(That second sentence could have been written a little better.)Jeff Buttle is one of the leading choreographers, performers and personalities in the sport today. The 2008 World Figure Skating Champion is currently leaving his mark on many of the top skaters in the world, including Patrick Chan, Yuzuru Hanyu and Elizaveta Tuktamysheva. In our interview with Jeff, he discusses his relationship with David Wilson, the inspiration behind many of his memorable programs, the implications of competing and choreographing under the International Judging System and the people who have inspired him throughout the course of his career.
He also talks briefly about David Wilson, Michelle Kwan (training with her up to the 2005-2006 season), Mao Asada, and Yuna Kim (not in relation to each other). It was an enjoyable interview to listen to.
