Rika Kihira [17 = Kansai KFSC], who has been running for two consecutive women at the four continents of figure skating [opening June 6 in Seoul, South Korea], arrived at the local Gimpo Airport on March 3. A Colorado training camp was held in January. "I feel good," she said.
Kaori Sakamoto [19 = Sysmex], who crashed in a four-round toe loop in the National Women's Adult Free Day on the 1st, grinned, saying, "It's a secret" about the big tricks to be introduced at this tournament. Aiming for the first victory in two tournaments, the official training will begin on the 4th.
