    There have been rumors on the skating boards that she is training in Budapest with TAT. I repeat "rumor" I have no idea if it is true.

    Thanks to all for posting photos, the cast is looking fabulous!

    To clarify, all the forums I visit mentioned that Mao was training in Budapest with Nobuo Sato and another gray-haired man (Caucasian in appearance, according to the person who reported the rumour in the first place). No TAT in sight, although Mao did work with her (in Russia) on her new LP.


    Back to DOI, here's a few news clips:

    I have been looking for Kristi Yamaguchi's program to this song FOREVER but I can never find it. It was one of the cutest programs I'd ever seen but I can't find it anywhere! :mad:

    Thanks, YukiNieve! Tatsuki Machida really performed his heart out and his jumps are sky high!
