Sorry if this has been posted

I like this bit:

“You have to remember that everything has to come from the athlete,’’ Tanya Lysacek said. “It’s their mission, their goal. I did not want to be a second coach. I was just there to be a great listener and to give them love and support.’’

Perhaps she should call Maman Joubert to give her advice (i.e. liberate your petit garcon if you want him to win la medaille d'or). :EVILLE:

I´m not surprised at all that Lysacek has a wonderful and sensible mother. Thanks so much for the link to this great interview!!!


And, as Tanya Lysacek readily points out, it was Evan’s responsibility to wake up at 4:30 in the morning for a practice.

It was never us waking him up,’’ Tanya Lysacek said.

Thanks for posting this! I thought this was cute:


As for a Mother’s Day gift this year, Tanya Lysacek said, “He doesn’t have to do anything. He’s already covered Christmas, Valentine’s Day, everything as far as I’m concerned.’’
Awwww! :)

Nice article. She seems sweet and supportive and not at all controlling or pushy. Good for Evan for having great family support throughout his career.

What a nice article, she seems like a great lady. She could hold a clinic for a number of parents out there.

Great article!! Seems like a smart lady, fabulous mom. That is why Evan is so grounded.
Hope some of the skating moms of younger up and coming athletes read this articel and take some advice from it.

"I did not want to be a second coach."

I bet there are some coaches out there who would like to have that printed out and handed as a leaflet to a lot of skating parents.

Wow, this interview impressed me. More moms of skaters need to be like her.
