Here's a television interview (with English subtitles) from NHK local news about Daisuke Takahashi's recovery from a torn knee ligament. He's currently in Detroit at a training camp. Takahashi says his skating has changed; it's gotten softer and he can do more variations now because he has more hip and joint flexibility. I cannot wait to see him skate this season - we'll see if the changes are noticeable. There's a lot of skating and knee rehab footage.
