He said this only months after March 11, 2011. In only 3 years, he became Olympic champion. He donated all of his winnings to help Tohoku. Every time he steps on the ice, he bows, gives a little touch with his hand, thanking every opportunity he has to skate. He screams his heart out saying thank you to the many fans and audience. No matter what, he gives his all. He has kept his words. He is our inspiration.
