You better believe that 40 years from now Yuzu’s going to show all his baby grandkids highlights and magazines from his glory days of figure skating.
“See that kids? That was your grandpa when he broke the record at GPF 2015…like a boss.”
“This? World record certificates for breaking total combined score, landing the first quad loop, and probably the first quad axel in competition.”
“4 peat GPF champion, Olympic Champion, World Champion, Junior World Champion, heh easy pEASY.”
“lol I signed Rafael Arutunia’s - the coach of Nathan Chen, yeah that guy - magazine picture right here.”
*brings out the treasure chest of medals upon medals and trophies the size of lamps* …FAMILY HEIRLOOMS
“…Here’s a classic you kids have to watch. It’s called Winnie the Pooh. If you guys like it I’ll buy plushies for you just like mine years ago.”
I firmly believe that at the ripe old age of 62 he’ll still occasionally head to the rink, if not for old times and nostalgia’s sake but to have fun with his children and grandchildren. I also think that Yuzuru Hanyu is one who will impart great advice and wisdom to younger generations of skaters.
This post started as a joke but now has made me sad.
