Hiro Mizushima or Yuzuru Hanyu?

I had no idea who Hiro Mizushima was but I don’t really find him that attractive. BUT YUZURU CAN USE ME AS AN ICE RINK. Wasn’t Yuri on Ice based on his ice skating. He has a whole character modelled after him. He’s stunning, I could watch him for hours 💕🌹

PEAKS ICE ARENA - VERY MUCH IN DANGER OF CLOSING

OKAY, IF YOU ARE ESPECIALLY A VOTER IN UTAH COUNTY, PLEASE HELP US SAVE THE ICE SKATING RINK!!!

THIS IS WHERE WE HELD THE 2002 OLYMPICS GUYS, THIS PLACE HOSTS MULTIPLE GROUPS AND PEOPLE EVERY DAY, AND IT IS A RARE AND IMPORTANT PART OF OUR AREA!!!

PLEASE HELP! 

These are reasons why the ice skating rink shouldn’t close, this is from a public document:

- With Countywide participation in figure skating, ice hockey, indoor soccer and public skating at an all-time high, this is a terrible time to push the Arena’s existence to the brink. 

-The Peaks Ice Arena has shown reduced operational subsidies every year. - Significant improvements have been funded by users, Utah County and Provo City including the ice refrigeration system, lighting, roofing and indoor turf. These investments should not be wasted by walking away. 

- The largest impacted group will be the youth of Utah County. Those wanting to continue participation in skating, hockey and group events will have to leave Utah County on a daily basis. These families pay taxes and vote in Utah County, so they expect services to be provided. 

-Utah County walking away from tax payer investments in the Peaks Ice Arena is a waste of public resources and the cooperative management agreement should be honored through the life of the arena. 

-Realistically, no other viable partners exist for Provo City, other that Utah County. Utah County terminating this agreement essentially closes the Arena at its most successful point. 

-When facilities and services are offered to Utah County residents, they become reliant on those services. The decision for the Arena to exist was made by previous County and City leaders. As the only ice arena in Utah County, this is their ONLY option for ice activities. 

 Polar Bear Youth Hockey: Only 25% of participants Provo residents 

 Peaks Adult Hockey League: Only 17% of team captains Provo residents  

Learn to Skate: Only 36% of participants Provo residents 

- Non-Provo residents should stress this facilities impact to them as a Utah County resident. - The decision to back out of the agreement was made by the County Commissioners, who are elected officials.

[Partly translation + My opinion] Shizuka’s role in Yuzuru’s career

I can never imagine how different everything will turn out today if Mao was qualified for 2006 Turino Olympics (she was 15, too young at that time for it). Because with her talent at that time, there’s chance that she might get gold at Turino.

Anyway, it’s just my guess, and anything can happen, but I still sometimes wonder like that because Shizuka, and especially because she is the 2006 Turino Olympic champion, plays such a huge role in Yuzuru’s career. Beside the inspiration Yuzuru got from an Olympic champion also from Sendai, Shizuka also helped him so much with his training. 

In this video, they show that after winning Turino, in the PC, Shizuka was concerned with the young skaters in Sendai because the ice rink she has been training in Sendai was closed down. The significance of the only Olympic gold medal made it possible for the government of Miyagi and Sendai to support the re-opening of Ice Rink Sendai and Shizuka gave a skating lesson there a year later, which Yuzuru participated in :D

According to Aoi Hono, due to the close down of the rink, Yuzuru initially thought that he would have to give up skating for at least 2-3 years. Keeping skating skills without on-ice training is difficult, and Yuzuru has the kind of body that loses muscle mass very quickly (for example, he didn’t have practice for 10 days after 3/11, and he couldn’t do any jumps because his thigh muscles were weakened so much), so I think it would be very hard for him to be competitive if Ice Rink Sendai is closed for any longer.

Also, after 3/11, Shizuka also supported Yuzuru financially so that he can get his training, and it was such an important year in his senior career.

For these two occasion, I’m very grateful for Shizuka, and to the fact that she won the Olympics so that she could do what she did. And with Yuzuru winning Sochi Olympics and donated all the profit of his autobiographies to Ice Rink Sendai, I wonder whose talent will be nurtured from this place? :3

Here’s some interesting related materials: 

1. Interview with young Yuzuru when they reopened Ice Rink Sendai

2. Interview from Shizuka’s lesson at Ice Rink Sendai, Yuzu was such a star of the show haha

OMG Look at how he still gracefully crossed his legs in that situation!!!!! Boy is extra since forever!! XD

I tried uploading this to YouTube, but it got caught by copyright the moment I tried :/ 

FYI, idk if many knows this, but this is a revenge try from this

Also, the “guy in the bird costume” is crying because making the rink is a VERY hard process, and also the chief leader of the project last year passed away from cancer.  There were so many thoughts and emotions with this project, which made Shizuka’s performance even more special :) ♥
