[140], The 2017–18 season was a turbulent one for Hanyu after an injury he had suffered in November 2017 kept him off the ice for two months and sidelined him from competing for three months in the middle of his preparations for the Olympics. He also competed at the senior level, where he came in sixth. [28] His graduation thesis summarizes how much 3D motion capture technology can be used in figure skating and what the prospects are. In his free skating, Hanyu landed three quadruple jumps: a loop, a Salchow, and a toe loop, but made mistakes on two other jumping passes. That's OK. [51] He finished 4th at the Cup of China,[52] then won the Rostelecom Cup with a new personal best score[53] to qualify for his first senior Grand Prix Final, where he placed fourth. With this result, he qualified for the Grand Prix Final in second place with 28 ranking points.[117][118]. [169] The profit, worth approximately 22 million yen after deducting the total cost of the parade, was donated to a local figure skating federation. However, he singled two other jumps. [237] For Olympic Day 2015, Hanyu appeared in its promotional video as a boxer. [73] Hanyu obtained 178.64 points in the free skating and won the first Olympic gold medal for Japan in men's figure skating event, and only the second for the nation, his following Shizuka Arakawa's gold medal in the women's event in 2006 in Turin. [257], According to NHK, in a survey conducted by Sasakawa Sports Foundation about favorite athletes in Japan publicized in March 2019, Yuzuru Hanyu won the first place.[258]. [27] In April, he and other skaters took part in an ice show to raise money for the victims. 1 figure skaters (since 2001–02 season), Record technical and component scores (J), Historical record scores in figure skating, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Yuzuru_Hanyu&oldid=986958455, Figure skaters at the 2014 Winter Olympics, Figure skaters at the 2018 Winter Olympics, Four Continents Figure Skating Championships medalists, Japanese expatriate sportspeople in Canada, World Figure Skating Championships medalists, World Junior Figure Skating Championships medalists, Recipients of the Medal with Purple Ribbon, Season-end world number one figure skaters, Articles containing potentially dated statements from April 2020, All articles containing potentially dated statements, Articles containing Japanese-language text, Articles lacking reliable references from May 2019, Wikipedia articles with WORLDCATID identifiers, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License. In recognition of his achievements, Hanyu has been awarded numerous accolades, including the People's Honour Award (in 2018)[21] and the Medal of Honour with Purple Ribbon (in 2014 and 2018). He placed first in the free skating with a score of 167.89 and placed first overall with a score of 278.42. [134] Despite this, he was selected to compete at the 2017 Four Continents Championships and 2017 World Championships. [125][126], On April 26, the Japan Skating Federation announced that Hanyu would be taking two months off the ice to heal from injury. He fell five times in the free skating but scored enough to win the silver medal. [50] For the 2011–12 Grand Prix series, he was assigned to the 2011 Cup of China and the 2011 Rostelecom Cup. From the list of historical absolute scores, the top three historical combined scores, four out of the top five historical short program scores, and three out of the top five historical free program scores were scored by Hanyu. He then competed at and won the 2009–10 Junior Grand Prix Final, achieving a new personal best score. He finished second behind Chen in that segment as well, taking the silver medal overall. He was hospitalized for two weeks, and was expected to resume training a month afterward. [72] They finished 5th at the end of the competition. [223] Starting from his 2012–2013 season, his programs were choreographed by others, such as David Wilson,[224] Shae-Lynn Bourne,[225] and Jeffrey Buttle. [191] He also revealed that similar to his preparations for the Olympics, he relied on painkillers before and during the event to make jumping possible. He was the youngest winner of the Olympic men's title since American Dick Button in 1948.
