Here's what Yuzuru Hanyu does with all those Winnie the Pooh bears

Former Olympic figure skaters can't stop gushing about Nathan Chen's unprecedented six-quad routine in Pyeongchang

"I always do this at all the competitions; I will present them to the local community in Pyeongchang and Gangneung", Hanyu said through an interpreter.

"To come away from this Olympic Games to skate three clean programs in the midst of what seems like a lot going on, and a top-10 finish in the individual event and a bronze medal [in the team event], I think this is sort of like a dream Olympic Games for me", Rippon told the press later that day. Despite two technical bobbles, with a step out on another quad toe and a shaky landing on his final triple lutz, Hanyu was determined to hang on to every landing.

Yuzuru Hanyu would like to thank his ankle. By defending his gold medal in PyeongChang, tallying 317.85 total points. Spain's Javier Fernandez was just behind in third.

Hanyu was visibly moved by his latest triumph in a remarkable journey from the day in 2011 he had to flee a Sendai ice rink when a devastating natural disaster hit Japan. "My tears were from my heart".

"I'm happy I committed to all my jumps", he said, "and yeah, happy that I gave it my all".

Chen had blown his chances of Olympic glory with a 17th placing in the short program, leaving him almost 30 points behind the leader, Hanyu.

Indian bank hit by $1.8bn fraud case
He said Nirav Modi was not part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's delegation that visited World Economic Forum in Davos. The ED has registered a PMLA case against them and others based on a CBI FIR which was the result of a PNB complaint.

The 23-year-old finished 29th in the short program at the last Winter Olympics, and failed to get through to perform his free skating routine. Adam Rippon was 10th.

Hanyu joins Sweden's Gillis Grafstrom (1920, 1924, 1928), Austria's Karl Schafer (1932 and 1936) and the USA's Dick Button (1948 and 1952) as the only men to win successive Olympic gold medals in this event.

"I knew which level of performance I performed", he said through a translator. "But I am here".

"Honestly, I wasn't nervous at all", the 18-year-old told reporters after his performance, saying that doing so badly led to his decision to add another quad to his program.

The skater said Saturday that his injuries were worse than he thought, casting so much doubt. "I want to show the results of the efforts (on Saturday)".

Performing to the soundtrack "Seimei", Hanyu twice saved jumps without setting a hand on the ice.

Laughing, the minister's wife added, "I'm Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things". Omarosa made her comments during an episode of CBS' " Celebrity Big Brother " Monday evening.

As always, Hanyu skated to raucous support from the crowd, with thousands of Japanese flags filling the stands.

Ski jumper Yukio Kasaya was the first Japanese to win a gold medal at the 1972 Winter Games in Sapporo, Japan.

According to the report, the first medal of the winter Games was the American speed skater Charles Gutro who won the 500 meters at the Olympics in Chamonix on 26 January 1924.

He said, "Definitely, there was a lot about redemption".

Coach Brian Orser met Hanyu as he left the ice after his strong but slightly flawed performance.

Olympic rules prevented Hanyu from bringing the honey-loving bear to Pyeongchang, but that hasn't stopped his fans from turning the Gangneung Ice Arena red and yellow in his honour this week.
