    Apparently Ando is back in Japan, having split with long-time coach (and reputed boyfriend) Morozov. Maybe that's part of the lack of motivation she is talking about. I would be surprised to see Ando back next season, but wouldn't be surprised if she returned for the Sochi season.

    I am rooting for her but, if I'm being honest, her skating doesn't move me. Nonetheless, I hope she does get to skate in Sochi and at least have one solid Olympic performance. Her results at the Games (5th and 15th) are not good for a two-time world champ.

    Phew, I was worried Miki would be joined by little Mikis and Morozovs. Good thing she split from him; she's so pretty and nice and deserves someone decent.

    She had something that worked great for her in 2010-2011. Never once lost a free skate! Not once. With her triple lutz-double loop combo and total backloading she was able to always get the points even if she made a mistake like 2a-2t instead of 2a-3t. There were no 3lz -3loops or quad salchows (no one ever expected one but they were always asked about and she would be like "Maybe!!). Her 2011 4CC performance was great and beat a great Mao Asada. Her skating and wins was about how COP can be used and maybe not involving or interesting but her new SP starting at the 2010 GPF was very good on all levels really.
