    Thanks very much for the link. You're right - there is not a lot of information about Hanyu in English. And who knew he had an autobiography?

    This cracked me up:

    When I stood on the podium at the Daiei Cup, I lifted my trophy up high, showing it to the audience. Despite wearing a childish sweat suit, I was totally pretending to be just like Plushenko. And I was smiling with no teeth!"
    He is extremely mature for his age, and exceedingly humble. Between his enormous talent and his "I can always work hard and improve" attitude, I think he is bound for continued success.
    "I miss footwork that has any kind of a discernible pattern. The goal of a step sequence should not be for a skater to show the same ice coverage as a Zamboni and take about as much time as an ice resurface. " ~ Zemgirl, reflecting on a pre-IJS straight line sequence
