A surprise message to Yuzuru Hanyu from his hero, Evgeni Plushenko. [x]
oh god i can’t deal with this
THE CIRCLE OF LIFE
Mao Asada: First woman to land eight triple jumps and one of each type of jump, including a triple axel, in a free skate || 2014 Olympics
Honestly, even though some fangirls are only supportive of him because of his looks, the people in Japan really took his win to heart.
Yuzuru Hanyu was not a typical Japanese Olympian. He was an inspiration and hope because he came from Sendai, an area close to the epicenter of the March 2011 earthquake that struck.
He not only suffered like the rest of Japan, he was on the verge of giving up his dream of figure skating until Japan gave him enough funding to head to Toronto to train (because his usual skating rink was destroyed by the earthquake).
When Hanyu won, it was a lesson that anything can happen if one tries enough. Hanyu was going to give up his dream, yet he pushed on with the support of others, ultimately winning gold and breaking the 100 point barrier in a short event.
Japan welcomes him back and encourages others to not forget their dreams, regardless of the situation. And now Hanyu even said that he will make use of himself in his hometown to continue helping with the recovery from the earthquake.

Yuzuru Hanyu makes history by becoming the first Japanese man to win gold in the Men’s Singles and by being the youngest to win since 1948.

Yuzuru Hanyu for Team Japan Figure Skating Team aka Sassiest Skater Ever [x]
dammit I don’t want blog pics of ice skating I want actual video of the Winter Olympics figure skaters.
If you’re ever feeling unproductive just remember that the logo for the 2012 Olympics cost $600,000 and took two years to finish.
I still don’t understand why they didn’t use this one
It says London but there is also a secret 2012 in it
I like the second one way better.
oh my god why the hell didn’t we use the second one
