Sugai Madoka wins Prix de Lausanne

Japan's Madoka Sugai won the top prize Saturday at the Prix de Lausanne, a prestigious international ballet competition for young dancers aged 15 to 18. 

Sugai, a 17-year-old high school student in Tokyo, also won the prize for contemporary dance.

"I can't believe that I won," Sugai told reporters after an award ceremony. "I feel as if I am still in a dream of dance."

Sugai will be awarded a scholarship to cover her tuition at the ballet academy of her choice for a year. Sugai said she wants to go to Birmingham Royal Ballet in Britain.
