No. It's another guy, a coach, and I believe the father of Gorshkova of G&B.
Another interesting excerpt from Alla's interview
This was said by Alla when asked about PCS components of Joubert & Plushenko, whom she feels are both better than Chan at "performance", which is a PCS component.
Alla's on the Technical committee now, and I wonder whether we will be seeing some changes in the description of the Performance PCS component next season or the year after.AS: As a judge I can't say their components are not high. For instance, what is `performance'? It's the energy the skater projects to the crowd.

I wish there was really sth in the PCS score which would reflect this "leaving the crowd cold" or the opposite, making the crowd go crazy. Of course I wouldn't like it to be a powerful factor, just to matter at least a bit.One can skate beautifully, perform all the jumps and steps, but leave the crowd cold. Everyone likes to see emotions. I reckon if there were two shows with Joubert and Pluschenko vs Chan and someone else the crowd would rather see Pluschenko and Joubert.
Maybe I'm naive but I like to believe skaters still perform for the people.
Just saying, but being self involved is not performing for the crowd. You can be emotionally & intellectually involved in the music without it being evident to anyone but yourself.
And there's what's in the COP, and how the judges actually grade.
Flutzing was verboten from the beginning of COP, but it was a couple years before deductions were taken for it.
For men's, I would not be surprised to see the weighting of the transition mark drop.
For dance, it would be tricky to change anything at this point, except perhaps to tinker with the definition of the performance component. There have been suggestions to remove the dance spin and the twizzles (two elements that D&W and V&M do very well in most cases).
Sorry for offtopic. Can anyone share the link where Daisuke talks about Davis/White?
Daisuke is particularly a fan of Meryl. When interviewed about what sort of girls he likes, he says, "Meryl Davis"
While the definitions may not change, the weights of the 5 components might change.
That would be the easiest thing to sell, I think.
I don't speak Japanese, and I think Daisuke said more than the translator translated into English. Can anyone who speaks Japanese give a more exact translation of what he said?
