is akiko suzuki retiring?
we all know that suguri isn't ...
I'm looking forward to seeing Risa Shoji next season, she was such a lovely addition this season, her skating is so elegant and she definitely gives me Shizuka vibes. I think this girl could really go places if she survives puberty and works on consistently rotating her jumps, at 14 she has all the other bases covered already and the judges seem to like her skating too, judging from her PCS marks.
akiko's fiddler on the roof programme was just wonderful. call me old school, but i just love the music / choreography / everything .... pls update us if you know what akiko's skating to next season!!!
also call me , but i am not all that sure about murakami's potential. she has got good speed across the ice, but a few things will hurt her ... 1) really awful technique on the flip and 2) terrible flutz. plus, she can't rely on that "I'm so cute" look soon ..... . The third spot on the world team (assuming Miki ando continues to compete) belongs to AKIKO.
ah, thank you. she sure has great taste in music and choreography
i also don't want akiko to be overlooked in favor of the new generation--they aren't quite ready yet, presentation wise, IMO, though risa shoji is definitely one to watch.
tell you what, japan can have the non-nagasu worlds spot from the USA ;p
(just kidding, fellow americans, put down your pitchforks)
Thanks for the link. I loves me my Dai.
That was a great interview from Dai he really talked openly about his season and shared his feeling and emotions. I hope all goes well with his surgery and rehab.
Thanks to Sylvia for the link and to mot for the translation.
Great interview. Thanks to Sylvia and mot...you both rock!
