Daily routine: Five things to do - 10 May

From Hanyu Yuzuru "skating" at home to Allyson Felix running in her neighbourhood, here's five things you might have missed this Sunday.

By Olympic Channel ·

It's Sunday, the last day of the weekend for some of us and the start of a new work week for others.

As always, we're here with five things you can do today, from the comfort of wherever you may be socially distancing.

Remember to keep occupied as you #StayStrong, #StayHealthy, and #StayActive.

1) Watch Hanyu's performances through the ages

The Japanese Skating Federation has uploaded a clip of double Olympic champion Hanyu Yuzuru "performing" parts of his various routines dating back to 2011, all from the safety of the corner of a room rather than on the ice.

It's part of the JSF's #SkateForward campaign during the coronavirus outbreak, featuring various figure skaters and speed skaters.

This is one not to be missed for all figure skating fans on this Sunday.

2) Be wowed by this 11-year-old skateboarder

It's pretty incredible to be a history-maker at 11 years old.

But that's what Gui Khury, a Brazilian skateboarder, has achieved after nailing a 1080 on a vert ramp, becoming the first person to land that trick on vert.

Ultimately, vert – Shaun White's preferred skateboarding discipline – isn't at the Olympics, where park and street will debut next year in Tokyo, so we won't be seeing Khury there.

But it's still a very impressive achievement.

3) Read about Allyson Felix's coronavirus training routine

Like everyone else, athletes have been affected by governmental restrictions in the time of coronavirus.

Six-time Olympic champion Allyson Felix, who moved to Los Angeles specifically to train with her coach ahead of Tokyo 2020, is no different.

Speaking to the New York Times, she says she has taken to running "wherever we can — isolated trails, empty baseball fields, just anywhere, even in my own neighbourhood like the streets around my house."

4) News: NBA training returns

Two National Basketball Association teams – the Cleveland Cavaliers and Portland Trail Blazersresumed individual practice at their training facilities on Friday.

Like sports leagues around the world, the NBA has been suspended during the pandemic, moving quickly after player Rudy Gobert tested positive.

Now, like football clubs in some European countries, teams are slowly returning to the court to keep in shape, although there remains no clear indication when the NBA will resume.

5) Support Olympic volleyball medallist

Beijing 2008 silver medallist in beach volleyball Marcio Araujo is fighting a severe case of Covid-19, according to Web Vôlei Brasil.

The 46-year-old went to the hospital in Fortaleza but was turned away due to a lack of intensive care beds, despite him struggling to breathe.

Araujo, the 2005 world champion alongside Fabio Magalhaes, also posted on Instagram with the message: "I'm going to recover, God willing."
