    I love all the details that Barry Mittan is able to get in his interviews.

    Beautiful picture, too.

    So, will Mirai be THE ONE?

    Thanks for the link. She is truly challenging and her attitude is simply "Mirai-culous", isn't it?

    Isn't 2 hours/day on ice training too short as a top-skater?
    I wonder if she has a dificulty to juggle the training with her academic work.

    I know it depends, but how many hours a day do elite skaters practice on/off ice in general?

    Mirai-culous? That's the corniest name pun I've ever heard! Poor girl, I'm going to be snickering every time I hear her name announced!
