View Full Version : Question regarding Nikolai Morozov

Where is he coaching now? The German Eurosport guy said during the dance event of NHK that "Ilinykh & Katsalapov are coached by Morozov now and because of that spending a lot of time in the US this year". Hasn't Morozov moved to Russia last year? Did I miss something or was the Eurosport guy just talking nonsense?

He often goes to NY during the summer, to work with dance professionals ... But it's Russia the rest of the year.

His training base is Novogorsk (IIRC), which is just outside of Moscow.

But yes, during the off-season he works in New Jersey.

@MarieM and Ziggy:

Thanks both of you, so the Eurosport story makes sense after all. :)

I don't know. Usually, when Russian coaches come in to work at a specific rink, they stay with other Russian coaches from the rink. Morozov knows tons of coaches and skaters in the NJ area. But I have no idea of his particular situation re: a place to stay.

Doesn't his ex-wife and daughter Annabelle still live in Montclair, or did they pull up roots as well?
