I've borrowed a tape of the 1995 (1994-1995 season) Japanese Nationals Ladies event and can't identify two of the skaters in the final warmup group. Can anyone help with IDs? English-language Wikipedia has an article on the 1995-1996 competition, but nothing on this one besides names of the medalists.

In skate order:

KOIWAI Kumiko -- finished 3rd
?? (IWANOWA? IMANAWA? Something like that)
?? (Maybe KONO?) -- finished 6th
INOUE Rena
YAGINUMA Junko -- finished 2nd
YOKOYA Hanae -- finished 1st

Thanks.

Can you post the video? so I can identify them for you.

I'll see if I can figure out how to do that, but I may fail. I'm not sure I have the proper software to convert the .mpg files to something appropriate for posting. For that matter, I guess a single frame might be sufficient, if I knew how to capture one.

ks777, thanks for offering to look at the video for me. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to convert it and split it for posting.

I asked my Twitter skating friends in Japan, and they were:

Tomoko Imagawa
Maki Kono

Hope this helps. :)
