It was also implied that she has been dropped by several coaches. Not sure if that's true or if their parting was mutual.

    I think if Mirai is to continue skating, and I hope she does, that she needs to pull up her big girl panties figuratively, get a coach and get the focus. She certainly has the talent.
    If this person was indeed a coach, I think it was irresponsible of him to be talking about Mirai's coaching situation/difficulties, and especially to be implying that she was dropped by coaches, etc.

    At any rate, it was nice to see Mr. Mura with Mirai at 4CC.

    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. "
