I tranlated this Dai-chan's interview after LP into English. I hope you enjoy it!!
http://sportsnavi.yahoo.co.jp/other/headlines/skate/20071202-00000019-spnavi-spo.html

(Sorry for my imperfect English. But it was good English practice for me!! Until when Dai-chan win at Vancouver my English will improve like his quads. hahaha Razz Razz )

--You won second consecutive championship at NHK Trophy.

I'm happy wining second consecutive championship but the content wasn't as good as the previous time. I fell on the quad and also I couldn't do 2 quads. Regrettable result. I wanted to grab the victory. I thought such kind of feeling was neccessary for me. It's not satisfactory win in content. Tomas succeeded a clean quad even though he also made mistake. I feel chagrined. (You placed second with small margin after SP?) I didn't care that smll margin. I tried to do just what I have done so far.


--How did you spend time after morning practice?

I returned, had lunch, set may hair and came back here. I didn't have much time so I had lunch and took a nap in a hurry. I ate "katayakisoba" at a restaurant because I like food with sticky sauce. (????)


--Yesterday Miki Ando was so nervous that she failed in the ladies competition. How did you concentrate on the game?

Actually I felt nervous seeing Miki Ando but I have had such experience many times. I believed what have I practiced and I skated trying to do what I could do, not any more than it.


--You did only one quad.

Quad jumps requires me concentration and I lose physical strength when I fail. There are some skater who are better at quad than 3A. But I can't if I am asked to do it at the beginning the morning proctice. I can do it when I'm in good condition. I'm still not a good quad jumper. It is necessary for me to practice more and jump a lot of quads. I feel it is difficult even now.

After SP I talked with Morozov. There are still 3 important competition after this.(GPF, Japan National, World) Considering my physical strength I wonder I should try it here or not. And also I considersed that my quad was bit off comparing with it in peak which came too earlier. I was in the best condition the day before SP. I'd like to adjust it well for the future.

I didn't worry at all about yesterday's fall on 3A. I felt good in the 6 minutes practice. Personally I wanted to do 2 quads but Nicolai said to me "One quad today." while he saw my morning practice. I think he thought going to GPF was more important. It would be just reckless thing to do it without enough preparation. I was ready but also still anxious. I decided to do what he told me because he had more experiences of games than me, I wanted to go to GPF and I placed second in SP.


--I think 3F instead of a quad made you possible to do one more combination jump.

I knew I had to add one more combination jump. I was intending to do it at the last lutz. But I felt "No. it's better not to add combo." when I landed so I stopped doing it.


--What are the tasks ahead of you? How will you improve your steps?

I got 81 points in TES even with a fall on 4T. It might be because it is here in Japan though. I'm sure now I will be able to get more points if I skate clean. But to do 2 quads I have to become more successful in practice. One of spins was Level 2 again. Because of the lack of physical strength it was judged as underrotaion. I have a problem in steps too that I can't move my body widely due to the lack of strength. This time I was more tired than Skate America. I tried best to move my legs in step when I heard the cheer from the audience. It is difficult for me to skate more in practice because competitions will be held continuously. I will have to adjust to get more physical strength.


-- You said "I become able to put my performance into shape." on TV interview.

Did I say such thing? (laugh) Though I made big mistakes, but two at a maximam. I become not to make 3 or 4 mistakes at a time. It might not be actully "put my performance into shape" but I think I don't ruin my performance recently comparing with before when I was really bad. I didn't expected the fall on quad but I could switch my mind immediately.


--About Japan National Championships.

Japan National Championships is very important game to get a ticket to World Championships. At this game Oda will come back so I will have to be attentive. I'd like to try my best to win every game. (Is Oda special for you?) No it is not like special but I concern about to what content he has worked out.

Today I saw TV program "Get Sport" featuring Dai-chan. Shizuka Arakawa commented about him in it. It was SO NICE comment! I'll introduce you it. Very Happy Very Happy
I think you can see this video on youtube soon. (Thank you everytime s********!!! )


"Put simply. he is a very gifted skater. He can use his body with perfect control. I really envy him. I sometimes lose my self-confidence when I practice with him. He is a such skater who make me think like this. I think male skaters who compete with him think him as a very fearsome rival."

Thank you Shizuka! I love you I love you I love you

In the program Dai-chan said that he thought he had to move on forward when he won shilver medal at Worlds 07. So he is challenging new things this season.


GO Dai-chan!!! cheers cheers

Thank you for the translation, miyu! flower

I was wondering to what he said in that interview. And now I know, thanks to you.

I also googled the "katayakisoba" just to see how it looks like ;-)
It does look yummy.

And of course I like what Shizuka says about Daisuke.

It's so kind by Daisuke saying that audience's cheer spur him on doing better.
Daisuke, you can be sure you'll heard my cheer in Torino! cheers

I think you can fine the same dish or somethink like that at a Chinese restaurant. Have a try!! Wink Wink

Yay!! We know how much you love Dai-chan, of course!!! Cool Cool

What I particilary impressed was how good he is at controling his mental aspect. Comparing with Miki** who got confused and couldn't focus on skating after Morozov advised not to do 3-3, it seemed Dai-chan kept his mind calm and made a cool decision considering the effects of it after Morozov advised the same thing to him even though he wanted to try 2 quads. Very clever guy, isn't he!! bounce bounce

Thanks as always Leode for the information about NHK!

Thank you so much miyu for the wonderful translation of Daisuke's interview! I really loved it.

You are so cute miyu! I love you Your English and Daisuke's quads are already pretty good, but I'm sure that by 2010 (Vancouver) they'll be even more awesome. flower

I love Shizuka and even more so now because of her incredible comments about Daisuke's skating. She's pretty terrific and amazing herself too. Very Happy

And it's so true that Daisuke's getting stronger mentally (he didn't let seeing Miki's falls affect him in his LP) and he's in general more confident now. He really is becoming more and more like a champion (this takes both physical and mental abilities).
