Winter Olympics: Yuzuru Hanyu wins men's figure skating gold again

18 February 2018

Remarkable journey For Fernandez, it was the flawless way to end his last Olympics, claiming Spain's first ever figure skating medal. With a flawless landing, naturally.

Japan's Yuzuru Hanyu became the first figure skater in 66 years to retain his Olympic title after a thrilling finale to the men's competition at the Gangneung Ice Arena on Saturday. "Immediately happy that I did what I did, and then kind of upset that I did what I did with such a bad short program and it won't balance out". "I just did my best today".

Hanyu was visibly moved by his latest triumph in a remarkable journey from the day in 2011 he had to fled a Sendai ice rink when a devastating quake hit Japan.

Spain's Javier Fernandez, who also performed very well in the strong short program, won the bronze medal.

But just as Putin blocked Israel's bombing campaign in Syria, he holds a similar trump card in NY : a Security Council veto. This requires even more precision bombing of mainly Iranian targets in Syria as well as weapons, vehicles, and buildings.

Hanyu later congratulated Fernandez and told him he wished both of them could have won. He proved his talent with a gold medal in Sochi 2014.

His countryman Shoma Uno was second behind a gutsy two days of quad-filled skating that involved just one fall. "I did what I meant to do".

Thousands of miniature Japanese flags featuring the rising sun waved in the stands to greet Hanyu when he got onto the ice.

It was not a ideal routine, however, as Hanyu stumbled and almost fell on one jump, and barely held his feet on another.

Pence said he did not greet the delegation given that North Korea's was "the most tyrannical and oppressive regime on the planet". Mr Pence came face to face with Ms Kim at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics, but they did not interact.

As always, he left the ice to a swarm of cascading Winnie The Pooh dolls flooding the ice.

Fernandez, skating to "Man of La Mancha", was a worthy medalist, finishing just 1.66 points behind Uno. "I can find one word and that is happy", the 23-year-old, who also became the 1,000th gold medal victor in the history of Winter Olympics, added. "I think that really added a lot of pressure to me". (That's right: SIX.) He had the highest score of the free skating event (215.08) but ultimately did not medal because of his disastrous performance in Thursday's short program. No matter. He hit every element of a highly hard program with precision and grace. At this point I have literally nothing to lose.

"Ideally, I want 40 seconds on someone who is really fast on his skis", Watabe said. Teammates Vincent Zhou and Adam Rippon placed sixth and 10th, respectively.

"It's been such a wild ride over my short 17 years", Zhou said.

If that happens, Rounds said, "We'll allow the president to determine whether or not it moves in the direction that he wants". The rules of the debate are simple: whoever can get 60 votes on their proposal, wins.

As everyone's favorite honey-loving, red-shirted bear famously said, "The smallest things take up the most room in your heart". "We're hitting the limits of figure skating right now". The Canadian landed a handsome opening quad toe-triple toe, but the doubled his second quad toe attempt and made a series of small errors from there: doubling an intended triple loop, putting a hand down on a triple axel, and even a trip in the footwork sequence. "A lot of people were watching, even if it was in the middle of the night".
