Cleaned Up Breakdown )

1) It’s unlikely this is Yuuri’s pre-series personal best SP. In episode 5, he beat his PB by almost 10 points with a 94.36. It’s not too far off, though.

2) Katsuki Yuuri: PCS powerhouse. Nothing lower than an 8.00.

Free Skate Program Elements Notepad:

1. Quad Toe Loop + Double Toe Loop Combination Jump
2. Flying Sit Spin
3. Quad Salchow Jump
4. Change Foot Camel Spin
5. Triple Loop Jump
6. Choreographed Sequence (read it incorrectly)
7. Triple Axel Jump x
8. Triple Flip Jump x
9. Triple Axel + 1 Loop + Triple Salchow Combination Jump x
10. Triple Lutz + Triple Toe Loop Combination Jump x
11. Quad Toe Loop Combination Jump x
12. Combination spin with change of foot


  • Yuuri starts off his Free Skate program with a quad toe loop + double toe loop competition… This is less difficult than a 4-3 combination initially, so can be done.
  • Assuming that he makes all the jumps in the second half (hopefully as indicated by x), the 1.1x base value bonus to the jumps in the second half will increase by a total of 5 points!
  • Depending on the performance, the Grade oExecution will be added to the base value of the jump! For example, a perfect GOE of 3 from the judges will result in the addition of a GOE of 3 points!
  • For example, a triple flip jump normally has a 8.5 base value. With the 1.1x bonus, it would be 9.85 base value in the second half of the program. With a perfect GOE, it would be 12.85 points! This is a whooping 4.35 difference for just one jump!
  • Yuuri has 5 jumps in the second half. Hypothetically, if he gets a 3 GOE for all the jumps, that’s at least 15 points to his elements! (But that never happens unless 8 of the judges give a 3. The top score and the lowest score is removed, and the last 7 are averaged between 7 judges.) But if he falls, that’s an automatic -1 deduction.
  • And this doesn’t include his program component score, which usually boosts his score up because Yuuri is weak in his jump elements!

[ Information Origination Here ]

@tammaiya does linguistics, and I’ve lived on four continents. Together we go travelling and distract ourselves figuring out what languages the characters of Yuri On Ice would speak. (I was bored at work…)

Katsuki Yuri 🇯🇵
- Japanese (native)
- English. Very good/fluent; he studied in Detroit for years, and English would be the common language between the skaters on the world stage.
- Russian. Basic to moderate, but of course Victor is teaching him* so he’s levelling up quick.
- Italian? Basic only, whatever words Yuri picked up from his former coach.
- Thai? Basic only, he does greet Phichit in Thai when he calls up.

Victor Nikiforov 🇷🇺
- Russian (native)
- English. Very good to fluent, presuming he studied in school, he’s been on the international stage enough, and it’s his common language with Yuri.
- Japanese. Basic to moderate, but of course Yuri is teaching him*, plus he lives in Hasetsu for months, so he’s levelling up quick.
- French? Presuming that Victor has been in ballet training in Europe he’d come into contact with French.

(* Headcanon: after months living and training together in Hasetsu, by the time the international competitions start and they’re joined at the hip, Victor and Yuri are probably talking to each other in English liberally sprinkled with Russian and Japanese words and phrases. This combined with their obvious COUPLEDOM SHORTHAND probably makes for conversations and interactions that to observers can be impossible to keep up with let alone understand beyond THESE TWO ARE OBVIOUSLY BANGING.)

Yuri Plisetsky 🇷🇺
- Russian (native)
- English. Very good to fluent, he gets a message from Yuko in English.
- Japanese? Whatever basic words and phrases he picks up while in Hasetsu.
