I was saddened, in sorrow, to see our idol, to blunder, fall and came last a few days ago in Tokyo. I was going, as usual to offer congratulations to his dad, like last year, when he was unbeatable, for whole season.
It is not the coaching alone, I an nurturing a 41/2 year old girl, doing ISI Level One Freestyle moves and show, (who skated her number before Patrick, in his ShenZhen extravaganza), and previously, had nurtured my elder daughter, in her heyday, to become a World Championship level Competition swimmer.
If you don't dedicate your strength to your sports, and waste it away at something unrelated, you are digging your own grave, competition wise.
Karen complained about this to Johnson, before, about letting her daughter to become the 24 hour companion of the skating champion. But she told me, the dancer coach scolded/cowered her into submission.
I did send email to Lewis, and darkly warned of competitors wanting to see an end to Patrick's success, and therefore he better seek a way out of this sorry predicament. But Karen still believes in Johnson's dancer input to Patrick's moves......Adieu Patrick, hope you are reading my postings.
