    Who Will Be Mao's New Coaches?

    I speculate that

    - Mr. Kozuka may play some role because he is an advisor at Chukyo University.

    - Mr. Sato also may be available now that Yukari retired.

    - Mr. Nagakubo may be an excellent jump coach, but he is taking care of Akiko.

    - Takeshi Honda may be available parttime.

    - Ms. Machiko Yamada may not be available, but she could be a mentor to help her psychologically.

    I sincerely hopes that Mao uses not only TAT, but also goes back to Lori Nichol or use Tom Dickson. I am getting tired of melancholic selection of hers.

    Yes, always was a great athlete and with the years became the most sublime skater. I think she lacks Kristi's total versatility as a dancer on ice but I'd say she has the best edges of anyone skating then or now. I'd rather watch her skate than just about anyone. And I loved how she learned pairs to keep her hubby skating after he lost his former partner. Her soft beautiful style is so elegant. Just love Yuka!

    Yuka said she hates jumping but loves skating.

    Mao's mom said she wanted shizuka arakawa as Mao's new coach in her recent interview. She really admires Arakawa's beautiful Ina Bauer and her artistry. And she said they wanted relatively young coach because Mao is shy of strangers and a little bit socially inept. I think it's great idea.

    interesting idea. I guess Morozov is officially not an option now that he is going back to team Russia and Miki is not retiring. I would like to see Shiuzka/Mao team, if only for how cute they would look in the kiss and cry together!

    Wow, it's very rare for a news like that coming out before decided.

    Shizuka of course would be fantastic for Mao but she may be too many things going on for herself yet.

    Mao's mom also said her daughter needed a coach and friend. (Mao really needs real friends besides her mom and sister Mai. ) I hope Shizuka accept her offer. It would be really a perfect team.
