But...Wagner got Sasha a world medal. None of her other coaches could get her to stand up more than 1 out of 3 sections of the competitions. Wagner coached her to 1 in the q/r and the best SP I have seen Sasha give. I like Wagner as a coach, just not as a choreographer. Maybe TAT will do Sasha's choreography next year? Hope so.
I agree that Robin was able to do what TT couldn't. She did skate 2 clean programs back to back and she stood on her feet in the LP. Got that world medal. I do think the breathing thing has helped as while the LP wasn't perfect it was better than at Nats. I think Robin will be a good coach for Sasha. Choreographically I don't know yet as this was a redo of a program not one from scratch. I don't think Sasha wanted to do Swan Lake in the first place but TT insisted. I heard she's got a new exhibition program that Robin did so we'll see how that is.
