Comments from Frank last night on Mirai and Nationals here
stupid questions--but will frank be at the competiton at 4cc for Mirai since he showed up at the Premier, I believe he still has time if he left already.
he would be tired but would be there.
From the article linked above:
"I told Mirai long before the nationals started I was not going to go to the Four Continents," Carroll said.
A little more from the same article:
In Taipei, Nagasu -- who placed third at the 2011 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Greensboro, NC -- is accompanied by her ballet coach, Galina Barinova.
"She is in very good hands," Carroll said. "Galina is a wonderful, wonderful lady. Mirai is relaxed around her. She helps Mirai in many ways I don't help her. It's going to be a different influence and let's see how it turns out."
When asked if he was worried about how Mirai would skate, Carroll replied, "Hopefully homegirl will chill out and give us a superfreak performance in the LP this time."
Stop making me smile, neptune.
I'm glad Mirai was able to chill out and did indeed give a superfreak performance!
That made me smile. They sure have love/hate relationship most times Frank is funny!
Some more interesting things Frank said about Mirai. Quote Oh yes, I was very angry," he said. "There were things that didn't happen between the two of us and I think she learned something very valuable, because she seemed a different young lady afterwards. I hope I've finally gotten through to her.
"Sometimes working with skaters, it takes a long time before they really understand or get it. I think she's really made a breakthrough with it. So maybe not winning, coming third was a good thing."
