    Kiira Korpi threw the first ball in a Korean baseball game.

    Here is the clip!

    She threw a perfect inside corner strike with off speed change-up.

    I wish there were more fans in the stand. (maybe due to the weather)

    I'm guessing she's staying few more days in Korea because of the flight delay caused by volcanic ash?
    Well, I hope she will have more fun in Seoul.

    Oh, she looks cute and athletic. I am sure that she'll increase a lot of fans in Korea with this appearance!

    Mai Asada, Kanako Murakami, and Daisuke Takahashi did the same thing in Japan, too. Daisuke was a bit surprising pick to me. A lot of times, they prefer female athletes and Mai and Kanako are the typical types to be picked. This reminded me of discussions in many of the GS threads confirming the societal general perspective that FS has always been considered a "feminine" sport. Dai seems to represent one of the typical stereotypes of male skaters: small, as pretty as a hero in girls' comic books, narsistic, talks softly, and wears flamboyant costumes with frills, feathers, and sequins. To see him in a baseball ground felt like a bit out of place. I basically find him looking most natural in female-dominant settings. Perhaps even more so if this had been in the US.

    There's also an interview in a Korean newspaper that Kiira is hoping that Yuna will continue to compete.

    Thank you! She is absolutely attractive. I don't know why, but sometimes she reminds me Grace Kelly.
