In case you didn’t hear it yet, our little ice jewel Yuzuru Hanyu proved that he is a golden boy once again and won the 2014 World Figure Skating Championships in his home country! You can see a video of his free program here but while it was an amazing performance I’d like to use this opportunity to show you another program he did a while ago just because he was so damn flirty…
Yuzuru Hanyu, 19-year-old figure skating wunderkind and officially milkboys-approved cutie pie stunned the sports world today at the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi by delivering a fantastic program that earned him a new world record and made him the first man to get more than 100 points for his short program! You don’t want to miss this…
Japanese figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu carries a Winnie the Pooh tissue box cozy around at every competition as a good luck charm.
In an interview, his coach Brian Orser said that he would see Hanyu at competitions before Hanyu made the switch to train with Orser in Toronto. Orser knew he was immensely talented but always thought it was odd how he carried a Winnie the pooh tissue box around. "I always thought he was that weird kid with the Winnie the pooh doll. Now I’m that kid’s coach…and I have to carry it," said Orser.
