Rather than a friend, more like an acquaintance that Brian might like to keep up good vibe with. lol. It is not like one can just reject guests, so, the people within must act smartly/accordingly if they want to keep secret. Moreover, if one feels uncomfortable with someone, they will tend to act more restrain even in training. 

Personally, from the discussions that seem to happen behind the scene among trustworthy (I mean, those who are not in the media to just share gossips) coaches and experts and athletes, I tend to believe 4A has been landed, but inconsistently, that for some perfectionists, it is not deserved to be shown to the public as per this moment. 

By the way, 4A is more a quint jump, it is not too far-fetch to think, that maybe... training quintuple jump is actually a way to help perfecting 4A. lol.

Training 4Lz during ice shows, more likely because he feels that there are people whom he can ask for opinions and points of improvement.

Why does ACI seem so far awayyyyyyy.

But, I don't think we should expect 4A as soon as ACI... but, ACI seems like the perfect place to try it out in competition!

Maybe he simply doesn't want to overtrain or peak at ACI :rolleyes:

 

Especially since he doesn’t need 4Lz  to win there :happy:

What I can believe is that Yuzu looks very fit and very trained. My current theory is that he never really stopped training this Summer. We know he was back on the ice at TCC doing quads the weekend after Worlds. We can safely assume he was training the whole time he was in Toronto then. He possibly took a break to go to Japan for the monument unveiling, but then he went back to Toronto, probably for more training. Throughout FaOI, we know he was training jumps that he didn't jump in the shows.  After FaOI, someone said Ice Rink Sendai was closed the whole week, and that's more than he'd need to practice for 24HTV (and I can now confess that the Tuesday after FaOI Toyama I went to Sendai and to the Ice Rink to get a music box for my friend and it was closed and the entrance completely hidden out of view with white sheets, so my instant conclusion was that Yuzu must have been there, so I turned around and left). So even while he was still in Sendai, I believe he continued training. So, aside from maybe a few days in Japan and those days when he said he sprained his ankle before FaOI, I think he's been training constantly all Summer. If so, it actually makes sense not to go all out every day, and on some days training easier layouts.

 

As for 4A, I too believe he has landed it already. He wouldn't talk about doing it in a season if he has never landed it. That goes for last year as well. I personally think he might have landed it already before the Olympic season. But it's likely very inconsistent and he only lands one in many and possibly UR or whatever, so it's most likely not up to the level Yuzu wants it to be. BUT, I personally think he should probably start doing it in competition as soon as he's confident he can try it without risking injury too much, because he needs all the mileage he can get on it. It's not going to be perfect out of the box, I think.

Yes, it is. :) All the practice sessions are in dark grey and the men's sessions have SM in them so Thursday 13.25 is the first practice session for men.

Who are these guys celebrating Sochi OGM with Yuzu?

One of the guys is from Ajinomoto Victory project team (the guy* sitting next to Yuzu). He must be a nutritionist or something. Others are probably much the same - part of the team that supported Jpn athletes during the olympics.

Thank you! And the lady is from Ajinomoto too? She seems familiar to me.
