    Tatsuki Machida

    Japanese figure skater Tatsuki Machida (町田 樹 Machida Tatsuki) was born on March 9, 1990, in Kawasaki, Kanagawa, Japan.

    I've liked him for a long time now but as far as his results go he's had his ups and downs. This year I hope he's able to solve whatever health issues he has by nationals and is able to take the 3rd (or possibly 2nd!) spot at the Olympics.

    I just love his dedication to his programs and how in to them he gets. Even though he definitely admires Daisuke I like how he's different from him and stands out in his own way.

    “Last season at Worlds he said ‘I will retire as an athlete and from now on I will become an artist’. We’ve always battled against each other and I thought of him as a comrade so I more or less had a hunch. It’s thanks to him that even my way of thinking about my performances has changed. The fact that Machida-senshu retired makes me feel very, very sad and lonely but at the same time I honestly want to say ‘you’ve worked hard’ and ‘thank you so much for everything you did up until now’. Those are the kind of feelings I have in my heart.”

    Kudos to Tatsuki for winning 2 GPs and advancing to GP Final in Japan! Just impressive, isn't it?! So glad he has such a great season so far. Good luck to Tatsuki at GPF and the Nats.

    This guy is a bookie's nightmare. No one expected him to be the highest ranking Japanese man in the GP circuit. I hope he's able to get in a solid performance at nationals.

    Good to know he's rising to the occassion. Looking at his past two skates, he does stand a chance in making it. It's not easy to break into the favourites' domain but he did a great job and I am sure he worked very hard for it. Good luck to Machida.

    Very very interesting interview with Tatsuki, though all in Japanese and pretty long.

    ^Tatuski is quite a character, good read. Machida has proven himself this season as a contender
    and imo he would be an asset for the Men's Team in Sochi.

    What he says is, hmm, very philosophical for an athlete, isn't it?

    Congratulations on your Silver World medal, Tatsuki. You skated 2 great programs and you truly won the Gold for me.

    Tatsuki sort of sneaked up on me this season and I ended becoming a fan though he is now a serious threat to Yuzuru's world domination. How can you not love a skater who engineered a renaissance in his skating career in his 20s, skates with passion and flair, can choreograph his exhibition, and knows how to strike the most dramatic poses apres skating? And his knowing "timshel" and using it in a sentence rather sealed the deal for me :-).

    I really hope he continues until the next Olympics, and I look forward to more magnificent performances from him.

    I must be honest and say that it took me awhile to appreciate Tatsuki. I am a huge fan of Daisuke and Yuzuru, so perhaps unfairly slotted him as the "lesser" of the Japanese men (not to say bad at ALL - but not so charismatic as the others, plus I don't really like Firebird ). However, after watching him at Worlds, I'm so impressed. He has a lovely personality, great attitude and much like Daisuke, he is an excellent interpreter of music. And despite being the dark horse, he put his all into the competition and had a terrific chance of beating the Golden Child. Again, I love Yuzuru to death, but there is room in my heart for plenty of skaters of all types, and if Tatsuki had taken gold I would not have felt it was undeserved.
