. . . found some different videos. I hope they don't get taken down as well.

Rhythm Dance
Free Dance
As I feared, the second set of videos that I linked previously are now "unavailable" also.

Have found another video (only their FD) from NHK: NHK FD .


RD from Japan Nationals taking place this weekend. 2nd Place!

They've improved a lot in only a month and look considerably more relaxed compared to their performances at NHK. From what I've read elsewhere, she may have been injured during a fall in practice. Not sure of the exact nature of the injury. Looks as if they powered through the performance. Great start to the competition.

(View the videos quickly! No telling when these^ will become "unavailable for viewing.")

Thank you! The link didn't open in English so I put it through Google-translate myself with not fully comprehensible results. But I get that they can learn from this event and are happy with their coaches and each other. One question - the Google-translation said something about doing this part-time (ice dance) - is either of them working at something else too? I assumed they were doing this more or less full time.

Google translates "spare time" but Dai actually says "Takahashi: I think I was able to do this well in no time" meaning he is doing well, considring the litte time he's been doing it and training.

But it's interesting to know that Daisuke has been working as an interior designer in his spare time, since 2018, for real estate company Sky Court Ltd, owned by Miwa Nishida's family. His project is called D-color. He was total coordinator and designed the interior and exterior of a 13-storey condo known as the D-Tower (D-iberté Asakusa) in Tokyo. A red "d" is visible on the top floor. All the apartments sold-out before it was even completed.

Accidentally, just today he announced the completion of a second project of renovation of buildings. He had been working on that remotely from Florida in his spare time while trining there. He says he finds it relaxing, and keeps his mind off figure skating, thus allowing a perfect balance.

Here is the link if you are intetested:

Kana/Dai have withdrawn as substitutes for Worlds. Here is Olympic channel article.

That's a shame but given that submitting videos for TES minimums would only be for Worlds and they aren't likely to be called up to replace K/K, I think it makes sense for them to decline the opportunity and give the Worlds alternate spot to Fukase/Cho.
