According to a Gazetta journalist on twitter, Mishin will indeed be Carolina's coach at Golden Spin.

So that's 3 new students now. Carolina, Zijun (temp or permanent, I don't know) and Misha Ge (ISU profile lists Mishin as an official coach and Mishin did coach him at Skate Canada).

Back then when I said I thought there were around 40 students in Mishin's school, well that number is way off. 40 is just the "known" skaters. The total number according to this article is 278. Of course this includes pair skaters as well as complete beginners but it is a huge number.

Mishin is smart. He can handle it. I'm worried because of his age. He needs to work all day long.
I guess that with Plushenko not really needing him at the moment he needs the distraction. And it's nice that he's now willing to take on more women, it looks as if females are becoming more interesting to him the older he gets. I wonder wether Carolina is already fluent in Russian, does anyone know? Or do they speak English with each other? Carolina speaks 5 languages already so I can totally see her learning another language.

Don't know if she is coached by Mishin, but given that her Mum was, this seemed like the most appropriate place to post it.

Irina Slutskaya's daughter, Vavara, was recently 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] in a competition in Moscow.

I really liked Irina, so I am really looking forward to the prospect of watching her daughter in the future.

All the best Varvara!

I decided to quote posts from the coaching change thread here re:Zijun

It's probably true, although no one knows for sure how long it will last.

I watched COC live this year, including Ladies competitions. During the warmups, it was Mishin (plus Misha Ge's dad) who stood beside the rink boards and gave instructions to Zijun, not Mr. Gao Haijun who was still the nominal coach and accompanied her to K&C.

Besides, Zijun said in a post-competition interview that she was going to train with Mishin very soon. From what I heard from other Chinese fans, Mr. Gao will no longer be Zijun's coach and will return to his previous club as his contract with Zijun had already expired.


Zijun is leaving home very soon...her last post on weibo is a hug with Sui Wenjing, with a caption "the last hug before leaving". Lots of fans wished her good luck in Russia.

And she has probably given us hints by posting pictures with Mishin (and Gao) from the closing banquet, with the caption "Going forward just for my dreams"

Just wait for social media posts by her and her new training fellows. We are going to find out in a short time.

Unfortunately I didn't find the interview where Zijun talked about switching to Mishin's group. Things mixed up in my mind. Instead I found one where she said she would follow coaching arrangements by the national team, without specifying her new coach (some Chinese fans showed dissatisfaction with her frequent coaching changes and she knew it). In many cases the official news outlets may serve as means to cover things up.

So Zijun's working under Mishin now? I really hope this works out! She's got so many wonderful qualities; hopefully Mishin will figure out how to tackle those pesky URs, because considering the height and flow of her jumps, those technical issues are somewhat baffling.

Long time no see, Sandpiper - glad to see you back.:)

Yeah, it's been... a year, I think?! And again no Liza at GPF :cry: Though I should probably post more about that on her thread.
