Kana Muramoto (29) and Daisuke Takahashi (36) achieved their long-awaited victory. Takahashi, who are five-time national champion in men’s single skating, achieved the first-ever victory in two “singles & ice dance” categories. The duo will also represent Japan at the World Championships (next March, Saitama Super Arena).

“I really wanted to be happy… but at the end, I didn’t have enough energy. It’s frustrating and I can’t sleep. Let’s drink alcohol.” It turned out to be the best Christmas Eve,” Takahashi said.

When Muramoto said, “I was able to calm down and focus on each element,” Takahashi also laughed and said, “I could feel the growth, except for the lift. This season’s theme “deepening” proved.”

“Our big goal for this season is to win the Japanese Nationals. Dai-chan and I are happy to achieve it together together. It was a special day,” said Muramoto.

Kana Muramoto: On the one hand, I’m very happy, but on the other hand, I’m frustrated because I made a mistake at the very end, but until then, I think I was able to skate calmly giving my best performance of the season.

Daisuke Takahashi: Um, at the end, I was a little more tense, but I never thought it would come there. It’s too frustrating. However, I was happy that I was able to show a result. It is completely different (from single skating), and having a partner in real life changes the reaction from time to time. You have to have a really good performance. When I was able to do it, I felt so good.”
