Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Dodgers answers reporters’ questions about his marriage

Shohei Otani of the U.S. Major League Baseball Dodgers announced his marriage to a common woman on February 29 in a surprise announcement.

The sudden big news caused a stir not only in Japan but also in the United States. Every media outlet carried the news on their top stories.

And as expected ……, an article comparing Shohei Otani to Yuzuru Hanyu, a professional figure skater of about the same age, popped up.

Shohei Otani’s surprise marriage without the same hint of a marriage… “Decisive difference” between Shohei Otani and Yuzuru Hanyu shown at the announcement (Joseijishin Web Edition).

Shohei Otani, who announced his marriage to Yuzuru Hanyu, took a “lesson” from the “senior major leaguer” as a role model.

On August 4 last year, Hanyu married a violinist. However, about three months later, on November 17, he announced his divorce. At that time, Hanyu cited excessive media coverage as the cause, claiming that he stepped aside to “protect” his wife.

This drew controversy and affected his already rock-solid reputation.

Otani explained the circumstances of his marriage at a press conference the day after the announcement, and it is understandable why he might want to contrast his “secrecy” with Hanyu’s. Otani’s comments on his marriage also included the comment that “there are differences between the two of us.

However, they are in different situations. Mr. Hanyu is only as good as his female fans, so it’s only natural that he would try not to expose their married life as much as possible, just as he does with his idols. I think it is unfair to say that Otani is good and Hanyu is bad.

The only major difference between the two is their comments when they announced their marriage. The only major difference is his comment at the time of his marriage announcement: “Otani refers to his wife as

Otani declared that his wife was “very special to me.

On the other hand, Otani announced on August 4 last year that he was getting married to his wife, “very special to me.

On the other hand, Hanyu’s wedding report on August 4 of last year contained no mention of his wife, but mostly “about myself” and “thank you” to his fans. Hanyu also did not use the word “wife” in his comments on his divorce, but instead referred to her as his “partner.

Hanyu only made a comment, but Otani attended a media conference. He even went so far as to respond to the media before the match so that he would be ready in time for the morning news in Japan. The difference in the way they handled the situation may have been the difference between the two. ……

There is no doubt that both Otani and Hanyu are world-class athletes. They should each continue on their professional paths in the future. ……
