The Men’s event shapes up as an exciting battle between the World’s leading skaters. Two-time Olympic Champion Yuzuru Hanyu (JPN) is looking at a third World title on home ice. The Japanese star had to sit out the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final and National Championships earlier this season as he recovered from an ankle injury. Nevertheless, Hanyu tops the season’s best list with 297.12 points. He has to expect tough competition coming from defending World Champion Nathan Chen (USA) and Olympic and World silver medalist Shoma Uno (JPN). Uno is currently ranked number one in the World and recently won the ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships, setting a season’s best of 289.12 points. Chen struck gold at the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final and comes with a season’s best of 282.42 points to Japan. *source ISU-report:
“GOLD Yuzuru Hanyu JPN – Is he back? And how back is he? Knowing how he operates, he’s not the type of skater who goes into a competition as important as this one unprepared.”
Defending World Champion Nathan Chen (USA) dominated in the Men’s Short Program as the ISU World Figure Skating Championships continued Thursday in Saitama (JPN). Teammate Jason Brown (USA) came second while two-time Olympic Champion Yuzuru Hanyu (JPN) is currently ranked third.
