    News High ambitions for Takahashi and Tran

    Narumi Takahashi and Mervin Tran are the second Japanese pair team to win a medal at an ISU Championships. The duo earned the silver medal at the 2010 World Junior Figure Championships in The Hague. The first Japanese pair was Yuko Kawaguchi with Russian partner Alexander Markuntsov, who achieved the same at Junior Worlds nine years ago when Kawaguchi still represented Japan.

    I am excited to see what the future has in store for them (^--^ ). They really love what they're doing, and every season you can see a huge improvement in them.

    Thank you so much for this article!



    I noticed big improvement last season and I'm curious to see how they'll do as seniors! Good luck, Narumi & Mervin!

    They are so adoreable. I love them. I hope they have a really good career. It is unfortunate they might never be able to skate at an Olympics.

    But he represents Japan with his partner even if he doesn't have Japanese citizenship.
