    Translation:

    Former European champion Tomas Verner, who ponders whether to move to train overseas, will announce his decision by the end of September.
    "I have yet to weigh all the pros and cons: leave everything as it was, or continue to work like in America. In the first place, I should discuss it with those whom it directly concerns. I will make my decision by the end of September.
    - I've been thinking about whether I can leave home and go over the ocean. Training? I liked it. But I want to find my own effective way", - said Verner in an interview with Sport.cz

    Also, the paragraph that was omitted in the translation of the original source of the article above, which is here:

    "Training there is very different from what I was used to in Europe. [The skaters] train every day, that becomes a routine. I've never had such intense training in the gym, either, - but my body has become stronger, I have better coordination and balance now."

    Isn't it a bit nutty to still have your coaching situation up in the air just before the season will start? I mean, I guess it's better than choosing the wrong coaching situation, but the timing seems odd.

    The picture next to the blog posting is and fits the content.

    So the news about him is that he hasn't decided where he'll train?

    Maybe, maybe not.

    He will announce his decision at the end of September. He is first finishing his bachelor degree. His first competition AFAIK isn't untill the beginning of November anyway.
    here is a translation of the full Czech interview.
    "it doesn't matter if you love what you do, but that you do what you love"
    a quote Tomas Verner () gave me to think about...

    A: It's a little unusual, but according to me it's completely right. I was searching for someone where I wouldn't be lying on a couch to talk about my dreams and childhood.
    I thought this was a funny comment in talking about rejecting traditional sports psychology

    So true. Unfortunately all of Huths students seem to get to a point where they tend to be inconsistant or just stop to progress even though they have the potential to be a lot better.

    true, but what an awesome look at that ring! I must tell you, I've been obsessed with his gloves from both that season and the following one and that ring was such a great detail to the gloves as well. I mean, maybe it's weird but I really think Tomas's gloves are and besides, gloves also give you a better look on the skater's hands, which is always welcome, you can see the movement better

    anyways, I know I'm going off topic here about his training decision, I hope he makes the right one for him, the one that will make him fight for international golds, cause it's a way too huge talent to be wasted like it's been lately... hope the timing of this decision won't affect his skating this season either.

    I just want him to leave Huth. Actually, I want everyone to leave Huth. I don't know what his training methods are, but they don't seem to work well for any of his students.
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    He is always handsome.

    But I agree, fab pictures, especially the flying ones. He probably has the most beautiful flying sitspin among the current ones.

    True. Handsome and talented. That's why he must leave Huth and find the right coach for him as soon as possible. His quad is better than Plushenko's quad and his charisma is contagious, and yet he doesn't really have much to show for it. I hope he has a successful season, I would love to see Tomas and Michal on both the European and World podiums - they are both definitely capable of it.

    I do hope Verner finds a productive coaching situation. A dear friend of mine, who skated international pairs, attended several GPs/Worlds with him. Said he was THE NICEST guy and so talented. Wishing him the best as he makes plans for the upcoming season!!!!

    Go, Tomas!
    I hope you´ll succes well with your new coach and environment.
    (I sometimes think that especially the male figure skaters should not to be too analytic and intellectual. Please show me wrong.)
