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!
2017 World Figure Skating Championships Men’s Event. The premiere event of the this years’ Championships. All fans from around the world eagerly anticipated the last flight of men to come out for their short program, even these cute little guys I spotted watching from the front row:
Everyone remembers this special moment during Let’s Go Crazy right? If you didn’t see it, then you probably heard it, the sound of 10,000+ fans screaming when Yuzu flashed by us, egging us on to Get Crazy about the program!
Well, that’s me in the red, behind the camera, taking the photo! I took this screen shot from the little video posted on twitter (thanks to @Irene7minutes for posting this!) I had a great angle on this.
Everyone that went to Worlds probably has their own special Worlds moment. A moment that stands out brilliantly in your mind, etched forever in our memories. Yuzu’s moment was probably the precise second the music to Hope and Legacy ended.
As a rookie photographer, my Worlds moment was “Holy Beep, did I get that shot????” Yuzu was coming at us so fast and I had that momentary panic wondering if I was zoomed in too close and not going to get a clear shot of it! The hardest part was that I could not check it until Yuzu was done his program, received his marks and had left the Kiss & Cry area. Once Yuzu went behind the scenes, I then frantically searched and found this on my camera – thank you skating and photography gods!!
Here is my Worlds special moment!! Ok, I have a few more, but this is one of my absolute favorite moments!
More Yuzu and mens photos to come….
Go Yuzu Go!!! Doki Doki!!
