    Yes, after Stephane's retirement, only Daisuke does real figure skating out there.

    Belated Happy Birthday, Dai, the REAL Olympic Champ 2010!!!

    Don't retire, please!!! If only skaters like Chan remain, I don't see any reason to watch it any more ... and Men always used to be my favourite discipline!

    Since we now have a hope of seeing his current season's programmes once more, here is the latest clip, showing his practice session. He had been in Tsuruga in Fukui Prefecture for two weeks, holding a special training camp for the Worlds. He invited the press and the local people, especially kids skaters, to come and see the practice session, which took place in the morning of March 11, a few hours before the earth quake struck.

    Thanks for the link! His quad and spins look a lot better. I really don't want him to retire but who knows what will happen after (another) knee surgery?

    I was not aware that Dai was going to have surgery. Is it the same knee?

    Yes, it is. Daisuke said he would have to have a screw in his right knee removed. He was going to have the surgery last spring, but postponed it just because he wanted to do his best to prepare for Worlds in Tokyo. I feel really sorry for him.

    Thank you for the information. Poor Dai I hope he is not in much pain.

    Dai is gonna skate in a charity exhibition in Kobe on April 9th, together with other Japanese skaters:

    The remarkable thing is that he is the only from the Worlds' team Japan who is going to skate, in spite of the preparation for the Worlds.
