Ah, btw: Who is Voronov's coach now?
AFAIK he left Morozov's group.
Any recent news of Artur Gachinski? I hope having to train with Plushenko doesn't psyche him out.
Lisa and Arthur is now the south of Italy, in the city of Bari. They are working on physical training.. And 7 jun. 2013, another training camp in Pinzolo.
Who is Lisa? Did you mean Elizaveta Tuktamysheva?

ETA this article with quotes by Tamara Moskvina about Gerboldt/Enbert who are aiming for the Rostelecom Cup TBA: http://fsrussia.ru/news/610_tamara-moskvina-paru-gerboldt--enbert-nachal-trenirovat-oleg-vasilev/

Does this mean Oleg Vasiliev is in the Moskvina camp now?
Yes, sorry..LiZa Tuktamysheva..and I was wrong, from 17 Jun 2013 begins the Mishin Summer Camp in Pinzolo https://www.facebook.com/MishinSummerCamps?hc_location=stream
Yes, he is. Tamara Moskvina also told me that she passed Gerboldt/Enbert on to him. So the coaching change reported earlier took place, but apparently the team did not leave Moskvina but was handed over to Vasiliev to give him a Russian pair to work with now in St. Petersburg. He is still coaching the Italians Della Monica/Guarise and single skater Ivan Bariev, who wants to represent Italy from now on, also said that he is planning to train under Vasiliev.
Thanks Eislauffan for the translation. However, that is the most boring interview by a russia FSer that I have ever read.
So Bariev also left camp Morozov? Interesting...
Thankyou Eislauffan.Nothing that we wouldn't predict ourselves though
Yes, Ilia is very conservative in his assessment.
As for Ivan Bariev, yes, he announced a while ago that he left Nikolai Morozov. http://www.ivanbariev.com/Englisch/pages/news.html
So who actually stayed with Morozov?
I/K, Amodio, Leonova, Takahashi...anybody else?
Pushkash/Guerreiro spend their summer in Detroit with Anjelika Krylova and Pasquale Camerlengo. But I don't know if they'll stay there permanently (it is certainly possible).
I can only see I/K leave Morozov if Elena breaks up with him.
Really Takahashi ,is not with Morozov,he uses his services sometimes,
Based on a polital promise of a gold Medal
Some pics from Moscow and St. Petersburg on our homepage:
great pictures! thank you!
There were rumors that I/K wanted to leave Morozov after this season, but RFSF didn't give them permission, so they stuck with him for another year
They want to protect their number ones b/s!
I doubt it. They don't care where the medals come from, as long as there is a medal. As soon as B/S don't deliver, they will be replaced as number one.
They wanted to, and the fed wouldn't allow it? That's insane. If that's true, that's so frustrating.
russian fed ordered no coaching change during pre- and olympic season. i think for their favourites they surely make expectations (kovtun, bazarova/larionov) but people like p/g just have to work as ordered.
i'm not their biggest fan, but it's the old story, sad that ice dancers like them will not be seen at any championships
I don't believe it. There was something here about needing to ask for permission from Russian Federation when changing coaches just before the Olympic season, but considering how many Russian skaters did change their coach (Bazarova-Larionov, Stolbova-Klimov, Gerbold-Enbert, Voronov) I don't believe that I-K asked and were not allowed. I think it is more likely that someone just made it up. For them to change coaches, Elena would have to split up with Morozov, and if they did split up, the atmosphere at the rink would probably not be very nice; I don't think the Federation would want her to work in such environment. The Russian Federation must be aware of the relationship because neither Morozov nor Elena are hiding it.
This new Smirnov reminds me of The Creature of The Rocky Horror Picture Show
These skaters are either have little chances to make an olympic team, leave alone high placement in Sochi, so RFSF doesn't care much about them, or didn't have most well-known and successful coaches like Morozov, so RFSF doesn't care much about their previous coaches. IK are a different case I think
Bazarova-Larionov are very likely going to Sochi, and if Kawaguti-Smirnov skate as bad as they skated throughout the last season, B-L will be number 2 pair, so I think the Federation actually cares about them.
Cherub721 was responding to Autumn_girl's post about Ilinykh/Katsalapov. This time it wasn't about Puskash/Guerreiro.
Of course. But not so much about their previous coach, who is nowhere Morozov's level and had some conflict with her students
Agreed, and B/L had a poor showing at worlds (getting beat by K/S ) with only the GPF as their best performance. Vera needs all the jumping help she can get, if Moser can't help no one can.
They could have Alexei Mishin drill his axel and toe technique into her until she gets it right.
Elizaveta Tuktamysheva has been named one of the Russian "Samsung athlete ambassadors" for Sochi 2014: http://www.insidethegames.biz/olymp...-as-samsung-athlete-ambassador-for-sochi-2014
