Thank you for this thread!

Other current students include Alexander Petrov: http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?55519-Alexander-Petrov and Elizaveta Nugumanova (not coached directly by him, IIRC, but part of his group): http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?54470-Elizaveta-Nugumanova

And of course, no list of former students is complete without Alexei Yagudin :)p): http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?39933-Alexei-Yagudin

No Fan Fest here, but Olympic champion Alexei Urmanov definitely deserves a mention. I'll just leave his Swan Lake performance here. (Yes, it was a great skate, regardless of the outfit!)

Yay, a thread that is long overdue! It's impossible to imagine Russian skating, particularly Russian men's skating, as we know it today without him.

I have a cute video to share, but never had quite the right place to do so - a visit to Mishin's dacha. You get to see him chasing ducks at the beginning. :laugh2: I would love it if someone could translate.

Yes I remember this and being super impressed with how good his English is!!!

Thanks for all the fantastic links, I will also add them to the original post!

I know - I was too; and so surprised, as I'd never heard him speak English before.

Mishin was a guest on a talk show this summer.

samkrut@mail.ru kindly provided a translation toward the bottom of this page.

Also, he doesn't have a fanfest, but Artur Dmitriev Jr. is also a student of Mishin's to add to the list. He doesn't look too bad this season, although he hasn't competed yet internationally. Looks like he will be at the Ice Challenge in Austria in a couple weeks.

Thank you everyone for all the links! I am slowly but surely adding them to the original post.

I know I'm the one who created this thread, but quite honestly, I never actually knew Mischin was this interesting :rofl: I knew I respected his coaching and admired his no nonsense, common sense philosophies and statements he expresses in interviews, but he really has had a pretty fascinating life on top of that :rock:

Artur Dmitriev Jr. set a new PB at the Ice Challenge today in Graz - 84.46, less than a point behind Jason Brown. I haven't found his program on Youtube yet, hopefully someone will upload it (or you can search through the archived stream, but idk if anyone is that interested). He seemed like he was channeling Plushy from the opening 4T-3T. It's nice to see him getting off to a good start this season, and I honestly would love to see him win this thing, but I won't get my hopes too high.
