    He should've won Bronze in 2011 if he only had learned to count.

    He should be a world medalist; too many combos has prevented this!

    On September 28 Kanako Murakami announced to withdraw from Chubu regionals. The heel part of her skateboot was broken and unable to use. She changed her boot back to the old one and it came out that her foot got swollen.

    According to her coach Machiko Yamada, Kanako is aiming at participating in Japan Open , Which is the team event with Japan, Europe, and North America to be held at Saitama Super Arena, as her original schedule was.

    The article:
    http://sportsnavi.yahoo.co.jp/sports...00033-kyodo_sp


    For the information, Kanako doesn't need to skate at Chubu regionals to be qualified for Japan Nationals.

    This weekend they had Kinki regionals. According to the tweets by "Boomsports", which is the free paper about Kansai University and Kandaimae area, Tatsuki Machida won Kinki regionals by 241.19(SP 85.31 + FS 155.88).

    Machida's SP is to East of Eden. They seems to have had short interview with Machida
    Machida: I'm coming to have confidence in my quads. I didn't do any major mistake but I would be able to progress in my expression aspects. I've been with the idea of East of Eden for a year. I wan to express with my body the faith and the philosophy of the word "timshel" in the novel of "East of Eden".
    https://twitter.com/boomsports/statu...51477401206784

    Interview after his FS:
    Machida: It was a big step for Sochi and it gave me self-confidence. What I've been worked helped me. Glad with my new PB. I've been trained with the image of jumping compactly.
    https://twitter.com/boomsports/statu...75814875729920

    Machida: I think highly of the successful 3 quads I've done in SP+FS, however I couldn't reach the goals on stamina and expression sides. I skated imagining Oda was also competing at the same events. I want to polish my FS program like Firebird of my own.

    For more information, you can see Machida's photos and further information on Boomsports' facebook:

    Takahashi, Kozuka, Hanyu, Oda, Machida, Mura

    This is INSANE competition for 3 spots.

    Meanwhile Abzal Rakimgaliev who didn't qualify to skate the free skate at 2013 Worlds will likely get a free pass to Sochi because of Denis Ten's placement at that same competition.

    Go figure.

    Thanks very much, rosewood, for the updates from 2 of the 6 Regionals (Blocks) so far! I've re-posted your info in the new info/news/results thread for Japan's National Qualifying Competitions that I've started in the Kiss and Cry forum: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...results-links)

    According to Asahi Shinbun, a Japanese newspaper, Chris Reed has had serious injury. Maybe Reeds will withdraw from GPS and I'm even afraid it will take him months to recover if he needs to have an operation. My bad translation of the article is as follows:

    Chris with knee pain, "I didn't care if I died". Reeds fulfilled the heavy responsibility

    Chris dropped on his knees and hands just after finishing his free dance. "I did my best even though my knee hurt. I didn't care I died at the end", said Chris. Their performance was almost perfect, just slight minus points on their last lift.

    In August his right meniscus was torn by the impact of landing and he was even unable to run. He continued his training without telling Cathy, his older sister, since he didn't want to make her upset. He's going to examine whether an operation is needed.

    According to the blog entry of Reeds', it seems Chris chose not to have an operation on his knee. And also it seems they didn't change their original plan to participate in GSP. He was given advices by his doctors and he chose to taka a rest for a while and start his training for GPS. He said he'd already had three operations on his knee and it hadn't recovered fully, so he didn't want to have the fourth operation this time. (((Chris))) : Taking a rest, he thought his bone contusion would heal and it would take off his ache to some extent. Best whishes for him!

    NHK got their official youtube channel for NHK Trophy.
    http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPEQuR0iX14lKOAwS16KxkA

    They've already put two vids on the channnel. One of the videos shows their all-ad-bus and the small autograph event. The other shows the NHK Trophy Press Conference. I translated whole videos and posted on the Mao cheer thread in TC. Mao, Takahashi, Oda and Miyahara participated in the press conference and had rather long interviews. Also they wrote their autographs on the ad-bus. Please read the translations and understand what they said. It needed five to post the whole translations of the two videos, so please scroll down one by one.

    You can read all about Fumie Suguri in the Trash Can thread.

    Congratulations to Chika Suguri (Fumie's younger sister who used to skate competitively) on becoming a mom!

    (Published on September 27th):
    http://www.skatingjapan.or.jp/image_...yosentsuka.pdf

    Side note:
    "Seeded skaters" seem to be the skaters who won the medals at the Japan Nats 2012 and given the spots for Nats 2013 without participating in Regionals/Sectionals 2013.
    "Exceptional skaters" seem to be the skaters who are allowed not to participate in the specific competitions for the reason of participating in senior B-ckass competitions in a few weeks or JGPS.

    And all of the seeded skaters and the exceptional skaters are in the JSF's international pool, "designated skaters".

    Seeded Skaters
    Sr Ladies Mao Asada, Kanako Murakami, Satoko Miyahara
    Sr Mens Yuzuru Hanyu, Daisuke Takahashi, Takahito Mura
    Jr Ladies Riona Kato, Rika Hongo

    The Numbers of the Skaters Who Win Through Each Regional and Sectional
