Maybe I shouldn't put this here, because I see nothing from Daniel, but does this mean Daniel has officially left Lorenzo Magri for Aleksey Letov and Olga Ganicheva at SCOB? I know he has been skating there during the summer. The other skaters mentioned have Olga and Aleksey listed as their coaches:

^^ Thanks for sharing @el henry. It could be, as you say, that they are referencing the fact that Daniel has been studying with them for the summer. Or it could just as easily be that he's switching coaches and it hasn't been announced yet. It's also possible that the Letovs are consulting and considered to be part of Daniel's coaching team, but that Magri will remain his primary coach during the season. We won't know unless it's clarified.

Official confirmation that Caroline Green and Michael Parsons are now training at MIDA (Charlie White, Tanith White, Greg Zuerlein). Their previous coaches were Alexei Kiliakov and Elena Novak at WISA.



(Caroline has an identical post)

Again, I suspect that Green/Parsons began thinking about moving on once their season ended. They may have reached out to MIDA, or vice-versa, or perhaps the suggestion was made to them by a third party. As a result of Green/ Parsons deciding to move on, seemingly room was available for Diana and Gleb at WISA. That appears to be the most likely scenario.

Glad to finally officially find out where G/P are now training!

Bradie Tennell not only changing coaches but moving to France. Wow.

New coach: Benoît Richaud. Old coach: Tom Zakrasjek


Not gonna lie -- I'm happy about this and very excited for her. I don't think Tom Z. did a whole lot for her. I realize she's been injured for a while. But she's collaborated well with Benoit -- at least for choreography anyway. Anyone know if Sergei Rozanov is still working with Benoit? He could be a great technician for her.

Agreed. When I heard she was coming back, I couldn’t help but be a bit nervous because of all the injuries to Tom Z skaters. I wondered how long Bradie would be able to skate before being injured again. She seems to work welol with Richaud, so I think this is a great move for her.

Good luck to Bradie and Conrad! I hope Bradie's injury has healed by now.
I look forward to seeing Bradie on the GP. She's not switching countries though, right?
