A note on suffixes: Generally, an athlete who retires from competition stops being referred to with the suffix ‘senshu’ (選手) in Japan and instead is called ‘san’ (さん). In the spirit of preserving this meaningful nuance and in recognition of his intention to continue being an athlete, we have kept this suffix as-is in translations of all media coverage of Yuzuru’s professional athlete announcement.
