Yuzuru Hanyu GALA WC 2016 (Czech commentary + English & Japanase subtitles)


[about previous skaters, Yuzu part starts at 0:08] Although USA has won 2 silver medals, Yuzuru Hanyu got the chance to skate as the last of all the silver medalists. [Because] he’s simply a bigger figure skating star. Music by the Japanese pianist Yasunobu Matsuo called ‘Requiem of Heaven and Earth’. Yuzuru Hanyu was the star of the SP in which he almost broke his own World record. He got 17 tens [in PCS] for his amazing skate. But he didn’t manage to skate cleanly in the FS and fell to 2nd place. 5 Japanese skaters finished in top 10 in Men’s and Ladies category but only 1 of them was able to win a medal – the silver one. In this aspect, it’s a bit of a regression or rather … some indication that Japan is once again looking for skaters capable of winning medals. [They need] the same types as Yuzuru Hanyu is. Among the wide range of all Japanese skaters, he’s probably the only one right now [capable of winning]. Hanyu is still considered to be a big favourite of this Olympic cycle and especially a big rival of Javier Fernandez. Those two are doing great skating battles.
