I love Everything about akiko I hope her last season will be her best. Her programs last season were my favorite. I also love her attitude, when she is on the podium no matter the color of the medal she seems so happy and so greatful to be there.
I also love her story of not giving up and it has paid up, she will retire knowing that she did her best. I would love to see akiko on the podium, but if it doesnt happen, she will go out as a champion in life for overcoming so many things
I really didn't understand fully the article
Context clues mates! I love Akiko and I wish her all the best next season!
I am just dying to see her skate to "Phantom of The Opera". I think she is the skater with the fire , grace and power to be the perfect Christine on the ice.
Her musical interpretation is just top notch.
This is her latest skate from an exhibition.
agreed, she's in a rare group. Right now only Osmund skates like a real seasoned performer. It would be great to see Akiko get the OGM. She is never imo over marked , but undermarked.
She is truly a gem! A rare gift to the sport. A supreme artist. I need to go to the World Championships in Saitama to watch her! I am so excited to see her skate "The Phantom of the Opera". Pasquale and Akiko are a match made in heaven. Massimo is also glorious.
Akiko's soul becomes one with the music. The connection she gets sends chills down the spine.
Thanks for the video links. I just love Akiko!
Akiko's longevity in the sport is quite exceptional and impressive. I wonder what she has done to be able to continue at such a high level for such a long period of time. I know that she had some difficult times and health issues when she was younger. She seems to have found the keys to her sustainability. Kudos to her for that
