    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?

    I mean seriously, what were they wearing? Those plastic capes were :yikes:.

    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 goodie. Than we can alert PETA about Fumie's :EVILLE: 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. :(

    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.

    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)
    16. Maiko Mitsuya (Aichi) =98.88 (SP=13, FS=19)
    17. Naoko Okuma (Okayama) =98.60 (SP=18, FS=14)
    18. Naoko Hama (Tottori) =98.36 (SP=17, FS=16)
    19. Kotoha Asami (Saitama) =97.43 (SP=21, FS=13)

    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. :saint:

    Thanks Akira, we can always count on good information about the Japanese skating from you. :)

    I don't know what to say to the fact that Suzuki had a seemingly rough skate so close to 4CCs... she didn't skate well at Nationals either.
  22. Akira Andrea

    Akira Andrea Well-Known Member

    I'm anxious for her slump so close to the 4CC certainly, too, but I think that the player has participated to it with an easy feeling as if participating to the ice show or the exhibition, because the skating competition of the national skating festival of Japan is the isolated domestic event which isn't related to the Japan Nationals or the Worlds at all. Therefore, I think that we may not need to worry about her result in the case of this event, too. Or I would like to dare to think like that.

    shah Shhh... shhh...

    Suguri's result is not that bad!
    btw, I haven't seen anything inappropriate in her behaviour during the medal ceremony. maybe overall she's not that eville :D.

    one more thing - Aki Sawada didn't retire? colour me surprised!!!

    I didn't even notice her name further down the standings. Thank you for pointing that out! We were just talking about her when we went over the selection process for the 2006 Olympics and her finishing 7th behind Ando...Had no idea she was still competing, but she is actually only 24, even though it feels like she's been around forever.

    Aki Sawada!!! Hard to believe she went to 4CC and made the Grand Prix not so long ago. Also what happened to Nana Takeda?
  26. Alex Forrest

    Alex Forrest Banned Member

    I know, and some say I am hard on poor Fumie, but she only placed 7th behind Haruka Imai, Akiko Suzuki, Satsuki Mura, Yuki Nishino, Shion Kokubu, and Kana Muramoto. Once she gets past these world class competitors, the Olympic gold is right there for the taking. If only a sponsor could give her two hundred thousand american dollars to support her gift.

    Poor Fumie....

    Sawada Aki retired from the eligible skater at 2011 certainly, but it may not necessarily be required as the qualification for participating to the event to be the eligible skater of JSF or ISU, because the figure skating competition of the national sports festival of Japan is an isolated domestic event which is not the official event of JSF.

    There was her message in a blog of figure skating.
    At January 28th, 2013, Aki Sawada said, "Thank you very much for a lot of cheering. Thank you very much for coaching me, to the coach Takeshi Honda and the coach Mamiko Yamai. It is my second retirement today. I was glad to skate delightfully."
