Hanyu is the first Japanese male skater to win Olympic gold. He became the first skater to surpass a total score of 300 points (322.40 points at NHK Trophy 2015). Hanyu followed his older sister Saya into skating. He looks up to Johnny Weir in figure skating. Hanyu's home and ice rink were damaged during the earthquake and tsunami catastrophe on March 11, 2011 and he trained in Yokohama before the ice rink re-opened four months later. Hanyu switched coaches in spring 2012 and has moved to Canada for training. Coach Brian Orser is the 1984 and 1988 Olympic silver medalist.
