Kiira's blog updated

Kiira has started writing her blog for this season. First with the Finnish version, and the English version should come soon also.

Season 2009-2010 starts

The season 2009-2010 starts next Friday on the 25th of September 2009 with the Nebelhorn Trophy in Germany, Oberstdorf. Kiira will premiere her completely new short program and the free skating has also been renewed with new choreography and dress.

Kiira says that the training has gone well and without any illnesses, and because of the short last season she has been able to start basic training early and has a good start for the season.

There isn’t any special objectives for the first competition, but she aims skate a complete program and perform a jump sequence of a triple lutz and a double toe-loop. Later in the season the sequence would change to a set of two triple jumps.

The Nebelhorn competition is a place to demonstrate skills for the January’s European Championships in Tallinn, Estonia. Finland will have three places for the ladies competition. The two Vancouver Olympics 2010 places will be given based on the performances of the European Championships.

Because of the season starting, the Finnish News Agency (STT) wrote a news story which all the major news providers published:

New song
Her biography on ISU (updated on 23/09/2009) tells she will skate her new short program to “Caravan” by Ikuko Kawai.
Ikuko Kawai, a Japanese Violinist and composer, is also known for her music “Concierto de Aranjuez” which Michelle Kwan skated to and won the U.S. and World Championships in 2002-2003.

Three postage stamps of Kiira

The Tampere Philatelic association celebrates its 90th anniversary this year, and they are organizing a National Stamp Exhibition on 9th to 11th of October 2009 in Pirkkahalli in Tampere.

There they will unveil three postage stamps and a postcard featuring Kiira Korpi. The national postal service will also provide a skating themed rubber-stamp to be used when marking postage stamps.

Kiira is currently preparing for the next season, but will attend the exhibition if her schedule allows it.

In the meantime anyone can order legal postage stamps with their own photo from Itella’s website. Minimum order is 20 stamps, but there can be two different pictures in one order (10 stamps of both). Price is 1.40 € per stamp.
