So happy for Oda and his wife!!!! Congrats to them.
Congrats to Oda and to his wife!!!
It's hard to say who IS the number #3 man in Japan right now. Hanyu and Dai are clearly #1 and 2 (at least for now). If Japanese Nats is the judging criteria, then Mura is #3, Oda #4 and Kozuka #5. But Mura got third by placing 4th in both SP and LP--Oda got 3rd in the LP and Kozuka got 3rd in the SP.
Anyway... yes, Oda is still a big star in Japan. While he doesn't have a world medal (but he's beaten just about everyone who does at some point), he's a 4CC champion, 2-time GPF silver medalist, GPF bronze medalist, Junior World champion, former Japanese national champion. In seven seasons, he's medaled in every GP event he's entered except two.
I wouldn't put him out to pasture just yet.
Congrats to the lovely little family!
Congrat to Nobunari and Mayu and their growing family!
Mayu, Nobunari Oda's wife, has updated the header image of her Twitter account - three guesses who features there (warning, I am barfing all of my rainbows right now - you could have similar reactions ):
I'm not sure what's cuter, the header picture or the profile one.
