I appreciate that Patrick did not choose a "hot" coach but one that he felt a good connection with and who could help him with his main concern, the big jumps. Krall, like all his previous coaches, saw his talents and other attributes making for great potential and took him on when she had chosen to coach part time. Coaching is so much more than teaching of techniques. It is so essential that Krall's sense of humour keeps Patrick calm and focused at competitions. They, as a team that includes other specialists, also have an overall plan and path for a whole season and more, keeping him grounded and not be reactive to each event, like fans do.
Patrick, on his part, knows and appreciates the good people in his life to surround himself with. Smart.
Patrick's interview with the Orange Team to compare with the 2008 one. (I just noticed he was the orange one.)
