    2010 Japan Open

    I've opened up another thread in the Kiss and Cry area about this competition. So far, Team North America includes:

    • Joannie Rochette
    • Adam Rippon


    Does anyone else know who else will be included from North America as well as the other regions?

    Moderator, would you please cancel this thread if it belongs in Kiss and Cry?

    Thanks

    My two cents -- I think it makes more sense to have this pre-event thread here in GSD rather than Kiss and Cry. Posted in the duplicate thread:

    Isn't it about time to open up the 2010-2011 Kiss N Cry?

    Only one lady left for North America. Maybe Mirai?

    That's who I was thinking. It has to be an American lady if Joannie is already going, and Mirai was the highest placing U.S. lady at both the Olympics and Worlds. Plus, her Japanese heritage might entice the JSF to invite her again, as she has a fairly large following in Japan.

    Guesses on the European team? Perhaps Lambiel as the professional skater for Europe, and then maybe Lepisto, Kostner and Brezina?

    I agree. This might be the European team. I'd very happy if it happened!

    Team Japan: Asada, Takahashi, Kozuka, Ando (Looks mighty strong)
    Team North America: Rochette, Buttle, Rippon, Nagasu(?)
    How about Lepisto, Lambiel, Kostner and Contesti for Team Europe?

    I think Honda will skate at the gala only. They'll invite some notable skaters (Plush, Yags, S/Z..) for the Japan Open gala as they always do.

    She gave herself some time to think about. She's now in preparation and creating new programmes and her motivation is back. Getting any GPs was also an important factor. So the plan at the moment is to skate until Bern.
