    Is this a new head coach thing or is Tammy Gambill a jump coach? Either way I hope it goes well.

    I thought she had been skating with Tammy for awhile now? I know she spends a large part of the summer in Russia training.

    Katarina left Faye 2 seasons ago after she won the Intermediate National title, I think. She was with Anna last year, and switched again to Tammy this year.

    Head coach thing. Gambill also has a very good reputation for coaching young skaters in jumps.

    Yes, Anna Baram was listed as Kulgeyko's coach at 2010 Nationals.

    Thanks for the heads-up. There was some speculation last year that Caroline's mother would only accept a coach of Chinese descent. It's also interesting that her new coach ( if sources are correct ) is of somewhat lower profile than her old one. That shows that she is willing to do what is necessary to improve.

    Besides, what do Mingzu Li, Frank Carroll, Brian Orser, Tatiana Tarasova, Rafael Arutunian and Nikolai Morozov all have in common? None of them ever coached a World champion...........

    ................ until they coached one.

    Might as well get this out there, because it going to be hitting everyone shortly. Miss Li has accepted a position working with the Chinese Skating Federation. This was announced to her students this week. She will be leaving shortly for long term stays in China, coming back to the US periodically. Her students have been placed with various coaches at East West.

    While there has been lots of tears over her departure, the students are taking the news with strength and fortitude. Although coach/skater is a business relationship, each of her students have developed a true bond with her as well as great affection. She will be missed.
    Happy Skating!

    Yes, thanks for the information. There was some discussion a few months ago about whether Caroline would skate for the Chinese. I didn't think she would, but I never thought about Ms. Li.
