My favorite anime. I really like to see Yuuri Katsuki Dancing skating. I hope YOI Season 2.

Nathan Chen won the US Figure Skating Championship last night with a total score of 315.23, forty points ahead of his closest competitor. Whether that will be enough to compete with Japan's Hanyu Yuzuru is anyone's guess. For now, my money is on Hanyu.

On the women's side, the increased emphasis on athleticism over style has not served American skaters well, leaving them behind women from Russia, Japan, and South Korea.

Quote:
[A]s the sport has grown more technically demanding, female skaters from the United States have largely become sideline performers in a sport they once dominated.

The reasons include what [Tara] Lipinski views as a failure by American officials to teach young skaters to maximize points in the current scoring system. Among other things, the system awards a 10 percent bonus for jumps performed in the second half of routines, prizing technical mastery on tired legs.

[Ashley] Wagner sees a cultural hesitancy in the United States, compared with Russia, to train young girls to achieve great early success at the risk of injury and burnout in their teenage years.
Wagner, who won bronze in 2014, finished fourth at the US Championships and will not be heading to Pyeong-chang. The outspoken skater told reporters she was "furious" at the decision of the judges.

By the way, I'm pretty sure an anime song played during Hanyu's performance last spring, but I can't place it. It starts just before the three-minute mark. Any ideas?
