Yuzuru Hanyu Is Out For 'Revenge' At Worlds 2016; Tops Leaderboard For Short Program

Yuzuru Hanyu heads into a tail spin in his routine for the Men’s Short Program during the 2016 Worlds Figure Skating Championships at TD Arena on Wednesday night (March 30) in Boston, Mass.

The 21-year-old Japanese figure skater took the top spot during the Short Program, besting Spain’s Javier Fernandez, Canada’s Patrick Chan and Team USA’s Adam Rippon and Max Aaron, who sit in 7th and 8th places, respectively.

“I feel like because I lost last year in this competition, I have to have revenge,” Yuzuru told press ahead of the competition.

His coach, Brian Orser, added, “[Hanyu] wants to win more than anything. It didn’t sit well with him [last year]. The only consolation was that it was Javi that won. That was a little easier pill to swallow. But he wants to win, and so does Javi. They’re both capable of winning.”

The Men’s Free Program will air Friday, April 1st @ 6:45PM. Check your local listings for the channel.
