    I started a new page on FB Daisuke Takahashi Road to Sochi
    This is a page to support DaisukeTakahashi on his journey to Sochi 2014. We'll have the latest news, pictures, videos and translations from Japanese press. Please "like" it to support Dai-chan in this final Olympic season.

    I'll say this now, before the actual competitions start.

    Dear Daisuke fans, ubers, etc.
    If you go to an event where Daisuke is at PLEASE take lots of pictures (good ones!), take LOTS of video footage of him everywhere you see him. That includes: Practices, Warm-ups, Exhibition practices, Gala practices, everything! I'm sorry if I come off as greedy, but I for one, REALLY get a kick out of seeing Daisuke outside of actually performing. Especially at gala practices. It's fun seeing who he interacts with and playing around.

    Thanks, Jiazumi
    P.S. (I'm going to copy-pasta this in Javi's thread and D/W's too, so don't report this as spam.)

    Nice page!

    FB is free. Just sign up for an account and use it as a portal for supporting your skaters. There is no obligation to be the host of some sort of huge public presentation with pictures and updates. FB is a convenient platform for people to share.

    Any Daisuke fans here who are good at graphic design? I have a great idea for a T shirt that I would like to make him for a New/Olympic Year present. But alas, I have no graphic design talent. Anybody want to help me? It could be from both of us.

    Please send your messages of support and good wishes to Daisuke. He does read them, and I am sure he will be happy to know we are always supporting him and sending him our good thoughts, and that we are waiting for him to come back strong and healthy!

    Thank you, Sylvia! The men's event was a bit sad for me because of Dai's injury. It is nice to hear good news.
