Sadly, she got criticized for her belief because male skaters were all about figures, jumps and spins in those days in Japan, but she did not changed her belief.
I had my head cooled down a bit...
According to IN, Daisuke is going to work with Lori for 2012-13 season, and it says 'programs', so that means 2 programs, right?
Okay. Let me put things in order...........
-Patrick wo'nt work with Lori, but with David Wilson and Jeffrey Buttle
-Daisuke, instead, will work with Lori, and probably for 2 programs
-Evgeni has contracted with Pasquale Camerlengo for 2 seasons until Sochi Olympics
-Yuruzu has joined Team Brian Orser. Rumored choreographer is going to be Wilso, but not confirmed yet
-Petrenko is going to do choreo for Michal's SP. I am not so sure if it's a good idea, though...
-Zueva will do choreo for Takahiko again. Not so sure for this one, either.
-Tom Dickson will do choreo for Nobunari's SP. And Lori for his LP
-Johnny will come back with 'Firebird' program. Rumored landing quads
...Life is full of mysteries all the time. So does Mens figure skating.........Why not?
Many of my favorite boys are going to explore new directions, try to expand range of their styles, or at least go for something different the upcoming season. That's why I LOVE MENS FIGURE SKAITNG!
It's going to be a very interesting and surprising season! Really looking forward to it! :D

Ooo Daisuke with Lori!!! I expect he will skate classic European then :P Can't wait!!! I just love how he keep rotating choreographers and willing to try different styles year after year. I wonder if he will get some Lori bonus this year, hope so.... haha, and he will deserve every 0.1 point of it
