    I speak for myself, not other Chan fans. I don't have any strategy whatsoever. I only respond back to your ridiculous remarks, baseless accusations and assumptions. Besides, this thread is about Chan/Coach split. Yet you always take any opportunity to bash Chan whenever you can.

    Yep, I'll say it again, "over-scored and over-hyped."
    You can say it until eternity and still proves nothing but just your silliness.

So beautiful and graceful, so natural. No idea how her technik rated and I'm sure many can give more detailed analysis, but from a pure enjoyment perspective, I'd count her among the very best, IMO.
    I'm also a fan of Angela and ITA with your description of her skating. Her layback is exquisite, and imo, the best in the business. But what I loved most about her skating was her ability to make the choreography meaningful. Every gesture had purpose, and she really took the time to breathe through the movement, if that makes sense. I was lucky enough to see her live once, and I had goosebumps watching her.

    The Tak program I saw, he was not clean. So I don't know which one you saw. Also, figure skating is not counting number of mistakes. EVERYTHING is taking into account. Tak watered down his program, Chan did not.
    Being behind the music certainly was the only mistake this day!
    I used that as an example. I have watched his post performance interviews, he'd say it if something wasn't right about his skate.

    I start thinking that Patrick will be the next Michelle Kwan – great skater, but you better don’t read threads with fanatic fans that don’t allow for the slightest critics nor can they even stand nice words devoted to other skaters.
    There's a difference between making criticism and making things up.

    Yes, Chan is dating with Kathy Johnson's daughter.

    And She is a student at Parsons in NY.

    I heard she would make costume for Chan.

    I guess the costume (a EX choreographed by Jeff)was made by her.

    Maybe if Miyahara has a Canadian twin who won't grow anymore...

    Ice dance however would be more suitable. He and Maia Shibutani look lovely together https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

    However, Gracie Gold is just going to win all the medals in Sochi anyways, cloning herself in male form when necessary to win the pairs and dance titles.

    I thought Chan was dating an Olympic Skier?

    This is what makes me sad - already a generation of skating fans who don't know her.

    On a happier note, and continuing thread drift , according to Wiki Angela and Ivan are expecting their first child next month! He was always one of my favourite skaters to watch too, so nice to see them happy.

    He used to date an Olympic speed skater from Calgary. Anastasia something.

    Interesting that he's dating his coach's daughter. Assume the coaching relationship will go downhill when the dating one does.

    I'm sad that she never quite got the recognition she deserved as a skater; yet delighted at this news.
    Much happiness to them.

    If anyone could explain how Kathy Johnson has the coaching credentials required by Skate Canada to get international accreditation to be by the boards I would appreciate it.

    I think Tess Johnson has already graduated from Parsons, and I don't think the Ex costume is designed by Tess? Looks like a mix-match from Patrick's former wardrobe. Also, I am quite sure Tu Ly is still Patrick's official costume designer.

    I wonder about that as well. I don't see how she could possibly be a level 3 coach. Are the requirements in the US different? Maybe she is qualified be US standards so is okay for internationals?
    A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed - it's an important distinction. - Rick Mercer

    requirements are different in US. if she is member of PSA she can take on-line tests to fulfill education requirement. Some parents are starting to do it over here so they can put their own kids on.

    Thanks for the info, idee123. I was curious, so I googled her. This could be her:
