    :eek: I just read International Figure Skating FB and it said Amodio left Russia and moving to Colo Sp for Tom Z. :eek:

    He'll be Tom's new Abbott+Bradley in the pizazz dept. But let's see if he gets to maintain his pizazz or if he'll keep skating to MJ-ish programs

    I will take Morozov over Tom Zzzzzzz... Hopefully this is not an enlightened decision of French Federation.

    I believe he is there just for some summer training.

    Interesting. Is this qualified information from a reliable source?

    This is what's written on the International Figure Skating magazine FB wall post.

    I'm devastated!!!! How could such a musical and original skater do this? :eek: :wall:

    I hope this isn't true.

    BTW, if this is true (and I hope to God it isn't), will this be the first time Tom Zzzzz is coaching a non American?

    Interesting, Amodio goes to Tom Z just when all his other top skaters are leaving him....hmmm

    No. One of Tom Z.'s students is Paul Bonifacio Parkinson, a former-Canadian Italian skater.

    Must wish him well and hope that the move is advantageous to him. Tom Z though? Odd choice as his other top skaters have just left him.

    This is one of the more odd skater/coach combos.

    Each year since I've joined FSU, I've felt like each off-season is even weirder than the last. Even when I don't think it can be possible for it be topped, it happens.

    This one is puzzling as well. Why Tom Z?

    Don't say it!!

    His LP at the worlds and this move Tom Z makes me worry for his general well being.

    Oh good gods, why!? :wall:

    What the hell could TZ possibly offer him? He's not a jump doctor or anything like that and he's crap at packaging students.

    This is possibly the most baffling move of the offseason so far.

    I refuse to believe this until it is confirmed by like 10 sources. What a terrible, terrible idea.

    Tom Zzzzzz... the only person who came away from these past World Championships looking like a more self-absorbed ass than Amodio himself.

    Well, as long as Tom Z doesn't choreograph programs like that travesty of a long program Amodio had this past season. :scream:

    I think Jeffrey Buttle has been working on choreo for some of Tom Z's skaters? Because the possibility of Amodio working with Buttle is kind of intriguing.

    I hope it´s not true and Amodio will start treaining with some other coach.

    Are actually Cappellini and Lanotte still training with Morozov? Or already gone as well?

    They stay, but Morozov isn't the only coach of C/L, AFAIK they spend about 2 weeks a month with him and other 2 weeks in Italy

    He's only there for a month and then he'll spend one month at Courchevel with Annick, then he'll be back to Morozov.
