    Hi, what does Brian Joubert's dad do for a living?

    I doubt it. He isnt even as much a threat now as he used to be and he will only become less of one in the coming years. I see him retiring after 2011 or 2012.

So I wish Joubert keeps going until his heart say so, and this is the new info, Joubert will go for the summer to train in NA and search for a coach there. There are rumors about who his new coach might be, but are still rumors!
    Beginning next week, he will fly to Toronto to settle the details of his new programs.
    27 is a big difference from 30, Joubert is only a year younger than Plushenko is NOW. A few skaters past have been near the top at 26 or 27. That is pretty much the oldest for singles skaters. Plushenko also was nowhere near his prime level in Vancouver, the only reason he was able to medal was because his prime level was so dominant that he could be competitive even nowhere near what he used to be. A prime Plushenko would have destroyed the Vancouver field, certainly would have never lost to someone like Evan Lysacek the eventual winner. This is not the same as Joubert.
