This evening around 6:30pm pacific time, I received an excited phone call shouting...Andrew "Flip" Filipowski's "Alexandria" Kohaku, had done it! Made history once again!

All Japan Show Grand Champion!

After making history by taking consecutive Kokugyo Prizes in 2006 and 2007, Alexandria was moved up to the most competitive size division in the All Japan Show for 2008...90bu. Although she faced stiff competition from a massive Dainichi Showa, when all the votes were counted Flips Kohaku came out the hands down favorite.

Today's honors mark the first time ever that an American-owned koi has been granted the title "Grand Champion" of the biggest koi show in the world...the All Japan Combined Koi Show.

Did we mention that this is the first time that an American koi dealer has sold a koi that made All Japan Grand Champion? Yes, Pan Intercorp!

Pan Intercorp proudly congratulates Flip on this amazing achievement and is grateful to have been given the opportunity to be a part of this historical event.

Congratulations Flip! From all of us at Pan Intercorp.
