IFS OCTOBER 2018
Japanese superstar Daisuke Takahashi graces the October 2018 cover. After a four-year hiatus, the 32-year-old is returning to competition. His motivation to return is not fueled by money or fame, but a desire to close out his career on his own terms.

Daisuke Takahashi is aware of the risks of returning to competition after a four-year hiatus, but his reasons for coming back are strictly personal.
This time, he is skating for himself.
