Or is he deliberately sabotaging B/S???
First, he changed both their programs 2 weeks before their first GP. He scrapped their SD entirely - I still dont know why. I saw it on YouTube. I didnt think it was great, but it did look different from a lot of them and I think it would have stood out if he had kept it. Then he changed the music for the FD, while trying to keep the choreography intact. If this isnt idiocy, I dont know what is. The skaters they were competing against had 2-3 months to prepare their programs. His team had 2 weeks.
Then, when the FD is finally starting to come together for them - he pulls them out of Euros [mistake], totally scraps the program [I think an even bigger mistake], and decides to go back to last year's FD [the biggest mistake of all]. Ice dancers can't re-use old programs like singles can. Every team who's tried it in the past has been dinged by the judges. And Zhulin well knows this
What on earth is he trying to do to them? If I were M/K I'd be very afraid.
