(Ross Miner, right after winning the bronze at NHK):
"It's AMAZING to skate in Japan, with a sold-out stadium. I don't think there's a seat left. I heard that the men's sold out in three minutes after they put up the tickets. That's incredible.
"It's so cool to come here and have fans that are so knowledgeable about skating, and also so polite. It's great to come to Japan."
Well it's good to know that skating is thriving somewhere, especially after witnessing first-hand the dismal turnout in Ontario for Skate America.
