2012 4cc

youtube

“You can notice there’s a bandage on his right eye, he had an accident with the door when leaving the hotel, was in first aid and treated when he arrived at the arena….”

Hanyu jumps his opening quad toe and everyone gasped.

“What’s obvious to me is that walking through a door is harder for him than doing 4 revolutions.” XD

I love CBC commentaries but the video quality is quite low and sometimes so hard to find =.= Here if you want HQ vid :D

[EDIT: More information on how he hit the door thanks to @ettle and @jardinaquatique (thanks), I’m glad he hasn’t got to that level of carelessness to hit the door on his own :)))]

“I think this incident had to do with fan encounter and he hit his head as a result.”

“i remember this! i believe it had to do with some sort of overzealous fan interaction distracting him and he walked into the door and injured his eye as a result ;;; that’s why he had to wear glasses at the banquet“

Hanyu 4CC

Eurosport didn’t do the free skate live transmission (wtf?), so I had to rush to find a livestream. I got a pretty good one, and just as Hanyu started the second half of his program the stream froze. Arghh…

Probably right along with most people watching, including Brian, who were trying to figure out what the hell was happening on that ice. lol

I only got it back for the Kiss&Cry, and I was happy Yuzuru and Brian were both very happy and chatty. He got over 200 and 300 combined, so I think he was very pleased.

I can’t believe he got that, while making changes in a highly complex, intensive, technical program, on the fly. And just because he was feeling good, he did a triple axel as his last jump. On the free skate. Four minutes in. Of a complex, intensive, technical program. Ah. Chill has left the building and dropped off a cliff. LOL

Even Brian was thanking him. XD It’s so great to see them hug. Hanyu is a hugging machine with Brian (and Javi), and you can really tell how fantastic their relationship still is, after 5 long years.

So basically Hope and Legacy was also a completely different program. Yuzu skipped/changed a lot of choreo elements and spins to catch up with the music and fit in the jumps. Kind of an all around mess. BUT YOU COULDN’T EVEN TELL IF YOU DIDN’T KNOW. And that’s how you recognize a champion. When they can make it beautiful and effortless, even when things don’t go right.

So I guess I should be productive while waiting for some news :D Here’s one video cut made by Japanese media that I find really funny (not sure abt you guys :3) It’s just a normal interview but they added all this dramatic music and graphics and narrations like a movie teaser :))))


[Narration: (dramatic music) And so, we asked him this question: If your ideal is 100%, then how many percent are you at now?]

Y: I wanna say that it’s around 30%.

[Narr: His own evaluation is 30%. (written) This is still no good at all!]

Y: I want to bring my potentials to infinity. It’s really fun to see how much more progress I can make. 

[Narr: The world is also moving, (written) I cannot stop here!]

anonymous asked:

As a child I loved fs but never was allowed to start lessons and therefore had to "get over it". I do know the basic rules but am completely lost when it comes to the skaters so could you maybe make an essential list of the vip ones rn please?

Sorry for the late reply! Here’s a list of some of the top figure skaters of the 2016-17 season. It doesn’t include everyone, naturally. A few top junior skaters who will turn senior in 2017-18 are included and marked with an asterix. If you’d like more detailed info on some of these skaters, you can browse through our competition previews! (Or read their Wikipedia bios.)

List updated after 2017 Worlds.

Tessa x Latin Rhythms dance dresses of the past

Here’s the different dresses that Tessa has worn to perform the Latin Rhythms dances. She has worn, most of the time, pink/orange dresses.

 My personnal favorites are the yellow dress worn for the 2011 Worlds, the pink/purple one for the 2012 4CC and Worlds & the blue one. 

Lovely designs & the pink tasseled/fringed dress was so fun of the ice too.

The men of the JWC 2012 podium at 4CC 2015 - waiting for their own scores after great skates and later being happy for the competitors outscoring them (in Jasons case that was Han, in Hans it was Josh)

In case you didn’t love them enough already, they’re also great human beings :)
