Well, that was long coming. Those programs and packaging are not doing her any favors.She needs "star-making" coach. I just did not expect it to be Morozov.
So Voronov, Leonova, V/T. Who is next? Dance team is missing;)

Morozov is only doing V/T's choreography, so Morozov doesn't have a pairs team.. unless I missed something that V/T switched to Morozov as the coach?

Interview with Piseev in Moscow News http://mn.ru/sports/20110502/301583985.html


- Well, if the French champions Nathalie Pechalat - Fabien Bourzat leave Zhulin, who would Ilinykh Katsalapov train with?
- Everything should be done reasonably. You can't rush from one extreme to another. And the question is not whether to expel [them from the group] or not. In each case we must consider the expediency. If our athletes benefit from [training together], then the foreigners should stay and train. If it is contrary to our interests, then something needs to be changed.

I agree that French couple was an example for Ilinykh - Katsalapov, but perhaps now they can be replaced by other athletes, Canadians or Americans, for example. The principle is that our Russian coaches must work with our athletes. Everything else should be subordinated to this work.


I think people are misinterpreting the bolded question. I don't think there's any inference at all of I&K leaving Zhulin. As you can see by Piseev's answer the question referred to the fact that if P&B leave, I&K will have no training partners at a higher level to spur them on.

I also feel certain that there's nothing in this interview that indicates they'd go to Shpilband/Zoueva. Why would they?

The thing that kills me is Piseev saying that if P&B leave, and I&K have no training partners, they could be replaced by Canadian or American skaters :rolleyes:. What Cdn or US skaters would want to train with a coach who has been told that all work with non-Russian teams should be subordinated to their work with the Russian teams :duh:

She needs better choreography than he provides.

Noooooo. Hopefully she keeps her voidy choreographer? I wouldn't mind her dying her hair a shade of Gedevanishvili piss-yellow, though! It could add to the voids... :lol:

Morozov+Perk = consistent, over-used music and front-loading but no more perkiness or choreography

(not that she has good choreography now, but at least she has some choreography)

I'm surprised. Well, good luck to Alena with her new coach!

I don't know how I feel about this; but then I didn't know she and Piatova were having problems from last season, and though things are better now, seems like the Morozov plan has been in place since Bern.

Hopefully she maintains her own style and is still a bit voidy - she says she likes Morozov because his programmes are a bit different and original - I don't know how true that is(!) but at least it seems to be her intention to continue doing her own non-pwetty pwincess thing. TBH, I don't think she was so "perky" this year - her LP is quite dramatic, which I think Morozov has down. Maybe Morozv can give her more difficult programmes in terms of transitions and composition?

Btw, she was competing in Moscow with a burst corn between her toes, and could barely walk off-ice. Ouch!

There is interesting comment of Nikolay Morozov in new article of Vaitsehovskaya
http://www.sport-express.ru/newspaper/2011-05-03/16_1/?view=page
Morozov said that it's possible Miki Ando will no longer represent Japan. On the question "Which country will she represent?" he shrugged "Russia" :eek:
Journalist was really surprised and doesn't know whether it's a joke.

Is it a subtle way of saying that they are getting married? lol Would she get expedited Russian citizenship?

I think Leonova is very open and expressive, so for some music it comes out as perkiness, as it did in the past. In the Witches program- very dramatic- it came out as something quite different. The ability to express can really work for her, as she is no longer 17-18. Her LP really showcased that ability. I hope Morozov can create programs for her that will take full advantage of that.

An excerpt from the same article:


European champions Nathalie Pechalat and Fabien Bourzat were other [besides Bobrova-Soloviev and Ilinykh-Katsalapov] bronze medal contenders, but [to medal] would be harder for them: after it was announced that the championships was postponed until the end of March, Alexander Zhulin gave them a vacation, which apparently did them no good: when they returned to Moscow, they were completely out of shape. In addition, the group began having [interpersonal relationship] troubles. Zhulin knew that right after the end of the season, his athletes were leaving to train with Anjelika Krylova and her husband Pasquale Camerlengo. The coach pretended he didn't know about it, but once you came at the rink it was clear that the French couple was already cut-off slice of bread. Good result in Moscow would be a miracle.
