    Shizuka Arakawa got married on her birthday!

    Dailysports article published today
    my rough translation

    Shizuka Arakawa married an ordinary man on her birthday: "The day to take a new step."

    On her birthday, December 29th, Shizuka Arakawa(at the age of 32), the ladies' figure skating gold medalist in Torino Olympics, submitted a notification of marriage with an ordinary man with whom she has been dating for some time.

    "Today is my 32nd birthday and also the day to take a new step. I submitted a notification of marriage with a person with whom I've been dating," Arakawa announced on her own handwriting fax message. "I'm very happy to stand in the new starting line of my life," she seemed very pleased.

    Reportedly Arakawa kissed a surgeon on the street in March. "I'm old enough to do such sort of things,""The happiest time in one's life is during honeymoon. When? Hope it's coming soon," she talked about her hope for marriage in an event in May.

    She carried out her words in the end of this year. Since she won the Olympic gold medal by training hard, "So that I can make a happy and warm home, I'll do my best to play my role and be responsible for things," she wrote about her thoughts about the "another gold medal".


    Congraturations!

    Congrats to the newly wed. Wishing them happiness always.

    I am curious? Why the emphasis on 'ordinary' man?

    Japanese media often use this phrase. There is no intention to emphasis. It just means he's not a public figure, so you can't expect to see their two-shot on TV.

    This is no "ordinary man." This is the man that captured the Voidy Swan's heart.

    I want a picture of the beautiful Shiz and her guy ASAP. Wishing them both a long and happy life together.

    Yay! Congrats to her! (This is so weird...I was googling her and a few other skaters yesterday, trying to find out if they were married/dating anyone, and I could find nothing on Shizuka! LOL)

    LOL. They haven't had a wedding ceremony yet. By the way, I hear her husband is a doctor.

    What music will be used at the wedding? I am quite sure it will be Nessun Dorma.

    Congrats to her. It's always nice to see skaters that I liked as competitive skaters transition to a next stage that engages them and makes them happy.

    Reportedly Arakawa kissed a surgeon on the street in March.

    Is this another way of saying that the guy she (will) marry is a doctor?

    Because a surgeon is such an ordinary occupation Congratulations to Shizza!
