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!
Since my last post, I decided to set up a Sportymags Twitter account called @RealSportymags and a Sportymags Youtube account. This way I can share more photos and some precious videos that I have taken over my journey with Yuzu.
This is my last photo post from 2017 Worlds Helsinki. It is from Worlds Gala afternoon! After a long week of practices and competition, we could all finally sit back and relax. What a memorable experience this week was. The results were perfect!!
Here is Mischa in tie-dye heaven.
An Asian cowboy. Boyang had a lot of fun during this program, as did the fans. Loved this gala performance.
Jason sure provides for a lot of photo ops in his gala number.
Yuzu’s hydroblading. It does not get old.
This photo is a bit blurry because, well, have you ever tried to photograph Yuzu doing a scratch spin?? It’s impossible for me, he is spinning so fast!! We don’t get to see Yuzu doing pure scratch spins that often so this was a nice rare sight.
Sheepish Yuzu, so adorable!!
I am in love with this photo. I hope it shows as crispy clear on wordpress as it does on my computer. I don’t recall what Yuzu was doing for this wipeout compared to the one from the quad/quad and the triple axel, but it’s adorable nonetheless.
Now, this is another priceless shot!! Everyone was slowly trying to leave the ice after the gala was over. Because I was still tracking Yuzu through my camera, I did not see that Evgenia took off down the rink and was attempting to start a jump battle. Suddenly she came into my viewfinder, and Yuzu saw her too. The expression on his face is SOOO Yuzu, the longing to jump more!! He looks like a kid in a candy store!!! Yuzu then got his wish, to try his quad / quad jump combo. I’m sure this was like Christmas to him! Another truly priceless moment.
The result of the quad / quad attempt. It was so cute, you had to laugh with him.
Mischa to the rescue.
Results of the last minute triple axel attempt from almost a standstill.
This was Yuzu’s reaction after he missed the triple axel redemption attempt.
And, that’s it for this World Championships folks!!

Go Yuzu Go!!! Doki Doki!!
