I said, “No! Mirai is a US Representative!”
February 19th, 2011 JST

Mirai Nagasu who was the 4th place in the short program, smiled a wry smile, saying, "No, Mirai is US Representative!", because it happened that the announcement in the arena before her performance introduced her as Japan Representative.

We heard that she was shocked because she missed a chance to enter the US Representative for the Worlds which is held in Japan, in US Nationals in January. 17 years old who was active as the 4th place at the Vancouver Olympics which she participated to for the first time, promised the good acting at the free skating, saying, "I would like to skate so that everybody think that they wanted to watch Mirai in the Worlds!".

Nagasu whose parents are Japanese got the medal for the first time in the senior championship competition which is hosted by ISU.

After performing almost perfectly the FS which she faced to with the 4th place in SP, her showy action clenching her fists in triumph popped out.
In this season, she missed the participation to the Worlds which she had aimed at. 17 years old who answered the press interview both in Japanese and in English, told her dream, saying, 'My skating is the skating of child yet, but I would like to be said, "Mirai is the 1st place" by everybody someday. I would like to become the 1st place in the world'.

So Frank has already pushed Mirai into politics, huh? What's next? Is he going to make her audition for American Idol too? ;)
