After several Russian newspapers hinted at Sasha's coaching switch today, Pushenko has now confirmed that Alexandra Trusova will be coached at his academy

Your thoughts?

Update: Coach Rozanov allegedly also left Team Tutberidze. He is the coach who mainly works with novice skaters, but also is the one who taught several skaters their Quads/3As. This is big. Omg

Update 2: Veronika Zhilina and her sister also move from Team Tutberidze to Plushenko.

Update 3: Sasha has already choosen music for both of her programs and now they are in search for choreographers. They may even work with foreign choreographers. Plushenko mentions that Sasha knows that she needs to work on her components and therefore they will work on that and hire specialists who will help her.

I find this very exciting. His development as an artist came after his jumps so he should be able to guide her well through a similar time in her career. I also think that with all Plushenko's quad prowess he will assist her with consistency on those amazing jumps!

My thoughts: wow o_o I know there were rumours a few months back that one of the 3 A was going to leave after this season, and Trusova seemed like the most likely one, given how the season panned out for her. But I was still surprised when I heard the news. I hope she gets the attention she needs to further develop her skills.

Hot Coach (Rozanov) is so good with the little kids.

We are all locked in our houses and there is STILL skating drama!

I'm flabbergasted!

Skating is never without drama even when there's no skating, I have learned in these recent times

All year long it seemed that Trusova was apart from the rest of the team-I think this was more about her (or her parents) than Eteri-you could sense the tension. I really hoped though that they would work something out, as I think this change is a mistake. I suspect it might be about money more than anything, Plushenko has claimed he and his wife can do a much better job with endorsement money, and God knows Eteri takes a pretty big cut. We shall see I guess.

This is going to require a LOT of popcorn :popcorn: :drama:

I'm just surprised that no one saw this coming with at least one of them (and I wouldn't lay odds that she's the last). I'm not a fan of hers, but I hope it pans out well for everyone - well, as much as it can.

My guess is that we will see more quads, but little in the way of presentation skill development.

I’m not mad but... she’s gonna lose her Eteri bonus:popcorn: I’m interested to see how her jumps and pcs (?) develop with Plushenko though. Now... I wonder what her programs will be??

Whatever happens, I want her to succeed.

I'm confused about this because aren't they all in self isolation? Was this arranged before and after quarantine.
I know we all thought that Sasha would be the last to leave, but one bad season can change everything. She was being beaten by the other girls and thought "I need to change SOMETHING"
but also, I lowkey need Eteri to confirm for it to be real.
(Plushenko 1, Eteri 0?)

According to TSL, Veronika and Alyona Zhilina also moved to Plushenko. I don't care for their presentation most of the time, but TSL tends to have decent information.
