But now, the PCS are more important since back in COP, you needed amazing jumps and presence/charisma and you were fine.
Maybe gachanski should focus more on these personal issues mishin is talking about- unless skating is a distraction- but the results are poor.
We all know that Mishin will be pushing Tukta harder than ever after her disappointing fourth-place finish at Skate Canada. I think he was hoping for a repeat championship, and she didn't even make the podium...
I understand that she needs to get ready for TEB, but I hope he cuts her a break especially with the stress of puberty and a changing body already weighing on her. At any rate, she'll need to be pretty exemplary to make the GPF at this point.
Mishin is a co-coach of Liza, Svetlana Veretennikova is her long-time coach since she was little. From Liza's interview, she is a very loving and nurturing person. When Liza joined Mishin's group, Mishin has insisted that Veretennikova would continue to coach Liza and give her the support.
I don't know why a lot of people think that Mishin is a cruel and hard coach who is pushing hardly his skaters? You assumed something, but you don't have proofs. You should know the opinions of his pupils.
Has Liza disappointing results? Why? He was injured and it was not certain that she will be in SC. If you watched the race, you remember how happy were Liza and Mishin after Liza's skating. I think they were realistic and Liza brought the results what they expected.
The problem is Liza's weight, she hasn't grown too much, but became thicker.
borderline weight like Zhang or Flatt might give her problems because she is petite, I disagree with those who say her body will turn like Elene's
Elene had more squarish body Liza never had a big Toot toot also.
I read in Russian forum on reason Liza gained weight is because she eats too much Ice Cream.
If Liza will be ok with it, I hope Mishin monitors what she is eating or maybe she could skip meals/minimize intakes a day, that could help her imo
AlexRus said on another topic that she and her team are careful with her gaining and that she is keeping a strict diet, like other skaters(http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...-Trials/page11)
Skipping meals is bad and I hope she is advised against it. A strict diet on a 15 year old is very very unhealthy, since her body is still developing. Yes, her body shape could be troublesome buy health must come first IMO.
How would someone know what Liza eats, ice cream or not?
I cant possibly know what she eats but in the summer training I attended she was training at least 6 hours a day.
Anyway she is a 15 year old growing it is only normal she would get weight, even more than it should.
