On the 23rd, before the world championship of figure skating that starts in Sweden, official practice was held at the venue link, and the men's single Yuzuru Hanyu won the championship for the first time in four years, such as deciding consecutive jumps from quadruple. I asked him how he was doing.
The World Figure Skating Championships, which will open in Stockholm, Sweden on the 24th, will be held for the first time in two years because last year's tournament was canceled due to the influence of the new coronavirus.
This year's tournament will be held unattended and will take place in the Beijing Olympics next year.
Hanyu attended the official practice on the 23rd, following the previous day, and confirmed the choreography by playing the up-tempo song of the short program, and decided the continuous jump from the quadruple one after another, aiming for the first victory in four years. I was told how good it was.
In addition, Shoma Uno made adjustments centered on quadruple jumps, although there were occasional scenes where icing failed.
The men's singles short program will take place on the 25th.
On the other hand, in the women's singles where the short program will be held on the 24th, Rika Kihira landed a successful quadruple jump at the All Japan Championship last December, and in the practice of playing the short program song, she turned sideways with one hand. I carefully checked the slippage, such as showing off.
