    Daisuke Takahashi back to Nikolai Morozov

    According to Artur Werner, Daisuke's returning to Nikolai Morozov to train with him in the US this summer. And they'll be working together until Sochi, apparently. See: http://www.wer-art.com/conf/

    According to Google Translate:

    Yesterday we talked with [Morozov] by phone on various topics relating to his disciples, and so on, and Nicholas told me to return Takahashi, permitting to publish this news today at the conference.
    Are there any other sources verifying this?

    EDIT: Yep. A Russian article here: http://rsport.ru/figure_skating/20120614/601084215.html

    "We, along with Daisuke decided to resume cooperation, - said Morozov told" F-Sport. "- I would be interested to work again with the skater. In addition, I believe that the presence of such a master in our group will benefit other students in my preparation for the Olympic Games in Sochi. "


    If this is true, I'm think I'm going to start throwing things. Or cry. Both, possibly....

    Worst news ever.

    To Morozov's credit, his students score mysteriously high in PCS despite having questionable CH, TR and SS. And his Russian politicking clout may come in handy since the Olympics are going to be in Sochi....but frankly, if this is the price of winning an OGM, I'd rather see Daisuke lose with the beautiful, artistic and intricate programs he has now than win the OGM with some horrible Morozov hot mess program.

    Now I m thinking about it a Morosoved Dai with the gold medal around his neck cant be worse than SnakesnScheherazade&Co, so even that way i think I would be happy at the end.
    Seriously I thought skaters who were in the middle pack and couldnt have a break through as tops would go to Morosov, Daisuke doesnt need Morosov for sure, maybe Morosov needs him. I m also surprised RF didnt object Morosov to take in his team King Daisuke, i know he has already Amodio who is not Russian, but Amodio is not Daisuke level.

    I just checked Dai's forum and they are reporting a tweet from Russian sportswriter Tatjana Flade that an announcement will be made today.
    I could not open the tweet probably because I am not a member or it could be just my computer.

    ^The tweet says (translation by google)

    This transition has already told me in Moscow in May. Agent Takahashi then neither confirmed nor denied. He promised a press release tomorrow.

    OMG It's must be a joke……

    ok,well,although I don't like recent Morozov,what he did with Daisuke isn't very bad.

    BUT because of Russian federation,it look like a conspiracy...Do you think Russia Federation will allow a coach who works with most of their skaters teach their biggest enemy then win the gold in Russia?I think they won't do this unless they want to control their ememy……

    It's all Bloody Russia! They bribed Krall and now JSF in order to weaken the Men's field and let Plush to win the OGM!!! Morozov is reported to board a plane to Japan with a suspicious suitcase. Probably the rest of the bribe will be paid under to the table to Dai himself.
    if this is the price of winning an OGM
    Well folks, seriously speaking I suspect that is the true reason, if the story is true in the first place. The Flade's timing is rather weird- since early May sittig on such a news until Werner published it. Now it's mid-June, while Dai and Miki chatted during May PIW shows that they are both lucky that they survived Morozov. It doesn't seem like he was going to come back to him gladly. I see the similarity with Hanyu situation and his rather unexpected coach change. Sounds like JSF decide the stuff behind skaters' backs, without bothering much to ask their opinions. Maybe JSF remember Dai's wins when he was with Morozov, and now they hope he will put Dai's quads and technique back to that level. But isn't it a little naive? Btw, the only source said about coaching, so choreo could be someone else's, not Nikolai's. But in general, I don't find this news stylish at all.

    Has Lori done any choreo for Daisuke yet? I haven't come across any report of them actually working together.

    Whether or not he is going to work with Morozov, which would be part time in the US if true, something newsworthy is happening and we just have to wait for the announcement today. At least it is not a rumour going around for a long time without any verification.

    Just when you thought the drama was only in ice dance....Dai don't do it...and I felt the same way when Patrick let go of Christy Krall...don't do it...can we get Shae-Lynn Bourne to do an intervention for Dai?
