Just saw a newsclip from Japanese TV and a comment by Daisuke Takahashi was very telling.

"I know Mao's mother well and I hadn't seen her at competitions in a while so I was wondering how she was."

That suggests to me that Mao's mother has been battling with whatever illness she has for quite a while now. :(

I heard a rumor a few years ago the reason Mao didn't train abroad and didn't leave Japan was someone in her family's health issue. But it was just a rumor and she has never said a word about it.

A friend of mine happened to sit near her family at a ballet concert last year's summer, and she said that she had been shocked by an unusually dark complexion of Mao's mum. She said her mum must have had some disease, maybe something was wrong with her liver.

(((Mao and her mother)))

I can't imagine how she has balanced an elite skating career with the illness of her Mother which appears to have been an ongoing situation. My thoughts are with her, her Mum, Mai and the whole family. :(
