The men's event at Skate America will be thrilling! Mini Japan Nationals!!
I love the haircut. Good to see him so happy. Please let him perform without big mistakes, skating god!
Thanks for posting, demarinis!
Very pleased to know his 3As are stable this season it seems. Hope he can hit them perfectly at SA and other comps. Fingers crossed! Best of luck to Dai and Mao at SA!
I love that EX, really glad he brought it back.
Thanks for posting his performances at SA, demarinis! One word: Beautiful! I even liked his SP performance sans jump mistakes now.
A good news to those who are concerned about Dai at SA: he was hitting a lot of jumps including 4T and 3A, and landed them during EX practice, according to reports from his fans in Detroit.
One thing that makes me sort of 'relieved' is looking at Dai and his coaches in the KdC after both SP and LP, and reading newspaper articles in Japanese, his team, the Feds people and media all seemed to know/understand the reason(s) he 'had to' miss a number of jumps, though his team does not want to reveal it to public obviously.
Whatever the reason(s) is/are, I would like to stay positive as his fans, and just hope Dai and his team not to rush anything and take enough time to fix it or to heal it fully/completely. The season has just started. The Nats is 2 months away. Lots of time. No worries.
For a change, here's a very cute Dai for you all! : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xq3Gx2KUQ04
Oh and my only complaint should be...Dai I would have loved you more if you could have landed that quad in your actual SP, not during EX practice! Get well soon, Daisuke!!!
Nice mini english interview with Tanith, we don't get much of that.
Must be feeling better a bit now, everyone, huh? hope so. Good night!
Thanks for all the links and information, Deedee. I will also remain hopeful about Dai's season. There's no one like him, and I will trust that whatever is amiss can recover. He's already done more than most skaters to enrich the sport, but we fans are greedy and want even more skating from him. I will cross fingers that this is what we get. Hope you're having sweet dreams, Deedee!
