Apparently Mao decided to left Rafael because she got tired of being away from her friends/family for so long. Sad Also it looks like her school wasn't happy that she didn't attend any classes. Mao now stays in Japan, where she trains without coach. She will decide on a new coach after Worlds.

I'm a bit sad, because she seemed to work with Rafael so well. Depressed Crying But staying away from her environment for so long must have been very difficult, too.

I wish Mao best of luch, it must be difficult to train without any proffesional guidance. Sad

That's kind of sad...
But it must be hard to train far from her family and friends and I understand her situation, it's a good decision I think, Mao and Mai will be happier near their family and friends!
Good luck Mao for worlds!!

Very strange indeed...

In this one the author claims that Mao is still with Arutunian... Whirly

http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/sp20080228f1.html

So many contradicting news, I don't even know what to think anymore! I just hope Mao has support where she trains in Japan and that the situation will be cleared up soon. I have a feeling that the press made a much bigger deal of this than it should have. Lips sealed

on golden skate forum http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?t=20134&page=9
Someone said that Fuji TV aired some practice of MAO!

Quote :
Fuji TV sports news aired, 2 and a half hours ago, Mao practicing in the Chukyo rink. The reporter clearly stated that she's coachless. But Mao looked happy as usual, relaxed, saying she's now refining her elements and that she's very excited towards the Worlds. The nuance seemed to me that she can't wait till she displays on the ice of Scandinavium what she herself is making better now.

Does someone have video of it?

Just rewatched Mao's heavenly Free Skate from the Worlds-2007... Rafael was happy like some kid in the kiss-and-cry. Smile
I'll definitely miss that man.

Yep! He definitely helped Mao a lot to develop as a skater - both in technical and mental/emotional sense.

Great job, Rafael! Thumbs up!
