nathan chen is only 17 and he was the first to ever land five clean quads in a free skate - please watch this, his skating is truly awe inspiring 

You know

Everyone is talking about how Yuri’s dance moves at the banquet are so similar to his Eros routine but let’s not forget that it was Victor who choreographed that skate. Victor who had already been skating those moves before he had even been Yuri’s coach.

When Yurio first shows up in Hatsetsu he walks in to see Victor skating the routine that he’d been planing to do that year and if you watch you’ll realize that it’s actually Eros.

VICTOR- FIVE-TIME-NATIONAL-CHAMPION- NIKIFOROV WAS SO INSPIRED AND IN LOVE WITH A DRUNK YURI THAT HE WAS CHOREOGRAPHING A ROUTINE FOR HIMSELF BASED ON THE DUDE’S DANCING.

FUXK ME.

til hamingju með afmælið ísland!

So when Yuri!!! on Ice first aired, we all called Viktor a Level 100 Mewtwo because he can land four (different) quads in his free skate.

Now Nathan Chen has just recently become the first skater in history to land five quads in US Nationals. Does this mean when we get YOI Season 2, there will be Viktor/Yuuri landing 5-6 quads? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

A wonderful send-off for the man who made colour sing from the canvas - Howard Hodgkin, National Portrait Gallery, review
The fact that Howard Hodgkin never seemed an obvious contender, during his lifetime, for the role of Britain’s “greatest” or “best loved” artist may be down to the fact that his work appears completely abstract.

The Final Five gymnastics team just hung out with Barack and Michelle Obama and it was incredible

The Final Five are national treasures. They’re basically a collection of perfect, perfectly happy humans. And who wouldn’t be, especially after turning in a hyper-dominant performance in Rio. They performed another leg of their victory lap Thursday when they took over the official White House Instagram.
