    That's excellent strategy WRT World Standings points: Oda (1st at Nebelhorn) and Machida (1st at Nepala) have one Senior B this year, and Kozuka has none so far. Good showings at these events will help to keep their standings up or at least from dropping too far down the food chain: at the end of this season Kozuka, for example, will lose more than half his WS points from 2010-11, while many other skaters will have championship points to compensate for the ones they will lose.

    There is a fairly long interview on the Canon website with Takeshi Honda who talks about Japan's Men skating:

    http://web.canon.jp/event/skating/in...nt_honda1.html

    Maybe one of our Japanese speakers can provide a translation? If not, I will try to do so between today and this weekend, depending on the workload

    so I hope his recovery is progressing nicely but I wonder he has enough time to prepare for first competition.
    needless to say, I think this is very good chance for him and I'm so glad to watch his performance in this season, again.

    if that helps, he updated his blog on 4th Jun.
    he trained swimming as rehabilitation.

    At the end, he wrote "I resolve on making utmost efforts and I want to celebrate with you all in Sochi"

    At any rate, that's what she announced in the press release following the termination of her contract with Toyota

    Miki Ando is possibly marrying a pro skater Yasuharu Nanri (南里康晴).
    http://zasshi.news.yahoo.co.jp/artic...004-pseven-spo

    This article belongs to a gossip magazine though...

    Hmm, I seem to remember a story about Ando dating Nanri a few years ago that turned out to be false. Now that they're "getting married", maybe they actually went out on a real date ?

    eta: link to article scan. In case it's not ok to link to other forums, please feel free to remove.

    It says the news source is a sports writer. Ando and Nanri are friends since their junior days. Their families have known each other. Ando has visited Fukuoka where Nanri lives frequently and practiced together at the local rink. Ando is appearing numerous shows recently because of Nanri's offers.

    The source is a tabloid article, but it has Nikolai Morozov saying that Miki Ando wants him to be her coach again and that he does not exclude the possibility that he will indeed coach her again next year.

    to be honest, she achieved great results under him, ok, we have no comparison of a grown ando and other coaches, but their 'sportive relationship' was quite succesful

    I really wish people would stop bringing dadygin as a source for any information. The guy should be employed by 'mills&boon' rather than a paper
