    Here's an English translation of a Japanese article in Nihon Keizai Shinbun newspaper about Hanyu's first-hand experience of last month's earthquake/tsunami: http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sh...-Championships&p=560350&viewfull=1#post560350

    Sylvia, thank you for relaying the info. I should have posted here earlier, as well as at Golden Skate, but there is a good news coming from Sendai recently.

    According to their website, Ice Rink Sendai, which is a home rink to many Tohoku-based skaters including Yuzuru, is working to reopen at the beginning of August.
