    ORIGINAL POST - OCTOBER 2012 by Mrs. P


    It's clear from the U.S. Ladies thread that Mirai has a lot of loyal fans. And she should. When she's on, she can be magical. Regardless of the result, she's worthy of a fan thread.

    Hoping we'll see a great 2012-2013 season from her.

    I like Mirai's skating, and her energy, quickness, and playfulness. But I'm not her uber loyal fan. If this thread posters accept me, I might come here again sometimes later. If not, I'll certainly never come again like some other fan thread.

    Thanks Mrs. P. for starting a Mirai thread. I have always been a fan of her skating. The past couple of seasons she
    had some difficulties. Let's hope with the coaching change that we will see a renewed Mira and her beautiful skating again.

    Bluebonnet you wouldn't be talking about my main man Dai's thread, now would ya?

    I fell in love with Mirai at the Olympics, and I've been waiting ever since for her to become a major international threat, but it hasn't happened yet. Hopefully this will be her season. Good luck, Mirai!

    I wish Mirai had gotten two assignments as well, but I understand why Karen got the SA spot. I guess USFSA was waiting to see if Karen would get one of the sub spots since she was high on the list, and when she didn't get the TEB replacement spot, bit the bullet with Karen's host spot. I wonder how clear they are with the skaters about what role summer competitions play, I think that I read an article where Mirai mentioned that she and the other girls who only got one assignment were "fighting" for the SA spot..at least Mirai won $10,000 from her summer comps. What I am perplexed about is why Angela Wang got a spot at the Salt Lake senior B over Mirai. I hope Mirai gets another one.

    I really expected to see Mirai at Salt Lake. I'm confused as to why the usfsa would not give her the chance to get more competition time. Maybe Mirai will sign on to some of the European B events. She needs consistency and the experience to put together full performances.

    Michelle Kennedy interviewed Mirai for Examiner Skating. There are two articles but my assumption is they are from the same interview session. Glad she is staying positive and looking ahead.

    Mirai is going to be competing at the Nebelhorn Trophy this year, which incidentally is the only senior international competition where she won a gold medal (in 2011)!

    Congratulations to Mirai on an awesome long program at Finlandia She's currently moved up 4 places in the standings, and got a score of 111.58- the best she's done in a LP in some time.

    Very happy for her!

    Was just wondering since I didn't see the skates, why is her PCS in the FS so low? Hmm... A bad SP performance should not affect the FS PCS esp if it was skated really well.
