Japan Open 2008 was over

Japan Open 2008 (competition) and Carnival on Ice (gala) was just over.

In summary, Team Europe was 2nd place just few points behind Team Japan.
Kiira skated to “Phantom” program with her glittering pink dress
but was not so good at skating – fell once and missed jumps.
You can see detailed results here (pdf file).

At the gala, she skated to “ABBA” program in a dreamy atmosphere
with a little bit different costume than the Euros – a blue (or purple?) shirt
and a pink short pants.

I succeeded to have a short interview with her before the competition.
Just a moment to write the article.

Suggestions to Kiira are now wanted

Hi everyone,

Kiira is coming to Japan and she seems to look for something new and inspiring
for her new Free Skating program.

So, if you have some impressions, suggestions, opinions etc. to her FS,
please let me know it with comments here.
Skating elements, choreography, music, costumes… everything will be welcomed.
I’ll manage to tell her or her team about it.


When you recommend her such as songs, costumes or elements,
if you know the URL (address) of YouTube (or something like that),
please tell us to help identifying it easily.
