Daisuke Takahashi: First Japanese figure skater to compete in three Olympics
Here’s to creating magic every time you step on the ice. Here’s to your incredible careers. Here’s to the grueling hours you spent practising your routines and to your passion and dedication for this art form. Thank you. You will be missed.
Daisuke Takahashi flirting with judges
Takahashi stood on the skating rink of the Sochi Games for his last Olympics appearance. “His facial expression was so gentle and he was skating so joyfully,” said Kiyoto, who was watching her son’s performance with her palms pressed together as if she were praying. Kiyoto added with tears: “He had the best facial expression ever. It was splendid.”
BRB, drowning in my tears.
