Saw a video of part of the programme from Friends on Ice - not thrilled with the pink costume, but I hope they have others for competition.

The pink costumes are for their exhibition to Sam Smith's "Love goes", not their RD fortunately. They probably don't have those ready yet. :)


ETA: These are the provisional costumes they performed their RD in today:

According to this interview of Rikako Fukase by a school publication, she's no longer skating as an ice dancer. Instead, she's joining a Canadian synchronize skating team since May: https://www.daito.ac.jp/100/details_00475.html

(And it seems that her former partner, Oliver Cho, has retired from the competition).

Adding: from the interview Rikako mentions that the synchro-team she joins has been to World Championship recently...but I'm not quite familiar with synchronize skating to know which team it is.

Since I think KanaDai's fan fest isn't frequented as much as this one - here's their RD from today's Friends on Ice live broadcast:


It's still early stages and the choreo isn't finished (e.g. they haven't incorporated the lift yet), but whoa that's some high energy, fun program with lots of potential! Definitely makes me wanna move! :dance3:I'm looking forward to its evolution throughout the season.

I enjoy KidaMori very much. They already bring so many qualities to the table (smooth skating skills, speed, good transitions). 🥰 If the federation invests in them, they might have a bright future.

Looks like the video has been removed from YouTube because it was taken from cable broadcasting.
Here is a video from terrestrial broadcasting which was posted later.

Miyu Yunoki & Shoya Ichihashi placed 10th at Nebelhorn Trophy, in their international debut.

Here is their Free Skate:

They earned TES minimums in both programs to be eligible for 2023 Four Continents :) (also reaching Worlds TES for the FS)
