The winners have also commented on their big win. Check them out below:
Hello everyone. My name is Dai Miyamoto! I received the prestigious Best Actor Award before becoming the world’s best jazz player! I am so happy! I owe it all to the members I played with, the people who supported me, the audience, and the readers. I will continue to play, so please keep in touch with me!
My name is Inori Yui. I am a figure skater in the women’s singles team. After school, I go to the skating rink and work hard with my teacher to do the triple Lutz jump. When I skate, I like to see the smiling faces of the skaters after the performance, and to get a handshake from them.
When I can get on the platform, I am happy that I could do it as I practiced with my teacher, and I am very happy that many people are happy to see me. But when I can’t do it well, I feel sad.
At those times, Tsukasa-sensei, who I practice with all the time, praises me during practice, saying, “You did your best.
It makes me happy, but I feel a little embarrassed that he praises me when I don’t do well. But I was also very happy to receive an award for doing my best, as I did today.It’s a pity that I couldn’t make it today because I had a training session.
I really wanted to receive the trophy in person. I am looking forward to receiving it at home.
I will do my best to win more medals in skating competitions from now on!
