    Alexe Gilles changes coaches

    According to the usfsa.org site Alexe Gilles has left coach Zakrajsek and will now be training in Detroit with Sato and Dungjen. You can find the article on the website.

    Hope this change is a good one for her.

    Good for her. Mentally this could be a great move.

    She's a beautiful Lady with definite potential to be a beautiful figure skater. I think Sato and Dungjen will bring her up to her potential.

    Yeah it seemed like she was lacking motivation this season. It seemed like when she made mistakes she didn't really care.

    test

    How did you do that?

    Edited to add: OK, I see it now. Very clever.

    OT, I am watching Midred Pierce right now on Tivo.

    Yes that's clever, since GS does not have spoiler provision.

    I want Mildred's restaurant to do well real bad; I can't freaking wait to see her cooking. When life gets rough MAKE PIES AND CHICKEN DISHES.

    Interesting. Sato and Dungjen appear very much to be the "it" coaching team right now. Anyway, good for Alexe.
