On June 28, 2008, Daisuke Takahashi was selected one of members(Mao Asada, Miki Ando, Joji Kato and Daisuke) for a JSF Sports Special Achievement prize from Japan Skate Federation(JSF) in recognition of his achievements in 2007-2008 seasons. Daisuke mentioned that he will do a quad in new short program.

日本スケート連盟は28日、東京都内で2007-08年シーズン優秀選手のフィギュアの浅田真央(愛知・中京大中京高)高橋大輔(関大大学院)、スピードの加藤条治(日本電産サンキョー)を表彰した。高橋は前日のアイスショーで初披露したショートプログラム(SP)に4回転ジャンプを組み込むことを明らかにした。(ディリーニュースより)

Congrats, Daisuke! cheers
Also I'm glad to hear that he has a intention to do a quad in new short program.

Thank you for sharing this with us, Leode! sunny
And congratulations to Daisuke for getting this recognition cheers

I have mixed feeling about quads in SP. I love quads, more so when they are properly done, effortless, clean. A quad in SP is a way to pimp up one's SB. It's not the only way, though. And in a case of failure, the penalties are harsh. I'd hate to see Daisuke losing to those for whom quads are an Issue, those who concentrate on clean & safe. Is not going to happen? - Remember last Worlds?

At the same time, I realize that figure skating is a sport, and every sport has its own risks. Risking all to try to reach the next level can be inevitable.

I understand how you feel... It seems he values quads highly. (Maybe because he's grown up seeing great quad jumpers like Plushenko and Yagudin.) I think this year is good to challenge a quad combo in SP. If it won't work well he will be able to adjust his strategy in Olympic year.Surprised

Thak you for letting us know, Leode Very Happy !

And congratulations, Daisuke!!

I have a same feeling about a quad combo in SP as you do, hsuhs and miyu...
It's been 3 or 4 years since the last time he attempted a quad combo in his SP, I guess? Moscow Worlds, 2005?

Yes, I agree with you, and that's exactly what Daisuke himself places a high value on, I think.

Yeah! And besides, Daisuke will have much more time to work with his jump coach, Takeshi Honda, if he trains in Japan this year.
I expect Honda-san will surely help him a lot the way he's been doing wonderfully for the past 2 years. Wink

I believe, it was indeed Worlds 2005 in Moscow.
Here's a youtube link:

And here's the protocols:

With that program Daisuke placed 7th.

Thank you for the news, Leode! Very Happy

I agree with you all about quads in SP.
During the last season Daisuke really improved and he showed he could do also 2 quads in a program... I think he won't have problems with one quad... but new rules are very strict about mistakes, so it could be a risk... Rolling Eyes

Yes! We all know Daisuke's goal, so... it's a great thing that Dai is trying different things and that he has no fear to dare!
Go Daisuke!!!

Thanks for the news, Leode! And congrats to Daisuke! cheers

As for the quad in the short program, it's a different kind of risk than doing 2 in the long program. In the short program, there are significantly fewer elements and one mistake (especially with the new -GOE) can really mess up a skater's score. At the same time, it can be extremely rewarding if he pulls it off. I think he can do it with constant training.

Congats to Daisuke! A I really really do hope that he does a quad in his new SP. Sure it's risky, but if anyone can pull it off it's Daisuke. He's always working on doing his absolute best, and this is the way to go for him. Go Daisuke!
