MOSCOW, 20 Jul – Canadian figure skating coach Brian Orser said he is grateful to two-time Olympic champion Japanese Yuzuru Hanyu for working together.
Hanyu, 27, announced his retirement at a press conference on Tuesday. The Japanese has been training under the guidance of Orser since 2012.

“We are very grateful for all ten years of working with you, it was the best time. I hope you feel the same towards us. We will be glad to see you at any time,” Orser said in a video posted on Instagram *.

“Thank you so much for what you have done for the sport, for taking it to new heights and making us all better. And I stand in solidarity with Brian,” said Tracey Wilson, coach of the Orser group.
Hanyu is a two-time Olympic champion (2014, 2018), a two-time world champion (2014, 2017), a four-time Grand Prix Finals winner and a Four Continents Tournament (2020) winner in men’s singles. In March, the Japanese missed the World Figure Skating Championships due to a right ankle injury sustained during a performance at the Beijing Olympics.
