancam means we will straight to the competition with no mental preparation....

I can't believe there was a time, however long ago, that Yuzuru Hanyu had to be taught the basics of posing with a medal. I always thought it was something he was born with! :D

 

Recently I watched the mess that was this competition...

 

HE WAS GIVEN A SILVER MEDAL INSTEAD OF GOLD 🤦🤦🤦 I'm sure he never made a mistake like this ever again 😂

I was working on this last weekend hoping to get it done for New Year's but it took longer than I thought to streamline how I wanted to format it, then phrasing things so they flowed better while keeping the meaning, then writing the extra notes at the end with research and relevant info. I'm glad some people are finding it useful!

 

Thank you very much for your excellent translation. I think the article is very interesting.

I think Yuzu said that he wanted CoR cuz of Origin and his origins, maybe he planned CoC also, we don't know when ISU decided on Helsinki - before GP seeds or after. I think they will want him at NHK again, but I'll take whatever as long as he competes and we have major events like GPF and WC outside Japan (I love Japan but getting tickets is a nightmare)

 

There were rumours that when Helsinki agreed to take the competition on short notice, they asked for or were offered the two Olympic champs Yuzu and Alina - Yuzu may also have asked for it, he certainly wouldn't mind as it's a lucky venue for him.  Russia I have also heard he specifically requested.

 

I think the first and second seed do have dibs on actual choices, and Shoma probably wanted NHK...

I don't think we'll ever know the full picture, there's saying that Feds/hosts of GP have more power in choosing then skaters, but of course Fed may ask skater's wish and this time CoR and NHK were too close anyway, so too hard for Yuzu to do both, the most surprise was Yuzu skipping SC this time, maybe even more then NHK.

Shows I understand but I thought they will be more lenient for international competition. And here I was thinking if I should get a video cam... Japan, when I said my new year resolution is to save money, I didn’t expect to have it done in this manner.... :waffle:

You'd hope they would at least allow it at the open practices. Guess this is one of the reasons so many Japanese FS fans travel abroad to watch competitions. That, and the comparative ease of getting tickets.

My understanding is that the higher-ranked skaters get right of refusal on their assignments but can't specifically request them in advance...and I have no idea where I originally heard that. 

 

My guess is that if skaters do have choice in their GP assignments, they probably pick the comps that work best with their training plan. For example, a skater doing ice shows well into the summer might not feel ready to do SA, since it's the first on the schedule in October. Likewise if they're trying to peak for a certain comp after GP season, they might want to pick a mid-November comp or earlier... I don't know how tapering towards competitions works in the figure skating world, but timing probably matters.

They definitely won’t allow photography or video, even for practices. I’m not sure we’ll even get broadcasts. :/ It’s usually just drips and drabs in news reports.
