Mao is still a multi-World Champ, Olympic medalist, multi-millionaire who has broken all kinds of records in figure skating. Would she be happier if there was less pressure and scrutiny? Probably. But I don't get the impression that she can't handle it.
Oh, she can definitely handle it, she's not a headcase or anything. But that doesn't mean that I can't feel bad for her all the same because of said pressure. I feel bad for Yuna, too. Just call me a sap! :P

this thread reeks of being inflamed and strated by a Yuna Uber which is as bad.
I really don't think a Yuna uber would have said that Yuna didn't face that much pressure, lmao. Not every thread that isn't 100% favorable to your faves (and I don't think this thread was even bashing Mao, just talking about how a lot of pressure was put on her, which actually garners a lot of sympathy) is started by a rival fan. Some of you sound so paranoid when you talk like that, lol.

(Are you now going to tell me that the poster just said that about Yuna to cover their tracks? Well, it takes all kinds, I guess... )
