Sorry if this is off topic or it doesn't intest you but I though it is interesting.
Florent is training with Alexei Yagudin!
Part of the interview from Figure Skating Magazine.
You are currently training with Alexei Yagudin in Courchevel. How is that working out for you?
I suffer every single day. He teaches me so much. I feel honored to have the opportunity to work with him, when very few athletes have done it in the past. I enjoy every minute of it and I seize this wonderful opportunity and make the best of it, in order to be ready for 2014.
Is there a good source of a summary which describes what Yagudin has been up to during the years since Salt Lake? He has had quite obvious opportunities to go in many different directions, and am wondering what exciting paths he has passed through. Thank you.
I don't know whether or not he was actually 'penalized' for this move, in accordance with ISU's rules back then, though.
I hope he doesn't retire from show skating anytime soon, I want to see him skate again - it's been 9 years.
I just watched his Salt Lake performances again. I was brought to tears again. He is amazing. I was wondering how his programs would have fared under the new system. I loved Gladiator with the knives. I thought to myself, well if anyone can do it...Alexei can.
I did not know that he tried to come back. Are there any videos on youtube? It seems that a skater like him would have been able to adapt to the new styles.
