Things were not easy for Yuzu going into this season, from the heartbreak of Boston, to being off-ice for 2 months because of his lis franc ligament injury, to struggling to get used to his jumps again when he could finally step back into the rink, to nearly skipping the entire season…
Against all odds, Yuzuru gave us a season full of miracles and firsts. He fought like a true champion throughout.
