I liked reading about Morozov's training methods. We all think of him as a sleaze but he is obviously well-liked and respected by his skaters.

Trankov's and Smirnov's dedication and perseverance are admirable. If I had to starve and sleep in the stands I would just probably say eff skating and go back crying to my mommy!

I also found it interesting to hear about Morozov from a skater's perspective. I understand why so many skaters from different disciplines go to him.

I'm starting to get it too.

It's just too bad he won't outsource the choreo.

Trankov talking about Morozov was interesting - paraphrasing "I didn't think he was anything- he was just famous because of Yagudin!" Then he thought he really was good and improved his skating. The interview has lots of good stuff.

5 years on the way to each other (http://winter.sport-express.ru/figureskating/reviews/13601/)

translation to come (in a couple of hours)

It would be great if you could also translate this Miki Ando interview for FSUers.

It is unusually candid and can shed some light on many rumors going on right now.

Thanks so much for the translation. It's a great interview, lots of interesting tidbits.

I'm always amused by the difference in the style of questions asked between America and Russia. Can you imagine an American figure skater being asked "Is your father strict" and the skater replying "Yes he is, it annoys me" :rofl:

It's not so much Russia, I think, but more Maxim himself. He is very candid in his interviews, not sugarcoating anything.
(though Zhulin, Dmitriev and Vasiliev have been quite frank, as well. hm... maybe part of it is being Russian)

...I liked reading about Morozov's training methods. We all think of him as a sleaze but he is obviously well-liked and respected by his skaters. ...!

ITA. I remember both Dai and Adam Rippon spoke about him with respect and affection even after they left his team. And both splits weren't easy, as far as I remember...
