    Translated from Japanese.
    Kanako won Gold of an overwhelming victory with the two consecutive triple jumps combination.
    February 6th, 2011 JST

    http://www.nikkansports.com/sports/n...06-733709.html

    In the Ladies of figure skating, Kanako Murakami (16, Chukyo University Chukyo High School) won the Gold medal. Skating without a great mistake, such as nailing the two consecutive triple jumps combination in the free skating, she won an overwhelming victory with 177.04 points while keeping the first place from SP. Standing on the top of Asia in her first international multi-sports event, she gained momentum in order to participate to the Worlds of this March. Haruka Imai (Nihonbashi Jyogakkan High School), too, won the second place with 167.00 points in total. In the Ladies event of figure skating, Japan won the third consecutive victory on the heels of Shizuka Arakawa and Yukari Nakano.

    She clenched and held up her fists unconsciously with confidence of triumph as soon as she ended her performance with gallant look. At the same time, the smiling face of her trademark burst. In the international multi-sports event which she participated for the first time, Murakami won the 1st place not only in SP but also in FS. And her total score approached her personal best score to 1.55 points. She said, “I am glad very much. On the whole, my performance was good really today”. The star which Japan expects to stood on the top of Asia. The star which Japan looks forward to stood on the top of Asia.

    Nailing the two consecutive triple jumps combination finely, she rode on the stream. She did not do a remarkable failure, except that she touched slightly the ice in the double Axel. She performed to the adult-like graceful music excellently, using her 158 centimeter body most effectively.

    As for this season when she made debut to the senior, she participated also to the small competition like an Aichi Figure Skating Competition to build up her experience. This event is her 8th competition in this season, but the number of times of participation is much more than that of any other top players. The training of a day sometimes lasts even 6 hours, so that she says "The training is harder than the competition even if there is not a competition". The attention to her around her is rising rapidly but she continues an effort modestly, while saying, "I am glad, but I don't have such a real power yet".

    The hope who continues growth, while repeating both the training and the real competition, seems to be scheduled to participate to 2 competitions even before the Worlds (at Tokyo) of March which becomes the compilation of the season for her. The 1st-year high school student of 16 years old who let out a result like the pre-expectation swore the more leap with the smiling look, saying, "There was not the pressure at all, I would like to do the perfect performance in SP also and in FS also in next time".

    Reed Sibling won the Silver in Ice Dance.
    February 6th, 2011 JST

    As soon as their performance finished, the younger brother Chris clenched his fists in triumph and the elder sister Cathy clenched her fists after an instant from him, too. They said, "We could skate well" with one voice.

    As for the step of the free dance, they changed the composition bigly in January because it had been so difficult that it could say "crazy", therefore it got somewhat easier. The training time for this event had been short, but it was the result which they can be completely satisfied that their step is number one as for. Chris said, “I does not satisfied

    Aiming at the Worlds, they have the chance to train moreover. Chris said, “I am not satisfied yet. We are going to train much from now on”. Cathy who had touched the ice with the hand in the short dance, said, “I take care to strengthen my mental aspect”. They seem to have found the problem which should be solved from now on respectively.

    The Results of Ice Dance
    1 Xintong Hung/Xun Zheng (CHN) 129.75 points (SD=1st place with 53.11, FD=3rd place with 76.64)
    2 Cathy Reed/Chris Reed (JPN) 128.28 points (SD=2nd place with 50.97, FD=1st place with 77.31)
    3 Xiaoyang Yu/Chen Wang (CHN) 127.50 (SD=3rd place with 50.70, FD=2nd Place with 76.80)

    In the exhibition which was held in Astana of Kazakhstan in February 6th, who attracted a great deal of attention from the audience is Cathy Reed (23) and Chris Reed (21) of Japan Representative. They danced splendidly with gorgeous “Kimono” or “Japanese traditional formal wear”.

    They are a sibling who came from Michigan of US, but their mother is Japanese. In the free dance of ice dance which was held in February 5th, they got the highest score, but they ended up in Silver because they were defeated by Chinese team regrettably. Cathy said
    Cathy said, “Practicing more and getting confidence, we want to do our best again in the Worlds. This event became a good experience for us”.

    However, in the exhibition, the kimono was popular with the audience and they attracted most audience's attention.
    They drew an applause which surpasses that of Kanako Murakami and Haruka Imai from the audience.

    According to ISU Communication No. 1629:
    1.6 Regional International Competition (e.g. Nordics, Asian Winter Games etc.) or competitions, which are open only for special groups of skaters (e.g. Universiade, events with invitations only to designated Members (except the ISU Grand Prix events), etc.) will not count for the ISU World Standings/Season’s World Ranking

    Ehhh that's a shame.

    Although Nordics can be now taken off that list I think, since Senior events are opened to everyone, meaning it should count as any other B-International now.
