If you’re ever doubting if you can achieve something, keep in mind that Yuzuru Hanyu has asthma and an injured ankle and still managed this:

He “only” ended up in 2nd place behind Nathan Chen due to a small mistake during one jump but gosh dang, the magic was as palpable as always. Don’t miss his gala skate either. Shoma had a pretty rough day but considering his current hip and knee problems his 4th place is still very respectable.

He opened with a nice quad flip, before hitting a quad toe loop/double toe loop combination and a triple axel. His spins and steps were exquisite as were his line and edge. The result puts 21-year-old halfway to his third straight Japan title. Read on…
