My Favourite Men Figure Skaters (Quick Update – August 23, 2013)

Mini Post Here!

Exciting news this past week for two of my favourite men šŸ™‚

Patrick Chan debut his new freeskate to Four Seasons (Vivaldi) this past weekend at Thornhill. Technical issues aside, I absolutely love this program. He’s promoting the program as his ‘greatest hits’ and a dedication to his past coach Osborne Colson (http://www.skatecanada.ca/AboutUs/NewsDetails/tabid/2157/sni%5B2797%5D/2806/language/en-US/Default.aspx)

Yuzuru Hanyu hasn’t debuted his freeskate yet but it was announced it’ll be to Romeo & Juliet (Nino Rota). This just might be my favourite skating music. I’m extremely excited for this programs debut.

Both of these music choices are not original and have been used multiple times in the past, even just on recent Olympic programs. Maybe these skaters are playing it safe by using beloved music. Whatever the reason, I love both of these music choices and cannot wait to see both of them skated to their potential! These are two very talented skaters and I can’t wait to see these programs win them Olympic medals.

Also of note, both of these men will be keeping their world recording breaking short programs from last season.

I can’t wait for the season to begin!
