Tracy did say that yuzu was doing quads but other then that it has been pretty quite
Fingers crossed for him. I know he'd only been doing quads for a couple of weeks before the Olys so he obviously has the history to back him up, but i'd be interested to know when he started jumping again and how his return has been going.

The 4Lo is there in his planned program content, but he hasn't done any official practices yet. (He only arrived in Japan earlier today.)

in a groundbreaking update, yuzu said 'I will work hard' when asked about his enthusiasm/motivation for the competition but he also smiled at the cheers of support from the many fans who had gathered at the airport

brian was also interviewed and says 'A good feeling. Well, keep watching.' (いい感じだ。まあ見ててよ). (JPN wording can be translated in many ways so I kind of want to see what he actually said in ENG, 見ててよ is a softer version of 'please watch')

I just hope if he is not 100% he doesn't do something to re-injure himself, or make his situation worse. How many injuries has he had in recent years and had to skip Grand Prix/final? What is the point this year of trying for another world gold? With 2 OGM and so many earned accolades, he could skip this year and make sure he is 100% before competing at such a high level. But, that is an elite athlete - they don't give up easily.

So, now he's done his first official practice. From Jackie's practice notes:
No single jumps today - after a few laps and edge work, Yuzuru Hanyu goes 3A and 4T3T to open his practice session

Looks like he really is going for the 4Lo despite probably not being 100%
Just a bit of a grimace and a lift of his landing foot after landing a beautiful 4Lo - Yuzuru Hanyu is probably not totally pain-free at this point, but he looks amazing out there

I'm torn between :yikes:and :cheer:

Prayers for his right ankle...
