    Must be something to do with speed and edges .. the only words I can understand from Honda.

    STARushka, when you said you sat in front of the judges, do you mean the opposite side of the rink facing the judges?

    Emdee, the COI is so exciting. Four great Canadian male skaters: Kurt, Patrick, Elvis and Jeff. Have fun and please report back here.

    Agree and a bit envious concerning COI

    Sorry I have no time translate it, but here is a very nice article on Patrick from Nikkei Shimbun this morning.

    The commentator said, "Such splendid steps with his whole body's movement, dynamic jumps executed with high speed, skating as if his edges were licking the ice, those are Patrick's trademarks. And the key to such accomplishments is, according to Mr. Orser, skating skill. If a skater improve his skating skill, he can get high marks regarding both technique and presentation."

    Mr. Honda ;"Patrick never loses speed while doing steps. Each of his movements is so smooth and his edges are incredibly tilted, which we call deep edges."

    Pardon me my awkwardness, as I translated this roughly.

    Takeshi Honda always admires Patrick's amazing skating skill

    I cannot understand why Ms Guzman hasn't corrected those obvious errors now.

    Thank you so much, Aprilsnowy! Your English is very good, better than mine at least.

    Thank you very much Aprilsnowy for taking the time to translate for us. I am grateful and appreciative of your kindness. Our Japan bureau is I am happy that fellow skaters acknowledged Patrick's skating skills. Excited I may be for Patrick heading towards 2014 Sochi, sometimes I feel a wee bit sad that he may retire after that. So I tell myself that I am going to enjoy whatever he brings to competition now and 'ride the journey with him' including biting my finger nails each time he competes.

    STARushka.... I am going to freeze the vid to look for you!

    Thanks Deedee1 for the article. Nice of you to post it here. I will run it through GoogleChrome on another computer later.

    Maybe some day we ChanFans can get together for an international ChanFan meeting! Australia Bureau' doors are always opened if any of Bureau Representatives come to Australia!

    Any rep from USA? South Korea? Not sure where some of us are from? SGrand?
