” if you don’t have something nice to say, maybe you really should just not say anything at all”, and perhaps Americans should also to be reminded of that when they direct their “not so courtly” comments towards the phenomenal ice skater Adelina Sotnikova. Enough with the arrogant attitude: ” oh god, just let anybody win but Russians”. Both girls Yulya and Adelina are amazing skaters, and Adelina has definitely earned and won that gold. And I was amazed at just how praised were all the skaters, American, Italian, Japanese..etc by the Russian commentators, two of them were Olympic champions themselves, the appreciation, the love, the respect they showed for everyone competing….in fact, Russia doesn’t give American opinion a second thought….nor the rest of the world, and i am being very honest. And this arrogant self-defense, intimidated by Russia, so afraid of losing again attitude that majority of Americans possess, is the reason why America is on the decline. well, perhaps all that (above) hasn’t been so very nice….but it truly has been my pleasure

It is misled by newspapers. He told about team match of figure skating before this remark. He says Team JAPAN has little chance of medals, so JCU think that Mao’s appearance on the stage give them any colours of medal. But it is stress for Mao, may be.If her failure of Team match remind at the short programs, it is cruel to her.

She had a catastrophic short program, but an amazing Free Skate! She was third on the Free Skate for god sakes! I think that she should call a press conference with that beautiful sweet face of hers, she should say… “Hey a**hole, the day you can do a single axel I will take your comments seriously, in the meantime go f#&k yourself, I don’t need your negativity”. Then one of her beautiful smiles and leave.

Yoshihiro may be just expressing his frustration when he said she falls at the most critical times, which could be true.

It’s still not something that he should say aloud. She was representing Japan and he should be grateful for that alone. If she didn’t perform well, who do you think is more heart-broken and disappointed about it; Yoshiro or Mao? I go with the latter. Either support your people all the way or don’t support them at all. If Mao did suffer any psychological “damage” it’s from people like him.

He should hold Japanese politicians accountable for their jobs, before he wants to come down on easy targets like Asada.

Japanese people were exited to see the HISTORICAL performance of her Free Program and said they prefer her smile of joy than an olympic medal.
