A message from the AWW team – Beijing Olympics 2022 coverage

Photo by Toru Yaguchi, Sports Hochi

We have now formally concluded translations of the Beijing Winter Olympics content from the Axel with Wings team (unless we get ambushed by another media feature). We would like to thank our team and all of the video subbers and transcribers that have helped us during this period. Together, we completed 19 fully subbed videos totalling over 85min and 4 text interviews, over a 1.5mth period.

It was happy, painful and inspiring in equal measure, but it was thanks to the tireless dedication and love of every single person involved that we could do our best in bringing Yuzuruโ€™s words to you. 

As always, we want to say that a single translation is never going to be a definitive source of truth but we are proud of the work we have done and thank everyone for their kind comments.

It truly means a lot to us to read your reactions and see the effect of Yuzuโ€™s words and philosophy on fans all around the world. You are why we do this.

For now, the AWW team will take a short break until Yuzuโ€™s next appearance. Please take care everyone. We hope to see you soon!

Thank you especially to:

We are the Axel with Wings translation team, made up of fans of Yuzuru Hanyu. We hope to share videos of him and Japanese figure skating content with more people around the world. We aim to do our best to accurately capture the spirit of what's said. Hope you enjoy our videos and other contents.

  1. It is difficult to express in words how grateful I am for your work, which allows us non-Japanese to know the great personality of Yuzuru.
