    This November 2012 press release announced Canon's sponsorship involvement with the Grand Prix Final, Four Continents, Junior Worlds and Worlds for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons: http://www.canon.com/news/2012/nov21e.html

    Thanks to the "Daisuke Takahashi - New Interview" thread, I discovered that Canon has an entire website dedicated to figure skating (in Japanese): http://web.canon.jp/event/skating/index.html

    Other interviews: Kevin Reynolds and Gracie Gold at 2013 Four Continents, Patrick Chan, Akiko Suzuki, Takeshi Honda, and Yuzuru Hanyu (after he won 2012 NHK Trophy).
    Via Google Translate: http://translate.google.com/transla...b.canon.jp/event/skating/interview/index.html

    There are also photo galleries by event, interviews with Japanese sports photographers, and more.

    What a great idea! Whoever thought of this is a PR genius.
