And at last, Japan has a medal in the Winter Olympics. Shizuka Arakawa won the Gold Medal for her performance in the Women’s Figure Skating. Good for her – she’s worked hard for it.

Now she has to survive the media onslaught that will invade her life for the next…. goodness knows how long!

She’s already hinted that she’s going to retire. That’ll probably save her a lot of pressure to repeat the performance – but also it’ll be good to finish on top.

おめでとうございます!
