Zhulin complained about it publically at the time. There was an interview with translations posted here. There was also the Ice Network interview with I&K. This information may be new to you, but anyone who followed the threads around the shift of Worlds to Moscow would have been aware of it.
Exactly, I translated some of them, I know it isn't true.

I don't understand how Barbara F-P is joining Igor S but will not leave Italy. Will she use Skype?

She is going to work with him during the summer, not full time during the whole season.

gee, it's easy to pontificate on "work ethics" while comfortably sitting in a chair !
:rolleyes: You have no idea what our work ethics are.

If you let your cursor dwell over the photo, many of the people are tagged, and there are links to other photos.

And Barbara Fusar-Poli is there!

Imagine what she will do if any of the males drop their partners. Death stare!!!

New article on Igor Shpilband and his new training rink in Novi, Michigan: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20120803&content_id=36052570&vkey=ice_news

Russians Ekaterina Riazanova and Ilia Tkachenko, fifth at the 2012 European Figure Skating Championships, are spending the summer with their coach, Alexei Gorshkov.
...
With a husband (former Olympic short track competitor Diego Cattani) and two children in Milan, Fusar-Poli does not plan a permanent move to Michigan, and she will stay only until mid-August. Shpilband hopes she can return later in the season.

"Everyone is enjoying working with Barbara," Shpilband said. "I was also very lucky Marina Klimova was able to come and help me for a few weeks, and hopefully she will be coming back later this month. She worked with all of our teams, on all kinds of different things. She's such a talented coach."

Gorshkov has been working with all the senior couples on the Yankee Polka.

Thanks for the update! :)

It sounds like Igor Shpilband managed to bounce back really quickly and create an excellent team at Novi. I am betting, he's going to be more successful than Zueva in the long run.


That's in addition to junior couples planning to represent Canada and Poland as well as a South Korean junior couple still in the tryout stage.

Anybody knows which teams are those?


"There was a little problem with [getting] ice in the beginning, because I approached them quite late and some ice was already sold, but now I have it starting at six in the morning [and going] into the afternoon," Shpilband said.

That's not optimal though, isn't it?

Ideally you'd want your skaters to have one session in the morning and another later during the day, right?

The off-ice facilities sound great, though.

I live in the area and actually just went to the Sports Club of Novi (next to the ice rink) yesterday -- it's great. Not to mention Novi itself is a really nice area to live in; there are condos right next to the rink as well.

Ideally you'd want your skaters to have one session in the morning and another later during the day, right?From what I've read, most of the teams in Canton do their skating in the morning. I think I read that D/W skate 2 hours, rest for an hour, then skate another 2 hours, then do off-ice. Maybe there are times the sched needs to shift to accommodate various specialists who come to work with the teams here and there, but I've gotten the impression that the skating is done in a large chunk. From Evan Bates's comments in the article, it sounds like their schedule is what they have been used to.

I feel like Igor has a great team going. I love that there's all this collaboration going on between the coaches and choreographers of the different skaters.
And I LOVE LOVE LOVE that Babs is working on facial expressions with the skaters

I find it interesting that both C/L and R/T chose to train with Igor.
Marina trains the top 3 teams but is she doing choreography for any single/pairs this year?

2 of Shpilband's new Junior teams registered for the 2012 Lake Placid Ice Dance Championships -- Marina Barova (UKR) & Allan Stoll (CAN) competed (http://photography.ice-dance.com/2012-13/12LPIDC/Jr/FDC/12LPIDC-JrFDC-1794-BS-KW.jpg.php) and Yura Min (KOR/USA) & Sam Kaplun (UKR) withdrew.

Is Peter Gerber (POL) pictured here with a new partner?
