Ok, here's old article(March 26) about Arthur being coached by Sokolovskaya. It also states that it is against rules of RSF to announce it. (supposedly you can't do it in Olympic season)http://sport.mail.ru/news/figure-skating/17557221/
Сейчас Гачинский тренируется в ЦСКА у Светланы Соколовской, а о его переходе не спешат объявлять из-за установленных Федерацией фигурного катания на коньках России (ФФККР) правил. Тем не менее, возвращение фигуриста в Санкт-Петербург не рассматривается в принципе.
Of course, this could be false information. I went to other forums to find that other potential coaches are:
That's hardly a hard-and-fast announcement.
I wonder when the announcement will come?
His new coaches are TAT and Buyanova. It was announced at "Champions Show" (27/04/2014) by Averbukh. And yes, he skated his new SP there (choreo by TAT).
Well, if Averbukh announced it at the show, it must be going to hit the press soon.
His performance at the show was stunning! The only one question now is jumps, but I hope that he will be motivated to bring them back having Kovtun in the group.
It will be very intresting to see the battle of 3 group next season - TAT (Gachinski, Kovtun), Tutberidze (Voronov, Kvitelashvilli, Kurbanov, Pitkeev (maybe fed will give him a chance in senior GP?) and Mishin (Plush , Dmitriev and Petrov (as a junior))
The only thing that surprise me: isn't Kovtun away from Mishin group because Gachinksi? Why does then Tarasove take Gachinski with the possibility to have quarrel in her group? Then it must have been not so bad between the two......
Is this the first time when Tarasova have two top male skater? Now i want to see for whom she will do more politicking ( i expect some interview where she will talk how Voronov, Menshov, Plushenko and Pitkeev are no good to worse ).
Well, at least for Gachinski seems the best move. Hope it works, for griazev, who had some similar problems didn't worked, but they are diferent skaters and i suppose that Buyanova is the main coach anyway.....
WOW! Many new interesting informations!!! Gachi and Tarasova???? I'm sad.. But I'm excited!! The season will be interesting without Plushy...He won't comepete I'm sure. For me Artur is a more watchable skater but very inconsistent in last years. ( And I never thought he is a Plushy's clone. Absolute different style, Plushy is so powerful, full of energy... Artur isn't. ). I agree, that won't be good for Artur, if he is training with Kovtun.
Plushenko, Kovtun, Gachinski would be the strongest Russian Europeans team in over a decade.
