Two questions about the new World Champion:
1. Do you think Shizuka is a "one skate wonder" a la Sarah Hughes' OGM or have we seen the arrival of a first-rate competitor who will consistently place in the top 3?
2. What should she work on in the off season?
Discuss. OT, I am a little concerned how Shizuka will fare with the Japanese Federation. When Midori won Worlds in 1989, I always had the sense (perhaps incorrectly) that the federation was putting a lot of pressure on her and she seemed to mentally struggle with the expectations, particularly in Albertville. Maybe things have changed since then -- I hope they don't lean on Arakawa too much.
