Alexei Mishin: “I would make a lot of changes in figure skating”
His comments on CoP step requirements are of interest.
I find many skaters perform unattractive step sequences that at times seem to show more lack of control and refinement than anything else.
But typically the helter-skelter steps rack up the big points.
"I don’t care which spins will Lysacek perform, whether he’ll execute a quad or a triple Axel. The fact of his comeback is what interests me.”
I wish this interview was longer as Mishin's opinions are interesting and based on a lifetime of experience.
