When he won JW he Evan Lysacek at that event and each time Lysacek won a medal at a major event, I was thinking about Sasha Shubin and felt sad he couldn’t realize his potential. Even today it’s heartbreaking to think about it. I feel so cause I wanted to see so many more of his performances. Btw if anyone has a link to videos of him at JW of TEB please link – I wanted to link some here, but despite trying hard, I couldn’t find any videos of it in the net.
For those interested in Shubin's career: before he started coaching, he skated in shows (on a cruise and he also participated in Ilia Averbukh’s shows back in 2003 or 2004).
Hope he will become a great coach. I think he might be a good choreographer as well.
