Olympic champion, Hanyu to miss worlds

Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu, who last month became the first male in 66 years to win back-to-back Olympic gold medals in men’s figure skating, will not defend his world title later this month, the Japan Skating Federation said on Wednesday.

Hanyu last month became the first male in 66 years to win back-to-back Olympic gold medals in men’s figure skating.

The 23-year-old cast doubt on his participation in Milan after his Olympic triumph in PyeongChang, South Korea at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

He has said repeatedly that healing the right ankle he injured in a training fall late last year was his priority.
