    Scroll down to the end to read that Ando has split with Morozov.

    Thank you, but I don't think that this is news for most people here - at least those who are interested in Ando or ladie's skating as a whole.

    but i do really wonder why miki suddenly decided to drop morozov. looking only one season back it seemed like morozov didn't want to make any kind of compromise with the russian federation when they wanted him to coach only russian upcomers, and miki didn't seem to have any problems before their split!
    it really came out of nowhere!

    as morozov mentioned in an interview longer ago, there were problems with mikis mother, who was against their 'off-the-ice' relationship.

    whatever the problem was, morozov mentioned, he would have loved to marry miki (we know this no hard step for morozv :D) but however their relationship ended.

    miki never seemed to be such a strong mental skater, that she could have separated private issues of skating issues. so the only logical step after their relation split was to split as coach-pupil.

    lol your right it really wouldn't be a hard step for him, but in the end I think it's all remain talk from his side, cause if he really loved miki he wouldn't have let her go without putting a fight to prove that he was sincere!
    and miki's recent twitter really do indicate that she isn't mentally strong! I hope she somehow will overcome it and find a good coach to support her.

    Just thinking selfishly as a skating fan, I am looking forward to seeing miki without morozov as the coach. I used to like mikis skating a lot bet 2004 and 2006. Then she went off and won two world titles, but the programs most of them anyway left me a little cold. Anyway, all best wishes to her.

    puh, i as a miki fan, wouldn´t agree to that, there she was really athletic, but lacks of other skating qualities....

    but to be honest, of that time, will be my all time favourite program of her.
    i really adore her olympcis sp (without the mistakes), but that program was really grgeous!!!

    Gosh, Miki's latest tweets really do not bode well. She sounds so down on herself and on life. I can't imagine a skater could train/compete well when she is as unhappy as Miki seems to be.

    Damn, I love Ando's skating and reading her Twitter account is just down right depressing. Is she really this suicidal?

    Guys, Miki lived and skated BEFORE Morozov and, possibly, their split will affect her mentally, but it is unlikely to lead to loss of skill, and if she had enough strength, she will cope well with the performance elements of the competition. I also like her Olympic program in 2006, but when aired, Anton's comments have greater value for me.

    I wonder more about Morozov and Elena Ilinykh. Elena has not been in any of the photos Nikita has posted on the Internet (there are so many), and there seems to be hard feelings between the two based on some of Elena's emo tweets a few months back.

    Miki has seemed heartbroken for over a year. Japanese girls can get very melodramatic about love affairs (we all know Morozov is the opposite) and Miki definitely doesn't seem like she can handle breakups well...

    Ilinykh has been with Morozov for approximately a year now. That's hardly news.

    Yes, I am still :wall: and :duh: x Infinity

    Is that her real Twitter account? Someone who knows her -- the Japanese Federation, her parents, her agent, anybody -- should intervene, and fast.

    Can someone please post the link to that twitter account? Can we really be assured it's not a fake account?
    If it's true, then I'm feeling really sorry for her. Such a fine young lady should be happy!

    That twitter # has to be fake or maybe hacked, right? :slinkaway I really hope so.



    Ilinykh and Morozov deserve each other :blah:

    I think it must be her real twitter account, because Adam Rippon (and his mother) are following.

    So the girl Morozov was screwing was just 17 last year?? Doesn't Miki realize she hasn't lost ANYTHING? And, no, Ilinykh does NOT deserve Morozov. She is a naive 18-year old who is going to get her heart stomped on.

    where did you get that from?

    It's most likely not true as I have it from a reliable source that Elena has been with Morozov for a year now.

    Do you think Morozov's sleaziness will ever affect the judges? Now the judges are giving rep points for his students but do you think it could start to affect negatively, too. Because his behavior doesn't do any favors for the sport, it is creepy that he dates most of his students. :shuffle:

    Thank you for the link. The account seems real. Adam Rippon and Daisuke Murakami are there.
    All I can say it that I wish her well.

    I think it would be unfair to judge a skater's program based on the off-ice activities of their coach.

    Especially when one of those students is underage. A 36 year old man should not be dating a 17 year old and i don't care if Russia is different then here in the US when it comes to age.

    I doubt Miki would be sharing such private thoughts on a public forum like Twitter.

    Wow. I always thought this was just stupid gossipy crap. He really was with Miki? And he really now is with 17 year old ice dancer?

    I thought she said so in an interview, but my understanding of Russian is not very strong so I could be mistaken. Anyways, Elena is at least 18 now, her birthday was in April...

    Is it the legality of the involvement you're questioning? Age of consent is 16 in Russia, anyway. No issues with the ick and eww factor of a 36-year old known womanizer dating a student half his age?

    the problem is not only the huge age gab there is between them i mean he could literally be her(elena) father, it's also the fact that he has an affair with so many of his (underage) students. I sometimes really wonder if takes his job seriously and if he is doing this to on purpose to be able to take advantage of his students, he really is creepy and has no morals at all:rolleyes:.

    I really hope that he doesn't get more underage age girls to coach, they really are not save with him!:yikes:

    The Ilinykh/Morozov thing literally breaks my heart. I know it's not my business, and it's her life, but it makes me so sad, especially since people started predicting it literally the moment Elena and Nikita switched to being coached by him.

    Same here. In addition to that, she dumped Nikita for Whorozov. What has she been smoking, for God's sake?!
