The sudden change of the camera angle to the mascot character's back while Suguri was on the podium looks like the camera man tried not to shoot what she did there and it just looks so strange and insane!
I think those who got ignored by her have something in common but I'm not sure what it is. Higher finishers? Skaters with higher world rankings?

Oh for the days when skaters did it right. Sonia would have worn an ankle length ermine coat.
So today, I was on my way home from work and I saw Fumie push an old lady whilst crossing the street!!! She almost fell and Fumie just ignored her and walked on.
(Disclaimer: This might or might not be true)
My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.
The event was held by team match style between the 16 teams composed by each two skaters who represented each prefecture.
These 16 prefecture teams are upper 8 teams in the said event in last season and 8 teams which got the qualification in the qualification meeting before the event.
The competition was scored by 'the ISU Judging System'.
On the total numerical value of the last ranking of two players who have participated in the event, the team which got the smaller value becomes the higher place.
When the value is the same, the team which contains a higher ranking player in the individual result becomes a higher place.
It is the team competition which the ranking of each team is fixed by the total of the results of two players of each team after the 32 participation players competed in the short program and the upper 24 players competed in the free skating.

1. Tokyo (Imai, Nishino) =5 Points

I hate the title of this thread.
Thanks Akira, we can always count on good information about the Japanese skating from you.
