    Amodio moving to Tom Z.?

    I just read International Figure Skating FB and it said Amodio left Russia and moving to Colo Sp for Tom Z.

    He'll be Tom's new Abbott+Bradley in the pizazz dept. But let's see if he gets to maintain his pizazz or if he'll keep skating to MJ-ish programs

    I will take Morozov over Tom Zzzzzzz... Hopefully this is not an enlightened decision of French Federation.

    I believe he is there just for some summer training.

    Interesting. Is this qualified information from a reliable source?

    This is what's written on the International Figure Skating magazine FB wall post.

    Coaching changes seem to be the name of the game this off-season.

    French star Florent Amodio has left Russia and will make Colorado Springs his new training base. He will train with Tom Zakrajsek.

    America's Ashley Wagner has left Priscilla Hill and is moving to California to train with John Nicks.

    I'm devastated!!!! How could such a musical and original skater do this?

    I hope this isn't true.

    BTW, if this is true (and I hope to God it isn't), will this be the first time Tom Zzzzz is coaching a non American?

    No. One of Tom Z.'s students is Paul Bonifacio Parkinson, a former-Canadian Italian skater.

    Must wish him well and hope that the move is advantageous to him. Tom Z though? Odd choice as his other top skaters have just left him.

    This is one of the more odd skater/coach combos.

    Next thing you know he'll be going to Robin Wagner.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    Each year since I've joined FSU, I've felt like each off-season is even weirder than the last. Even when I don't think it can be possible for it be topped, it happens.

    This one is puzzling as well. Why Tom Z?
