Yuzuru Hanyu’s reaction to his FS at Worlds 2013 [x]
Way to pull yourself up, and fight until the very end! It’s great that you were able to end your season on such a high note, and we are all so, so proud of you. :)
I’m just not interested in sports that don’t end with hysterical crying.
Now, he shares Orser’s expertise during training with Hanyu.
So far, so good,” Orser said. “They train well together, they support each other. When you have a teammate that’s going through the same stress, it takes away some of the pressure. You’re not the only one in this boat. At least they don’t have meltdowns the same days. Some days, he (Fernandez) will have a meltdown and Yuzuru will help him through it, and vice versa.
“It’s when everyone melts on the same day, it’s like, ‘Oh, God’ … It’s hard. These guys are a real treat to work with.”
It would be something if one of his skaters did something really special this week.
This year, after all, is the 25th anniversary of the famous Battle of the Brians at the Calgary Olympics. Orser recently received a well-intentioned invitation to go down to Florida and re-visit the bitter moment in which he finished in second to his American rival Boitano.
“I didn’t hear anything from Boitano but I got invited … come help celebrate Brian’s 25th anniversary of his gold medal win — I might give that a miss,” Orser said with a big laugh. “I thought, ‘Are you serious? Are you really sending me an invitation?’ “
He’s not the party pooper type.
But this week, he could assist in raining on one king’s parade.
Haha Orser (:
