    What's "the sign of 'R'?"
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    I was surprised when she even competed at Worlds.

    Okay, that makes sense. Thanks, riveredge.

    ATS talked to the media: it seems that Orser and Yuna were in uncomfortable terms ever since the rumor about the possibility of Orser's coaching "the other skater" began circulated. Since June, Yuna practically trained without Orser's assistance. In early August, Yuna's side suggested that Yuna's side and Orser have some time off, and he agreed. On Aug. 23rd, Orser notified Yuna's side his decision of not continuing as her coach, and Yuna's side agreed. Yuna said in her statement through All That Sports that she thanks her former coach for always being on her side as she achieved the goal of winning the Olympic goal medal and she wishes all the best for Orser and hopes he has an excellent coaching career with great athletes.

    It couldn't have been about money. Orser was the best thing for Yuna ever. They probably would (and could) pay him whatever amount he asks for if she seriously wants to continue.

    The COP changes over the summer did it I think. Now that she has won everything there is to win and has CRAZY money, there is so little motivation to wake up every morning to work on the 3loop and 3axel which she must have to stay competitive for gold against Asada. GOEs won't be worth as much and cheated 3/3s will be rewarded much more. It's a smart time to go.

    I guess Orser was surprised because he wanted (and pushed for) Yuna to continue, and she kept refusing to commit, until recently where she just had to cut him out, either because he was too nice or too pushy.

    When I talked to Brian at Skate Detroit, I asked him how it was going for the season with Yuna. He said (and he looked so tired) that Yuna needed a rest. That it seemed like one unending season from last year. She needed some time off. I got the impression he didn't want to talk about it any more then that. The summer before he loved to talk about the season. He also said that Yuka was over extended (in terms of endorsements and shows).
    I doubt Brian is going to be losing much. He has a lot of kids at SD. Gao reminds me a lot of a young Yuna. But boy he looked tired.

    Following the article above. ATS said
    ● Since May it was uncomfortable to train with him because of the rumor of another skater's offer to be his/her coach.
    ● Yu-Na trained alone from June.
    ● Ms, Park suggested coach Brian to have a break on the contract for a while early this month.
    ● On 23, Aug, ATS received Coach Brian's final decision that he declined her coach.

    And Yu-Na said "I really appreciate Coach Brian Orser to be with me to make my dream of Olympic champion" and "I wish his great success with his other pupils."

    She plans to continue to train there and considers training plan and scouting a new coach later.
    Similar with amaro's post.

    So it was Brian who made the final decision.....that makes much more sense. Well while the door is open, will Mao walk through it?

    ATS and IMG seem to be operating in alternate realities.

    Surprise, surprise.

    I must say I'm loving the blame Mao angle ATS is throwing out. Pure entertainment. Considering the train wreck Yu-Na's last coaching split was, you have to believe this is going to get a lot more interesting.

    It depends on whose story you believe.....IMG or ATS.....since it seems both stories are a complete contradiction to each others!
