Upon arrival, he attends his best friend, Yuko, at an ice rink. There, he performs a brilliant technique similar to his idol, Russian five-time world champion, Victor Nikiforov.

Accidentally, he was filmed on camera. As a result, this video clip has become popular on the Internet, and it attracted the attention of Victor. Being impressed with Yuri's skills, Victor decides to visit him in his hometown in order to offer him his assistance in training. Victor is going to revive Yuri's career. As turned out, they know each other thanks to a sudden encounter at a banquet. Yuri was drunk and tried to convince Victor to train him as his personal coach.

Later, it is revealed that another talented figure skater wants to be an apprentice trained by Victor. His name is Yuri Plisetsky, and he is a 15-year-old Russian prodigy skater. Victor promised him to become his coach as well. Yuri Plisetsky went on a journey to Hasetsu (Katsuki's hometown) in order to force Victor to keep a promise. Victor offers two boys to compete with each other to decide who of them is the best one and who is worthy to become his apprentice. Katsuki wins, whereupon Plisetsky is forced to come back home. But both of them nonetheless vow to become the winners of the Grand Prix championship.

During the Grand Prix, Katsuki and Victor become closer to each other that leads to their further engagement. A day before the final, Katsuki reveals to Victor that he is going to conclude his career, allowing Victor to return to sport. But Victor doesn't agree with this decision. They decide to choose their own ways after the end of the Grand Prix. As a result, Yuri Plisetsky wins the gold medal, whereas Yuri Katsuki wins the silver one.
