    There have been many world and euro medals won recently by UK skaters? Huh? Did I blink and miss this?

    Get with the program, already :)

    I read this to mean that he had coached skaters who had competed at a national level in whatever country they represented, not that these 50 skaters were all UK skaters.

    The journalist obviously didn't check his facts.

    Juri Bureiko has coached and consulted many skaters from different countries but I don't remember him working with any European or World medallists.

    Wasn't he working with KVDP at some point?

    Ahhh he was coaching KVDP indeed! So that's one European medallist then. :)

    Gee- here was me thinking that the news that he was three times over the legal driving limit and could have potentially have hurt (or worse) someone with his idiotic notion that he was fit to drive, would have caused a response!
    Instead the inaccuracies of how many medal winners is the only comback! :duh:

    Then why didn't you say that's what you wanted to talk about, instead of just posting the link?

    What is the point of posting something that is totally obvious and that everybody who isn't braindead agrees on?

    Yes, drink-driving is wrong and irresponsible.

    Shame.
    The worst part of it is that we've become used to this kind of message - figure skater drunk behind the wheel. I hope being stopped and fined makes Mr. Bureiko consider his doings more in the future. Living with a life on the conscience is among the most dreadful things that can happen to a person and it happens so quickly.
