From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Japan or All-Japan Figure Skating Championships are held annually to determine the Japanese figure skating title. The disciplines of competition were men's singles, ladies singles and ice dancing. This event was used to determine the teams for the 2006 Winter Olympics, the 2006 World Figure Skating Championships and the 2006 Four Continents Figure Skating Championships. The level of competition was Senior-level only. Juniors competed at the Japan Junior Figure Skating Championships, where the top three advanced to the 2006 World Junior Figure Skating Championships.

The 2005–2006 season championships were held in the Yoyogi National Gymnasium in Tokyo between December 23 and 25, 2005.

Notes[edit]

  • Because of an error in the scoring system software, Nobunari Oda was originally declared the winner of the men's event, with Daisuke Takahashi placing second. Oda had done four combination jumps instead of the allowed three, but the software had counted the fourth combination jump. When the error was discovered and fixed, their placements switched, with Takahashi winning the event and being sent to the Olympics. Oda was sent to World Championships. Japan had only one entry to the Olympics and to the World Championships in the men's event.
  • Despite her 2nd place finish, Mao Asada was not chosen for the Olympic, World, or Four Continents team, because she was not old enough. She was instead sent back to Junior Worlds.

International Team Selections[edit]

Olympic Team[edit]

The picking of the Olympic Ladies team used a complicated formula that took into consideration the season as a whole along with other previous competitions, not just the results of the National Championships. Therefore, sixth place finisher Miki Ando was chosen ahead of fourth place finisher Yoshie Onda and fifth place finisher Yukari Nakano. However, Nakano was picked ahead of Ando for the World team.
