    Legendary Coaches

    I would like to start a thread that recognizes the great coaches, the legends and the memorable ones that have features on youtube. Please add any links to profiles if you have them so others can learn why these coaches are so special.

    To start here is a feature on Coaches Behind the Scenes

    Alexei Mishin - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OkVSC23Lj94
    Bin Yao - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QxWbKUw8is
    Brian Orser - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euuKyj4RuAE
    Carlo Fassi - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eZl9HLMMeo
    Gus Lussi - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxNN2XgDLkU
    Marina Zoueva - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hYqsZVXpm0
    Nikolai Morozov - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xx4cNd1pDBA
    Rafael Arutyunyan - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAdv_Gc5wr8
    Tatiana Tarasove - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iR-sfdlQWNU
    Tom Zakrajsek -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfVVqob7eMc

    I have not included everyone just enough to get me started. Too many features to choose from on Eteri Tuberitze so someone please suggest the best and shortest one. I am seeking features if they exist on John Nicks, Petra Burka, Tamara Moskvina, Brian Orser, Frank Carroll and Aleksei Mishin...

    If Zueva is going to be included, then Spielband should be as well.

    I can't find youtube feature for Igor Shpilband. I'd love to include him - i took lessons from him when he first started teaching in the US. I am trying to see if anyone knows of any profiles.

    Tamara Moskvina is legendary. No biographical profile needed, just this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgjIoNfOyJ4

    When I attended Skate America in 2014, I saw Frank Carroll, Alexei Mishin, Tatiana Tarasova and Tamara Moskvina. It was more exciting than seeing the skaters.

    Or this

    I don't understand anything said on the video but OMG she's amazing. Her pair teams had innovative lifts and spins before they became popular for raking points under COP. She was such a pioneer - legendary.

    I just love her spunk and the way she nurtures her skaters. Tamara is probably my favorite of all the Russian coaches.

    Do you know of a feature? I remember bits and pieces of Toller Cranston talking about Karen Preston as his student and later a junior Patrick Chan on CBC.I was hoping someone knew of a feature ont the coach.

    Oh and I remember Ted Reynolds calling him Osborn Codson, and Toller Cranston interrupted him having a small fit correcting Codson to Colson! It is from Karen Preston 1989 Worlds FS which i have a bad copy of, but is not found on YouTube anywhere.

    On Osborne Colson,
    there is this from Kury Browning's Ice Legends:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tPJ...jGTlVSm4BrvMQT
    where Patrick Chan is saying Thank you Mr Colson

    There is also this though it is more on him as a skater
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPyhhf6pinY

    This piece by Bev Smith gives quite a lot of him in his influence on Chan

    THere's also quite a lot on him in Don LAws: THe lLife of a Figure Skating Coach which you can find on google books

    Say having five champions would definitely put her in the platoon.

    Wow thank you so much!! This is exactly the kind of thing i was hoping to find. I now appreciate Mr Colson more than I did before.

    I am not keeping score by medals or number of skaters. I am simply recognizing coaches of memorable and important skaters for their excellence. Eteri has contributed many skaters that fit this criteria. Perhaps you have a nice feature on Eteri to contribute to my list?

    I love watching her with Katarina Witt even in 1994.(starts at 2 minute mark)

    I think we can say she started ladies quad revolution. I think that counts.
