    Thanks for sharing, cohkaix! I had no idea this competition even existed. Do you know if boys participated as well? I wonder who won, what with Tatsuya injured.
    ETA, this article lists the gents' event results as well: https://www.chunichi.co.jp/chuspo/ar...802000219.html Looks like Ryuju won Sr men with about 208 total score (he's coming back! *relief*) and there seem to be only two guys competing. There were juniors as well but I cannot recognize any of the names but Ryuju's (I think the other Sr boy is Kotaro Takeuchi but not sure) - help appreciated.
    Sorry to bring this here into the ladies' thread but the Japanese boys don't have a thread of their own yet for 2019/20.

Why would she put at risk her famous consistency? Does she still hope to get on the worlds' top despite ever increasing competition and is she going for big prizes even if it means the risk of meltdowns that can bury her reputation?
    Good for Miyahara - the 3A is smart as it can be used in the short program. Of course she needs it to be consistent It's worth over 4.5 more pts than a double axel at BV not even considering GOE.

    Ayaka Hosoda gets her promised new skates from "Junk Sports" host, promptly nails a Triple Axel, and pledges to challenge a quad!

    Hanna Yoshida @ Howa Cup
    https://twitter.com/masumas60386609/...53324942426112

    ETA:
    She landed her first 3A in competition last August at the age of 12 (and 11 months).
    But immediately after it she suffered stress stress fracture on hip bone
    and couldn't skate for 4 months.
    She returned competition February but jump layout was lesser than half years ago.
    https://twitter.com/masumas60386609/...52293747642369
    Now she resumed what she did about a year ago.

    Rika changed her layout again according to news. She wants to be more competitive against the Russians. Japanese TV says it is an impressive layout

    This special was from her training in Colorado a while ago, so I don’t think she changed her layout again per se, this may have just been the original layout if I am understanding correctly. Of course we will have to wait and see.

    Yuna Shiraiwa and Ayaka Hosoda practising quads.

    Yuna has nothing, but Ayaka was this close to landing a 4T.

    not bad at all, she just need to rotate a little bit faster. Some are downgrade though, mostly UR

    Adding: it looks like Shoma has returned to Japan and has undergone interview...possibly also at Chukyo U. Perhaps he's also back for the camp? It's not for sure at the moment but there's possibility that more skaters may join the camp later on.

    No Ayaka Hosoda? Well, Kihira isn't there either, so I guess it's not a necessity. But why is Marin there?

    The summer camp is mainly for GP skaters. So it makes sense that Marin is there while Ayaka is not. Not sure about why Rika is not there.

    This is going to be interesting

    Marin says she talked with Rafael, and she hopes to spend a half training time in US with Rafael and work with Takeshi Honda in another half in Japan (she says she can understand Takeshi easier because she can communicate in the same language) Her main coach is still Rafael.
