    Translating to English from Japanese.
    For the public performance from tomorrow, the rehearsal was held today.
    Some 20 domestic and oversea players, such as 'Shizuka Arakawa who is the gold medalist of Turin Olympics' and 'Yuzuru Hanyu who is expected to get a medal in Sochi Olympics next year', participated to the rehearsal.
    They faced the rehearsal so as to ascertain the condition of the rink elaborately.
    The person who got attention also among them was Miki Ando who appeared to the public place for the first time after releasing the childbirth. She practiced the Jump etc. repeatedly with the relaxing look.

    Miki Ando said, "Because, in any competition also, I had not been nailed to the 100 percent jump from the first, I think that it is good if I can advance forward at one step or even at the half step in a day after doing clear from the such part".

    I heard Wilson and Orser are involved in FaOI as choreographers. If so, I think it's rare for them to visit Japan to choreograph show numbers in these couple of years, right?

    According to Yuzuru Hanyu Forum he was the closer of today's show. He skated to a collaboration number with AI "Story". He was in a good shape today and in a quad battle in the finale he went for 4T-3A as always and landed it clean.
    You can see what other skaters skated to there

    Amazing thing is the people there are not native Japanese speakers, most of them don't know a word of Japanese except for one member or two. I'm always astonished at how they are eager and enthusiastic in collecting infos, news , clips, etc of him using online translations. Their speed of updates is one of the fastest among Hanyu fans in the world imo.
