    Do we really need yet another thread? The one in the Trash Can (where it belongs) is plenty.

    I'm so glad to hear this! I have to apologize for my response in the other thread, I didn't mean to come off as thinking that she SHOULD quit, I think she only should do it on HER terms, and if she still loves it, she absolutely SHOULD continue as long as she has the passion for it...I've always loved Fumie!

    I so admire skaters who continue to skate for themselves and personal goals. Go Fumie! She's always been a classy competitor.

    Fumie stinks as a skater now. HER SKATING IS JUST AWFUL. As a former medalist at Worlds and a decent former competitor, how can she continue? She MUST be mortified every time she tries to skate a program competitively.

    Reality check - - - - FUMIE, YOU SUCK! Get off the ice, you delusional stupid woman!

    If there was a concert, I would yell, "FREE BIRD!!!!!!!!" to Fumie.

    SorryBoutIT.

    The only thing to be "mortified" or "SorryBout" is your own rudeness and meanness.

    Reality check: as long as Fumie continues to enjoy skating, more power to her.

    It's a bit cynical that the more tkaug dises her, the more FSUers encourages Fumie. :p

    My rough translation of the article tkaug posted on this thread.

    Suguri at the age of 32,
    still a lot to challange, "I want to keep skating till I can give the performance I'm aiming at."


    Suguri, the veteran at the age of 32, has failed in qualifying for Nationals for three years in a row. "My feeling is that I want to skate better. I want to keep skating till I can give the performance I'm aiming at," she indicated to continue competing.

    She finished the short program in the place of 9th and tried to turn it around in the long. However, her mistakes with the jumps costed her and she ended up in the 12th place over all. Although she failed in appearing at Olympics for the first time in the two quads, she appreciated people, "I'm supported by cheers from my fans and the words like "I want you to try your best" from the people in their thirties as I am."

    ETA:
    Another article which has a photo of her FS.

    I thought at first that Suguri was just messing with tkaug's mind, but then :sekret: texted me that she has already picked out her programs for next season:

    Short Program
    Free Skate
    Exhibition

    :rockstar:

    I believe that was her 2009 Nationals performance.

    She sounds delusional at this point. Before long her scores will be approaching Novice. Is that the performance she's aiming at? :eek:
