Since everyone is doing intro post to their favorite skaters, what the hell. Might as well do one of my own. Many of my favorites already have introductions (and much better than this) but there is one which I haven’t found and I really wanted to do: Javier Fernandez. Many people just know him because he’s Yuzuru Hanyu’s training partner, but this guy here has an awesome story of his own.
Warning: Very, VERY, long post. Read at your own risk.

GORILLAZ’ NOODLE MEETS PANASONIC JAGUAR RACING ENGINEER CHARANYA RAVI - TWO WOMEN, TWO JOURNEYS, ONE GOAL
Two women, two journeys, one goal. Two youngsters who grew up loving music and then, in all the best ways, were diverted on to a new path, and new, exciting futures.
