I was surprised to hear Igor Shpilband team has been practically dissolved after the Olympics. So many teams, including his no. 1 duet Madison and Evan, decided to work with other coaches or split while Greg and Fabian also decided to try somewhere new. It seems Fabian has just started coaching on his own in France and Greg joined other coaching team in the U.S. After Krylova and Camarlengo split Pasquale has joined his forces with Igor and a completely new coaching tandem seems to be emerging from ashes. Such drastic changes immediately after the Olympics are probably nothing new, but I think what has happened with Igor's old team is quite devastating. Any ideas or insider news why has such a situation occurred? It seems as if all of a sudden all those people came up with the idea that Igor was not "good enough" for them and that they would not start winning under him. Of course, better to make coaching changes at the beginning of the new quad, but still, this situation is what has surprised me most among the coaching teams this off season.
Irrespective of everything, I hope Igor and Pasquale's union will bring them a lot of success and that in the near future we will see their teams winning medals at major ISU events.
