Kao Miura: “Keegan Messing delivered an incredible performance just before me, it gave me the energy to perform the way I did today, so thanks to Keegan”
Kao Miura about his victory at the Four Continents Championships 2023.
At the press conference, he surprised the press with his surprising confession. “I forgot my costume today.” He had forgotten about the silver-toned costume for the “Beauty and the Beast” free program.
“The costume arrived thanks to the efforts of many people. This already gave me energy. Also the audience, as well was Shun (Sato) and Keegan (Messing), who skated earlier, and the power of everyone gathered in this final form. It was like an explosion of power.”
In addition, another media asked, “Which one are you from the ‘Beauty and the Beast’?”
The answer is… “The Beauty showed today in my choreosequence, but I don’t have any beauty quality in me so of course I am the Beast.”
Also a sweet part about Keegan Messing:
“I was first in the short program, and Messing was second. He delivered an incredible performance just before me, it gave me the energy to perform the way I did today, so thanks to Keegan.
In fact, before my performance, a lot of skaters showed strong skating, so I told myself that I can do it too. A lot of people said it was hard to compete in Colorado Springs, but I proved to myself that it wasn’t.” said Miura
