Orser denies he'll coach Mao Asada

- Source, JoonAng Daily


Brian Orser, the coach of Olympic figure skating gold medalist Kim Yu-na, yesterday denied rumors that he is considering coaching Olympic runner-up Mao Asada of Japan.

In a telephone interview with Yonhap, the Canadian admitted that Asada’s agent had offered him the job at the World Championships last month, when the Japanese figure skater reclaimed her world title from Kim, the 2009 champion.

But Orser, who has coached Kim since 2006, said that he is not considering coaching Asada and that he is devoted to Kim.

Asada has been reportedly grown frustrated with her coach, Tatiana Tarasova of Russia, and is seeking a new trainer for the next Olympic Games in 2014.

The 2008 and 2010 world champion has worked with Tarasova since 2008.

The rumor about Orser has spread widely, as Kim has reportedly been considering whether to retire and go professional before the 2014 Olympics.

Orser said that he has to help Kim make that decision first, and will coach her if she wants to continue her career.

With Orser, Kim has won a bevy of titles including the Olympic gold medal, a world championship, and three Grand Prix Final trophies, as well as a world-record score of 228.56.

I knew it vv
first of all, now with this rivality is like two of the most famous soccer teams in the world: Barcelona FC and Real Madrid FC from Spain ;D
it would be a really nice example xD
I mean vv something that coaches from this teams won't do in their lives is: to train the other team! that's for sure :/
the same thing happen here... but I'm worried :/
I'm just excited but at the same time worried about this topic of Mao' new coach! D:

According to this new article http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/sp20100428f1.html

Quote :
The Canadian said in the story that he was approached by Mao's agent following the world championships in Turin, Italy, last month and offered the chance to coach Mao. He went on to say that he is devoted to coaching Yu Na and is not entertaining the prospect of working with Mao.

This is where the plot began to thicken.

The Japan Times contacted Mao's agent, Mariko Wada of IMG, on Sunday and asked her to provide some clarity on the issue.

"Very surprising," she wrote in an e-mail of the initial reports. "We never contacted him and never thought about it."

Orser did not respond to an e-mail requesting further elaboration.

Hmm...Is Orser lies about this? I'm getting confuse now.
