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.
Soooo I’m still not fully rotating them, but I am literally and quite all of a sudden able to land them on one foot. I must have done 25 attempts this Sunday and between attempt 9 and 10 suddenly I was landing neatly forward on one foot and doing a 3-turn to finish backward for a proper landing position.
For probably the last 4 to 6 months I’ve been landing squarely on two feet every time. No idea what changed between one attempt and the other. I wasn’t even trying to land on one foot! I just wanted more rotation.
So. Sudden improvement in technique! I was so excited.
This week I’m going to practice very hard on off ice jump rotations, and core strength building exercises to see if I can get up to 3/4 turn on one foot so that maybe by May, my 3 year anniversary of skating, I MIGHT just land a proper loop.
Fingers crossed, y’all.
