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!

Yuzuru Hanyu: Impeccable Manners!

This is a Yuzu appreciation post focusing on his nature to help others;  a trait that endears him to so many.

The first example of Yuzu being so kind and helpful is also the most well known example. After the competition (Finlandia) was over, Yuzu stayed on the ice to help fill in the holes in the ice.

    Oh, yes! Yuzu is a nice & giving person. Famous people who met Yuzu in person all say that he is very humble. Also, people who have known Yuzu and his parents for years say they are always polite and humble, even after Yuzu became olympic champion. That’s one of the reasons why I think he deserves gold. He even greets the skate rink and says “thank you”.

    When I see these pictures, they give me the feeling there’s still some hope for this world. A true sportsman on an off the ice and an inspiration to all of us. Let’s just pray that he’ll never change. Thank you very much for these impressions!

    Just as a small taste of the upcoming Worlds here’s a short best-of-clip about Yuzuru. Hope you like it ^^
