I can't read Japanese, but the poster,urara, left this post and cited this article concerning Mao's illness: http://sportiva.shueisha.co.jp/clm/o...k_3/index3.php (in Japanese)

The writer of this article also noticed that Mao was not fine and looked tired on both days.
And, yes, Coach Sato replied Mao was not feeling well.

Mao will never make excuses about it, though.

Congratulations, Mao!
Have a good rest and get well soon!

you are so ...

You are so beautiful
Once
My father said to me
While I was watching a tennis match
“Strong players are beautiful”

Even though the time when you fall or pop on the ice
We could see beautiful motions from you
The ice you touched looked completely different

No one is perfect
We are created so
It is not her to try to be perfect
Just for something

Pretending to be perfect
Is easy
And it’s obvious
At the bottom of our hearts
We know about it

But
Seeking your own perfection with your gentle way
There is a long and freezing ice to go

We could see it through your countless efforts
That’s why I want to cry and compose my poem
About you

Look at you
No one is like you

You are the one
The time will come when people will realize

I didn't intend to begin this journey.
Japan had always been half a world away
till one day I saw tears flood my television.
A beautiful ballerina battling back with triple axels.
An angel's wings descended from the heavens
at Worlds 2007. Was it joy or heartache,
or a bittersweet mix of the rich tapestry in between?
Radiating symmetry and expression in each motion.
A brilliant vision of perfection I had never imagined.
A genuine spring of emotion flowing from a soulful source.
Men with microscopes squinted to see a touch on the ice
invisible to me in real time and subtracted a point from paradise.
The value of her axel took a big hit in the new system.
Her expectations deflated backstage her tears began again.
So the tide of Mao's world on ice turned in an epic ebb and flow.

I didn't intend to go on this journey
私はこの旅を続けようとは思っていなかった
Japan has always been half a world away
日本は世界の半分くらい離れた場所にあり
Till one day I saw tears flood my television
ある日私がテレビであふれ出る涙を見るまで
A beautiful ballerina battling back with triple axels
トリプルアクセルで戦っている美しいバレリーナ
An angels wings descended from the heavens
天国から降ろされた天使の羽
at Worlds 2007. Was it joy or heartache,
2007年世界選手権で。 それは喜び、痛み、
Or a bittersweet mix of the beauty in between?
それとも間にあるその美のほろ苦い混ざり合い。
Radiating symmetry and expression in each motion.
それぞれの動きの中に調和と表現が分かれ出る。
A moving vision of perfection I had never imagined:
いまだかつて想像することのできなかった完成への躍動するヴィジョン。
A genuine spring of emotion flowing from a noble soul
それは高貴な魂からあふれ出てくる感情の純粋な泉
Men with microscopes squinted to see a touch on the ice
氷へのひと触れを見るために細部にわたる顕微鏡で
invisible in real time and subtracted a point from paradise.
リアルタイムでは目には見えず、パラダイスから点を減点された
The value of her axel took a big hit in the new system
彼女のアクセルの価値は新しいシステムの中で大きな一撃(成功)となった
Her expectations deflated backstage tears flowed again.
ふたたび舞台裏で流される涙で小さくなった彼女の想い。
So the tide of her career began its precious ebb and flow.
そこで彼女の経歴の大きな波はその尊い引き潮と満ち潮を動かし始めた

WowMao, I translated your poem. Some parts are hard to translate... there might be some mistakes I made. But I couldn't stop writing your poem in Japanese. Thank you very much.

Your welcome, whiteboots. Thanks for the translation and for being an inspiration along with Mao. Though I can't understand, it is an honor that you took the time to do it and it is beautiful to see. I have changed a couple of lines slightly to make it flow better and to bring out more imagery with water and light. I really am concerned for Mao. I hope she is getting better. I wish she would rest, get well and not face another competition now. But just as I am a worrier, I know she is a noble warrior, so my guess is she will go through with it. Get well soon. Mao, save up strength, and if it is your choice, come back strong at Nationals.

One Mao Time Love Hearts

The season when you perform is coming in a few months
Thinking about it, I am happy
Your performances on the ice
With the same piece
In different version
One by piano
The other by orchestra

I am so happy to share your new SP and LP with other people
You have the power of uniting them
You have the power of creating your own dance

Spontaneously
Naturally
Beautifully

Your movement is so graceful and also full of passion
With breathtaking technique

Life can…
Be more beautiful
Encore

With your skating

Black and Red


In black
You dip yourself
Like a feather pen

On the ice
With clear lines

Black and white

Your steps
Expressive

Your arms
Black swan wings
On the lake



In red
You melt everything
With your flame

Inside of you
It had been hidden

But now
It is obvious

We see your endless passion
Your perpetual beauty

Your Silhouette
dedicated Mao Asada

One time
You are moderate like a white swan
Other time
You are enchanting as a black swan

Your feature is turning into different forms
From moment to moment

If you were a flower, you would be a white calla lily
You dye yourself into any colors
Beauty of continuous change
You are dignified, standing straight in the green
Like a warrior

On ice
Your tracks follow you gently,
Drawing various lines
As your wings spread widely
Lights of your rainbow fly high

America, France, and Finland
I will not be able to go
However, I am going to gaze you from the nearest place

May be able to have a performance with joy
This is the only thing that I really pray for

After the performance
The moment before your enter behind the curtains from the rink
Leaving your stunning silhouette on ice
Sorrow exists there grasps my heart

Your Silhouette is such a beautiful poem, whiteboots. I am really impressed!  I almost went to Trophy of France but I had said that I was going to go somewhere else so I decided not to go at the last minute and regret it a lot now, but I was so lucky to see Mao in Finland. I hope you get to see her skate live sometime.
