Three-time defending women’s national champion Satoko Miyahara, who missed this month’s Four Continents and Asian Winter Games with a hip injury, will resume full training sometime in March, Japan Skating Federation director Yoshiko Kobayashi said Tuesday.

Kobayashi said Miyahara intends to compete at the March 29-April 2 world championships in Helsinki. The worlds will determine the number of places awarded to each country at next year’s Pyeongchang Olympics.
