Very nice :) I hope they can do side-by-side triple axels next season. They are a special team. Though I hate her hair.

I will say I imagine Evora & Ladwig placing above Denney & Barrett at the Games was probably a shock to their system. I dont think they imagined that happening.

IIRC, Barrett was dealing with an injury during the Olympics and it wasn't mentioned or used as an excuse at the time.

Hopefully their problems with their current coaching situation can be helped by this coaching change. It does seem surprising because they have done well in a short amount of time (and the season is getting close to starting), but having problems with coaches is normal. Sometimes you work through it, and sometimes you try something different. I doubt they expect a new coach to work miracles and suddenly refine them or anything... I'm sure they have very good reasons for leaving Peterson and their other coaches.

If athletes switched coaches every time they lost to fellow countrymen, there would be an ENDLESS amount of coaching changes. :lol: If you aren't prepared to lose to someone, you probably can't compete. You win some, you lose some.

I believe that's a recent name change -- the Coral Springs rink used to be known as "Incredible Ice." Just checked the rink's website (http://www.saveologyiceplex.com/index.php) and Zimmerman/Fontana aren't listed as figure coaching coaches there (yet).

They should call it PJZR - R is for Rink.

I didn't realize John Z. had moved to Florida. Is that the reason the temperature in Florida has been several degrees hotter than usual :hat1:.

Peterson's statement shows he's a class act.

This one kind of surprises me but I am sure they know what they are doing. They should get good coaching from John and Silvia and perhaps they can learn SBS 3flip or lutzes as Silvia surely knows a thing or two about teaching them even if she was never the most consistent or best jumper herself.

I am surprised also. Why tamper with success? Makes no sense to me but then some things never do!:rolleyes:

IIRC, Denney was doing 3f and 3lz as a single's skater. IDK if she has been training them recently...this is already a strong jumping team though. Their focus needs to be on other things. Sort of the complete opposite of Donlan/Speroff.

Wow((( Unexpected. Just like everybody else, I wonder if having two top US teams in one place was getting too crowded. Jim P. seems sincerely invested in his students, so I hope it is not too much of a blow for him, and his success continues. And, of course, best of luck for D/B!

I didn't expect this news either, I hope the split from their couches was amicable. I like both D/B and E/L, so I wish nothing but the best for both teams.

PJZ coached Stefania Berton & Ondrej Hotarek last season and the team really blew me away!

I'm still sad that D&B left Jim and gang. I hope it wasn't ugly. If Jeremy is still with Amanda, it's going to be so complicated. Although I guess practicing on the same ice every day might have been complicated, too.

I don't think one needs to move 1000 or so miles away to develop "independent living skills", they could just move out of their parents' house. .

According to an article, that was suggested (by Tom Z? not sure) but Jeremy said (or was quoted saying) he didn't want to fall back on old habits (which is easy to do when all your folks live near you.) ;)

I for one moved thousands of miles away from my parents when I was a teenager and can speak to the difference between 100 miles and 1000. :)
