ISU Challenger Series 2018/19 - Autumn Classic, Oakville, ON - 20-22 Sept.

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

ISU Challenger Series 2018/19 - Autumn Classic, Oakville, ON - 20-22 Sept.

Expect a full house at this event! The entries: http://www.isuresults.com/events/fsevent03111605.htm

Among the entries are Evgenia Medvedeva and Yuzuru Hanyu who, of course, train at the Cricket Club. It will also mark the return to competition of Weaver & Poje.

Medvedeva's programs for this year were revealed about a month ago:
SP: Orange Colored Sky, by Natalie Cole
LP: Yo Yo Ma 'Mumuki', Libertango

Weaver & Poje's programs (as revealed at this week's Skate Canada High Performance Camp):
RD: Libertango
FD: “SOS D’Un Terrien,” as a tribute to Denis Ten

Yuzu has now revealed his program music for this year: SP: “Otonal” (previously skated to by one of his idols, Johnny Weir); FP: “Origin” (an arrangement of the “Tribute to Ninjinsky” program by another of his idols, Evgeni Plushenko).

More on his FP from: https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2018 ... ctice.html
Yuzuru Hanyu said Thursday he wants to return to his figure skating roots as the two-time Olympic champion previewed "Origin," his free program for the upcoming season.

"The beginning of my skating life, the origin -- I want to skate while feeling like I did when I first began," Hanyu said in a practice at his training base in Toronto.

Hanyu showed off three types of quadruple jumps for the media -- a toe loop, a Salchow and a loop -- as the 23-year-old ramps up his efforts to become the first figure skater to successfully land a quadruple axel in competition.

Although he hasn't landed the 4-1/2 turn jump yet, the Japanese star appeared fully recovered from the right ankle injury he suffered in training last November.

"I'm skating now while thinking about how to strengthen my skating and get better," Hanyu said.

"Origin" features songs used in routines by Russian legend Evgeni Plushenko and American Johnny Weir, skaters Hanyu admires. He said he chose the music in order to "get back to enjoying skating, to slide while feeling like I'm doing it for myself."

Hanyu won his second consecutive gold medal at the Pyeongchang Olympics in South Korea earlier this year after becoming the first Japanese male skater to win gold at the 2014 Sochi Games in Russia.

In July, he became the first figure skater and youngest individual recipient of the People's Honor Award in Japan.

Since the event is in the EDT zone, Danielle Earl didn't need to provide the time differences for us :)
