Sparkly Ruffle

Sparkly Ruffle (5/67)

  1. They can start by arranging comps in accessible and diverse locations, and not demanding a fortune for tickets. So far, no such luck except for Estonia and the UK, but even those are too expensive for certain folk like me. Things are not going to get better in the near future for many people, economy-wise, so food for thought for the ISU if they want audience at their events.
  2. Who else keeps refreshing this page nervously? ^ ^
  3. I said I was under an impression, not that I was sure. No need for the irony. I'm beginning to regret I even asked. I don't follow women all that closely, but in the recent pre-pandemic years, most if not all of Nats top 10 would get Challengers. It would make sense in a season after a rule change to want to see the judges' feedback before GP.
  4. Is there any chance of JSF expanding their current Challenger selection? I've just read that they're listing just Italy, Germany, the US and Finland. Sounds crazy to cram all Nationals top 10 there, and I was under the impression they usually give Challengers to all of them?
  5. Thanks! I wonder if Moa is still in ice dance, and has a partner. The more Japanese ID couples, the better.
  6. I hope to see Rino and Sota in Special next year. I can dream. They're great skaters. Rino has been injured so couldn't produce enough results, but I hope Sota takes a good long stern look at himself. Had he not messed up every competitive FS this season, he could have been in Special instead of -or alongside- Kazuki and Miura.
  7. Which Japanese skaters train abroad at the moment? Shoma and Koshiro in Switzerland, Rika, Satoko and Riku/Ryuichi in Canada, and Kana/Daisuke in the US? Is that all?
  8. Thanks! Glad to hear he's not retiring. He doesn't thank Ayumi either in his post, so perhaps the split wasn't exactly amicable. Just guessing though... maybe Japanese ID couples split more formally than what I'm used to seeing from US couples.
  9. So sorry to hear of this split. I had hopes for AyuShin. I assume Ayumi's post means that Shingo's family had some difficulties, or maybe had issues with their partnership? But it's still strange that Ayumi doesn't wish Shingo luck in his future career. I hope he's not retiring, he's super talented. Most Japanese singles cannot match his musicality and expression range. I'd be very sad if he was retiring.
  10. I see. I'd love to see Keiji keep skating for a while yet, because like you, I have been a fan of his since early 2017. But I think pairs would be too much for him. -_- He's shorter than Ryuichi, and throws and lifts would be too much for him I'm afraid. I am wondering about the younger boys like Koshiro or Sena, but they're slender, so posibly they'd not be interested in pairs. Too bad Taichiro Yamakuma isn't planning a pairs career - he's young, tall and sturdier built than most boys on Team Japan. Anyhow, I hope Shoya Ichihashi is still active in pairs?
  11. Any particular reason why you say so? He's had chronic back issues for years, so it's unlikely, but I'd like to see him keep skating. And I hope the JSF send him somewhere yet. Otherwise he'll be out of the world standings altogether before the next season starts, and that would be just sad.
  12. Maybe I'm wrong as I'm only a learner, but the meaning I know is just 'Oh really? / Oh yes?', as in, a shortened 'sou desu ka'. Maybe someone more knowledgeable will help out.
  13. I'll just hope the < is their way of motivating him to hang on...
