    Wow! Google translation is really wacky. I read it like she dumped Brian without warning. Can't wait for a good translation.

    The basics of it are that Yu-Na's mother went to Toronto to tell Orser and Tracy Wilson that they would not be continuing, and Orser stated that it was a sudden and pretty much unexplained split. She will continue using David Wilson for choreo, however. Orser also made a couple of nice remarks about how it was an honor to coach an athlete like Yu-Na. Seems like nobody expected this to happen, and considering the situation Orser really was a class act.

    I'm wondering if it means that Yu-na's essentially going to retire.

    Oh please let this article be wrong. I hope a native speaker translates this soon. I keep reading about "bra slang". Babble translation indeed...

    That is too bad. Orser is a great coach. Best of luck to both.

    Orser is always a class act.

    Do they really think they can find someone better? Orser took her to the very top, and they always seemed to have a great relationship.

    Thats what I'm wondering too...

    Or maybe she wants to train closer to home?

    I agree that the Google translation is terrible. Is it saying that David Wilson is going to be her new coach??? Or was he just her "coach" for the ice show they just did in Korea?
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    Maybe its not about finding someone better. Maybe Yu-na doesn't like living and training so far from home. I remember reading an article where her Dad talked about how difficult it was. Weird that it was the mother and not her. Plus it seems to me like Camp Orser is getting awfully crowded.

    Hey hey, let's not jump to any conclusions without having any information about the circumstances.

    My jaw is dropping open for the 2nd time today - Wow!

    Perhaps since she is not competing this year, they saw no need for a coach like Brian?

    Guess he will have more time for Christina and Adam now.
