I don't think it's quite fair to say that her SP was a fluke. Trusova is not known for her consistency, although it is a very high bar on that specific issues in Russia.

Tuktamsyehva is not consistent either, Tuks entire career has been messier than Kostners, only these past 3 seasons has she become more stable.

Kostornaya left Tutberidze for Plushenko and after a short while she left Plushenko to return to Tutberidze. Trusova left Tutberidze for Plushenko and now she is going back to Tutberidze. Who is playing with those girls' minds?

At Worlds Trusova confirmed it was Trusova who asked Plush if he would train her. So not the other way around

I was thinking about that too; the Trusova news didn't even get its own thread!
Because there was no scandal? Trusova left Tutberidze without giving interviews how bad it was at Tutberidze’s group, and how finally she can be happy during her training sessions. She did give interviews to explain that she wants to learn from Pluschenko his competitive mindset (consistently landing his quads) but did it in such way that it didn’t really damage the relationship with Tutberidze as much as Kostornaya did. So going back, it is not such a big deal (and besides she is already third skater who returned, so it is nothing new).

What are you doing in Moscow? Have fun.

Sasha return to TT in my opinion because she and her parents realize she has a better chance to make the Russian Olympic team skating TT than PA. Unless Sasha wins Olympic gold or world's gold 2 months after the Olympics I think she bolts TT again after the Olympic season.

Scott, family event. Our son is getting married next week, after two postponements, since the original date a year ago. We had to travel through Turkey and show tests AND our proof of vaccination.

Enjoying all of the skating drama. Never a dull moment.

I wouldn't say anyone is playing with their minds. My guess is that they felt they were more successful under Tutberdize. Perhaps more confident, and/or need her approach to coaching and training which they were accustomed to.

"LIFE IS LIKE A FREE PROGRAM" - a [5-minute] documentary directed by Diana Aminova about the [Russian-born] Swiss national figure skating champion Anna Nidershtrat-Ovcharova [who retired from competition in 2015].
Anna, at a young age, has already gone down in history of figure skating.
But the main victory of her life did not bring her happiness.
The story was built on a foundation of hard work, surviving, willpower, and fighting for the dream.
