    (Updated) Denis Ten Murdered: was stabbed in the thigh

    Thank you for the update. I still can't believe we will no longer hear competition announcers say, "Denis Ten, Kazakhstan" again.

    Who's planning to go to Saitama for Worlds 2019?

    Breakfast club, thanks for the information. This doesn't look promising but I really want to go. Luckily my hotel reservation could be canceled without a penalty. Jasperboy, I envy you! Well if I can't go to worlds, at least I'll have more funds for US nationals and whatever is going on in...

    Who's planning to go to Saitama for Worlds 2019?

    So it's now Oct. 2nd and the tickets are still not available for purchase on the English website. I wonder if the best seats are going to the local fans first, and then the rest of us get the leftovers?

    Who's planning to go to Saitama for Worlds 2019?

    Just checked the English website and the tickets aren't for sale yet. Nothing new. I'll keep checking every couple of days. Meanwhile, my efforts to learn Japanese are going ok. I can say such useful things such as, I don't take milk or sugar with my coffee!

    Who's planning to go to Saitama for Worlds 2019?

    Thank you again for this information. I guess I'll be visiting their webpage everyday starting at the end of this month.

    Who's planning to go to Saitama for Worlds 2019?

    Thanks rosewood! So I wonder when we'll be able to actually buy the tickets on the website. The prices seem ok, and I'm intent on going. :)

    Mao Asada's 'Thanks Tour' (Starting from May 2018)

    Wow, what a success for them to get so many sponsors. This goes to show that having smaller shows in local venues, at prices families and students can afford, can spread the popularity of skating. I still want to see Takahito Mura and Ernesto Martinez's entire performances. They should have a...

    Aretha Franklin and skating

    How did I miss this? Sasha Cohen skating to Chain of Fools as Aretha sings at Fashion on Ice, 2011: https://youtu.be/ZcP45Fvp8Xc As a fan who's sung Aretha Franklin songs very poorly at karaoke, I thank Ms. Franklin for all her awesome songs and musical genius! Let's keep skating to her music.

    Mao Asada's 'Thanks Tour' (Starting from May 2018)

    The tour looks to be a smashing success since they've added additional stops and Mura got his BMW. In a carsensor.net article this spring, he said he was going to do all he could to make the tour successful, and he hoped to reward himself with a BMW. He and Mao conducted a skating clinic for...

    Japanese figure skating 2018-19 season news & updates

    Same here. I looked forward to watching them and was thrilled when they won a medal at 4 Continents. They looked so good last season, and how will they find better partners? What a shame that they have split.

    (Updated) Denis Ten Murdered: was stabbed in the thigh

    Thank you for these translations! Denis was such a remarkable person. This documentary has interviews with his friends, coaches, and people who knew him outside of the skating world. Denis was so multi-talented and a very hard worker. Such a loss. It is also incredible that Alexei Yagudin was...

    Grant Hochstein has retired: “Skating has been more than just a sport; it has shaped me into who I am as a person.”

    No, she hasn't officially announced anything although she's coaching along with Grant. Seeing how dismal the Chinese female skaters have been, perhaps Caroline has been courted to compete for China??? (Just totally speculating.) Her triple loop-triple loop is pretty impressive, and she can still...

    Vincent Zhou cheer thread

    Vincent's looking good in that clip! He has lost the gangly, stiff look from last season. Can't wait to see the whole program.
