"World figure Skating Championships 2007 Exhibition Tour"
Place: Namihaya Dome at Osaka Japan
Here are my report from World figure Skating Championships 2007 exhibition Tour at Osaka in Japan. Lucky I was in the front of row seat, so I had a great vantage point. I saw Daisuke at his interview at dome and he enjoyed himself which I never seen before and was very relaxing at warm atmosphere in his residence place Osaka. That's why he did also "Nocturne" after "El Tango De Roxanne"and had a interview, especially only Osaka."El Tango De Roxanne"
As he did his masterpiece performance "El Tango De Roxanne", this 3A was not clean rounding. But this was more powerful than ever and I was sure that he has a confidence himself finally."Nocturne"
After announced "Do you wanna see more his performance?", Daisuke came on ice again. He did only the half way between performance, it let me down. I think that he was very exhausted after Wolds 2007. His 3Lz was not clean with off-center of axis and he laughed. But this was very beautiful one and got a chance to see his performance with wearing cosutume "Roxanne".At His Interview
After the harf time show, we saw that host had a interview with Daisuke during brake. Many people was around three of them(Daisuke, Junko Yaginuma and host) and watching them.
---Now, Here comes Daisuke Takahashi who won a first silver medal as Japanese men at the World Championships. Congratulations on your silver medal.Thank you!(with big smile)
--It took a few days after that, how do you feel now?It is past for me, I'm thinking of next season.
--How do you feel about atmosphere in Tokyo Wolrds 2007?I was very nervous and I don't know what I say.
--After finishing your performance, I saw that you cried. What did you mean by that?I'm not satisfied with my performance, however, I guess that the tears overflowed from the liberating feeling of, "It's over!" . So, that's why I cried.
--We saw that you cried at first time, because you've never cried before and always been cool.Yes, (laughing) I cried first time in front of audience. I hate to cry and never cry anymore.
--As your performance made you cry, it was very heavy for you, isn't it, Yaginuma san?
--Junko Yaginuma said "Absolutely yes! But, Your performance was great, how do you feel that you became a silver medalist?"In fact, I finally became the 2nd place, however, I don't feel that I got a won at this competition.
--So, your next target is.....Gold.Yes, I hope so.
--Many people who are living in your residence Osaka came here, would you give them message?It was bad performance beginning of 2006-2007 season, but, I finally got a medal. Thank you very much for your supporting me. And today, pls enjoy this show with us!Impressions for other figure skater menStéphane Lambiel
