    New Asada sisters articles

    Two new articles are up in English on the Japan Skates site:

    http://www.japanskates.com/

    Click on "Interview with lots of pics" and "Mao, Mai, Miki set for Campbells."

    Excerpts: "Mao was 154cm last year but she grew 8cm in one year and now she is same height as her sister Mai."

    "United Airlines announced on the 28th that United and the sisters have made a contract for partnership. United Airlines will provide business class seats for the sisters and support their activity."

    (It doesn't say how much money is involved in United's "support," but the upgrade is nice. )

    8 cm (~3") in one year - that's huge. Let's see how she will adapt to her new height.

    What has, over-ratted, Rafael Artuerian produced... Michelle Kwan was on on a downslide when he started working with her... and as for Jeff Buttle, he was on an upswing with his full-time coach Lee Barkell.

    That height gain for Asada is going to be real interesting. Will that slow her down? mess up her jumps? Or will it make her more determined?

    Wow, I really hope Mao's body-type is like Fumie's, so she can keep on doing her jumps for a few more years. I'll try not to make assumptions about her growth-spurt until I see her at Campbells.

    Well, she did fine (as in superbly) at that recent pro-am event in Japan, didn't she?

    Have no idea what you're talking about. You mean the one in May?
