Posted on June 6, 2014... Michal Brezina is changing coaches back to Karel Fajfr in Oberstdorf, Germany: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.p...d=278550292537
"Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden
That is a very good idea, I hope he now loses this terrible quad technique where he hunches down before the actual jumping which Petrenko taught him.
Well, apparently it wasn't working out significantly well with Petrenko overall in any case. Might returning to his former coach help Michal re-tool his poor jump technique? Practicing figures is always a good idea too to improve edge technique on take-offs. Good luck to Michal this coming season.
If funding is an issue for him it might have been too expensive for him to remain in the U.S.
"I miss footwork that has any kind of a discernible pattern. The goal of a step sequence should not be for a skater to show the same ice coverage as a Zamboni and take about as much time as an ice resurface. " ~ Zemgirl, reflecting on a pre-IJS straight line sequence
That was long overdue. He seems to have a lot of potential but he hasn't been consistent recently and I thought he was lacking direction with his programs being very subpar.
