Held on 4/6 w/ foreign journalists. Topics covered were her professional and personal goals, relationships with the other top skaters and her sister, Mai, her goals at the 2010 Olympics; relationship with the media, her experiences in the US etc.
Personally, I am impressed to see 16-year-old Mao could maintain a natural, honest, relaxed attitude at a possibly intimidating setting. Some of the questions were negative and intrusive; but her responses were all positive and happy.
