Kiira on Japanese NHK TV programs

Kiira is frequently appearing on promotional videos for “Nordic Special” TV programs by NHK, Japanese public broadcasting organization – as you know, one of organizers of NHK Trophy (the other organizer is Japan Skating Federation).

In the videos, Kiira says “shi-a-wa-se” which means “Happiness” in Japanese.

“Nordic Special – from countries of happiness -” programs will be started from Sat, 23 to Sun, 31 July and they will introduce the charms of 5 Nordic countries with 70 programs for 80 hours.

 

Yesterday, I found a really huge poster of Kiira at Shinjuku station in Tokyo! Wow!

Plan gala: Because I’m a girl

On 13th of April 2011 Kiira performed two gala shows in a fund raising event held for girls living in developing countries.


Thanks Roikale95 for the video!

After a very dramatic first minute of Free Skating, Kiira pulled the rest of the program together well. She got 102.90 points from FS and was naturally disappointed. Total points of 166.40 were enough for the third place, so not a catastrophe after all! Kiira got her second bronze medal from the Euros since 2007! Congrats!
