Biography

Yuzuru HANYU

All eyes may be on Japan’s summer athletes as Tokyo 2020 dawns, but there’s another Olympics in Asia a couple of years later, and – in Japan – Hanyu is the man that the fans want to see in Beijing 2022.

Already a two-time Olympic champion, a two time World Champion, and four time Grand Prix final champion, the figure skater is perhaps his country’s finest ever ice athlete – and regarded by many as the best figure skater in history.

He has broken an extraordinary 18 world scoring records, and still holds the current world record for the short program. He’s the first man ever to break the 100 point mark in short program, the first to gain 200 points in free skating, and the first to get a combined total of 300.

He’s also the first Asian skater to win an Olympic gold, a feat he achieved aged just 19 at the Sochi 2019 Olympic Winter Games. This made him the youngest winner of the title since 1948. Hanyu then followed up that amazing performance with a gold at PyeongChang 2018.
