At age two, Hanyu was diagnosed with asthma. He would get better with time but it remained an issue well into his career in junior competition.

But if you’re just getting into skating and want to know what it takes to be great at it, then there are some things you should learn from Yuzuru Hanyu.

Here are some of his best tips for success:

1) Stay humble. Don’t let your ego get too big!

2) Be confident in yourself—but not cocky! You need to believe that you can do something before you try it out… but don’t let your confidence get out of control or else you’ll mess up!

3) Practice makes perfect! Try different things until you find something that works for YOU (not anyone else), and keep practicing until it becomes second nature

Hanyu began skating at the age of four after his sister’s coach Mami Yamada had suggested he try the sport instead of being a nuisance during his sister’s training. In 2009, he made his junior international debut on the ISU Junior Grand Prix (JGP) series, placing eighth in his first event. The following season, he won gold at both of his JGP assignments, took silver at the 2010 World Junior Championships, and earned a spot for Japan in the men’s event at the 2011 World Championships.

In April 2012, Hanyu won his first senior national title and placed second to Yuzuru’s teammate, Daisuke Takahashi at the 2012 World Championships. At 15 years old he was the youngest skater ever to win an Olympic gold medal in men’s singles when he captured gold at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.
