    What do people mean about Stanislav not being a trained coach? I know a lot of the Russian skaters go to sports school to get some kind of certificate... not sure if there were such schools in Ukraine where V&M trained. But my understanding was that Stas has a lot of coaching experience. He retired after 2002 and I think he was coaching in Galina Kukar's group but came out of retirement to skate with Tatiana. She has also referred to him being her partner/coach/lover even while they were skating together, and I'm sure he also helped out with some of the younger pairs.

    Yes, at least what Alban Préaubert (new commentator for Eurosport France) said during Verner's performence last week, and the other commentator - Philippe Pélissier who was as usual tough with Verner' skating, suddenly become nicer to Verner after that announcement.

    Another international couple - Lu Chen and Denis Petrov (from Beshke/Petrov) - married now (btw Beshke-Petrov married and later divorced)

    off topic, but I was so thrilled to see Alban in Nice as a Eurosport commentator! Good for him!

    re: Tomas and Nathalie - his facebook is rather clear about them still being together ;) she's definitely one lucky girl, Tomas is such a great guy. Also she gets to skate with Fabian, so she's double lucky. No fair! :p

    My cousin (A skating fan for five years) can't tell Anna Cappellini & Nathalie Pechalat apart.
    But he fancies them both :lol:

    Erm, they don't even look that much alike. Anna is taller and curvier and has darker hair and lighter skin than Nathalie. But, they are both very pretty :).

    Poor Nathalie, she must get a heart attack every time Tomas skates, one never knows what to expect with him...

    Have you seen the tweets and pictures that Maxim and Tatiana are sending from their holiday cottage? They get me suspicious, especially the one where Tatiana is sitting half naked in front of the fire place. I bet Maxim took that picture. Are they together there or is Stanislav with them??

    Apperently Maxim and Tatiana have been dating for a while. She is no longer together with Stanislav.

    Hopefully they will also stay together so that it doesn't affect their skating since they have this amazing charisma both on and off the ice :)

    I feel bad for Stanislav, too! I don't understand how he is able to coach them anymore? Imagine, everyday going to the rink and staring at your ex-girlfriend and her new lover. It is beyond depressing, no wonder he looked so sad at the Kiss&Cry during the Worlds. :(

    Stanislav should ask Maria Mukhortova on a date. :EVILLE: And bring her to the rink every day.

    So Maksim dumped his gf for 11+ years, Tatiana dumper her bf for many years and also who sacrificed so much for her.. I know it's their right and freedom to do whatever they want, but I just can't understand why some people are actually HOPING that they'd become together off ice.. JMO

    If Maxim has dumped his long-term gf for Tatiana then he ain't that much better than Maria. Who people have trashed for her relationship.
    This is turning into a soap opera :watch:

    Mukhortova had a relationship their coach, and that, according to Trankov, directly impacted their training and programs.

    Who gets trashed here tends to be related to popularity. Tomas Verner had a long-term relationship that he ended, and I don't remember anyone trashing him for starting a new one with Natalie Pechalat.

    Relationships do end. Most of the skaters are still very young, and if you have started a relationship whe you are still in your teens, things might get different when you grow up. Your wiew of life and values do change.

    Still, I feel for Stanislav Morozov. But we don´t know the details, so we can only speculate (which I love to do...).

    They didn't get along long before Oleg was in the picture, unless she was sleeping with Moskvina too. :yikes:

    Truer words have never been spoken.

    From all reports, that is true, but they wouldn't be the first personally dysfunctional team. I think that Trankov would have had a problem with Vasiliev's coaching no matter what, because Vasiliev spoke about being the end of the line of "manufactured" Soviet teams, and that seems to have been his approach with Totmianina/Marinin as well (along with the relationship with the woman on the team), and that doesn't sit well with creative types. Marinin's artistic potential were fulfilled in the "Bolero" series.

    It gets complicated when the coach is in a relationship with one of the team members. That's especially true when the third party feels like there's a conflict of interest and he or she is second banana. Zhulin said that he tried so hard to be fair that Navka felt he he was siding with Kostomarov. It's an interesting balance.

    While it's still a complicated workplace situation, Morosov can detach if he needs to. He's not one of the skaters, who has to leave and break up the partnership. The big contribution he made to Volosozhar/Trankov was in forging the team and has born fruit -- translating Trankov's technique to the big pairs elements -- and I suspect he isn't really focused on the artistic side. I can't imagine that he couldn't focus on other teams in Mozer's rink or that another coach would not want to hire him for his or hers.

    I do understand that relationships end, especially those started when young. I just wish Morosov didn't look so sad :(

    Is that why Max decided to take Tatiana for himself once Stanislav became their coach? :p Kidding.

    I feel bad for Stanislav and Max's gf too, but even long-term relationships aren't impervious to all things. It happens. And uh, well, I think V/T look pretty cute together. :shuffle: Can't say I didn't see it coming, and they do seem happy together. I just hope nothing bad happens that would affect their skating partnership.

    I feel bad for Stanislav too. So far, I only read great things about him and I have lots or respect for him. He seems to be dealing with this situation with dignity, too. Hope he has a bright coaching carrier and much happiness in his life :)
