    Default MKM in article - 2018 girls win Gold medal for excuses

    http://www.latimes.com/sports/olympi...222-story.html

    "Nagasu piled up excuses the way Russian gold medalist Alina Zagitova did combination jumps. Nagasu was emotionally drained after winning a bronze medal in the team competition. She traveled four hours last week to attend a lunar new year party. She couldn't take hot showers."

    ".....The once-dominant U.S. team's decline in women's figure skating has become a major talking point at these Games, with explanations varying from the reluctance of Americans to take the kinds of risks rewarded by a new scoring system, to how the absence of a transcendent figure such as Michelle Kwan has affected the sport's popularity.

    "What the skaters said in the post-competition interviews pointed to another problem: the lack of mental and emotional fortitude."

    Thank you for posting this. I read the article yesterday, and came away feeling very disappointed with Mirai. She's a 24 year old woman, but seemed very immature in many of her comments. The article left me feeling even more impressed with how Michelle behaved at the Olympics. She was under much more pressure than Mirai and was only 17 in Nagano yet never once complained, made excuses or put down one of her competitors. Mirai could stand to take a page from Michelle's book.

    Oh, shut up Dylan Hernandez, whoever you are. Why don't you go out there and do something yourself?

    What kind of a troll thread is this, anyway? This has nothing to do with Michelle. Mirai did her best.
