Q: Do you have any idea of next season's programs?
D: I don't want to think of it now. It's a really hard work to decide new programs every year. Who to ask to choreograph? What kind of music? At any rate I have to think a lot. It would be nice that a certain genre is chosen for SP like OD. (* he said "original dance") Then the differences of expression between skaters will appear more clearly. And you can choose anything freely for FP. How about this rule? I propose it!
That's smart thinking indeed from Dai and it would make a great rule, I think he should propose it for real! Of course the others not being up to his artistic standards wouldn't agree, but it's really an interesting idea. Maybe he should join the ISU once he retires and bring fresh ideas to the stale system!

Quote :
Q: Sure, it will be a hard work to decide as you change choreographers every year.
D: At the beginning of this season, I already had only four choices as only two seasons were left for me. But now only two. I feel like it's too difficult to choose by myself.

Oh but please, Dai-chan, don't ask for Moron-ov help!!!

I like his haircut too.

FYI, Nagasawa san, the hair stylist said that though he could sense Dai-chan was tired of the current style and dying to change it, Dai has to be a grown-up Laughing and put up with an "ordinary" hair cut for now for he will have another competition coming soon. So Mr Nagasawa announced that for the next time we'd expect a new style. affraid

Fingers crossed... Cool

Yes, that's a nice hair-cut but it's way too "formal" for him, I thought!
I can't wait for a more radical change of style once the competitive season is over! He will surprise us... Twisted Evil

Thanks miyu.
After reading the interview, I felt he did too much in 12/13 season..especially too many practices, too much thoughts.
Experts say he is simply best and has enormous talent so please Daisuke, trust yourself!!
I worry that he seems to do even more in off season.

And choice of music, choreo and quad..etc, umm, It might be better if he takes a simple approach.IMO.

Thank you everybody for all the news, and miyu for the translation! I love you

Please, Dai, not "The phantom of the opera", and especially not in Morozov choreography!

I'm trying to prepare myself for Dai's new haircut. After such season it will be something crazy for sure. afro

Hi guys! I'm sorry I made you wait.

Here is the third page. (I hope you can understand my translation, seriouly this time.....)

http://web.canon.jp/event/skating/interview/int_takahashi3.html

Q: Finally we will have the Olympic games in the next season. Are you feeling differently from how you felt before the previous two Olympics started?
D: As for Torino Olympics, I became eager to go to the Olympics after 2005 World Championships, so I started preparing for it after the Olympics season had already started. As for Vancouver Olympics, I sat out for a year due to the injury which I got a year before, so I also could prepare for it only within the year of the Olympics. But this time, it's pretty much different because I've been preparing for three years in my mind.

Q: Is the Olympics that special after all?
A: It's different at all. The atmosphere is different. Even though we have the same athletes and judges as usual, the atmosphere is totally different.

Q: How did you feel during Torino Olympics?
D: I had no idea what I was doing. I didn't feel much that I was burdened with something. I got excited with a joy to participate in the Olympics and then it was over.

Q: How about Vancouver Olympics?
D: It was just after I came back from the injury. I had to prepare for it in a dash and also thought I wanted to enjoy the olympics, because, to be honest, I was not sure if I could win a medal, I thought it difficult. But it will be more difficult this time, I think.

Q: As you got the medal without any successful quads in Vancouver, donít you have a good shot at winning something better with your current condition?
D: I couldn't land any quads during that season but at the same time no one did it. It was very different from the current situation, now doing three quads is no longer special.

Q: You answered in the interview in Canada "Probably the next year will be the last" with an uncertain nuance. There appeared a possibility not to retire?
D: Iíve never declared clearly that the next year is the last. I just said I will work hard taking it as the last year. (laugh bitterly) I limit the time and I will work as much as I can admit Iíve done enough until then. So, at the end of next year if I think I canít do anymore, I will quit. Probably I wonít continue after next year, but anything could happen in life.

Q: I see, I actually expected a little. What kind of performance do you want to deliver in the Olympics?
D: If I can go, Iíd like to deliver a performance which moves my own self. A performance that I put every single piece of myself into. Itís no matter whether I make a mistake or not. Iíd like to feel the atmosphere, itís hard to say, something like the arena is uniting into one. The indescribable atmosphere that Iím connecting (to the arena).

Q: What kind of experience will Sochi Olympics become for you?
D: Itís not determined yet if I can participate or not, but the road to this coming Olympics is also the start for the next chapter of my life. It will all depend on the Olympics how I can start my next career after I retire. So I think, itís the last, yet also the first. It will be a start for me in order to start doing what Iím willing to do.



Yes, I have things I want to say. But tonight I don't have time.. I leave it to fosse and let's talk. Wink Please go ahead! Cool I will be back later on.

Thanks miyu for the further translation. I am trying to read between the lines about Dai's retirement.

It seems there may be a possibility that Dai will compete at Worlds in Japan?

Q: You answered in the interview in Canada "Probably the next year will be the last" with an uncertain nuance. There appeared a possibility not to retire?
D: Iíve never declared clearly that the next year is the last. I just said I will work hard taking it as the last year.

Probably I wonít continue after next year, but anything could happen in life.


In his retirement announcement he made earlier he said that 2014 would be his last season but he did not specifically say that he would retire immediately after Sochi.

What do you all think.

Thank you Miyu, for the last part of the interview. It's the first time that he hints at the possibility of not retiring after Sochi so openly, and like his decision of staying until Sochi, this thought comes right after a big disappointment. I wonder what's going on in his mind...

This has been a very interesting interview indeed!

I wish I could have gotton one pair of his boots Embarassed

At the opening, Daisuke said,

朝日新聞スポーツ ‏@asahi_sports

高橋選手「本当の復興はこの先長くかかると思います。何かできることがないかと始めたことが3回目を迎えられ、ありがたく思います。2年経ちましたが、震災を忘れないこととともに、大きなショーのような照明もないですが、来てくれた皆さんに楽しんでもらえるよう頑張ります

"Still needs a long long time till all really get recovered, I'm afraid. After the earthquake happened, we, skaters thought what we could do for them, and held a charity show. And thanks to everybody's support, we have the third one today. We're really appreciate this. Two years has passed, but it's important for us not to forget. We'll do our best today, though we don't have any special lights like ordinary show has. Thank you for coming and hope you'll enjoy."

We won't forget that and always remember still so many people are suffering...
