So is she saying that she will never match the conditions/arrangement offered by another coach? That's kind of smart. It'll spare her a lot of drama. She's staying stay...or go, you're call.
It's a google translate... she is talking more about special treatment

So it's confirmed that Zhilina has also left... makes sense sort of if Rozanov was her main coach

True. I think it's likely, however, that Plushenko would more likely to spend more time with and devote more resources to Trusova in comparison to someone like Ekaterina Ryabova, for example.
Ryabova's main coach is Volkov. She is in his team. At the Academy there are some teams

And an interview with Gleikhengauz for Russian Figure skating federation

This sounds more like students going with their coach than an issue with Tutberidze per se. Coaches leave for various reasons and some take their students with them. Trusova will come out of this even stronger given her work ethic and the fact she's returning to her original teacher. I'm looking forward to see how this works for her. I ignore the Plushenko aspect as he's a coach in name only anyway. He's neither a positive or negative factor. It's all about Volkov and the quads.

Wait, Volkov has never been a part of Tutberidze’s group. And he has been coaching together with Pluschenko for few years now.

Rozanov - yes, he was a part of Tutberidze’s group from 2018 (I think), but mostly worked with novices and juniors

I should have put a paragraph break in. :lol: We have two skaters and one coach moving to the new rink. Or so it seems.

Well, according to Ermolina's interview with Gleikhengauze all the talking was done by Trusova's parents and she is not answering their calls. Sounds a bit like a pattern with their leaving pupils...

And btw, Guliakova's name starts with an A.

Then she has potential. I still don’t believe she would want to move though, because with Mishin she is getting much more individual attention and she is one of his top skaters. In Tutberidze, she would be one of the least accomplished skaters and I don’t think she would get that much attention.

I think her parents are every bit as ambitious as she is. Guess they figured she could progress better back with Volkov.

I'm amazed Tinami has not posted in this thread yet. I'm preparing myself for 350 links about how Trusova is an evil traitor with wonderful sources like Yahoo Answers and Epoch News and @JannyIsSatanIncarnate on twitter.

Indeed. A dog for a triple Axel speaks to that. I just hope it wasn't completely her parents decision.
I suspect it was the primary source. They want those quads. She just got another new dog so there was likely some motivating factor. :lol:

She's probably calibrating her craziness as we speak.

I'd forgotten Konstantinova switched to Plushenko's rink earlier. Interesting mix of senor skaters there now. They do have some really good juniors so maybe Volkov is building a program. There really aren't many apart from Tutberidze et al., with female skaters now except Mishin and his are limited. Buianova is hit and miss. Panova and Tsareva have juniors (unless Sinitsyna goes senior). Rukavicin has Perkova, Gubanova and Nugumanova (and we'll leave it at that as to their current success...Gub is still being robbed :mad: ) so if Trusova is on the world podium next season there might be some movement within Russia.Or not.

It takes time to clean up a nuclear meltdown.

English translation of the interview with Gleikhengauz.

The situation between the coaches is just as interesting as the athletes, to be honest. Rozanov must seeking a more favourable role in Plushenko's group. Of course it would be easy for Gleikhengauz to judge, but Gleikhengauz has wrangled himself into an extremely high profile position for a choreographer in his 20s.

It seems like Rozanov has left and taken a few students with him.

The thing with 'rona is that it's disrupting workplaces all around the world. When people don't go into work everyday, control is lost and these things start happening.

Why is there judgement? Gleikhengauz would be the first to understand why someone would want to be in his position. As long as he isn't going anywhere, the only place Rozanov could have a similar one is with another rink.

You don't need major interruptions for people to decide to change because they can find a better position and/or working conditions. People do it all the time.

According to Sport24, Aleksandra Trusova left Eteri Tutberidze's group and is now coached by Evgeny Pluschenko.



I'd assume that if it's true indeed, than she is more likely to be coached by Aleksandr Volkov (also works at Pluschenko's rink), her first coach, rather than Pluschenko himself.
I did not see that coming.

Do we think this split will eclipse the Medvedevea-Tutberidze split in DRAMA!?
Perhaps Trusova should head over to Brian Orser.

I call BRAT. Skating is only going to get harder for her as she grows. Hope she can adapt.

I don't think Eteri's strong suit is post pubescent Ladies.
