Since I made one for the Russian ladies, I thought it would be only fair to make one for the amazzing ladies of Japan as well.

Kanako Murakami ( My personal Fav) Besides Mao of course. Anyway, She's the 2010 Junior World Champion. She got first at the Japan Figure Skating Nationals ( Junior) and 5th for ( Senior ). She has amazzing talent and hopefully she'll go far with it.

Yukiko Fujisawa: She was the Bronze medal winner at the JGP Budapest. She was also the Bronze Medal Winner at the Japan Junior Championships.

Yuki Nishino: For some reason I really enjoy this skater. She was the 2007 Junior GPF Bronze medal winner. She was also the 2007 Japanese Silver Medal Winner at Japanese Nationals.

So enjoy. Hopefully these girls have a bright future ahead of them in Japan's already bright enough skating field.

Also, Karen Kemanai (July 13, 1995) who was 6th at JPN junior nationals, 11th at senior. Won her only international event, 2009 Coupe de nice (juniors), with a score of 122.77. She seems to be one of those skaters who do poorly in the short and then jump up the ranks in the free skate.

And there's Roannasari Oshikawa (October 19, 1994) who was 11th at junior nationals, but was 4th in seniors at the NRW trophy.

Kako Tomotaki was 5th at junior nationals, 18th at senior. Does anyone know her age?

Fujisawa :encore: :swoon: What a talent. Whoever was/is her coach did a great job teaching her the basics. Wonder skating skills and great technique on about everything (except for the slight lip) :) I hope she goes far (along with Kanako)!

Would anyone like to help translate the top 6 (or more) Novice 'A' National finishers' names (ladies and men) from October 2009 in this old thread? http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=69418

All I've been able to find online is a wikipedia page that mentions the top 4 Novice ladies who were invited to compete in Junior Nationals in November 2009: Ayana Nasuhara (1st in novice, 28th in junior), Risa Shoji (2nd in nov., 10th in jr.), Riona Kato (3rd in nov., 7th in jr.) and Satoko Miyahara (4th in nov., 4th in jr.).

Thanks! so it should have been written 12/09/95 :P I actually got into the habbit of using 12-Sep-95 for all dates as I am working with the US a lot and they always get the date format wrong from a European point of view ;)

Done. :)

While translating I stumbled across this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smFUFyVxpG4) with training footage of Shoma Uno and Ayaka Osamura. Yuko Monna (Miki Ando's first coach) says she is as big a talent as Mao and Miki.

Arigato, softlip!


Yuko Monna (Miki Ando's first coach) says she [Ayaka Osamura] is as big a talent as Mao and Miki.
Did she compete at Novice 'A' Nationals last October? If yes, what place did she finish below 6th?

ETA: nsima posted videos from a February 2010 local competition that includes the SP of Osamura: 2010 Aichi prefecture championship (http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=72251) (I think you have to register an account in order to view them, though)

Ayaka Osamura placed 29th at the Jpn Nat Novice A in Oct 2009 (score: 52.08). According to this (http://www.ctv.co.jp/straight/0910281155/figure.html) she missed a jump she usually hasn't a problem with, tried to cover it up by changing her jump layout and pulled basically an Oda.

However she won the regional Chubu Novice A (http://www.skatingjapan.jp/National/2009-2010/fs/block4/data0690.htm) in Sep 2009 with a score of 72.99 in front of Miu Sato.

At the Jpn Nat Novice A in Nov 2008 (http://www.skatingjapan.jp/National/2008-2009/fs/national_nv/data0290.htm)she placed 5th with a score of 69.20.
The top 6 were: 1.Miu Sato, 2.Mao Watanabe (now Jr), 3.Karen Kemanai (now Jr), 4.Risa Shoji, 5.Ayaka Osamura, 6. Haruna Suzuki
