According rosewood from FSU who translated a recent report in the Japanese, Mr. Mura is only a 'temporary coach' for Mirai. But he did such a great job with her considering the very short time they had together between NHK - Nationals it'd be wonderful if somehow Mirai could train with him permanently - if she hopefully chooses to compete another season. And I hope that she does. I still believe there's a lot of untapped potential in Mirai.
Untapped potential indeed but I am not sure it was meant to be tapped. I just would like Mirai to be happy with or without skating. It is so terrible it is as if life is dependent on skating for some people. And at such a cost - emotional, physical, family, friends, education and financial.
I don't think doing what you love and aiming for higher things and trying to excel is "terrible" at all. I for one hope Mirai continues on. Maybe "the best is yet to come".
"They told us not to wish in the first place, not to aspire, not to try; to be quiet, to play nice, to shoot low and aspire not at all.
They are always wrong. Follow your dreams. Make your wishes. Create the future. And above all, believe in yourself. "
Just saw this interview with Mirai.
She says she has settled on a new coaching situation and will be moving out of her parents' home. She also talks about how she dealt with the Olympics, working/skating with Adam Rippon, and doing slower/more dramatic programs next season.
Very curious to see who her new coach will be.
I really hope she can get into a coaching situation that works for her. I've enjoyed watching her Twitter the last couple months, she seems to be having a great time doing SOI and Denis Ten's show. Hopefully being around all these other top skaters will help keep that fire and passion for skating alive for her.
I cant wait to see her this season. Mirai is going to smash it! Im looking forward to seeing her new programs
