Re: Kei's news thread

Kei's interview was aired on the NHK morning news today, He was speaking in US about his bearkthrough year.
He said that he was happy that there were times during the season when everything went well, and he also said that he knows the next two to three years will be very important to him and he's determined to work hard so that he can get into top 10-20.

It was part of a series of interviews to top athletes who made a big progress this year.

Also, on Monday, Japan Sports Grand Prix was announced, and Kei was chosen as one of about 20 top athletes who won outstanding performance award (my translation... the Japanese word is yushusho 優秀賞)。 Other recipients include figue skater Mao Asada and gymnast Kohei Uchino.
Grand Prix went to double Olympic gold medalist swimmer Kosuke Kitajima and the special award was given to Yukiko Ueno, the captain of the women's softball team that also won the gold medal in Beijing.
