    The short story of what happened to Artur is that he had ONE bad competition at the worst possible time (2012 Worlds) and got chucked on the scrapheap. The long story is that something happened between his wonderful silver at Euros 2012 and Worlds 2012. He finished 17th (but, it must be noted, with a higher TSS than Kovtun's 17th the next year!), got tossed on the scrapheap, had an unexpected growth spurt, a back injury, and developed flat feet which caused leg numbness. And then of course there was also a mysterious personal issue that Mishin alluded to once but declined to elaborate on since it was Artur's private business. So basically, he had a pretty rubbish two years. But he's not done yet.

    Are these videos recent? Because now I'm feeling like a very inferior Gachi fan if they are since I haven't seen them.

    Do we know who the new coach is yet? I'm tying myself in knots with this rumour of the horrible coach.

    It's fun! I don't think this is an actual program part (it looked more like Artur was goofing around), but it was really interesting. I'm just happy to see him laughing and smiling.

    Because she trains at CSKA along with Sotnikova, Kovtun, Bush, Proklova, etc.

    Mishin has confirmed(?) that Gachinsky has gone to Sokolovskaya. http://www.sports.ru/others/figure-s...158955146.html

    Isn't Sokolovskaya famous for being skater reaper?

    Apparently he has a new girl, good. Every time Gerboldt dated a Russian skater their career went in the trash so I say good riddance

    Yeah, I'll stay positive for now before I get too upset. But I think she is the only one at CSKA with openings which is why Shelepen and Bush went to her, she was not their first choice, Buyanova was but she didn't want them. I'm sure she was not his first choice either at least I hope not

    OMG, such a lame article.
    The rules forbid to announce going to the new coach before the season ends. So no, there isn't official corfirmation. There are
    - only one phrase from Mishin "Gachinski went away from our Saint-Petersburg unsettled state"
    - inaccurate retelling of Artur's story from moving to St-Petersburg to nowadays (I'm pretty sure it retells part of BaltInfo article http://www.baltinfo.ru/2014/02/27/Al...le-Mane-410629 )
    - claiming he trains with Sokolovskaya, but they "don't hurry to announce it because of the rules"

    The same reporter wrote the piece about anonimous sourse claiming that Lena and Nikita will break up, so...
    I have no idea what happened to ITAR-TASS, they used to be a reliable agency, and now they publish that trash.
