“The coach Zachary has tremendous energy. Just by observing, I can feel the power, strength, and passion that I lack.” Mai Mihara about training camp with Zachary Donohue
Mai Mihara about the free program for 2023/24 season and working with David Wilson and Zachary Donohue.
Mai Mihara (23), the reigning champion of last season’s Grand Prix (GP) Final, unveiled her new free program “Jupiter” for this season. The choreography was done by David Wilson. “From the arrangement of the music to various instructions like ‘add this sound here,’ we had direct conversations, and it became an arrangement with a specific theme. I hope to keep polishing it and create more highlight moments in the future,” she said.
Having created many impressive pieces together in the past, Mihara expressed her determination to utilize what she has absorbed from various sources. “I want to make the most of what I have learned and give my best,” she vowed.
During the training camp, there were scenes of passionate guidance with gestures and actions from instructor Zachary Donohue. “The coach Zachary has tremendous energy. Just by observing, I can feel the power, strength, and passion that I lack. I want to make the most of what I have learned,” she expressed her aspiration.
Kazuki Tomono: “I wanted a program that isn’t instantly praised from the start but one that I can finish and in the end grow as a skater through this program.”
