Figure skating legend Yuzuru Hanyu launches YouTube channel

The GOAT of figure skating, Yuzuru Hanyu, just launched his YouTube channel!

On Sunday, the two-time Olympic gold medalist uploaded a short video introducing his channel.

"This is the official Yuzuru Hanyu YouTube channel. I started this channel, hoping that this will be another place to show my skating and performance from now on," said the 27-year-old, as translated in one of the comments.

"I'm not sure if I can meet your expectations, but I'll try my best skating. I'll keep trying so that you find some meaning in what you see. Please keep cheering me on."

He also said he is having a header and logo created for the channel.

As of writing, the channel has over 87,000 subscribers as fans expressed their excitement to see Yuzuru's skating once again.

The Japanese legend announced his retirement from competitive skating last month. He said he will keep performing in ice shows as a professional skater.
