Splitting this news off from the Japanese skating thread...

Yuzuru Hanyu change to Brian Orser !!

http://jiji.com/jc/c?g=spo_30&k=2012042500765
Via Google Translate:
"Hanyu had received guidance to the coach and Nanami Abe so far. That describes the reason for the change that the coach is "a challenge out overseas, want to raise the level more..."
Another Japanese news article: http://sportsnavi.yahoo.co.jp/winter/skate/figure/headlines/20120425-00000044-kyodo_sp-spo.html

:eek: Hasn't he always been training in Japan? This sounds like a huge change. He and Fernandez are going to have a ball with those quads.

He'll still go to school in Sendai, so I hope he won't wear himself out traveling back and forth to Toronto.

He seemed to have a good relationhip with Nanami Abe, but I can also see how training alongisde other top skaters could be a good motivational tool. Orser would be great when it comes to polishing him off.

Thanks for starting a new thread, Sylvia!

I can't help but feel that his now-former coach Nanami Abe is probably feeling devastated right now. Especially when she said she hopes to "have a good time from now on" with him(or something like that) from the YouTube video(thanks for that, btw)
I feel sad for her.

as a Yuna uber, i hoped that the thread title was a remake of the April's fool :( oh well, good luck to prince Yuzu and let's hope the new coaching situation works well for him.

What is this trend of leaving a coach as a skater reaches a pinnacle? In most jobs, if you produce quality, you get a raise - not fired!

This team always seemed to get along so well-:confused:

I had to smile at you young'uns who weren't around when every promising/almost champion skater 'had' to go to Carlo Fassi to finally reach the pinnacle. :rolleyes:

This is very surprising. He has had a lot of succes with his coach. Is ice time an issue or something?

I'm shocked. He had such a wondeful season and such a close relationship with his coach.

Seriously? Orser? :wuzrobbed I am in 10,000 depressions over the thought of Hanyu sporting high-waisted pants and suspenders next year. :fragile:

I thought Naname Abe was doing an outstanding job with him, so I'm pretty stunned by this news. Well, I hope at the very least that he will continue to collaborate with his prior choreographers but realistically we're probably now going to get :yawn: boring programs. :(

Don't get offended. You did bring up something definitely out of context.

Do you mean that for Yuna uber, Brian Orser is eville by default? :lol: Love it.

I'm not sure I am happy about this move. I love Hanyu just the way he is. He really doesn't need to have his edges smoothed, he just needs to mature.

Much as I have always loved Brian O, his skaters have not made as much progress this year as I had expected.

Never in a million years would I have thought to say this, but IMHO, Hanyu may regret this move. OMG, I can't believe I said that.

I think this is good. And really hope Brian pays attention to his posture. I am ready to be a fan but I just can't take the hunched back. :drama: Dick Button would understand.
