SkateFiguring took the violet pill
It's hard to imagine the stress and emotional roller coaster these Japanese skaters went through since the competition. Well, maybe since before the competition and still something to deal with. Poor Oda was dealt the definitive blow right off. Dai and Koz had to endure the maybe agonizing uncertainty. Now Dai can celebrate and begin his preparation and Kozuka has to nurse the pain and somehow rebound.
It's not easy being a top athlete.
