From https://twitter.com/axelsandwich/status/1063770318743855104I can’t believe yuzuru was able to change his layout on an injured foot with only about 6min of practice and still managed to land 3 quads???? ;;
As RuPaul says every once in a while, "why it gotta be BLACK?"Yuzuru is a legend not only for what he can achieve when things are going well, but for what he can do against the odds when things are black, how he can pull these amazing achievements against all the odds.
Japan can feel as proud of him for that as his 2 Oly gold, IMO.
Yuzuru says he will not retire yet: https://twitter.com/BluecosmosH/status/1063808109544697857I'm now worried about him & his ability to keep competing, going forward, if the ligaments in his ankle are so weakened and vulnerable to injury.
I'd told myself that I was just going to enjoy whatever performances he gave us this season, without expecting anything more. Need to keep reminding myself of that.
It's just obvious that he has so much more to give--and a very great desire to do so. So I just hope his body will cooperate ....

He also damaged the outer and inside part of his ankle."
FromIs there an update in his current injury?
andAs the clock ticks down to the start of the Grand Prix Final in Vancouver on 6 December, Hanyu is hoping that he can not only return to the rink, but also be at his competitive best as he eyes a fifth title in the event.
"The swelling around his ankle has yet to subside and so he is applying ice on the area and staying off his feet at much as possible until he can get it properly examined." - Japan Skating Federation Director of High Performance, Yoshiko Kobayashi, told The Asahi Shimbun.
From https://twitter.com/iron_klaus/status/1064423298535227392?s=21"According to JSF Director Kobayashi, the Team Doctor examined his foot. The prognosis was based on touching and looking at #YuzuruHanyu's foot and he suspects that there are two areas of his Lisfranc joint have been damaged as well his tendon."
From http://nanoka12.tumblr.com/post/180270019481/consecutive-gp-series-victories-yuzuru-hanyusRegarding skating, Hanyu said “Once the injury is healed there is no reason to say that this is the end”. After that it becomes a question of whether he can train sufficiently, whether he can skate the way he wants to. That is precisely why he considered what he must choose among the three projected competitions – this Cup of Russia, the GPF, and Japanese Nationals. His conclusion was to compete in the FS at the Cup of Russia.
https://twitter.com/yolo4A/status/1064522849669521410There are some interesting points in this new Brian's interview to Russian media (I am not sure if it has been already translated): 1. Brian feared at first that the injury was as serious as last year's one but fortunately it is not.
In a sense yes but the GPF is important to stamp that he is still the one to beat heading into worlds. Missing it and Uno or Chen (more likely Uno) winning it, could do a lot to damage that perception.I would think his national competition and Worlds are more important than the GPF.
I can’t heal Yuzuru Hanyu's unfortunate injury, but I can give you a minute with him in my pictures. With the support I’ve never seen before, you have truly earned it! This is for all you, Yuzurus fans out there!!
Er... you mean, people will have forgotten he’s a two time Olympic champion by then? I wonder how he came to win the Olympics last season, then, if he missed the GPF?In a sense yes but the GPF is important to stamp that he is still the one to beat heading into worlds. Missing it and Uno or Chen (more likely Uno) winning it, could do a lot to damage that perception.
After 2 Olympic gold medals back to back? Probably not for Hanyu. Judges would know that he was out due to injury.In a sense yes but the GPF is important to stamp that he is still the one to beat heading into worlds. Missing it and Uno or Chen (more likely Uno) winning it, could do a lot to damage that perception.
Not unless they and everyone else do significantly better than they have so far - he has all three top scores already and in the SP is 5-odd points ahead of Shoma's home ground best. To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if one of the two manages to beat his current FS score at the finals... but given what we've seen, I would be just as unsurprised if they didn't.In a sense yes but the GPF is important to stamp that he is still the one to beat heading into worlds. Missing it and Uno or Chen (more likely Uno) winning it, could do a lot to damage that perception.
I'm shocked!Yuzu has WD from GPF due tk ankle injury from CoR: https://twitter.com/kyodonewsports/status/1067994033643896833?s=21
They say he needs 3 weeks to heal and about 1 month for rehabilitation.
From https://twitter.com/tinylorando/status/1068220095904837638According to Brian Orser, he was injured the same right ankle, but he sprained in the opposite direction last year. By hurting both sides in just one year, the burden on the feet (right foot) which is for landing all jumps will increase further.
