I´m late to the party but: Wheee! great news!
Zorry my english, I´m a verrrrrry rude spaÑish
The memory of mine is from a newpaper article about Machiko Yamada that was written pretty recently.
I remember it because it was a kind of surprise to me that she wants to grow a nice person in a skater first, rather than a strong competitor. As a coach who brought up Midori Ito, Yukari Nakano, Mao Asada and Kanako Murakami, I'd thought she must have been a very strict coach who focused only on bringing up strong skaters.
A part of the article really impressed me that she often says to her students something like, "Become a nice person, and you can be happy off the ice as well and your life will be nice too."
