As someone who did competitive synchronized skating for 9 years, can I just say that I love Shoma’s arm movements?
In synchro, one of the big things is having perfectly placed (and synchronized) arms with those long lines. No floppy arms allowed. And Shoma has such great attention to detail with the arm movements. Everything is intentional. Much in the way that it is in synchro where every single arm movement is choreographed with zero room for improvisation. Even when he has those softer lines, they don’t look lazy. There is energy all the way through his fingertips.
