Of course part of this congrats goes to Brian Joubert because he has done a lot of hard work, but I have to give Kurt credit here for bringing about a new side to Brian's skating. I was never a huge Joubert fan; I thought he was a good jumper but that was about it. I never thought he had any style or flair to his skating. I love the work Kurt has done on improving Brian's artistic side. I watched his gala performance of "Clocks" and one could see Kurt stamped all over it. It sort of reminds me of how Sandra Bezic brought out the artistic side of Brian Boitano.

I hope some of our Canadian skaters will work with Kurt. Way to go Kurt!
