Mao Asada is one of my favorite skaters. So, I hoped that she will come back. I think every Mao Asada’s fan and just a person who loves figure skating wanted the same. Because Mao still has a lot to show for the audience regardless possible sport results.
There were a lot of talks about her possible come back to figure skating. There also were a lot of doubts. But Mao Asada announced her program for the upcoming year, so I think we can be sure now that she is actually coming back.
The short program is to Bei Mir Bistu Shein
The free program is to Madame Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini
Both programs were coreographed by Lori Nichol.
While we can only imagine Mao Asada’s new programs the young and promising Japan skater Satoko Miyahara already showed her new free program.
