    Coaches: what did they do before?

    So because it is the off-season and I am missing skating so much. I ask myself really important questions like "oh this coach, what did he do before? was he a skater? or maybe a snake-trainer?" Of course basically everybody was a skater. In my youtube wanderings I also found some footage of Mishin and Moskvina or TAT skating. And so I decided to try to compile a list of the coaches (and choreographers) I can think of and link to a video of them skating!

    First we have the coaches that were great skating champions themselves:

    Wow, what a spectacular post! Thanks for all the research, daphenaxa.

    Is Lori Nichol one of the people in red here?

    I have a long ago recorded vid of Yasa Nechaeva and Yuri Chesnichenko doing their gala performance at Skate Canada where they won silver circa 1990 IIRC but web vids of them are as rare as hens teeth. Perhaps some of our Russian friends have their vids.

    What an interesting post! Thanks, OP.

    Off topic, but I just started watching the vid of Pasquale Camerlengo and the story of Calegari's dad at the beginning of the vid made me laugh. You tell 'em, dad!

    Does anybody knows the background of Nanami Abe who coached Yuzu from young till he moved to Orser? I just found out that she also choreographed for Akiko and Dai before.

    I really tried everything to find vids from them using their Russian names and all but I didn't find anything. Just a little kid skater who's name is, funnily enough Yaroslav Nechaev!!

    Nanami is trully a mystery. :/ Maybe a Japanese person could help. OT but I found this video of her coaching Yuzuru to quad. http://transitions101.tumblr.com/pos...abe-trained-16

    Hmm, this is hard, I read some article a really long time ago on tumblr, she said she learned how to do choreography from Russian coaches but I don't know much else about her background

    Hey, I appreciate you trying! I will ask Yasa if she destroyed all her tapes so her students couldn't see them! LOL!
