Adrian Schultheiss and Coach Evgeni Lutkov Separate
http://www.flutzingaround.com/2010/11/adrian-schultheiss-and-coach-evgeni.html


Confused about whether his coach was somewhere in the arena or just running late, Adrian made the decision to skate the short program. We later learned that Lutkov had blacked out in his hotel room and was found by security after Schultheiss told competition organizers of his absence directly after he skated.

Interesting acticle. Doesn't sound like it was a good situation for him (or Lutkov for that matter), and that he's better off with a different coach.

Wow. Thanks for the story, that's quite a shady situation, and glad he's found new coaching. Nationals should be quite interesting if all 3 men show up.

Wow... That's a really awful situation. I hope his new coaches work out for him.

So does 'blacked out' mean he has very serious health issues or was he dead drunk?

That's the question that I had in the back of my mind as well.

Health issues. Sorry.

I had no idea that their working relationship had deteriorated to the point where Lutkov treated Schultheiss with so little respect. :angryfire What a way to get a slap in the face.

Health issues or not, there is no excuse for being a @!$&.

I hope he finds a better coach.

Poor Adrian. Hopefully he'll have success with his new coaches.

Do you know what the health issues are (were)?

The news had reported possible cardiac issues, but I don't know if that's actually true, or what the latest news is.

I wouldn't judge the coach too harshly as people who are sick can be a little off emotionally.

He still wore a hospital bracelet in the KnC for the long program didn't he?

IIRC they've clashed before, and it's not all been Lutkov's fault either, but it does sound rather bad that he went off to Finland for skating related work, while he was supposedly on a break from skating. :/ I hope Schultheiss gel with his new coaches.

Lousy timing too, right before Swedish nationals.

I think these two coaches are the most logical change for Adrian. These are the coaches in Göteborgs KK, the club that Adrian represents. Evgeni is a coach in another club.
