I posted this in the Mirai fan thread but here it is again in case anyone missed it:
Naomi Lang made this comment on her FB account: "So good to see Douglas Razzano and Mirai Nagasu at the Ice Den today working so hard towards Nationals next week. Show 'em how it's done guys! I'll be the loudest one in the stands next week cheering for you." https://www.facebook.com/naomi.lang....ocation=stream
I'll be amongst the loudest too cheering for Mirai.
I really think training in Japan will pay off for her, I feel that she has found a training environment that works for her and it sounds like she is working hard. I'll never count Mirai out because when she is on she could be that one that can shake up the podium a bit. With rotated triples and sass to match she could take it all. I believe that she has it in her and will be cheering for her as well!
I think she only trained properly that first year she won Nationals and 2010 (meaning run throughs), so she wasn't confident in her ability to deliver. If she has been training run throughs in Japan, perhaps her confidence will return under pressure.
Who was the lady with Mirai during the SP? And why have articles been saying that Mirai has been "coaching herself" since leaving Evidente? There was another article that says that but below is Hersh's article.
ANYWAYS I WENT BUCK WILD DURING MIRAI'S SP!!!! WAS SOOOOOOOOOOO ELATED FOR HER. She is the total dark horse for the FS, everyone is counting her out, love it tho bc less pressure for Mirai and it may motivate her to prove them wrong.
That was Mirai's ballet coach(?), Galina, who also accompanied her a couple times (like at 2011 4CC).
