Yagudin doesn't watch figure skating competitions very often. I suspect that when you've been skating since the age of four, figure skating can get you bored sometimes and you want to do something else than watching skaters. I had to laugh when I read somewhere that David Wilson had never seen Hanyu skate until he was asked to choreograph for him although David is actively involved in competitive skating as a fs choreographer.
I have to say Chan should probably take notice of this and watch his back next season,
It was arguably enough for the right piece of bad press at the right time to create enough of an issue with Plushenko's skating,
Chan would'nt want that kind of bad press, It's olympics and the world is watching ...
I read your posts and come to the conclusion that you write, you invoke the programs that you do not remember ...
I'm not saying that everyone does it. And that is my impression.
Please watch the program before you write ... This is actually very important and influences opinion. Seriously ..
You can't remember the details of each skater in 2003 ..
Again, I challenge lala (or anyone) to produce the original piece of what Yagudin said. VarBar, I believe your version more.

Considering the level of the men's event at Vancouver, I'd be fine if they just gave Yuna an OGM as best singles skater.
Does that cover it?

What feelings do you see the world championships?
Alex: "I do not watch them. Everyone is so surprised ... To be honest, I'm not interested. I've done everything in the sport that I could. It is clear that time is and will be the new champions, victory and tragedy. Why are not interested - no bright individuals. If you take the masters of the old school: Lyudmila Belousova and Oleg Protopopov, Tatiana Tarasova, Tamara Moskvina - it's really the person, people with substantial internal energy. In February, the European Championship was figure skating, which coincided with the filming of "Ice Age." And since I was a host of the show and did not ride up to three or four in the morning, like everyone else, I had the opportunity to see it. I did not feel any particular emotion. If you take the men's figure skating, it's probably only one skater, Canadian Patrick Chan, came to the fact that at one time made our top five at the Olympics - two quads. For ten years - no development. Of course, the first few years after the end of my career I was bored and wanted to get back into the sport. Just as dramatically suddenly snapped ... I think that will help knee surgery, but it did not.
You have lived long enough in America, then returned. Do not like it?
Alex: "I actually spent in America for seven years. Four years of riding there under the direction of Tatiana Tarasova, were later tour. And after that, I went for two weeks to rest, Peter, and her mother said, "You're a long time? When going back? "And I realized that I return to America I did not want to. Everything is artificial, ranging from food and finishing with emotion. People like robots. In Russia, people are still more sincere, open to communication. Plus, here is my mentality, culture, humor. I remember when after America first time I went for a walk along the Nevsky Prospekt, was blown away: what are our girls are beautiful! Trying to look good, dress poeffektnee, albeit at a low price. But in America, people to go out, just pulled on shorts and flip-flops. Although the opportunities they often earn much more and they are good. Did I mention that my wife and I recently vacationed in Hong Kong. This city I also confess, surprised. There is also a girl for a very particular - are on the streets are beautiful thin, dark-haired. Feast for the eyes. But then we arrived in Moscow, Tatiana and I realized we did better! This is home.
