A Dream Figure Skating School ①

Yuzuru Hanyu, an Olympic champion, performed his exhibition number and held a skating school for kids at Bank of Yokohama Ice Arena in Kanagawa August 16th.

“Hana-ni-nare” was performed as an exhibition number.
In fact, he was scheduled to perform this season’s free program “SEIMEI”, but he changed his performance to “Hana-ni-nare” due to his condition at that day.
His performance “Hana-ni-nare” filled the venue with his gentle and soft atmosphere more than usual, which is one of his original characters.
As a result, his choice was suitable and his performance was brilliant because his aim of the event was to give back to the ice rink where he spent his time after the earthquake.

In kid’s skating school, even though most kids were beginners, they enjoyed skating with their eyes shining because Mr. Hanyu explained easily and give them encouraging words which brought out their positive attitude.
Mr. Hanyu expressed joyful of figure skating while he advised them with good timing, actually showed them a good example and touched each other.
