I figured that some would wonder what she is up to and who her coach will be.
Mao left for Russia on May 31st to get a new LP from Tarasova. No words on SP yet, so it is possible that she may recycle this year's. Up until she left, she kept a very low profile and also kept the media exposure to a very minimum in order to concentrate on her training, especially her strength, fitness, endurance as well as triple salcow. Mao said in her interview that she felt much stronger than she was at the end of last season and is ready to take on new challenges.
