Olympic Theory

Okay so everyone basically knows that Victor has definitely gone to the Olympics but no one talks about the possibility that Yuuri has.

1. Yuri is considered Japan’s best skater

In the anime, Japan has believed this since at least the 2015-16 season. Please consider that 2 Seasons prior would have been the year for the 2014 winter. It’s reasonable that Yuuri would have been considered Japan’s best in 2014 because it’s not likely for skaters scores to vary too much between seasons. [Excluding Viktor Nikiforov & Yuzuru Hanyu who have the ability to score 35+ points above the next skater because they are considered out-liars]

Looking at the scores from Yuri on ice, the competition scores tended to vary by 10-ish points overall from competition. So likely they also all had lower scores 2 seasons ago, if they were competing, because of natural progression. [Unless your an out-liar]

  • They all faced a commons area about the size of a soccer field, dotted with Greek statues, fountains, flower beds, and a couple of basketball hoops (which were more my speed). -The Lightning Thief
