    Post Piseev on new team Vorobieva/ Blanchard
    Valentin Piseev: "We have not officially approached the French Federation"

    Today, Russian figure skating federation president Valentin Piseev gave additional explanation to IA "Sportcom" regarding the new international team of Valeria Vorobieva (Russia)/ Jerome Blanchard (France) that trains in Chicago with a Russian coach Oleg Vasiliev.

    "In order for the team to skate at international competition, we do indeed need a permission of the French figure skating federation. However, such a request is made not by the coach but by the federation. We have not sent such a letter. Prior to writing and send it, I need to have a chat with the coach Oleg Vasiliev to get a clear explanation from him", commented Valentin Piseev.

    An interesting situation brewing. Thanks for the translation, Ptichka. It sounds like there are some behind the scenes issues that haven't completely come out.
