The Brightest, The Golden one. The diamond that shone unpolished.

The olympics are over but, i was late to the party. Shelly has been going on about this young man on her facebook. and his pictures kept flashing at me way too often. When i found out he was a figure skater, i remembered how much i loved to watch figure skating, and she said a few things that made me wanna go check him out. His face really wasn't something very eyecatching, he's your average Japanese looking young guy, nothing special at the first glance,but i was kind ot taken over by his beautiful costume. I youtubed him and well ended up having a marathon of his skating videos. When i watched the first one that got my eyes, i was absolutelly blown away. His name is, yes, Yuzuru Hanyu, the golden boy of Sochi Olympics. I was taken over by his huge passion and just complite devotion to te performance. So much emotion and expression. I'm not even talking about the technical side. In the video he was 17 i think. 3As quads... i mean it's unbelievable and he nailed them all. Just natural pure talent. But i think the emotional side and all this overflowing passion was what totally took me over. It's increadible.
He's from Sendai, and we all know what happaned with that part of Japan in 2011, the place he used to train was damaged pretty bad, he also has asthma to battle everytime after a heavy performing. Despite of that all, he just throws himself into this.  He falls and falls and falls and just keeps standing up tall and confident and going further, often with a smile on his face.

Interviewer: “After the performance you lifted your arm with your finger and pointed. What did that mean to you?
Yuzuru: “At first I was going to put my fist in the air like YES!!! but I realized this is not my strength alone, there were so many people supporting me so I pointed my finger, showing that I got my strength from the world.”
I don't know, when i watch him perform and just when he's not on ice, he's so pure and real and just into it. He's such a lovelly soul and his words are always just warm and wise. People call him a "prince of ice". He's charming, indeed.
I think i just got tired of the fancy stars and their "inspirational" quotes, their poetic babble while they drive their expensive cars and live in their penthouse apartaments. Yuzuru is just so simple but so special. Frankly he is bigger inspiration than any of the celebrities i have ever looked up to. He is so much younger than i am and i have so much more respect and admiration for him than i have for any musician in my list that i love. I just want to give him a huge hug. I don't have enough words to describe how i feel about this young man. He's just a beautiful human being. He's the real inspiration on life and dreams. So yeah. I am very very glad i ended up checking him out. And thanks Shelly for plastering his face all over her facebook ^^
