    Thanks Sylvia. Interesting to read between the lines.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.

    "Usually her exhibition I make in one or two weeks and her free program I make in two or three days."

    I don't want to try anything new with Miki because there is no point; if she does her jumps, she will win anyway.
    Ugh.

    if miki does her jumps she will win anyway? huh? even if yeonah and mao also land their jumps (with correct edges, no deductions)? *rolls eyes*

    i think miki is capable of more. i'm tempted to say with morozov having this attitude miki will stagnate artistically, but miki's actually still growing in her presentation skills so i really can't fault him too much.

    still, it's perturbing to hear he puts less effort and time into her competitive programs than her exhibitions and what is his grudge with the japanese fed? i know daisuke said very nice things about morozov even though they had parted ways, and oda has a family he wants to be near now, so of course he can't follow morozov to russia...

    I dislike the style of his interviews so much. Seem like nothing offensive, but... After reading I want to forget it.

    Amodio needs to attempt a quad to land a quad. Morozov says he has 4T and 4S so seeing him try to do one of them in a program would be good. He did bring up Brezin falling twice and you need to be able to do all the jumps you plan when you add a quads but still he could try one. Even if it results in falls or pops or problems you are not going to go anywhere with the jump if they are just stored away for the time you really need them.

    I don't know if he was really indicating he would have a better Russian male skater than Gachinski by Sochi. Is that what he was saying? Or was he just saying Gachinski should improve his skating skills and it was just advice or was it a "join me" message!

    I believe he has some juniors, does he have also Bush, or Urmy does?

    He does say the most astonishing things at times.


    But perhaps what sticks out the most is that his "parasitic word" is "really". But maybe that's a logical parasite to have, when people must constantly think you didn't "really" mean to say what you just said....

    I must say that even though Morozov doesn't really put any time into Miki's programs, her short program was pretty artistic (for Miki)
    If he only spends a day on her free, does that mean he spends a couple hours doing her short?

    zhulin did the same thing, jabbed at lang and tchernyshev saying (paraphrasing) they left him and accomplished what? i think many coaches do this--not an admirable practice but it just shows nobody likes to feel like they've been dumped. doesn't prove that the student was in the wrong to leave.

    adam has a good chance to thrive in detroit and have the last laugh.

    To be fair, even if he spent weeks, it would have made NO difference... this is Miki!

    The only [exception] might be the Japanese Federation, but of course if [a Japanese skater] were to ask me, I would think about it. I say this because I've done so well for the Japanese, and they don't even say thank you. If it weren't for me, there would be no Daisuke Takahashi. [Morozov coached the 2010 world champion to the 2007 world silver medal.] Now [world silver medalist Takahiko] Kozuka is skating so well, because Takahashi, he pushed all the Japanese boys to skate to a new level. Miki won two [world] gold medals for Japan. They just don't understand this.
    Yup, that's Morosov talking.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    She may not be your cup of tea, but Miki is a beautiful skater. There's no need to put her down.
