Anyway, my point is that this was made a bigger deal then it should have, which has already established in the posts after mine.
No one's making a big deal out of anything here. Just tried to point out that Orser gave an answer.
"we never dare to do such a thing that hurts the friendship.." This is Mao's reaction, which implies this is something she won't do rather than a casual, doable, no-biggie thing.
But her agency did do "such a thing" and regardless Mao knew about it or not and she shouldn't have denied it like that. At least she should have asked her agency what's going on?
Right after that denial, Orser said it is true. Then there's no comment from Mao's.
Even if Mao didn't know the whole thing, it is such a stupid situation imo.
To a person like myself who doesn't believe Mao didn't know, the situation implies lies so it's worse.
Either way, I wish her agency had some social decency.
I would like to see a source directly quoting Orser's words on the alleged offer.
And, I hope Yuna's dispute will settle down soon without further involving other athletes who have nothing to do with her problem.
Mao's agent, Mariko Wada of IMG, on Sunday and asked her to provide some clarity on the issue.
"Very surprising," she wrote in an e-mail of the initial reports. "We never contacted him and never thought about it."
Orser did not respond to an e-mail requesting further elaboration.
