"In the short program I was so happy the American ladies did well. Mirai Nagasu was in first place after a clean program."

I suppose somebody could take this a couple of different ways.

Well, I think it is nice that she made the acknowledgement but I did not see it as any type of praise. But it was probably hard for her either way.

I've been hearing from various reliable :sekret: that Caroline Zhang is skating primarily in Riverside, California these days. Tammy Gambill coaches there. (Please consider this unofficial hearsay info until it is confirmed publically.)

Isn't that where Amanda Dobbs trains? Maybe she's working with Meno and Sand?

Amanda Dobbs used to train in Riverside, with Tammy Gambill. She trains with Meno and Sand in Aliso Viejo, CA.

Recent FB wall post mentions Caroline is getting (at least) some ice time at Ice Town in Riverside...

Nigel posted this report over at GoldenSkate.

"Zhang used Dickson for choreo in Colorado. Also worked with Kathy Casey on jump technique. "

I'm not sure who Miss Casey is.

Hint: Try Googling her name. ;) (she's not a chef)

OK, so according to :sekret:, apparently it's widely known in the SoCal skating community that Tammy Gambill is coaching Caroline Zhang now. Since I don't know if there will be a press release issued anytime in the near future, we may just have to wait for the Coach's line in Zhang's USFS/IceNetwork bio to be changed when it's updated for the 2010-11 season...

Interesting...thank you for this information! I really hope this works out for her, I've always been a fan. Can anyone kindly remind me of who Ms. Gambill currently coaches? I recall her training Ellie Kawamura, but I do not know of anyone else.

Gambill's current students include Richard Dornbush, Dennis Phan (not sure if he is still competing?), Lindsay Davis, Katarina Kulgeyko (new this season), and Philip Warren (2010 novice pewter medalist).

Is this a new head coach thing or is Tammy Gambill a jump coach? Either way I hope it goes well.

Thanks. I didn't know Katarina left Faye.

I thought she had been skating with Tammy for awhile now? I know she spends a large part of the summer in Russia training.

Katarina left Faye 2 seasons ago after she won the Intermediate National title, I think. She was with Anna last year, and switched again to Tammy this year.

Head coach thing. Gambill also has a very good reputation for coaching young skaters in jumps.

Yes, Anna Baram was listed as Kulgeyko's coach at 2010 Nationals.
