Rika Kihira, Shoma Uno Win ‘Four Continents’ Figure Skating Championships

Sixteen-year-old prodigy Rika Kihira’s perfect free routine and Shoma Uno’s world-record free skate performance warmed the hearts of the audience at the Honda Center in California — and impressed the judges. Both won the singles individual titles at the Four Continents Championships.

The Four Continents Figure Skating Championships (4CC) is an annual competition where participants are either from Africa, the Americas, Asia, or Oceania. Europe was omitted by the International Skating Union when the event was conceived in 1999 in order to allow non-European countries to participate in a competition similar to previous European Figure Skating Championships.
