    "This is a divorce," Amodio told the paper.
    But having known Nikolai over the years, kind of predictive, right?...
    A very wise decision by Florent, I think. Best of luck to him in the new season!!!

    Another divorce I hope it was amicable. I hope he finds a permanent coach soon and that his
    training does not suffer. Thanks for the info!

    News

    Florent is training with Alexei Yagudin!
    Who are you training with at the moment and how is it going?

    Katia Krier has done a great job in coaching me during this transition. I worked with her for only three weeks, but we were able to produce great and efficient work on the ice and all I can do is thank her for that.

    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.

    OMG, is it true Fabian is now Florent's coach? http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00008739.htm Why nobody told me so?

    I thought I will be able to watch mens figure skating with a more relaxing mode myself (less tense) this season, but I have a good enough reason to root for Florent in particular, don't I?! Good luck to Florent and his team in the new season!

    Always love your enthusiasm, deedee. An IN article from the summer had a bit of discussion of Amodio and Bourzat's work together:

    He had a rather rough start at the Lombardia Trophy but I always enjoy watching him, mistakes or no. Next weekend he will compete at the French Masters. If he doesn't win that one...I'll be worried.

    And thank you from me for the link to the IN article, golden! Was an interesting read. Hope Fabian will be of a great help to him, especially skating skills and good programs/choreography.

    My first encounter with Florent in a competition live was at the first World Team Trophy, back in April 2009. He competed still at the junior circuit in 2008-09 season, but did join WTT 1 with Brian Joubert as the second best French man and honorably placed 10th (SP 7th/LP 11th) to help the French team. He wasn't popular among Japanese skating fans yet, but he was a joy to watch and did capture audience hearts with his charm there.

    ETA Loved your current avator. So cute!
