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.

The mixed zone exchange was reported also in this article (first published 10 February 2022), including parts that did not air in the TV segment. We have therefore translated the article as well, including additional parts not covered in the video.
