    it is team competition by prefecture,(something like states in US,or province in Canada)
    so individual skaters names are not called but team names(prefecture names)are called.

    Yes. All the other ladies hugged each other.
    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?

    She has surely started punching the other skaters in a fit of rage - the evil psychopath that she is - but the cameraman has conspired to protect her obviously false and deceptive public image and started shooting the mascot instead.

    Oh for the days when skaters did it right. Sonia would have worn an ankle length ermine coat.

    Too right. Maybe Tat could donate some of hers.

    Oh goodie. Than we can alert PETA about Fumie's fur-wearing ways, in addition to her unacceptable post-competition hugging etiquette.

    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)

    Hmmm...Surya, bitchslapping, Fumie fighting back? I think we might be onto something that would improve skating ratings in the US after all.
    And those warm-up flood jackets did look *a lot* like the stuff boxers wear before matches.

    I find this hard to believe. Now if you had said she actually knocked the old lady down, kicked her cane into traffic, and stole her purse, then I would believe it. The Anti-Christ has to meet certain standards of behaviour, after all.
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    She's having hard enough time in this thread as it is, so I wanted to spare the more grisly details.

    This is the figure skating event on the national sports festival of Japan.
    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.

    The places of the prefecture teams
    1. Tokyo (Imai, Nishino) =5 Points
    2. Hyogo (Muramoto, Muramoto) =9 points
    3. Aichi (Suzuki, Mitsuya) =18 points
    4. Hokkaido (Kokubu, Sasaki) =19 points
    5. kanagawa (Suguri, Ishii) =20 points
    6. Kyoto (Inoue, Sawada) =22 points
    7. Hiroshima (Kono, Tsubota) =24 points
    8. Saitama (Hasegawa, Asami) =27 points
    omitting the rest

    The results of the indibidual players
    1. Haruka Imai (Tokyo) =175.83 (SP=1, FS=1)
    2. Akiko Suzuki (Aichi) =158.17 (SP=2, FS=3)
    3. Satsuki Muramoto (Hyogo) =155.04 (SP=6, FS=2)
    4. Yuki Nishino (Tokyo) =149.69 (SP=3, FS=4)
    5. Shion Kokubu (Hokkaido) =133.05 (SP=7, FS=5)
    6. Kana Muramoto (Hyogo) =133.04 (SP=5, FS=7)
    7. Fumie Suguri (Kanagawa ) =132.74 (SP=4, FS=8)
    8. Haruka Hasegawa (Saitama) =124.13 (SP=9, FS=6)
    9. Yuka Kono (Hiroshima) =120.49 (SP=8, FS=11)
    10. Haruka Inoue (Kyoto) =118.25 (SP=10, FS=10)
    11. Hikari Nasuno (Nagano) =118.07 (SP=11, FS=9)
    12. Aki Sawada (Kyoto) =110.14 (SP=12, FS=12)
    13. Ayaka Ishii (Kanagawa) =100.78 (SP=15, FS=15)
    14. Risa Sasaki (Hokkaido) =99.66 (SP=22, FS=13)
    15. Yoshiko Tsubota (Hiroshima) =99.18 (SP=16, FS=18)

    Thank you very much for the detailed explanation Akira Andrea.

    Are Satsuki and Kana Muramoto related?

    I know! But I am feeling so sorry for poor poor poor Fumie that I decided to make a very special exception and be a little gentler this time.

    Yes, they are famous as the sibling skaters in Japan.
    Satsuki is elder sister and Kana is younger sister.
