A compilation of all the skater cameos in Yuri!!! on Ice:

These little shoutouts to the real figure skating world amused me greatly while watching the anime, so I’ve decided to mash them all into one post:

Yuzuru Hanyu - Sochi 2014 Olympic Gold Medalist, 2014 World Champion, four time Grand Prix Final Champion (2013-16), two-time Four Continents silver medalist (2011, 2013), four time Japanese National Champion (2013-2016), current world record holder for highest short program, free skate, and combined score. 

Stephane Lambiel - two-time World Champion (2005–2006), the 2006 Olympic Silver Medalist, a two-time Grand Prix Champion (2005, 2007), and a nine-time Swiss national champion (2001–08, 2010).

Nobunari Oda -  2006 Four Continents Champion, a four-time Grand Prix Final medalist (silver in 2009 and 2010; bronze in 2006 and 2013), 2008 Japanese National Champion. Now works as a professional skater and TV commentator, and also specifically requested to appear on Yuri!!! on Ice (I’m still laughing, what a dork) 

Evgeni Plushenko - four-time Olympic Medalist (2006 gold, 2014 team gold, 2002 & 2010 silver), three time World Champion (2001, 2003, 2004), a seven-time European Champion (2000, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2010, 2012), a four-time Grand Prix Final Champion (1999–2000, 2000–01, 2002–03, 2004–05), and a ten-time Russian National Champion (1999–2002, 2004–2006, 2010, 2012–2013)

YoI Movie: Speculation

So we’re getting a movie. I have thought long and hard over this, speculating on what it is going to be about since this is all new information and not just a retelling of the show.

Many of us believe YoI takes place in 2012, because the Sochi Grand Prix Final irl, also took place in 2012. Add the fact that the GPF symbol for the YOI Barcelona GPF mimics the 2013 symbol, and it just adds to our belief.(In fanfic I prefer to keep them up to current time thanks to better technology, but I’m still on the 2012 belief as far as canon goes.)

Now, if the in-show universe did in fact begin in 2012, we have a timeline.

Starts in the 2012-13 Grand Prix Circuit.

December 2012 Sochi GPF- Yuuri is in 6th.

December 2012 Japan Nationals- Yuuri fails even further.

January 2013 European Championships - assumed Victor went and won gold.

February 2013 Four Continents Championship- Yuuri didn’t qualify or he didn’t go.

March 2013 World Championships-  Yuuri couldn’t go and Victor wins again!

April 2013- Victor flies across the world for Yuuri.

May-August- Training.

September 2013 Regionals- Yuuri wins with a new SP high score.

October 2013 GPF Qualifying Round in China - Yuuri places Second with silver, and a new SP score.

November 2013 GPF Qualifying Round in Russia- Yuuri places Fourth and squeaks into the Barcelona GPF.

December 2013 Barcelona GPF- Yuuri places Second, he and Victor skate together, both decide to continue skating, and both are the only skaters capable of a Quad Flip.

So now that the possible timeline is established, the big event that comes next isn’t the 4CC or the EC or even Worlds.

In February of 2014, the Winter Olympics take place in Russia. Sochi to be precise. And as we know from the end of Season 1, Yuuri is currently training in Russia with Victor and Yurio.

So comes my wild and barely plausible theory that the movie might be about the Olympics. Imagine the drama that could go down with them competing for different countries and the fact that Yuuri’s coach would also probably be competing. 

And if the show actually began in 2016 and ran through 2017 in-show, then they would have the 2018 Winter Olympics to face.

Anyway, these are just my thoughts. It would be pretty cool to see Yuuri win Olympic gold after all his hard work.
