    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.
