Thanks for the translation Twind. Dai is so honest and open about his experience at GPF.
He certainly is not a boaster or full of himself. One of the many things I love about Dai is his humility.

If I could speak to Dai I would tell him not to be so critical of his skating and he should listen to the various commentators
around the world praise his skating while he is performing. Yes there were mistakes but there is a lot of great skating going on
in between and that you deserved to win GPF.

Thank you, everyone, for the links, and Genki and Twind for translation! I love you

Right before the competition Coach Nikolai Morozov barked at me ďenchant more!Ē to put me through hard practices so I had much more tension in the practice than the competition. (LOL)

Oh Dai, do you know, that for some, to see again this "totally terrible performance" is still the most anticipated moment of the day? Embarassed
But thank you for telling us how it was from your perspective (and Twind for translating!) We need to be reminded how hard the skating and competing is.

Why this is not videotaped?! Laughing Very Happy

Sad for Takahashi&Tran...

Genki, thank you very much!

Hi:

" My ideal program should be solid technical as well as artistically. In addition, I really want to have a program that people would say " I do not understand why, but I can't stop watching it. or I can not take my eye off from him. "

Well, I guess all of his programs are already like that, but he does not realize it yet?

I wish he realized, at least for a moment, that he has accomplished that already!

I put my translation of Daisuke's interview on Sankei Express here.
Is it too long as one entry?

Iím simply happy about ďJapanís First in MenísĒ, but itís all in the past already.

I could win in the GP Final (Dec 6-8 in Sochi) and it was unexpected for I came into the competition ranked 5th of six skaters and I didnít put much hope on myself. I never could win in any of my six other attempts before and I never could get the title of Junior GPF either, so I thought GP Final is not for me after all. Usually I donít feel so conscious about such record but to think back Iím simply happy that I made a history of ďJapanís First in MenísĒ, and I was also glad that I didnít quit. But now itís all in the past already. I shift my gears for the next so that I donít get carried away...


Twind, thank you so much for this. It is so nice to read his thoughts.
His humbleness makes him beautiful, and I wouldn't change that for the world! Smile
I just hope one day he realizes the magnitude of what he has achieved, and is content with that, but judging by his personality he probably won't and will keep struggling to get better. I love you

Sad to hear about T/T, I liked them a lot. Hard for Japan to make it to any team competition now.

Thank you everyone for videos, pictures and links, what would I do without you all! Smile

I know that GPF is over but I found this six minute warmup video on youtube
of the Men's FS and it focuses entirely on Dai. Cool Good quality.
Thanks to the uploader.
