Yuzu dominated Skate Canada SP

milkboys Sports & Activity 2 Comments

Double Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu skated a masterful performance in the men’s short program at Skate Canada to start his Grand Prix season with a bang.

Masses of fans turned out to see their hero skate in Kelowna, British Colombia, and Yuzu did not disappoint, delivering a clean program on Friday evening for a season-high score of 109.60, just a single point shy of his world-leading 110.53 that he skated at Rostelecom Cup last year.

By the time you (all three of you who care about skating ;) are reading this we’ll know how the free skate went and who was crowned the winner of Skate Canada but if nothing goes terribly wrong, Yuzuru should have a good shot at it considering his performance yesterday.

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.
