Please don’t say such a thing about Nanami Abe. I feel so sad….
She had been Yuzu’s coach since 2005-2006 at least. I think she discovered and developed his faculties.
His success is of course due to his natural talent but depend on her way of the instruction.
Not widely known even in Japanese fan, Abe is instructor of miyagi FigureSkatingClub(Yuzuru belonged once).
She isn’t only his coach and his choreographer , furthermore she is a mother of two little children.
A smaller one is maybe about four or five year’s old(Sorry this is not accurate information!!!).
And the rink environment is VERY poor in Japan. His excessively short training time is not the only his physical examination and school.
He became very famous especially after the 2012 World Championship, he won’t practice at all I suspected.(Before 2012 World , you see he responded many fans at rink). didn’t have a private rink like Mao or Takahashi(They have both university’s rink.)
Therefore, it was limit of training Sendai for him. If he leave Sendai, she must leave,too, But she has family including children in Japan….
She must send away Yuzuru with tears….
I realize my post was not advertent regarding Abe.
I know she is a respectable coach!
