    I wish there were a way for some country like, say, Belgium to adopt Akiko for about four years. Then she'd be assured of a spot at the Games. It would be a crying shame not only for her to miss the Games but for us to miss out on her presence there.

    Here are photos from Friends on Ice rehearsal:

    Suzuki skated her new SP, and a Riverdance collaboration with Takeshi Honda.

    You can see a bit of the new SP from 0:10. The music sounds like Brian Setzer version of Malaguena.

    That is one of the best moments of skating for me! What a moment!

    Battling anorexia and fighting to be a part of the Japanese team. It was so hard to get there because Mao, Miki, Yukari and Fumie were all there! She was inspired by Shizuka and she dreamed all her life that she would be an Olympian and she made it. I love Kanako's kindness as well!

    I love Akiko so much! I love her balletic arms, musicality, passion and commitment to the sport! She just keeps getting better and better! I hope she gets the PCS scores and high scores she deserves for her beautiful skating!

    I'm so happy that she is a WORLD BRONZE MEDALIST now! It's like take that to all her detractors in JSF.

    Her Andalucia program from 2009-2010 Japanese Nationals was also spellbinding!

    Her 2009 LP from Japanese Nationals was simply incredible!

    Her "Dark Eyes" free skate from 2009 Finlandia was something to behold! Flawless!

    They skated to Riverdance at Friends on Ice 2012 together.
    Takeshi seems to have lost a couple of pounds, doesn't he? Looks slimmer.

    Friends on Ice is scheduled to be aired on Sep 29 (part 1) and Oct 6 (part 2) in Japan. Then someone will put Akiko's performance on YT after that.

    According to those who got to see her SP (Kill Bill) and LP (cirque de soleil's O) at FOI, the programs this season are going to be Akiko's 'signature' programs of her competitive career, they say.
