NOOOO!!! Bawling But yes, it's good that she's taking time off. I hope she heals quickly. Worship

Do Taka/Tran have to compete at nationals? I mean, it's not like there are any other pairs in Japan. If Narumi is still healing from her injury at that point, I think it would be better to take it easy and postpone competing until 4cc .

here's a video of them :

It seems that they were working really hard. . . I really hope Narumi heals asap.

I think they still have to compete at Nationals even if you're the only contender in that category. Maybe they base it on the score they get in that competition also? It's always like that in Japan. You really have to compete and earn your spot even if you are a sure winner already.

you are right. like Haruka and Dice may be not top 3 in the country but we are very sure they are good enough to qualify nationals. but they still need to attend Eastern Japan for qualifying Nationals if they don't have competition schedule conflict. same apply to Miki, all of us know she is good enough to qualify but if she didn't participate sectional, she can't qualify Western Japan then go to Nationals.

From Mervin's tweets:

Quote :

Sorry to announce that Narumi and I will not be doing the Grand Prix series due to a shoulder operation that Narumi badly needs.

Quote :
Unfortunately it will be 3 months of recovery before rehab. Fortunately at 20 and 22 years old, we have time.

Quote :
I will now sign off with a modified quote from a former Governor of California, "We'll be back"

Looks like it's a really bad injury. I hope Narumi will heal well.

Based on Narumi's comments, they felt they are going to different direction but both of them still want to compete...so both of them will find other partner.

This is so, so, soooooo sad. I'm in shock. They were getting better and improving each season. To come to this.....

Read Mervin's tweet earlier and thought that's quite deep. Must have meant this news.

Narumi is still injured, right?

I hope when they try to find new partners, especially for Narumi, they'll find one with the same citizenship.

Narumi had surgery for her shoulder and knee. but I think she is recovery well because she went to sochi to watch GPF.
I think Marvin has more choices than Narumi since Narumi wants to find Japanese to pair with for Olympics.
You just can feel that they aim for different goals now since it's almost hopeless to get Japan nationality for Marvin.
feel like this is the reason ended their partnership.

then...there is no pair for team japan in WTT...uh

To think he tweeted this a couple of days ago:

He mustn't have expected this at all.

I've cared for them as if they were my own kids since I first saw them live in WTT...this is really shocking and sad for me. I have no words at the moment. Depressed Crying

OMG, if Japan can't compete in Team event, wouldn't that be a problem for not only Japan but also for the event ? I mean, there aren't many countries that can compete in a team event am I right ? There will only be 4 countries ?

What did he mean by cats ?? sounds like Narumi suddenly decided it's over ? doesn't soud they parted on good term. But somewhere in me think they might reconcile again.

Oh nooo!!! Bawling Depressed Crying Sad, Lonely I never saw it coming. Before worlds in Nice, Narumi was OK with not competing at Oly's, I guess the medal changed her mind... there was no way Mervin would get JPN citizenship. I guess Skate Canada is celebrating, he is a good partner.

I don't want to be pesimistic, but IMO that's it for Narumi, I don't see her getting any japanese partner, or at least not a good one. Are there even any japanese partners available? this seriously sucks.

I still don't understand what suddenly happened, that made them split, they had alot of succes together, were a good team. there has to be something we don't know about, cause this really looks strange to me!

And, from Mervin's Twitter, I quote:

Mervin Tran ‏@skate_moivo
Now that the cat is out of the bag. I want to say that I hate cats and this is not what I was shopping for. But Narumi has decided, its over

So, this is definitely Narumi's decision. Poor guy.

Th only explanation that comes to my mind is that JSF has already a Japanese partner for Narumi. They must have a pair team eligible for Olympics to be able to enter the team competition. So my assumption is that they first tried to push for citizenship for Mervin, but when it became clear it won't happen in time for Olympics, if at all, they decided to team Narumi up with someone else.
If that's true, that won't be good for Narumi since there are no Japanese partners on her level and the new team will be much worse than Takahashi/Tran. Sad

Hi everyone, I had been lurking this forum for quite a while and I finally joined

i feel so sad for mervin and narumi. Does anybody know what happened? i can't believe this, it's like i just watched them won the broze at the wc a couple of weeks ago, watched how cute is narumi back then and now they have to split Sad

i just can't believe it...

my assumption is Narumi maybe wants Mervin to find another partner so that he can compete in the Olympics. i don't know.. i can't think Mad

Some Narumi news...

http://www.flutzingaround.com/2013/01/in-some-not-so-shocking-news.html

I'm agreeing with this guy. She dropped Mervin due to citizenship issues. Well... we'll see how this works out for her. I think Mervin was her perfect partner. They looked so beautiful together, and they had only been together for a few years!
