Hanyu is the first Japanese male skater to win Olympic gold and the first man since 1948 and 1952 Olympic Chammpion Dick Button (USA) to win back-to-back Olympic gold medals. He is the first skater to perform a clean quadruple loop in competition (2016 Autumn Classics in Canada). Hanyu 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.
