This is a place to talk about Russian coach Eteri Tutberidze, her skaters, her group, and anything else that might come up! While Eteri isn't the most experienced coach, in the past few years she has coached several of her skaters to great success, primarily on the junior level, but also on the senior level. I also like how she seems very supportive of her skaters- and of course the jacket she always wears to competitions

Please feel free to share any news, information, or ideas about Eteri and her skaters here!

Her current group also includes: Moris Kvitelashvili, Vladislav Tarasenko, Alexei Erokhov, Rahat Bralin, Yakov Zenko, Daniil Samsonov, Nikolai Gerasimov, Ilya Skirda, Roman Afanasyev, Diana Davis, Anna Shcherbakova, Anastasiya Kolganova, Ksenia Markina, Xenia Zevahina, Daria Panenkova, Alina Zagitova, Valery Emelyanov, and Eva Novakhova. (Thanks to stryke for all the names!)

Yes, I got bored, it was time for a change. And I don't want to be stuck in the past when there are so many good skaters competing right now.

Random question - can someone explain why Eteri is sometimes referred to as "Eteri Bonner" and other times "Eteri Georgievna"? I understand patronymics, but I don't get where the "Bonner" comes from.

There's an example in this article, which is obviously Google translated...so your explanation is probably the most logical. I've seen it in a few other places too.

Alina moved to Eteri group only the current season. Her PB before this moving was 139.25
