I thought Igor choreographed C/B's FD last year, it looks like his style. Does it say otherwise in an article somewhere?
press conference at Finlandia Trophy, Marina initially thought of the music, but based (it seems, though I must be misunderstanding that part) on an earlier program of Igor's, and from there he seems to have a little more focus in the story than Marina though the main choreographer is never ID'ed.
Beverley Smith's Globe and Mail article today includes quotes from Scott Moir: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/sport...rticle4255940/
"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
Seriously!? You would think journalists covering high profile athletes would at least not mess something like that up!
This, and Jacqui White's post have made me suspicious of the official line in all of this but no one is disputing the outcome, including Igor. Igor seems to have accepted the situation with grace and class. Everyone is saying nice things about one another. We are never going to know any more than, it's over.
I'm waiting for the Russian Federation to send I&K to Igor and I'm willing to bet real money it will happen.
Interesting that V/M were in touch with Marina but not with Igor, while they were away.
I suspect Zoueva kept in touch with them, eliminating the need for them to talk to Shpilband at all.

"Igor, don't worry about keeping in touch with the kids while they're away. I'll do that. Oh, and Craig O'Neill sent me a text message asking me about something. I'll drop by the rink and see what he wants."
