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: 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

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。
