ETA - Summary of this:
Oda left for US on 26th for training.
In his press conference at the airport he spoke of his eagerness as "I'd like to be able to perform with joy."
He apologized anew for the incident, and said that he "wanted to be in competitions" while he was out of the scene.
Oda will train in US for about 2 weeks and then participate in a show in Korea, and will make his comeback in Japan in the "Dream on Ice" this June.
Mr. Ito showed expectations as "We'd like to see him in 2 GPs. We hope he works hard to have results in the high ranks."
ETA - Summary of this: (The same information omitted)
Morozov is the new coach for Oda. This was revealed by Mr. Ito on 26th.
Mr. Morozov has been coaching Takahashi, but Ito said whether Takahashi will still have him as his coach is to be determined.
ETA - On 27th came this news on NikkanSports; extracted and again repetition omitted:
Oda signed contract with his rival's coach. ...He left yesterday for NJ where Morozov has his camp.
This indeed is something we've never heard of and unrealistic, Oda and Takahashi are rivals competing to get the ticket for the Olympics.
Oda said at the airport "To be the top runner heading for Vancouver Olympics, I'd like to absorb new things from the new coach."
Takahashi side couldn't hide being perplexed by this unprecedented situation of the rival signing contract with his own coach.
A person on his side said "(We) can't imagine such sharing of the coach with his rival in Takahashi's mind. If thing go on as they do now, (we think) he'll have an end (to the relation with Morozov)."
According to him, the talk came from the JSF two weeks after the Worlds '08, but no approach from Oda's side nor from Morozov's, but was followed by the rumour about Oda practicing with Morozov.
