    I'm sure he can do it, like his "God"(he said so) :rofl: Plushy :plush:


    Totally agree with you. His future will be great. As far as I know he is one of the most talented Japanese skaters.
    My current worry is how the earthquakes in his hometown affect his future. Somehow he seems like in a hurry.


    And, thank you so much os168;3358553. Finally, my pictures folder is filled with Yuzuru. This kid is really adorable :)
    I noticed he was wearing Plushy Wristband. My younger sister has it, too. Though she doesn't wear at all. LOL

    I know it's going to be hard, because there are Brezina and Verner, Gachinski, Javier, Jeremmy, Mroz, but I am praying that he will win or make a podium in Russia. I'll keep my fingers crossed for him.

    I have been my favorite skater for long time!

    I'm glad that he receive the credit that he deserve and I'm glad that there are so many people like him.

    From one of the interview, the pooh bear is like his lucky charm.

    I think he has some fan base in China as he has his own fan page in Baidu.

    Hope he will win Cup of Russia!

    Here are three more Chinese STAN cam for you guys :)

    Pooh appeared again in his FS warm up. I am trying to figure out whether he brought it with him or were given it between taking the photos.

    Yeah Hanyu in CoR should be really interesting but it is going to be another tough battle. Weird how he is meeting Abbott and Gachinski again! And also Javier who's very popular in Russia. But if Hanyu goes clean, he can clean the lot! (Unless Gachinski get another home king overmark in PCS.)

    I wonder if Plushy will attend and say Hi ~

    I KNEW this was going to happen, but my sister was pretty sure it wouldn't. Now I'm wishing we'd made a bet...:p

    Sorry to hear of his financial problems. I hope his fed can help him out; he seems like a bright star that can bring his country much glory- may be even an OGM some day.

    Hanyu is super lucky to get into the GPF finals by the slimmest margins! But figure skating is a bit like that. It requires Jeremy to do badly, and Javier does less badly and .03 is all it took :eek: Maybe it is meant to be? :)

    He had to build his PCS from the ground up in his debut senior year, and his TES reflect his ambition to be the best he can be, on the brink of limitations.

    Hope he can take this great opportunity to show us what he is made out of. Go Hanyu!! Forget about the podium, just do your best and be proud of all you have achieved. (I am however hoping a podium finish for him)

    I'm so glad I could see him live 2 years ago in Toruń during JGP. I sooo wish he could join Dai and Taka at Worlds in Nice!

    Actually his best performance was of last year's Eastern Sectionals. I hope he lands all jumps including a 4-3 in the SP at nationals --- and the 4S at Nice worlds.

    I meant for this season :D
    Are you going to be reporting the results for Nationals this year? I know you've been reporting on sectionals and stuff like that before. It's going to be so exciting :rollin:

    Hanyu is young. I think he has a bright future because he already has the jumps and has the time to develop his overall skating.

    I already love this guy. Frightening to think how good he will be if he's this good now.

    Is Hanyu Catholic?

    I ask because he crosses himself before starting his program.

    Time to bump up this thread!

    What a fantastic performance by Hanyu to win the bronze. I can't believe this guy is just barely 17.

    Where did Winnie the Pooh go, though? Have they split? :fragile:

    For people with insight into the JSF: We had read how Hanyu had to do a lot of shows after the earthquake to earn money. What kind of funding does the JSF offer? And will this increase now that Hanyu is a world medalist?

    Hanyu is definitely one to watch. I expect to see him on the top step, very soon.

    He was terrific at the GPF and stunning at Worlds. Love the way he put every ounce of energy and emotion into his skate. He was gutted by the end but it paid off.

    Hanyu is a god, if you ask me.
    Now he will have more pressure though...just hoping he will get another sensational FS next season! i'll be delighted to watch him in the various summer shows. I worship him!

    I saw his coach holding Winnie the Pooh in the K & C.

    He did a lot of shows last summer because his training rink had been damaged by the earthquake. He used extra ice time before those shows to practice. I'm sure it helped him earn money, too, but he did all the shows to get ice time.

    Interesting, and very resourceful. Thanks for the insight, ChibiChibi.

    IMO, too. It was entrancing, and an incredible technical feat. I can't get over the fact that he can do a 3A directly out of a spread eagle with absolutely no break.

    Hanyu's entrances to his jumps were crazy difficult, yet done so artistically. I've never seen anything like it. Simply amazing
