Yuzuru Hanyu is one of the most well-known figure skaters in the world right now. On Friday, August 4, he used his social media to announce that he was getting married. Hanyu thanked his fans for always being there for him during his 24-year ice skating career and promised to keep doing what he loves.
He shared the message on his official Twitter account. But the post didn’t say who his partner was or when the wedding might be. The 28-year-old two-time Olympic winner in figure skating quit the sport after coming in fourth at the Beijing Winter Games in 2022, just missing out on a third straight gold medal.
Figure skating legend Hanyu Yuzuru announces his marriage.
“I’ll continue to spend my life with everyone who has supported me, along with figure skating, living life and moving forward with everything I’ve got.”
