*** Birth Years are proving problematic because the anime isn’t consistent!! At!!! All!!! with the character’s ages*** 

{{I am currently watching episode 8, where all the Skaters are being ‘aged’ and they are not consistent with ages mentioned prior to the GPF Qualifiers in episodes 6, 7, and 8. SO.. take what you see below with a grain of salt? The month and day come from the official website. Those are absolutely canon.}} 

OKAY KIDS THIS IS WHAT I’M GOING TO DO: I am going to assume that the ages provided for us in episodes 6,7 and 8 as the characters are being introduced for the GPF Qualifiers are the ‘canon’ ages. Since all of this is happening, according to the schedule of real life figure skating events, in 2014, I’m going to use that as my ‘base year’ . Using a super scientific method (of scribbling numbers on a paper with a grid) I have come up with the following: 

  • December 25, 1984 - Victor Nikiforov
  • December 26, 1987 - Georgi Poporov
  • February 14, 1989 - Christophe Giacometti
  • November 26, 1990 - Yuuri Katsuki
  • April 30, 1994 - Phichit Chulanont
  • June 6, 1994 - Seong-Gil Lee 
  • July 15, 1995 - Jean-Jaques Leroy
  • August 2, 1995 Leo De la Iglesia
  • July 8, 1996 - Emil Nekola
  • October 21, 1996 Otabek Altin
  • January 7, 1997 Guang-Hong Ji
  • March 1, 1999 Yuri Plisestsky

This makes it more like a 5 year gap between Yuuri and Victor ( it’s tricky since both their birthdays are near the end of the year), but nothing was mentioned in the Japanese version about far apart they were. 

1994-1996: Yuuri begins skating

  • Can’t really tell how old he is, but he looks to be somewhere between 4 and 6 years old which is pretty consistent with when skaters start. 

2001: Feb 26-March 2 Junior World Championships Sofia, Bulgaria 

  • At 16 Victor Nikiforov wins Gold at the Junior World Championships
  • Victor says “See you at Worlds!” Unsure if he means as a senior in the WFSC later in the month of March, or if he means next season’s WFSC. 
  • Probably, Victor moved on to the Senior division after this. 

**Note: The Japanese version of episode 1 does not give an age for Victor when he won the Junior world championships. The English dub has Yuuri narrating that he was 12 and Victor was 4 years his senior. So I’ve opted to ignore the English version as it throws a monkey wrench in everything else and just use the ages provided in the Japanese subs or on-screen text** 

2002: Feb 8-24 Winter Olympics Salt Lake City

  • We don’t know if Victor participated. Nothing in canon, but Evgeni Plushenko was part of these Olympics and got Gold in the Mens Singles. 
  • Victor would have been 17 years old

2001-2003: Victor continues to compete , Yuuri’s Junior Debut

  • whether Victor competes at the Junior or Senior level is unclear. A skater can continue to compete at the junior level until the age of 19, after which they must switch to Senior division. 
  • competitors must be at least 13 years old and not older than 19 by July 1 of that year. 
  • However, we can guess that since Yuuri is aiming to skate at Victor’s level, it’s likely that Victor was already competing at the Senior level by the time Yuuri made it to the Juniors.

2003-2005: Victor and Yuuri continue to compete and rise through the ranks

2004: Feb 2-8 European Figure Skating Championships (Budapest, Hungary)

  • Victor Nikiforov wins gold 
  • Victor Nikiforov still sporting that lovely angel’s breath of long hair at 19 years old
  • Victor says to the camera “See you at Worlds!” implying the 2004 WFSC
  • Chris Giacometti’s Senior Debut

2004: March 22-28 World Figure Skating Championships (Dortmund, Germany)

  • It is implied that Victor competes but nothing stated blatantly in canon

2006: Feb 10-26 Winter Olympics in Turin 

  • Victor potentially competes as an Olympian @ age of 21
  • Based on Johnny Weir’s career which seems to have heavily influenced Kubo-san’s choices for Victor’s. (Weir didn’t place on the podium, but he participated. Additionally, another potential inspiration for Victor’s career - Evgeni Plushenko - competed and won gold in Turin)
  • All canon clues lead to confirming he competed and won gold at Turin, but there’s no ‘official’ announcement of it in canon, so I’m leaving it as speculation. 
  • We all know he won gold at Turin, okay. There’s probably some kind of legal issue with naming the Olympics directly, so I doubt we’ll get absolute, incontestable canon proof he was there and that he won gold. But he was there. And he won gold. 

— Victor starts a winning streak that doesn’t stop until he takes a break to travel to Japan to coach Yuuri —

Yuuri states that he had lost his love of skating and he was looking to regain that by copying Victor’s routine after returning home in March 2014)

  • It’s mostly here to help me keep track of time. It’s a good place-holder.

2014: February 7-23 Winter Olympics (Sochi, Russia)

  • It is heavily implied that Victor competes as part of the olympic team at the Sochi 2014 olympics. He is shown wearing the uniform at the Sochi GPF, which was a test event for the Sochi Olympic team, and he is wearing it again at the 2014 WFSC.

  • Yuuri training under Victor for Grand Prix Finals and creating ‘Yuri on Ice’ routine 
  • Phichit moves back to Thailand to train 

2014: October Southern Regional Championships, Japan Yuuri’s Grand Return

  • **Note: In episode 1, Yuuri explains that Southern Regional Championships happen in October - maybe this is the actual competition we’re looking at, rather than All-Japan which happens in December and would have made it impossible for Yuuri to qualify for the 2014-2015 Grand Prix Final. 
  • Looking at a map of Japan, it appears that all three prefectures are in the south, so I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the championship titled  “ The Chugoku, Shikoku, and Kyushu Championship” is referring to the qualifier in October.
