Did you know this existed?
Tarasova has an official site, I just discovered this last night:
The site is in Russian, but an English version is available at the bottom right of the screen.
Well I knew - but as the site was down for a while it's good you found it again and let us know.... :D
and... World Peace!
It is far less complete in English than it is in Russian. The first story that is posted in the Russian version is about a general physical trainer, Leonid Raitsin, who has been denied a US visa. It says the Raitsin has helped both Kulik and Yagudin, and that Tarasova wanted him to help Sasha. It says the official invitation was sponsored by both Tarasova and IMG. In a brief interview with Raitsin, he says that he had invitations also from Alexander Abt, Marina Zueva, and Nikolai Morozov. It seems that he does mainly physical training geared toward figure skating, but also takes phychology into account. From what he talked about in an interview when he described how he has helped Kulik and Yagudin, it sound like he could have really helped Sasha as well.
wow that's neat! I didn't know that she had a site
