So our new hero and now King of ice Yuzu Hanyu has returned to the ice rink to thrill his fans, many of which he seems to have picked up after a sensational skating season where we saw him race away winning all the titles that mattered. Those of course being the winner of The Grand Prix Series 2013/14, the Gold medal winner at the Sochi Winter Olympic Games, and of course winner at the recent World Championships of Ice Skating in Japan.
Yuzu was recently back on the ice just a couple of weeks ago in Sapporo at The Stars On Ice 2014 Show. It's all part of a special exhibition tour where the skaters can let their hair down and have a good time while putting on some great shows for skating fans. It's just a shame though that the tour doesn't come to London as there's a few more shows still to come.
Below is a video of Yuzu performing in Sapporo in what is a really beautiful and emotional performance.
I've been reading on a couple of sites the subject of why Yuzu appears to have no social network page, something like a Facebook page or even a twitter page so as to keep fans up to date with all his latest news. It does seem strange when most skaters have their various sites and social network pages. And we know how other sports persons as well as most celebrities simply cant live without a twitter or facebook. So it is quite a bold move on the part of Yuzu.
Would it be because he hasn't yet grasped the written English language. Or is he basically just a very private person? We know that he often gets a bit tired of the media's intrusions, specially when the question is 'Have you got a girlfriend?"
