Akiko Suzuki (鈴木 明子, Suzuki Akiko) born March 28, 1985 in Toyohashi, Aichi, Japan is a Japanese figure skater. She is the 2010 Japanese national silver medalist, the 2010 Four Continents silver medalist, the 2009 Grand Prix Final bronze medalist and the 2007 Winter University Games Champion.

As of November 2010, she was ranked 2nd in the world by the International Skating Union (ISU)

Personal life
She suffered from anorexia nervosa and therefore missed the entire 2003-2004 season of skating.

Suzuki won the bronze medal at the 2001-2002 Junior Grand Prix Final, and has competed at both the World Junior Figure Skating Championships and the Four Continents Championships.

After having a successful junior career, Suzuki was hampered by her struggles with anorexia. She did not compete at all in the 2003-2004 season. She returned to competitive skating in the 2004-2005 season after being inspired by Shizuka Arakawa's victory at the 2004 World Championships.

She won the silver medal at the 2008 NHK Trophy and the gold medal at the 2009 Cup of China. She won the bronze medal at the 2009-2010 ISU Grand Prix Final. Suzuki earned a place on the Japanese Olympic team after she placed second at the 2009-2010 Japan Figure Skating Championships. She was also assigned to compete at the 2010 Four Continents Championships, where she won the silver medal.

Akiko are blog
si aici sunt traducerile


8th Place—She fell on her triple jump and had some shaky landings. She came in 8th, the same placement as the Vancouver Olympics. No medal. And yet, Suzuki smiled. “Since there was a time I couldn’t skate because of my illness, I was happy to have been able to skate. It might be a bit of an exaggeration, but I felt like I was living.” The strength to live. Being happy with her 22-year competitive career. It’s because her mother, Kei-san (63), was there.

I’ve cried a lot since December.
My tear ducts are so loose.
Tears of happiness.
Tears of regret.
Tears or relief.
Tears of pain.
Tears of gratitude.

All of it has cleansed me.
Now time to take another step forward!!

Se pare ca Akiko s-a casatorit pe 1 feb, dar nu cu Daisuke asa cum mi-as fi dorit eu :D ci cu un fost coleg de scoala. Oricum eu le doresc casa de piatra :)

Traducerea dupa un articol din japoneza: " Professional figure skater Akiko Suzuki, who represented Japan at Vancouver and Sochi Olympics, announced that she recently married. Suzuki, 31, who is a regular on the TBS program GoGo-Smile, married a former elementary school classmate, now a company employee in Nagoya. The marriage certificate was filed on the first of this month. Her co-star on the program, Nobutaka Tsubota said that Suzuki's husband is very handsome "like a cross between Go Ayano and Gen Hoshino." They have not yet decided on a wedding ceremony, possibly it will take place abroad. He proposed because he wants them to be together, and they are in the process of finding a living arrangement. When asked about children Suzuki felt like one would be good but her husand might like more. Would she teach her own children to skate? No, she would prefer to ask someone else to teach them"
