The post no-one was waiting for (but that I’m doing anyway) pt.2

Dearly Beloved,

here we are gathered here today to get through this thing called Men’s Free Program – last group.

Usual warnings apply, this post may become quite long. If you feel offended by anything I write, asks box is there for you.

ISU Feed was horrible, but sadly that’s all we got since fancams are few and far between. For reference (and also because Uncle Kurt says some very interesting things about jumps) CBC broadcast here:

Let’s Go.

Because Brian Orser said, eventhough their personality and cultural background are like south and north pole,totally different, but they respect and support each other.
Yuzuru makes Javier more diligent in training and fired up for striving to be the best.
And Javier makes Yuzuru more relax and takes thing with calm head.

Yuzuru Hanyu world 2017 FS Danish commentary

Video credit to tnori.


F: Female commentator

M: Male commentator

__________

M: We start with the gentleman who won the Grand Prix Finals. He was second at Four Continents, won silver at the World Championships last year, world champ and Olympic champ in 2014 and now he’s here. A fifth place, a bit disappointing after the short program.

F: Yeah.

M: Music “Hope and Legacy” by Joe Hisaishi. Yuzuru Hanyu.

F: Choreographed by Shae-lynn Bourne, former ice dancer, who is actually a very exciting choreographer who works with many skaters overseas. And of course specially with skaters from Canada.

F: Here comes the quad - quadruple loop! It was so great! 

M: Fantastic.

F: Super start.

F: That was great - quadruple salchow! He is starting strong.

M: I have to add that Yuzuru Hanyu has the world record 330.43 in comparison to Javier Fernandez that only has 314.93.

(pause)

F: It looks like it’s going smoothly for him - 3Flip.

F: (laughs)

M: That is wild.

F: (still laughing) 4Salchow - 3ToeLoop.  He is putting a lot of pressure on his closest rivals right now. He has decided not to go out without a fight for a medal.

(short pause) And there’s another quad coming, according to plan.

M: Yes! Shut up, what landings.

F: 3Axel- 2ToeLoop.

F: 3Axel- halfloop - 3Salchow

(short pause)

M: He only needs 3Lutz.

F: Here it comes - out of nothing.

M: Ayyy…

F: (laughs)  That is so fantastic to see. This is totally wild. And the hall is totally going crazy and of course, strong representation from Japanese audience. (laughs)  He is just raw.  The wildest I’ve seen him.

M: (laughs) Shut. Up. 

F: This is so great.

M: Oh, this is wild.

F: Yes.  I mean, this is… 

M: Annette, he has a fairly good chance to win the competition, despite his 5th place in the short program: It’s going to be exciting.

F: He has 98.39 points and Javier has 109.5, so there’s a 10 -11 points difference.

M: But Yuzuru Hanyu can easily accumulate 10 points mere in the free skate.

F: Yes, he can.

M: Javier can not afford to put down a wrong foot.

F: And I am sure Brian Orser will do everything he can to keep Javier’s nerves down. He (Javier) must hear the jubilation from the hall.

M: Try reading Brian’s body language.

F: Uhum.

M: I think it’s special. Look at him.

F: Yeah…

M: Is he happy?

F: That is it, isn’t it? His favourite is threatened. One can also say, that if Javier Fernandez trains more with Brian, that they work more together, and Yuzuru primarily is in Japan and comes to Brian… I don’t know…

M: But he’s still a trainer for him.

F: Yeah, but you just don’t have the same relationship together.

M: There are feelings.

F: Yes. Of course.

M: Then again, Yuzuru can just say, “Whatever.”

F: I think he doesn’t give a damn (sorry this is the closest translation).

M: “I will just beat record after record.”

F: Exactly. It’s what counts. It can also be he has Brian as a trainer, like for politics.  They use each other (NOTE: this doesn’t mean anything negative, just points to a symbiotic relationship). 

M: Well, it seems Yuzuru has gotten something out of it, otherwise he wouldn’t be able to skate like this. He has en exceptional psyche (mental fortitude). This is wild.

F: Wild, indeed, I am deeply impressed.

M. Me, too.

F: Brian… (laughing)

M: He looks ready to explode. 

(F translate what Yuzuru and Brian say to each other - about working hard and being calmer)

F: I’m so excited to see what points he gets.

(When the points come up)

F: Wow! This is wild.

M: 223! 223.20! It looks like the total scores for majority of other skaters. No, no, no, no… he beats the world record by four points.

M: I’m speechless.

F: Me, too.

F: I don’t know if anyone can go out and create a program that is good enough. 

M: I’m happy I’m not Spanish and a skater, or a Spanish national champion.

F: Or reigning world champion? 

M: Yes.
