The Japan Skating Federation (JSF) elected former Winter Olympic women’s figure skating champion Shizuka Arakawa as its vice president on Wednesday.

Arakawa, who won Japan’s only gold medal of the 2006 Turin Olympics, has been a director at the JSF since 2012. Seiko Hashimoto was voted in for a fifth term as president.
