    Good lord, my crazily long post pops up x_x Thank you for your patience to go through it.

    I don't think it's fair to blame Eteri in Sima's case, either. Sima coped much better with competition under Eteri than after leaving. Perhaps we can say Eteri didn't fix her technical flaws radically, but how much could she do in only one year? Also there were quite a few factors influencing Sima's decision, like family issues, funding, chance to move up to seniors etc. As for Yulia, it's a more complex case. In short, there was serious lack of mutual understanding between Eteri and her, and the mini-competition inside the group may have added to the psychological pressure she was bearing. I feel both of them will have something to regret years later about how they could have handled their relationship, but there were factors beyond their control.

    Adian Pitkeev

    Still I don't understand the need to say "Who exactly would be a better coach for xxx than xxx?" at all. Yes, we can not offer any answer, since neither us nor the skater will ever know whether another coach works before the skater tries. I do agree, though, that skaters should not immediately hang their hopes on coaching change once they meet a major setback, and it's better to stick to a choice good enough within the limitations at present.

    Back to Adyan...Didn't the federation promise to post an interview with him a few days ago? The preview sounded exciting! Hopefully he'll disclose more about his health condition, and I'm always interested in his thoughts on many things beyond skating.

    He isn't going to the Final of Russian Cup, one of Eteri's students told.

    Yes, this season is over for him. He still hasn't healed his back injury. I'm looking forward to his interview.

    Looks like Adian visited CSKA (where Kovtun, Sotnikova, and Radionova train) today...
    http://ltk-cska.ru/ (Right now it's the first news item)

    Anyone have an idea why he was there???
    I don't think it's common to visit rival clubs, is it...?

    Interesting

    I'd love to see him put up some big scores.

    Rumor is Pitkeev is moving to CSKA. Russian forums are talking about it all day today, lots of random sources, no real confirmation so far. I guess we'll see if it's real or not in a couple of days.

    This would be a big move for him. I really wonder who would coach him there but it's likely considering his injury that he'll need a good amount of attention so hopefully it's one that doesn't have a lot of other priorities. He's one of my favorite male skaters so I'm only hoping whatever comes of this works in his best interest.

    Too bad he won't just follow Yulia to Sochi

    It has been rumoured the whole day, yes... Now people say that Raitsin, who works in CSKA, has confirmed it at one of the forums (though, I'm not too sure if this is real Raitsin or only a fake account).
    If it's true it doesn't make me too happy. Nobody of those who've come to CSKA lately, has benefited from it.

    I'm not surprised. I posted that photo of Adyan at CSKA a few weeks ago, and honestly, there didn't seem to be any reason for him to be there unless he was thinking of switching coaches....

    However, it seems like it's not a "done deal" yet...? Could it still turn out like Pogorilaya? She tried to switch to Buyanova's group, and even was seen practicing on the rink there--but ultimately the switch didn't happen...

    Separately, Adyan confirmed he has a girlfriend!

    Do you have a girlfriend???
    Yes, everyone, calm down

    I guess Alexandra Pletneva is the lucky girl after all!

    Not completely surprising even if it's true, but this is not the change I'd like to see from him, despite my wish to see his PCS rise a bit. I doubt he'd benefit from this move more than from staying with Eteri, skating-wise. Not to mention the list of frustrating stories of skaters transferred to CSKA in recent years which looks quite forbidding. I'll just pray that he won't move under a CSKA coach (especially not Sokolovskaya! ) till the truth is revealed. I'll wait for his own words about this.

    Adyan, haven't you seen how Kovtun and Samarin skate now? Please don't lose your mind Let certain CSKA coaches choose candidates for fulfilling their fierce ambition of 5 quads or 6 quads or whatever, but don't let them touch you!

    It's not a fake. No doubt about that. Raitsin has mentioned that he got a call from Buyanova and added that "Adian will come tomorrow and we will find the way" (answering the questions about the condition of Adian's back). I don't know what he actually meant. Probably he is going to shape some sort of a plan for further rehabilitation or physical exercise. By the way, there is no information on Adian's health. He hasn't been training since the Nationals. If he has been under treatment all this time, he may have recovered.
