    Question about Tarasova

    She seems to be an amzing coach (and her team) able to bring out the very best in skaters so I was wondering who else she has coached?? The ones I know of so far:

    Shizuka (of course! )
    Sasha Cohen
    Alexei Yagudin
    Andrei Griazev
    Daisuke Takahashi
    Grischuk/Platov ???
    Anissina/Peizerat ???

    I'm sure there are many more so who else has she coached, how long has she been coaching, has she ever coached pairs, and was she ever a skater?? (That last question seems to make me laugh!! hehe)

    Thanks!

    Yes to G&P and Usova and Platov

    Also add Ilia Kulik to the list

    Didn't she also coach B&B (can't spell their full names) in the 80s?

    I like her and find her very colorful. she is everywhere and was so in Dortmund

    I had inadvertetly left out Daisuke in my "special skaters in Dortmund". She's done a nice job with him but I think her 'baby' is Andre.

    Just before her break with Morosov, they seemed to have half the Ice Dancing elite. B&K, G&G, L&T...

    Bestemianova/Bukin - Olympic gold in ice dancing in 1988
    Klimova/Ponomarenko - Olympic gold in ice dancing in 1992
    Rodnina/Saitzev - Olympic gold in pairs in 1976

    It looks like TAT is only missing olympic gold in the ladies' event for her collection. :D

    Tarassova used to be a pair skater but had to stop due to injury (I think it was her partner who got injured, but not sure about that) when she was 18 and she immediately decided to become a coach. - BTW her father, Anatol Tarassov, was a quite famous hockey player.
    Her first adult students were pair skaters Chernajewa/Blagow and they placed 6th at their first Olympics in 1972.

    DivakawaFan, why would that make you laugh? Just wondering.

    Also, if I am not mistaken, hasn't she worked with Shen & Zhao?

    I thought she was an ice dancer, not a pairs skater.

    Hehe I don't know, I just cannot imagine her out on the ice. of course she s much older now, so it sounds like she was a skater when she was young.

    She worked with S/Z, WOW I never knew that. How could i forget Ilia Kulik, that was when I first noticed her. Am i right in saying that between say 1994 and 1998 she didn't have as many top-tier students as had/does now???

    DivakawaFan, I have a small video clip of her on the ice working and skating. It was during Alexei's time. It is wonderful!! She takes off and goes around the rink; she looks so smooth and elegant. I think it was only in the last couple of years working with Alexei that she stopped working in ice skates.

    She also worked with Fusi-Poli and Margalio, didn't she?

    I got this info, i.e. that TAT was pairs skater, from an article in the Russian journal "Itogi", which is not specialized in sports. So there might be an error in that, but there was also a pic of TAT and her former partner (Georgij Proskurnij) and from the position it looked much more like pairs skating.
