    8Rinks has two Japanese coaches. One of them is Megumu Seki who used to teach Yuka Nagai. According to this article, he'll be in Rika's coaching team, so the language barrier will not be a big problem for her. Rika's former coach Hiroshi Nagakubo was known as a good jump coach, (though I am not a huge fan of Nagakubo-style jumps because their set-up often stick out and break the flow of the choreography) but he retired from coaching a while ago, so the skating club Rika belonged to wasn't ideal for reworking jumps anyway. Don't know how she made this decision, but wishing her best of luck. I loved her Frida last year and am hoping to see her skating strong again.

  4. I'll be working next weekend so won't be able to follow this event live, but looking forward to seeing Nam, Kevin, Michal, Julian, Voronov, Loena, Elena, Polina and girls from Japan later. Looking forward to seeing Nathan's SP too.

    This is a moment before they began press conference of Yuzu on Nov. 30, 2014, sometime before/after the exhibition of NHK Trophy 2014. This footage was probably filmed and aired by NHK or TV Asahi though I could not find the source which is online...
