anonymous asked:

so I've been reading your blog whole night and it seems like you're both pro-teambroser and pro-teamtutberidze. how do you combine these 2 teams since the values in each team are so different. And I personally feel like team Orser is not really fond of the other team's methods and stuff. Really interested in your opinion 👀

I’m “team let’s try to put out our idea, have a plan, follow it, be a school”.

I don’t think a pefect team/school exists. I think both Orser and Tutberidze have very strong pros and some cons. I do believe they both made (and will make) their mistakes and I do believe that their methods is not holy bible, so it may work with some, it may not work with someone else.

As I said, I like they both have a plan, a philosophy, a way to handle things that’s not “let’s go with the wind”. I do like what they built, a system where they brought in different people, each giving their own bit.
I do appreciate how they managed to create a high level environment that’s more than one person only.

I’m sure they have different ideas, and that’s good too. I’m not a fan of copy-and-paste, but I’m a fan of people with an idea and the goodwill to try and go through with it. And I’m a fan of people who - even from different starting points - keep showing an overall progress of all their skaters that’s up for everybody to see. Teams that take care of actual skating and do try to polish it, one piece at time, instead of just playing the old power game like many others do.

“There’s times when you’re training and you’re doing a horrible training and the person that you’re competing with is doing great, and that changes you. Because it changes you, because you want to be the best.” ― Javier Fernández. 

“When I feel nervous,he [is] usually talking about something funny. So I think I owe what I won to him.“  ―Yuzuru Hanyu.

No matter what people say, this is the reason why I support Yuzuru. He doesn’t choose the easy way to win but looks further ahead and wants to evolve as much as possible. I hope he will bring this mindset and everything he has challenged himself so far into Pyeongchang next year!

Note: A very insightful video about Yuzuru, there are many more interesting parts but I don’t know if anyone has translated this yet, so I only have the video here.

IM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW. IM JUST SO PROUD OF THESE TWO (and of course to their coaches who also worked hard) CONGRATULATIONS 💕


(OKAY SO WHILE YUZU AND JAVI WERE HUGGING, IF YOU LISTEN VERY VERY CLOSELY, YOU CAN HEAR JAVI SAY “I told you last year. Right, remember? You worked hard, you can get it. Alright?” THEIR FRIENDSHIP IS SO PURE LET ME FIND MY OWN JAVI)
