I feel like a lot of people like him for the wrong reasons...

 

 

Watching the olympics was surprisingly fun. He's an amazing skater and I hope to see him continue to do great things.

I just finished catching up with olympic events after I missed a week of it due to school, and this guy was amazing.

I was rooting for Pat because you know, Canada ftw but Yuzuru's program was really great.

 

If people are curious as to how Yuzuru was scored over Patrick, this article goes in depth with scoring mechanisms and playback gifs:

My question is - why does that random Pooh bear show up everywhere?!

It's from an annual event(concert?) called THE ICE. This particular gif came from the one that took place in Osaka, 2012.

Hanyu is one of the few skaters who skate so gracefully and it´s like he´s doing magic on ice. Whenever I see him I really get mesmerized by his movement and the emotion he showcase.
