    Not quite right.
    He demands serious commitment from his pupils, while some consider their skating as something you are doing for fun. Different people have different way to work and achieve good results. That's all.
    I hope I get it right because I am not a native English speaker.

    That's why I said I paraphrased. I assume Schultheiss isn't skating just for fun. Jag är svensk, men en aning lat.

    Didn't Schultheiss train for a little while in the US before SA? Maybe he can find long-term coaching in North America instead of Sweden? He has some rather interesting and original ideas (definitely a rarity nowadays), and I really hope he will garner more attention on the international scene.

    As a lifelong skater I've found that coach/skater relationships run very hot and cold. On the one hand you are paying the coach to be an objective professional. Yet you work one-on-one with the coach towards a common goal, which is a very intense experience. However, once that goal is a achieved (or one or both parties feels it is hopelss) there is usually nothing left to say.

    Actually his choreographers Tony Hulten and Denny Hulten work in USA.

    Very interesting info. I enjoyed reading the story behind his programs, especially the short. It does help the choreography make some sense.
    I hope he does well at Europeans.

    I love Adrian's SP this season, but I didn't really know the story behind it (even though I did catch his serpent-like movements).

    Maybe after reading this article some of his fans will send out their applications to be his personal chef.

    Well I for one give a big thumbs up to the rockin longer hair. In a few short months his look has gone from 'white supremacist' to 'shaggy ken doll'. Giddy up!
