The two-time Olympic figure skating champion Hanyu Yuzuru is married, the Japanese star announced on Friday (4 August 2023).

In a post on social media, posted at the superstitious time of 11:11pm in Japan, Hanyu thanked fans for their support throughout his skating career and said: "Thank you for your constant support. I, Hanyu Yuzuru, am pleased to announce that I have decided to get married.

"For the past 24 years, I have lived with skating. Especially in the recent few years, I have been facing skating and thinking about myself and the world, while feeling many things in the unstable and fast-changing world due to Covid-19, natural disasters, world affairs, etc.

"I am still immature as a human being, both now that I have turned professional and in my past as a competitor, but I have received immeasurably greater strength from your support and expectations.

"I will continue to deepen ‘Hanyu Yuzuru’ skating through my life, and continue to work hard and grow. I will continue to build up bit by bit, moment by moment, so that I can skate at my best.

"I will continue to live my life with everyone who supports me and with skating, doing my best, moving forward.

"And with gratitude to those who have supported me and those who will continue to support me, I will continue to skate so that I can give everything in the best possible way. Please continue to support me in the future."

T.n: apparently, for the word "married", he said "enter a family's register (ibjeok/입적)" which means
1. noun: In legal family law, the act of enrolling in a family register.
2. noun: An enrollment in some place.

1. Be happy

2. Of course he got married knowing the consequence he'll face

2. I'm Japanese and in Japan, and the word ibjeok = marriage registration. Celebrities would use that word when announcing their marriage... also, among the Japanese figure skaters, Hanyu's personality is the manliest. When you look at the Japanese figure skaters, they have a lot of aegyo, I'm not saying that their personality is feminine

3. I also thought that he was still super young but he just has a baby face. Congrats on your marriage

4. He didn't mention anything about his spouse in this post so I kinda feel like he's marrying his skateㅋㅋㅋ he never got into any dating scandal before getting married. Congrats congrats

5. Maybe because his image was one of someone being deeply obsessed with figure skating, it makes his marriage news feel even more sudden. Congrats congrats, I hope he builds a happy family

6. Oh be happy!!! Meanwhile, there are so many trolls in the comments...

7. Why are people randomly mentioning same-sex marriage in the comments?ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ seriously, cut it down

8. Hul I thought that he was the same age as Cha Junhwan but he's pretty old

9. Be happy be happy

10. Wow Hanyu's marriage?!!! Congrats, Hanyu-yah, live a happy life~~
