FIGURE SKATING VIEW of Helen VAYTSEKHOVSKOY
NOT OUR SASHA
"Tarasova it parted Sasha Cohen. Hardly this information appeared on the official site of the American federation of figure skating, in all Internet- forums OF THE USA began svetoprestavleniye (speculating?). The general tone of commentaries was united: how sportswoman, who made under the Tarasova management in the incomplete two years this mad jump in the class, could leave trainer two weeks before USA National Championships? And to who does Cohen depart to? To the tutor of Sarah Hughes, whose nedokruchennye leaps on the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City became parable into yazytsekh?! Break, it would seem, nothing it betokened. Cohen is brilliant, another word you will not select, She won three stages in the Grand Prix Series, which gave to many to completely categorically forecast occasion (predict?): here is it, the eighth gold Olympic medal of Tarasova coach. And somehow to the second plan moved away the fact that to the games in Turin even longer two years and not one hundred occupations. It does not be worthwhile to deceive by cunning: Tarasova for sure it agreed to the collaboration with the American woman after the World Championships in Nagano revolvers Olympic 2002 - precisely because it looked after in sufficiently unstable devchushke the advances of Olympic material. The step by step liquidation of weak places began from that, from what must it was. Entire pre-seasonal part of the preparation they dedicated to "physics", for which into America they invited one of the best even in THE USSR specialists. Result proved to be presently. Even the largest skeptics could not but recognize: Cohen pre-2002 and Cohen present differ themselves from each other as sky from the earth. Not he was never specialist in Tarasova's leaps, but, in addition trainers themselves into one voice asserted: if in Cohen arise serious problems, its tutor will here find person, capable of removing the gaps of technical formation within the most compressed periods. Problem proved to be in other. Even in the beginning of the competing season, when nothing it betokened failure in the fixed victorious mechanism, Tarasova it mentioned, that it did not suspect, how heavily it will prove to be to work with the sportswoman with the mentality completely different from the Russian. The first the forerunner of contradictions arose before the secondary from the point of view of amateurish calendar tournament of series Pro- AM. On the eve of the competitions Cohen fell ill, but for the words of Tarasova, that one should forego the participation, followed by the sharp protest of the mom of the figure skater of Galina, out of ice who releases daughter not to the step. Specifically, it insisted on Sasha observing understanding with the American federation of figure skating. Result is known. Cohen, after leaving to ice in Detroit with the high temperature, simply it did not lose, but it fell through with the crack. During the Grand Prix Final in Colorado Springs it was noticeable that Tarasova's itself feeds no illusions apropos of possible result. Its under wardship so did not enter into the form. And it lost second time in the season. It is for some reason to me seemed that precisely at this moment the difference of mentalities entered into the clinch. Knowing, how rapidly the American media are capable of elevating their athletes into the rank of nebozhiteley, it is not difficult to represent, what balsam filled the parental soul of Galina’s. And the second defeat became what impact in a row. For sure it in its own way attempted to explain proceeding. It is very probable that in this state of the word many of those sympathizing about the fact that Tarasova - by no means god and already that is more not that specialist, who can learn Sasha not to fall, burn on beneficial soil. But Tarasova, that accustomed long years to sacrifice of central objective entire secondary and already vidyashchaya this purpose, most likely, were not understood: how it is possible to deliberately grobit' entire hard many-month work to anyone not by necessary appearance? Like by the interference in the professional process of very distant from the sport person. And indeed each in in own way own way of the rights: mentality... But further everything came out, as it was more than once. From infinite torments and hassle in Russian trainer deteriorated a status of the health, and a question, it does be worth continuing, was automatically obtained negative answer. The solution to part proved to be mutual. Therefore rapid. What here to add? It is it's a pity... "
