I am in the K&C at the 1980 Olympics telling Frank Carroll he will have a male skater from KAZ with a 4T, 3A-3T and a World Silver going into the 2014 Olympics ...
Coulson died at age 80. Not surprising that someone of his generation, born in 1916, might disregard psychology. Patrick should take that advice with an entire container of salt.
[QUOTE=Triple Axel;3876445]Alexei Yagudin and Evgeni Plushenko used to skate multiple quad programs in their sleep..and they LANDED their other jumps, too. And talk about skating skills!! For footwork, Chan had NOTHING on Yagudin (See 2002 Olympic short OR long programs for a clinic on footwork and artistry, as well as jumps!!)Couldn't have said it better myself. Yagudin like you said had great footwork even though in the 6.0 system it didn't mean as much as it does now. Plus he landed most of his jumps and he never won a World Championship skating as sloppy as Chan did.
Just rewatch Yagudin's free skate at the 2000 Worlds where he took the gold medal. He was really lucky to win that one.Plus he landed most of his jumps and he never won a World Championship skating as sloppy as Chan did.
