Is it will or the other girls skated better? She lost to Zagitova in Cup of China by less than 2 points when Zagitova beat everyone. Was that lack of will? And Wakaba has beaten everyone of those skaters in different competitions except Kihira. Where was their will on those nights? Nobody is arguing that Wakaba hasnt under achieved for her talent, but that is part of sports sometime.RIka Kihira: Won Nationals. Won Senior Grand Prix Finals. Won Four Continents. Twice.
Kaori Sakamoto: Won Nationals. Won Four Continents
Satoko Miyahara: Won Four Consecutive Nationals. Won Four Continents. Former #1 Ranked Skater In The World.
Heck, even underarchievers like Mai Mihara and Kanako Murakami have a Four Continents title to their name.
But, Wakaba, with all those chances...no major titles to speak of. Try as she might, she cannot find the will to finish on top.
