    Cipres accused of sexual misconduct

    To be fair to Kwan, it was the days before social media and fans mostly kept it to message boards and chat lines. Now with social media fans are attacking skaters and other fans directly on personal or at least personal enough accounts.

    Nobunari Oda: Harassment forced me to quit as Kansai University coach

    Here’s a incomplete list of some known clockwise skaters: http://www242.pair.com/amossman/SKATE/cw.html Note some world/Olympic medalists and champions and their countries. This discussion isn’t complete unless we get some clockwise skaters’ opinions noted on this subject.

    Nobunari Oda: Harassment forced me to quit as Kansai University coach

    And yet kids in other countries can skate clockwise and develop that way there because the adults there who are in charge found ways to make it happen. Many of them grow up to be champions. Again, just because something is difficult doesn’t mean we can develop training methods to maximize their...

    It’s not the criticism I mind, but it was how he used it to deflect.

    Nobunari Oda: Harassment forced me to quit as Kansai University coach

    Well, we already know spinning direction is not just based on handed-ness but often goes side-by-side. I do think coaches And other adults can think of solutions in training to accommodate clockwise spinners like they do in other skating countries, and safety hasn’t been an issue there. I know...

    Nobunari Oda: Harassment forced me to quit as Kansai University coach

    But I don’t accept that it’s a scenario of anyone having to suffer. I think we’re all smart people and can come up with creative solutions that are time efficient and not too costly to the coach/rink/student. Why is it always when accommodation gets brought up, the whole 10/90 thing gets brought...

    Nobunari Oda: Harassment forced me to quit as Kansai University coach

    @TAHbKA, I already explained why I think it’s important in figure skating. I don’t know enough about cello or violin playing to comment but I skimmed a few comments saying both hands are needed to play those instruments so being right-handed or left-handed will give each unique advantages. That...

    Orser explains why Briand coached Hanyu at GP Final in Torino (Hersh article); also a Ghislain Briand article (in French)

    I can’t help but get flashbacks of Orser going to the press regarding Mao’s team allegedly approaching him for coaching right before Yuna Kim broke up with him. It seemed he was working on damage control before the inevitable happened.

    Cipres accused of sexual misconduct

    I did not make any blanket statements at all. All I said that unless the victim was using a Finsta or posing as an adult-aged woman (which covers the whole adopting "alias" thing you added just now) and used her photos to lure Morgan, then I personally found any of missing's theoretical...

    I read recently that someone criticized Colman's casting as QEII by saying she had a "leftwing" face. What does that mean?

    I don't respect the way Pete Buttigieg turned the question regarding whether his work at McKinsey factored into their decision to layoff thousands of workers into an attack for Medicaid for All: https://twitter.com/elivalley/status/1204644016194772995?s=20

    Nobunari Oda: Harassment forced me to quit as Kansai University coach

    Sorry, I meant to say she’s right-handed but naturally skates clockwise. I edited the original post, haha. She skates/spins counter-clockwise for Alex. I think it helps that she’s in ice dance and not pairs where jumps and throws and stuff are elements.

    Gymnastic news #22 - Tokyo or bust

    I don’t care if it has become somewhat of a signature catchphrase, please get rid of the “oh!” And hand over the mouth thing. Please.

    Cipres accused of sexual misconduct

    @Willowway, thank you for clarifying that they most likely did not share the same coaches but skated at the same rink and that John and Silvia’s role was to be aggressive about protecting their Star skater and stepping outside their bounds and also failing to report as mandatory reporters.
