Twind!!!!  I’ve really wanted as many people as possible to watch this, ”the talk between two of these beautiful men” (indeed!!). Thank you so much!!! cheers  cheers 

I appreciate every thoughtful and caring word from Kumakawa-san. I even had an impression that he picked the subjects, what is good for Dai-chan, prior to the shooting.  It must have been an extremely fruitful experience for Dai-chan, especially at that moment.

In the talk between Shizuka and Dai-chan, which was filmed after ”the talk between two of these beautiful men” and broadcasted last weekend, I could see the positive effects from Kumakawa-san.  Very Happy 

Ganbare Dai-chan! God, please protect his precious knee!!! sunny  sunny 

I got my copy of “D1SK” (DVD) yesterday!!! I’m going to to buy the latest issue of Number today which mainly features Mao, but has an article about Dai-chan.

Here is a video of Team Japan being introduced to the audience after announcement for Olympic Team.
It starts  back stage and continues as each member is introduced. After all are introduced  each member
speaks. Dai speaks at 8:46. Listen to the audience cheering him while he speaks. He stops speaking several
times to acknowledge the cheers and gather his emotions then continues his speech.

Sorry if this has been already posted.

Thank you for the video, Shyla.

@0:10, Narumi said "Daisuke-kun, Omedetou. Narumi chou ureshii" (Daisuke-kun, congratulations. Narumi is super glad.)  Very Happy 


I bought Number magazine yesterday.
http://number.bunshun.jp/articles/-/781158

There isn't any new information especially, but the interview was done after JN. (could be after Kumakawa.) According to it, the pain came back just a week before JN and he felt doomed at that time. Sad 

I translated some of his comments. Sorry for my poor translation quality!!

(Now) I’m feeling like I’m tested how much I can be strong in this situation. If I won’t be able to achieve a good result, I will regret it for the rest of my life and keep blaming myself. But from the opposite point of view, it could be a chance to give me confidence for my life in future. I think it will become a test which will lead me to choose the path of my life.
This season was really hard for me. But I believe I can make use of it in the rest of the time to the Olympics. …… In Sochi, I will definitely give the very best performance of my life with putting my emotion 100% into it. It’s impossible for me to win the gold without doing it. So, (what I have to do until then is) how much I can change myself. Even though it is a brief period, I intend to present new changed self and make the people who will see my Sochi performance, wonder like “what happened with him?” I’m going to practice imaging myself being fully confident in Sochi. …… It would be great if you could give it your all in the Olympics which you’ve aimed for. I want to, no it’s wrong, it’s “I do it”. I have to do it. It’s impossible unless I believe it that much. Figure skating is a unique sport which you can draw all the eyes to yourself. You will be able to draw more than ten thousands of eyes only to you in the big arena in the Olympics. If I can bring out all my best there, it’s really fantastic.  


BTW, this issue mainly featured Mao. And there are messages from the people who know Mao, including Lori, Tarasova, Rafael Arutunian, Weir, Plushenko, Slutskaya, Yukina, Nobu and so on. Every message was really moving. You can't read them without tears! I wish the magazine does the same kind of thing on Dai-chan in future!  

I think Dai-chan is already in Russia... at least... What do you think, guys?

Ganbare Dai-chan!! sunny sunny

Shyla, thank you for video. Dai can hardly talk because of all people cheering for him  cheers  And he is moved by all this love and support  I love you I love you Please, Dai, remember all this love surrounding you when you feel down!!

Dai told - sorry, I don't remember in which occasion - that he would have reached Morozov for final training camp within the end of January. As Morovoz has been busy with European Champs. till 18/19 Jan, I guess that Dai reached him in Russia (Novogorsk ?) after that time.



My God, please, relieve Dai from his knee pain, keep him strong in body and spirit, lift him up on the ice to the perfect performances he wishes for. He deserves it.


GANBARE DAI-CHAN!!!  cheers  cheers  cheers

On Jan 21st, this kind person posted this https://twitter.com/yoshisusa/status/425623302464225281
He says this was at Dai's last practice at Osaka before the Olympics.
So probably he is already in Russia.

I wonder if Brian Joubert is there too. I find it interesting (and charming) that the two of them might be preparing together for their final showdown.  Cool 


(If you didn't know, Brian Joubert got a sudden offer from Nikolai Morozov to work together again.
Here are some interesting interviews with Brian before Europeans:
http://www.absoluteskating.com/index.php?cat=interviews&id=2014brianjoubert
http://www.icenetwork.com/news/2014/01/15/66689482

"I am not part of the best skaters anymore, and my time is over."  Sad   

In this article, there is a short interview with Morozov
http://fskating.com/2014/01/brian-joubert-reunited-with-nikolai-morozov.html

He says " Daisuke knows everything, he needs only work on jumps"  Basketball )

Good Luck Brian!

Go Dai! Do It!!!  cheers  cheers  cheers

Thank you for the information, PATTINA and ilica.

According to this article, Plushenko is now training in Novogorsk, too. Three veterans are in Novogorsk. (Probably!)

Here is the unused costume for Ocean Wave which he unveiled in D1SK DVD. He said, he'd like to Pasquare to make a new show program for this music someday, as he likes  this kind of music like Crisis and Ocean Wave.

So Nikolai is concentrating on only I/K and Dai-chan now. I hope it's working well. Very Happy

Haha! I remember the arrival of Dai-chan at Vancouver was aired in TV news four years ago. I think he is intentionally doing so.

Thank you for the video, PATTINA! Very Happy 
Please take care of yourself. Hope you feel better soon.

The content of it is nothing new. Always quad, quad, quad... I think some TV have to make a program which features how good the SS of Dai-chan and other skaters like Patrick, Takahiko and Carolina is and how difficult they are to do. How difficult technically to step and dance on the ice with great artistry and perfetc timing to the music as Dai-chan does!!!!

Here is the last minutes of the documentary posted by PATTINA. If you don't have a time to watch the whole program, you can see his beautiful 3A filmed on January 7th!! in this.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooh0kWLUmTo

0:44
It’s not a strategy anymore. I have no choice but to land jumps successfully. I just have to practice for the success of jumps. I just have to go with the image of a perfect performanc and people giving standing ovations and praising me.

I'm so proud of his devotion and bravery. flower

A Russian volunteer who works in a mixed zone of a training rink wrote in her blog that Dai is expected to arrive in Sochi around Feb 10. The info is unofficial, so I am not sure if it's correct one or not.

I don't belive Dai would miss the Opening Cermony to march with Team Japan on Feb. 7th, which he would miss if
he is arriving on Feb. 10??? So maybe the blogger had incorrect date.

Ostile hope you feel better soon and your kitty too. Flu must be in Italy as Pattina is sick to.
