President's Commendation Ceremony and Appreciation Party in Support of the KU Kaisers Top Skaters
On April 21, the President's Commendation Ceremony and Appreciation Party in Support of the KU Kaisers Top Skaters was held at Senriyama Campus.
At the Ceremony, the President commended Daisuke Takahashi (Graduate School of Letters), Nobunari Oda (Graduate School of Letters) and Tatsuki Machida (Faculty of Letters) for their internationally outstanding results in men's figure skating. President Harushige Kusumi presented each of them a gift, and they looked a little nervous as they received their gifts in front of approximately 1,200 people in the audience.
Following the ceremony, a talk event by the three skaters was held to express their appreciation to their supporters at the Sochi Olympics. They talked about interesting stories in the world of figure skating, how hard they had to train, personal stories and so on, and the audience enjoyed seeing them in person as their real faces are seldom seen in public. They had a good time talking throughout the event and always had smiles on their faces.
