    Time for Mirai to prove that she is serious.

    I'm really looking forward to her in Taiwan. At the moment, Four Continents is her last major competition for this Olympic season so I hope she can use the frustration and anger she must be feeling and channel it into two knock out skates.

    The field isn't that strong and she can medal if her jumps are round.

    It's time for her to stick it to the USFSA!

    More like it's time for her to get new programs and rotate those triples!

    Well, she can't get new programs before 4CCs. And besides - not every skater can afford new programs right away. Top choreographers are expensive, some charge upwards of $5000.00 for an SP and $10,000.00 for a FS.

    I hope she continues to train with Mura in Japan. There was noticeable improvement between NHK to Rostelecom to Nationals. She doesn't really have any other choice but to stick with her programs but I do hope On Golden Pond becomes a short program I hope she kills it at 4CC and at least gets to go to Worlds.

    Yes I agree. She needs to show up at the start of the season prepared. She usually is prepared for nationals. She needs a coach that can help her keep up with the younger skaters. She needs either the 3lutz/3toe or 3flip/3toe in her LP. She has proven that she can land the jumps when prepared. Time to grow up and take charge of her career.

    I hope she has a good performance at four continents.

    That's a lot to ask anyone. I just hope she continues to develop but I do wonder if she will retire. It is expensive to train and Mirai has been doing this for a while. I am not sure she wants to end up like Zhang or Flatt who place so low at Nationals we didn't really see them and that appears to be their farewell.;

    Mirai programs had no transitions or choreography and she does not rotate her jumps

    IMO, Mirai got treated pretty shabbily. I hope she does have a great skate in Taiwan, Though I have to cheer for Brooklee Han.

    Same could be said about Ashley's "crazy" fans. Every time I visit GS there is a new thread subject on each of these ladies.

    Haven't seen any practice reports for Mirai, only for the Japanese ladies and Zijun Li.

    I think 1 of 2 scenarios will pan out for Mirai:

    1. She will channel her anger and turn it into something positive, setting herself up for next season well and getting back "in" with the international judges.

    OR

    2. She will self-implode because of her frustration

    Hopefully it will be #1!

    A lot of skaters have talked about how difficult it is to finish the season strong after missing the Olympic/World's team, so I don't think that a poor placement at 4CC will prove anything. A good placement would be a nice FU to the USFSA, tho.
