    I really hope the coaching change works out for her! She's one of my favorites! Love her speed and basic skating ability! Hopefully, she can learn the 3Lutz and add it to her jump arsenal. Удачи, Ксения! :cheer2:

    Why isn't this as big a issue as Artur Jr changing coaches? I thought it was said that Russian skaters don't coach-hop.

    Wasn't Artur Jr's coaching change only news because of his father?

    Hopefully they will add some more choreography and transitions into her program. Her jumps are great but her programs are otherwise pretty empty. I guess we won't see too much change at Euros but maybe by Worlds?

    Ditto. Probably not a lot of people would even care if it wasn't for his father.

    Mishin (apple) vs Galina/Victor/JWe (oranges). And a bag of shriveled, dried up, been sitting on the shelf too long bag of oranges ;)

    Are you saying Ksenia is a dried up bag of oranges?

    I guess marbri tried to say that you can't compare the likes of Galina and Viktor who since Viktor's own days of skating (and Oksana's) hadn't had a whole lot of success coaching-wise to a coach like Mishin who (even if you don't like the way his skaters skate) had a lot of success and being known for giving his skaters a close-to-perfect or even perfect technique.

    So i guess this means no more tweets from Johnny rooting her on? Sad, with Worlds coming up too...:(

    At this point I don't know why anyone would stay with Galina/Victor. They don't seem to understand the basics of COP.

    They're still good friends. I'm sure he will still root her on!

    she's still Russian

    anyway, I don't think that Johnny is spending any more time with Team Petrenko than she is
