Not sure if it's been posted, but it's a quite insightful article about Mirai and Frank's relationship, Frank's coaching style and Mirai's mental issue, with cute mention of Evan and Mirai's friendship.
Nagasu's biggest challenge could be her own doubts
"I've grown up in a culture that it's more important to hear the negative aspects and where you can improve rather than the compliments," Nagasu said. "A lot of times compliments can go to your head. So I'd rather hear the negative parts. But sometimes it's not always good, so Frank does a really good job with that."
Indeed, it was Carroll's no-nonsense style that made Nagasu want to train with him in the first place.She switched that summer to Carroll, who demands discipline and focus at every practice. ...
And what Carroll didn't expect of Nagasu, training mate Evan Lysacek did. The Vancouver gold medalist works so hard Carroll often had to hold him back, and Nagasu couldn't help but be influenced by his work ethic.
"Evan and I have been texting each other and he asked me about Mirai, and I said, `She needs you, get here. She needs you to scream at her,'" Carroll said with a laugh. "She always felt she couldn't get away with anything because she wasn't working as hard as he was so she'd better try harder. He was a great influence. And they're very good friends. He's sort of like her big brother."
Added Nagasu, "He never has a bad day and I really like training with him because it motivates me. ... If I could copy him and become a champion, that would be great.""She's a very emotional girl," Carroll said. "Unfortunately, this sport is based on getting the job done and being consistent. And consistency is not just doing the elements and skating consistently. It's also handling yourself consistently. That part of her is something that she really will need to do in the future, be able to control her emotions better."
