Here’s to Yuzuru’s positively golden 2013-2014 season! It hasn’t been easy, but with hard work and determination, you have won three of the biggest figure skating championships and have truly defined yourself as one of the world’s greatest skaters. Here’s to Parisienne Walkways, one of the greatest short programs of all time, and to Romeo and Juliet, a true testament to your growth these past years since your senior debut. A chapter of your life has come to a close, but a new one has already begun. It’s been an absolute pleasure to watch you perform. Rest up and come back next season with more brilliant programs.
