Iltalehti: Early bird

The suprise medal got Kiira so mixed up that she could not get any sleep on sunday morning.

– I woke up around half past five. I wasn’t really awake but couldn’t sleep either, Kiira told.

Kiira and Susanna were the most wakeful skaters in the gala practice. Not all top five skaters had gotten from the closing banquet to the hotel as early as the dutiful Finnish duo.

– I was back at hotel just before midnight. Me and Susanna got back from the banquet on the first bus.

Iltasanomat: Captivating medal-smile

– It was amazing. A dream come true. I have always dreamt of being on a podium in a championship competition. And there we were, a happy Kiira remembers her achievement.

After the competition the favourite skater of many was able to enjoy her medal in the traditional closing banquet and browse through all the congratulation messages on her cellphone.

Iltalehti:早起き

驚くべきメダル獲得にキーラはすっかり混乱してしまい、日曜の朝はぜんぜん眠れなかった。

「5時半ごろに目が覚めたんです。寝ぼけてたんだけど、眠れなくて」とキーラは言う。

キーラとスザンナ(・ポイキヨ)は、ガラの練習では最も目覚めのいい選手だった。上位5人の選手たちのなかで、礼儀正しいフィンランドの2人よりも早く閉幕のパーティからホテルに戻った選手はいなかった。

「12時前にホテルに戻りました。私とスザンナは最初のバスでパーティから帰ったんです」

Iltasanomat:心を奪うメダル、笑顔

「ビックリです。夢がかないました。チャンピオン大会で表彰台に上るのをずっと夢見てきたんですが、本当に立つことができたのです」キーラは喜びをかみしめる。

大会後、みんなが大好きなこの選手は、伝統的な閉幕パーティでメダル獲得の喜びを分かち合い、携帯電話に届くお祝いメッセージを読むことができた。

European Figure Skating Championships – Warsaw (POL) Day 4

Ladies, Short Program

Kiira Korpi (FIN) finished fifth in the first part of the Ladies event. Her routine included a triple loop-double toeloop combination and a triple flip (53.84 points).


European Figure Skating Championships – Day 5

Ladies, Free Skating

In what was an interesting Ladies event, Carolina Kostner of Italy was crowned the new European Champion. Sarah Meier (SUI) skated to the silver medal while Finland’s Kiira Korpi earned the bronze.

Korpi’s program to “Phantasia” with motives from “Phantom of the Opera” by Andrew Lloyd Webber, featured a triple Lutz-double toe-double loop combination, a triple loop-double toe and a triple Salchow-double toe as well as a level-four spiral and a level three combination spin. The 18-year-old Finn stumbled on her first double Axel, doubled loop and her second flip was underroated and downgraded. Korpi earned 97.35 points (46.79/50.56) and accumulated 151.19 points overall. She was ranked fourth in the Free Skating but nevertheless moved up from fifth to third.

Korpi still seemed stunned by what had happened. “I still can’t believe it, I never would have expected this after my performance. I could have done better but I’m happy with anyway. The first jump was a double, the flip was not clean and then there was the Axel… but otherwise it was OK. I can’t believe my marks, I didn’t expect them to be so good, especially as I know what I could be capable of, there is still room for improvement. I have had a nice feeling all week, I have been enjoying the buzz.”

ISU(国際スケート連盟)の最新ニュースからの記事を。


フィギュアスケート欧州選手権/ワルシャワ(ポーランド)4日目

女子ショートプログラム

キーラ・コルピ(フィンランド)は、女子シングルの序盤を5位で終えた。3ループ+2トゥのコンビネーションと3フリップを含む演技で53.84ポイントを獲得。


フィギュアスケート欧州選手権/ワルシャワ(ポーランド)5日目

女子フリースケーティング

女子シングルで興味深かったことは、イタリアのカロリーナ・コストナーが新たな欧州チャンピオンに輝いたことだ。サラ・マイヤー(スイス)は銀メダル、フィンランドのキーラコルピは銅メダルを獲得した。

(中略)

アンドリュー・ロイド・ウェバーによる「オペラ座の怪人」をモチーフにした「ファンタジア」を使ったコルピのプログラムは、3ルッツ+2トゥ+2ループ、3ループ+2トゥ、3サルコウ+2トゥの各コンビネーションと、レベル4のスパイラル、レベル3のコンビネーションスピンが特徴だ。
フィンランドの18歳は初めの2アクセルが2ループになってしまい、2番目のフリップも回転不足でダウングレードになってしまった。コルピは97.35ポイント(46.79/50.56)を獲得し、合計で最終的に151.19ポイントになった。フリースケーティングとしては4位だったにもかかわらず5位から3位へと浮上した。

(中略)

コルピはまだ今回の出来事に呆然としているようだ。
「まだ信じられません。演技の後ではこんなこと想像もしていませんでした。もっとよく滑れたかもしれないけど、とにかくうれしいです。最初のジャンプがダブルで、フリップも決まらなかったし、あのアクセルも(注:着地で手を付いてしまった)…でも、ほかはOKでした。今回の自分の点数が信じられません。こんなにいいとは期待してなかったし、特に私自身が、まだまだ改善の余地があることを知っているので。でも、気分のいい1週間でした。歓声も楽しめましたし」

Some articles mostly from Finnish media:

YLE news: Kostner to victory, Korpi took bronze

– To be honest, I would never have believed that I would leave here with a medal. This is unbelievable.

The first jump failed but she did not stop to worry that.
– The next combination went so well and gave good momentum to finish the program without worrying the little mistakes.

The next step are the World Championships in two months.
– I havent’t thought about it yet. I just came here to fight for the place to the Worlds.

Aamulehti: Kiira Korpi brought bronze to Finland

Aamulehti: Coach Siromaa cried tears of joy

– She’s a fighter, preparing for the competition was not an easy task. This is unbelievable.

Coach was afraid that Korpi was not in good enough condition to skate her programs to the end.
– And she quite didn’t. On free skate Kiira eased up her program at the end and that was a wise decision.

Iltalehti: Great Kiira!

Kiira couldn’t believe her eyes when the results were final. She took bronze even when few weeks ago she was considering of withdrawing from the competition.
– After my skate I never thought that I would get a medal.

Finnish Figure Skating Association

Despite a little unsecure free skate Kiira took bronze at European Championships.
– It wasn’t the easiest place to go on ice after Carolina, I just tried to get strenght from it and enjoy the ride – and that’s what I did. There were some little mistakes but who cares, Kiira rejoiced after the bronze was confirmed.

フィンランド国内のメディアを中心に報道記事を紹介!

YLEニュース:コストナー勝利、コルピは銅メダル

「正直なところ、メダルを持って帰ることになるなんて、今でも信じられません。信じられないわ」

最初のジャンプで失敗しましたが、心配じゃなかったですか?
「次のコンビネーションジャンプがとてもうまくいったので、小さなミスを心配しないで最後まで勢いに乗って演技ができました」

次のステップは2か月後の世界選手権ですね。
「そこまではまだ考えてなかったんです。ワールドに出られる成績を取るためだけにここへ来たので」

Aamulehti紙:キーラ・コルピがフィンランドに銅メダルをもたらした

写真

Aamulehti紙:コーチのシロマー氏、喜びの涙

「彼女はファイターです。この試合への準備は簡単なものではありませんでした。信じられません」

コルピが最後まで演技をできるコンディションかどうか、コーチは心配だった。
「コンディションは、かなり良くなかったです。最終的にキーラはフリーのプログラムをやさしいものに変えましたが、賢明な判断でした」

Iltalehti紙:すごいぞ、キーラ!

キーラは最終結果を見て目を疑った。数週間前、この大会を欠場することさえ考えていたのに、彼女は銅メダルを取ったのだ。
「滑り終わってからは、メダルを取れるなんて思ってませんでした」

フィンランドのフィギュアスケート連盟

フリーで若干あぶないところがあったにもかかわらず、キーラは欧州選手権で銅メダルを獲得した。
「氷上でカロリーナと賞を争える大変な順位だったけど、そこから力をもらって、滑ることを楽しむようにしただけ。私がしたのは、それだけです。小さなミスはあったけど、気にしないわ」キーラは銅メダルが決まった後、喜んだ。
