I love Mr. Mishin's warm and calm smile with Liza and these kids!
Of course I always respected Mr. Mishin as the greatest/legendary coach in the world, but at the same time, he was kind of inaccessible/unapproachable as a person for me for a long time.
However, I have truly come to love and admire this dude more and more over the years! lol
(because I have matured as a person or HE has matured as a person; which was first? idk though. )

The scene- Skate America 2009 in Lake Placid
I was determined to get Mishin's autograph and picture. I observed his routine and found out where he say during practices. I also figured out that the scary looking bodyguard type Russian dude with him spent mist of the time on his phone.
So with stealth action I went in for the kill and mission was successful.
Actually I went over and said excuse me Mr. Mishin can I get an autograph and a picture. He was very nice. Had me sit down and took a pick and he did a great autograph with a picture of a skate and everything! What a nice guy! So was the scary bodyguard type dude who was laughing and smiling the whole time!
There was a period that the whole team had two or three bodyguards, I think 2009-2010, one for Mishin team in general, probably but I dunno ab that, one for Plushenko because of his wife ex husband chasing her, and one for stradivarious of Marton, which was scary,or maybe not> I think in Euros 2010 we had some books and presents for Plush, and as one of them was standing 10 meters above us, we turned up to him and said, hold them, they are not heavy for you. Not to feel useless...
Olympia I dont want to influence you, I really like Liza, and after Miyamoto left I was looking forward to watch her training more than Plush's, if that says something. Probably because they are on different preparation phase,Liza is on the creative one. I read she changed her boots and Plush changed his blades after Kenzi 's advice.
Some pics for now. The guy who is with Liza is the Usa skater Alex Johnson. You know him? He did improve a lot jump wise while in the camp and his gala was really original.
Thanks for the links.
Gotta say that after my first viewing of Liza's programs, I'm a little disappointed. I feel like there was very little choreography (although I love the way that the step sequence worked with the music in Dark Eyes). I'm not in love with either piece of music, but I'm glad that the SP wasn't the Love Story theme. I'll give more comments when I rewatch. It also seems like the programs are still very new to her and she isn't interpreting them as well as she could.
Watched Gachinski's FS, and I like the choreography and music a lot. Hopefully he'll have a better year this year than last year.

I hope, for Olympics in Sochi Plushenko will use Marton’s violin again!
