Some people were a bit upset that I posted Shoma Uno the other day instead of Yuzuru Hanyu so here you go, one of his best performances in all its glory!
Chen Aisen is not only a cutie, he’s also a world class diver. This jump got him the gold medal at the Olympic Games in Rio.
Update: The original video was taken down; I replaced it with one from NBC that should stay up longer but sadly isn’t quite as good as the first one, instead of focusing on his last dive and his reaction (not to mention his hot body) after, it shows all dives he made in the finals cut together which makes any of them look a bit less impressive. The last one is the dive the original video was about.
The world of figure skating is a happy place for Japanese Bishōnen right now. While Yuzuru Hanyu is making it more than clear that he is determined to win the World Figure Skating Championships in Boston right now, another great talent is skating its way into the hearts of the fans…
Shoma Uno might still look somewhat small next to Hanyu and his style is not yet as refined but he’s not only visibly excited to be on the ice, he’s also quite exciting to watch as you can see in the videos below.
Then these Japanese high-school boys would like to have a word with you ;)
Sweet, sweet babyface and prince on ice Yuzuru Hanyu had quite the year. But doesn’t he always? He’s still being the cutest, he’s still breaking world records left and right and that the only two people who seem to be able to–somewhat–keep up with his pace are his closest friends doesn’t hurt the mood either.
Alex hittar hobbyn is a show on Swedish TV in which the host Alexander Hermansson is trying out a bunch of different hobbies in every episode. The one linked below was particularity worth watching because he goes diving and as you’ll notice… Alex is quite the looker.
Or as the Destroyer blog put it: “Mother Swedish, father Japanese, son Greek – as in Greek god.”
Why does visibility in sports matter? Why is it important that people in professional sports, idols to many kids and adults, don’t have to hide who they are? Here’s why:
When 12-year-old Braeden Lange was being bullied by classmates after coming out to his friends and family this spring, he was so distraught he considered suicide.
Desperate to help, his father started scouring the internet for resources, and stumbled across a decade-old TV feature of out former Dartmouth College lacrosse goalie Andrew Goldstein, the first openly gay male athlete to play in any American professional sport league.
A simple email from Lange’s father to Goldstein, now a doctor and medical researcher in Los Angeles, sparked the conversation that eventually created Philadelphia’s first Courage Game, a lacrosse contest intended to encourage and support gay youth while promoting equality.

There’s some weird stuff on YouTube…
Coming from the region of Japan that was hit the hardest by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami and battling asthma the raw emotion and power he packs will give you chills… or the heat.
