Hey sports fans!! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am a self admitted “rink rat” so a lot of this blog will be about figure skating and hockey, however as an ex-figure skater, ex-varsity athlete and a sports fan in general, I usually have thoughts and opinions about alot of different sports I follow, so visit often!
I finally had some time to look through the pictures that I took of Yuzu during the 2016 Worlds in Boston. I decided to do a series of blog entries with photos from each of Yuzu’s on ice sessions. Here are photos taken by me from Day 1, practice #1. (I have not altered the photos in any way yet (lighting, sharpening etc).
Yuzu actually carried Pooh onto the ice and then placed him on the boards. I posted a picture of this in an earlier blog entry in case you missed it. I have never seen him do this, and it was truly adorable when he bent down and had Pooh touch the ice too!
Here is Yuzu getting Pooh ready for the 1st practice session at Worlds! He handles him so gently!!
A little pat on Pooh’s head, and afterwards he even squeezed Pooh ear. Too adorable for words.
This is Yuzu in flight doing a quad toe. Love his straight position in the air, and how tight his legs are together.
Yuzu preparing to do his Seimei program run through. Pooh is ready too!
Yuzu just casually skating around before setting up for his next element. For this practice I was sitting in the section by the entrance to the ice. It was a bit crowded so I moved on Day 2.
Yuzu coming towards me from the opposite direction. Just stunning.
This was taken towards the end of practice. I love his quirky facial expression in this photo.
Yuzu getting his warm up jacket on, ready for cool down. The practice time went by way too quickly!
First practice done!! Always good to see a smile on his face! So adorable!!
I know the pictures are a bit dark and can probably be fixed with a bit of photo editing magic, which I still have yet to learn. I will also be working on improving my photography at the next competition, whether it will be Autumn Classic or Skate Canada!!
Next up – 2nd practice session. Stay tuned!
Go Yuzu Go!!! Doki Doki!!
