    Sounds like Mama Nagasu could give Mama Kim and Mama Joubert a run for their money...

    Do you remember who conducted the interview/where it was published?

    To clarify: This was posted as hearsay information on Golden Skate on February 9, 2012, and not in a published article (we aren't privy as to why Nagasu's mother supposedly said no): http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=3473978&postcount=244

    And GS closed that thread, because it became impossible to keep hearsay information out of it. You'd unapprove one post with it, and two more would pop up before you know it.

    So "buyer beware" on this information. GS does not vouch for it.

    Not even close. Mirai's mother is very complimentary to other skaters and is very friendly. She seems to understand her daughter, however, and makes decisions that are best for her as a person.

    ^ For argument's sake, which So. Cal. rink w/ coach is closest to the Nagasu household?

    El Segundo? Or technically Pasadena but no top coaches currently work out of there.

    ITA. It's a nice color on her and she looks nice as either a blonde or a brunette.

    It looks as if she has had blonder highlights applied to her hair, so it's not that huge a change. I agree she looks fine either way.

    I've been wondering about that too. She hasn't updated her twitter since she mentioned it was 'hacked'.

    :blah:

    I hope she makes the best decision for herself this season-whatever that may be.

    It's a bit too light for her features. If she wanted to go blond I think she should have gone couple of shades lighter.

    I normally don't comment on hair/costume/fashion stuff, but on that topic, thought it looked better before.

    Like CZhang, I'm concerned the brouhaha over her 4CC comment may have scared her off...(seriously, it wasn't THAT big of a deal)

    Congrats to Ashley for coming off a 4th place finish at Worlds! The best US ladies placement since Kimmie's fourth place finish at Worlds in 2007 five years ago. I wasn't a big fan of hers, but now she's made me into a believer. :D Her reputation with the international judges will continue to grow and I only see things going up from here for her in the future.

    fantastic season for Ashley, a very good finish, the FS was impressive as it shows off the passionate skater she is. too bad for that step out of Thursday. she just needs to conquer the sp monster. i know she can do it. way to go Ash! you're one of the best in the world!

    wonder if Ashley was in the dark as to Czisny's placement after lp before she skated?

    if not, what pressure for her to be under to save the 2 spots on her own!

    It wasn't really much of a risk...honestly, it wasn't. All Ashley had to do was place at least 12th.

    Either way, congrats Ash! Knew you had it in you. Always did. :)

    I've always considered Ashley a good US #2 because while she seldom rocks it (except at 4CC), she seldom bombs either. I'm surprised she's not sent to the world championship sooner. (I know bad luck at nationals and all, but still, she really would have done okay at worlds the previous years --okay meaning top 12)

    But now, perhaps she can be US #1. :)

    Ashley has always been one of my sentimental favorites, and I'm estastic over Ashley's prospects in the upcoming seasons. If these girls are pacing for Sochi, this was the season to have a breakthrough and thank goodness that at least one of the US ladies pulled it off!

    I hope Ashley can now build a reputation so she can be held up like the other skaters XD

    Well she was close to getting a medal... But whatever, 4th isn't bad at all at your second Worlds. After all, Sasha was 4th at her second Worlds... I guess that means she'll be 2nd next year! :D
