Fourth KU "Koori no Koshien"
From July 9-10, the 4th "Koori no Koshien," a performance by junior figure skaters, along with an exhibition by our top figure skaters, was held in the Ice Arena on Takatsuki Campus.
At the junior skaters' performance, approximately 80 students, ranging from elementary through high school, exhibited the fruits of their daily practice, and the higher-ranking students were then awarded a certificate of commendation and a medal.
This year, the special awards were also given by Nobuo Sato, our alumnus as well as a member of the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame. Furthermore, Nobunari Oda (Graduate School of Letters) appeared as a surprise guest. He praised the skaters and said that he was impressed that everyone has a high level of skating technique.
