The Nationals is very important for all skaters in many countries. To get selected to the Worlds. But once every four years, it becomes a very special competition. To grab their own spot for the Olympic Games. To get to compete at The Games is simply a dream for any athletes in the world. With such depths of the current Men and Ladies disciplines, J-Nats is going to be the most exciting but also nailbiting for sure. And is going to be the final Nats to compete for those who already announced their planned retirement after this season, sadly. Whatever its outcome shall be, it will be very emotional for these skaters and its fans. So, let's hope for the best for all skaters and make a wish to Santa Claus!
Here goes mine. I have so many.
1) All skaters to skate with all their heart and soul, and never to give up performing till the very end, with mistakes or not!
2) Fair enough judging. That we mostly can agree on. No holding up big time or holding down big time, please!
3) No More Injuries. Daisuke and Chris Reed in particular; they suffered more than enough already.
4) Crowd to cheer for every skaters and to be supportive to them throughout, regardless of whom they root for the most.
