Grandpa Zhang is said to want to carry on until Beijing 2022. Fernandez and Hanyu are the most interesting cases, since they have won the last 4 worlds. In his interviews he doesn't exactly give the impression of wanting to skate for long. I have skated all my life and I wouldn't know what else to do"Boyang will aim at 2022 Olympics in China Obviously if their bodies survive all the quads I think Shoma is adorable - and doesn't seem as big-headed as the others. Something about him looks - well, less Japanese than usual.If they retire, there would be a big vacuum at the top. Some interviews seemed to suggest his aim was to get Gold at Olympics and then retire. Maybe he's part Anglo or Russian or something else. Wasn't our evangelical loon Scotty Hamilton about the same size?The move is more popular with female skaters, as it requires a great amount of flexibility to pull it off. Here are my thoughts about Shoma's less than pleasing look on the ice: 5'2 is pretty damn short for a man, so how one chooses his clothing style is incredibly important.Hanyu’s spins are so iconic that fans have even named one move the “Hanyu spin.”I think Hanyu looks more elegant and precise than Fernandez, who looks kind of bulky or blokey or something - and a bit dorky last night but that was apparently by design, playing a clown or something to the music. The bolero jackets he seems partial to are cutting him in half and accentuating his bubble butt.I'm not excited by the prospect of Shoma Uno dominating in their absence.2019 World Championships will be held in Japan. I have an acquaintance from Spain and get the idea that it isn't as gay-friendly as northern/western Europe.At least if you grow up in a traditional family outside the big cities. I read Javi's dad was an airplane mechanic and his mother was a mail carrier. too distracted taking photos of half naked Kazakh women that and having weirdly shaped feet that made boot fitting very difficult and prone to injury R73 FWIW, when I saw Shoma last night, my first thought was "I think he may be a Japanese/American mixture.
Johnny mentioned Shoma being a "little guy" and having trouble filling up the ice - unlike Hanyu.
Shoma was my least favorite skater in the final group. Bringing this over from last thread: Practices at main rink on 16 February (via jackie wang)Hanyu: 3A, 2T, 4T(hangs on), 4S, runthru (3S(step), 3A, 4T3T), 3S(step), 2S, 4S, 1(?
Adam and Javi, who may be the same height as Shoma , know how to dress to flatter their height.
However, Ando clearly doesn’t care about societal expectations — she’s a mom AND she’s a legendary figure skater. Apparently, all of the quads are leading to splatfests.
I'm not sure whether this is better or worse than the women who can't seem to progress beyond a (very) rare triple axel.
