Dai-chan was given a graduation certificate at the entrance ceremony of Kansai University on 1st April because he couldn't attend at the graduation ceremony due to Wolrd Figure Skating Championships.

He was also given Special Achievement Awards with a specially-made university gown and medal. The head of the university gave him them saying "We give you a gold medal from Kansai University."

He has entered the graduate school of Kansai Univ. He said "I'd like to go to Vancouver with Nobunari Oda (who is also a student of Kansai Univ.) while I'm in school."


Don't you think he got a bit of weight???? Razz Razz Razz

I saw this on FSU. Congrats, Daisuke!! cheers cheers

The gown is pretty massive considering how small Dai is! In the U.S., undergrads don't wear anything like that!

Me too! I remember he said he wanted to go to the Olympics with Nobu a couple of years ago and I'm glad he still does. I hope they will get a chance to talk to each other again soon! Smile

Hi, thanks very much for the good news, miyu!

Thank you for the graduation video too, Leode!

I just want to post the entire quote from Daisuke about Nobunari. It's from fsuniverse.com (posted by MINAM).

Quote :
He has enrolled in the graduate school from April. Asked what his future goal is, Takahashi replied "To skate in Vancouver Olympics with (Nobunari) Oda-kun. We both did a lot for Kansai-University, it would be great if we could win Gold and Silver."

It's so kind of him to say this.

LOL, glorydave and swandie!!

Graduation from college is indeed a huge achievement for Daisuke and I guess it's now on to graduate school for him (time has seemed to move so fast).

I just watched the vid of the graduation ceremony. Wow, this is indeed a really valueable video. I cannot believe that it's available for watching online. I feel quite proud of him while watching it (to be acknowledged this way is surely quite an honor for him).

If it were me, I would be so scared and embarrased to go on the stage and receive an award/give a speech like Daisuke did in front of so many people.

By the way Japanese fans, if you have some extra time can one of you give a quick summary of what Daisuke said in his speech? Thank you so much! I love you

I found this article about Daisuke's graduation.
It's so strange to read about that on an italian site... Daisuke is becoming an important skater also here! Razz

I post the link. Sorry, but now I have no time to translate... I will do it as soon as I can...

At first he congratulated to new students and thanked Kansai Univ for inviting him here and giving him a special award.

I spent 4 years here in Kansai Universiy. I came to like Kansai University very much during those 4 years. By experiencing a lot of things, there were difficulties and enjoyments, and learning plenty things, I could grow up.
You might know it though, I will enroll in the Graduate School. I'd like to experience and learn many for 2 years here again and grow into an adult a step further.
While I'm in the school I'd like to go to Vancouver Olympics with Nobunari Oda who is one year my junior.

Please come to like Kansai University. And please tresure everyday not to regret for 4 years from now.


Sorry for my imparfect translation again!! Very Happy Very Happy

Thank you for the video Leode and miyu! Very Happy
And thank you miyu for translation!
I've never thought I could see Daisuke's graduation's ceremony!

Here translation of the article I've posted:

Despite his fourth place at Worlds, where he was expected as winner, Daisuke Takahashi had a season full of great results: first at Skate America and at NHK Trophy, second at GPF, master at 4CC, where he stole world record for total and free to Evgeni Plushenko, winner of the bonus of 45.000 dollars given by ISU to the skater who had more points in this season for World Standing, where he is first. [...]
This big zeal in sport (if you have seen him in Courmayeur last summer you know he doesn't joke) wasn't to study's detriment. Infact Daisuke gradueted in letter in March in Kensai University, where he studied four years. Now, at 22 years old, he will continue to engage both on sport and on study: in april he will start study again in the Graduate School of Letter, in Kensai University, for the master.
Takahashi spends part of his time also to promote his university.
Kansai University offers advantageous study's conditions to the top athletes, favouring sport (Kansai University opened an icerink in 2006 for the university team - also Takahashi and Oda belong to it). In exchange athletes promote the university's imagine. So Takahashi did a welcome speech for the new students, during the opening ceremony of the new academic year. During the ceremony Daisuke was given the graduation certificate he couldn't take in march because of the Worlds. He also received a gown and a gold medal.
In his speech Takahashi also talked about Oda: "I 'd like to go to Vancouver with Nobunari. We both did a lot for Kensai University. It will be great if we could win gold and silver".


Sorry for my English... Embarassed

Thank you miyu and glorydave for your translations for DTFF! I really enjoyed reading them. You guys did an awesome job translating. Cool

Wow, this surprises me too, but it's such a good thing for Daisuke to gain more recognition outside of his home country Japan. He deserves it.

Thanks for the video and the article translation, glorydave! Dai's really gaining worldwide popularity if the Italian media is writing about his graduation. I doubt it will show up in the US media but it's great that he's becoming more popular worldwide (which is exactly what Morozov wants for him).
