Who cares!! I personally want all the skaters that do not have Russian coaches to win, because it will teach the Russian coaches a great LESSON! They are not all of that!

WHERE ARE THE FRENCH OPPOSING THIS MEAN SPIRIIT PROPAGANDA GARBAGE!! DiSGORGING LIES!!! Joubert go, you won on your own talents.

Irina has a Russian coach and cannot win, most of the time. THE EXCUSE IS HERS IS NOT THAT?? I THOUGHT ALL RUSSIANS COACHES ARE GOOD, PERIOD! ONLY THOSE WHO ARE STAYING ARE GOOD COACHES, ONCE THEY LEAVE PRESTO, THE GOODness IS GONE IS GONE, GONE, away!

THEY HAVE TO TRAIN STUDENTS ON RUSSIAN SOIL! THAT IS SOME GREAT SOIL! I wonder is it, somehow magical! Oh, I know that is where the pHOENIX will burn and rise again from its own ashes. When Russians leave, then miss out on this GREAT SIGHT! It sounds, a little funny and crazy! Some just want to continue being ARROGANT and continuing BRAGGING about Russians are the cream of the CROP!

I am glad that Russians do not do all the firsts, or we will have it figuratively thrown in our faces on the blog spaces! Come on Frenchmen speak out about Jourbert!!! I guess, I will do it!!

Thank you, It is about thing some oppose this VIVious lies. Yes, Kurt Browning is good at that! There is a lot of expertise out there and it is not all Russians! I sorry, but somehow his years without a Russian coach will not be prevalent for him winning the GOLD. THE YEARS WITH THE RUSSIANS WILL ONLY BE FOCUS ON IN OPINIG! Kurt Browning can help him on his Quads too and Timothy Goebal can too!

It is not any reason for some to go COO COO or BANANAS OVER RUSSIAN COACHES! I will GO COO COO OVER Choco Puff®, though!!! I am glad you set it straight! The wall is falling down!

Brian Joubert is no more coached by a russian trainer. He ended his partnership with Morozov right after the Olympics because Morozov had too many students and not enough time for Brian. His new coach is frenchman jean-Christophe Simond, former European champion. Last summer Brian visited Kurt Browning who helped him with his choregraphy.

Lysacek came close to FIFTH place without a Russian coach! I think it is very impressive!

To Sk8rGirl,
Congratulations to Johnny Weir for getting fourth at the World Figure Skating Championships this year. He did beat Evan Lysachek who ended up in fifth. We should congratulate both of them for beating Stephan Lambiel who ended up in sixth, in this tough new world of figure skating, in which everyone is tough to beat.
I am proud of my fellow Americans; medals or not!

Johnny Weir was eighth and Stephan Lambiel was third. Evan lysacek was fifth, as stated results. Some are the results are wrong. I will wait to see that on TV.

Sk8r Girl,

Exactly Sk8r Girl. I have many favorites based on an individual basis and I am equally proud of the Russian skaters who today are very disadvantaged. For example Oksana Domnina and her partner, who after many struggles finaly got a coach who is giving them enough training time to get into that top ten and possibly top five because they were able to get those 4 level scores for their ice dance moves, while the vast majority of her countries coaches are putting their efforts into training Americans and Canadians to brin up their level of skating to 4's.

They have shown a lot of talent and promise, even sending Belbin and Agosto home to their Russian coaches to help them make their programs more difficult and competitive, after Domnina/Shablin beat them at an ISU competition. Little problems like a fall and an ankle injury on the part of Shabalin have held them back a bit.

But I was especially proud of Domnina, for having the courage to skate for Russia, as the only real medals prospect for Russia this year even after the suicide of her father. Even with this horrible tragedy and the sadness, the talent and fluidity showed in her skating, though obviously she was a bit slower than normal. And then with all of the Russian coaches all around her who are coaching Americans, she managed a sweet smile at the end of the scores which put her into fouth. No glaring or histrionics for her. She showed class and dignity.

Without these problems, who knows what would have happened, but she will get far better than the 8th place she got last year and she has showed the world that even when everything is against Russians they may be down in the rankings but never out.

I think all Russians should be very proud of her talent, her beauty, and most of all her courage and dignity.

to Sk8r Girl,

Just because I am taking an unpopular stance in this forum because I believe the truth must be told, and sometims it is easy to get caught up in the argument, doesn't mean that I am not grown up enough to see the reality, to deal with it and to still be human enough to interact with and feel for other humans, including feeling for the various skater in the worlds.

I have my viewpoint and I live here. Only a fool (and I don't mean you Sk8r Girl) would presume to speak for me or to announce what it is that I feel in this complicated situation.

To Sk8r Girl,

I too didn't watch the coverage last night. But I looked up the results and here they are.
I am still proud of Johnny Weir as he skates with heart and artistry. It seems it was not the year for some skaters but the wheel turns.

I agree with you. And, I know you are very sophisticated.

BTW if you don 't want to sift through anymore garbage, we can continue to blog on my blogspot. Before blogs are published, they must go through my e-mail. Apparently, Montana and Media Critic had enough of the garbage and have decided stoped posting (just a speculation). Once is over, I will resign from this post as well. Feel free to register at my blog where we can resume our intelectual exchange.

Thanks Sk8r Girl,

I probably will, as I am sick of the abusive language and stalking. I recorded the coverage, minus about 20 minutes from last night, but as it took place at 1 a.m. I wasn't going to stay up for it.

I saw footage of the two Russian couples and as I predicted they moved up from the 8th and 12th place of last year. That kind of movement shows that the person is very talented and has great moves and great potential. That is about all one can hope for for this year, especially with Domnina having to deal with the tragedy of the suicide of her father. I truly believe Domnina and Shabalin would have scored higher and been on the podium without this distraction.

I didn't watch the footage of the men at all, but I taped it in case I ever want to. I plan on watching Johhny Weirs program and any Russians if they are on the tape. Otherwise, I am boycotting the coverage. I congratulated Johnny on being fourth in the short program, because it shows he still has it, but in this day and age figure skating is on a very high level.

Then I just looked up the results of the men's competition. I am not as good at copying them into the blog but I see who won and their placements. I hope I didn't do it too soon as I'm sure most people saw it last night.

I have looked up the results of the ice dance and I'm sure it is already in the news, but I will discuss that with you later.

I am very disgusted with the Russian Coaching situation, but I blame the Russian coaches the most, whatever reason they sabotagued Russian Figure skating and helped the world. But I am only human and I'm afraid some of the fall out goes to the students of those Russian coaches. I am avoiding dwelling on those thoughts, by just not watching the coverage and I probably won't watch the competitions in their entirety until there are Russians who are competitive for the podium. I am sorry if that sounds bad but that is how I feel.

As far as Domnina and Shabalin are concerned, I think they did quite well considering the ordeal she had to face ( her dad's suicide). Can you im agine the pain she could be going through in addition to the pressure of "Worlds")

You should not feel bad or sorry about your feelings. You are entitled to them. Believe me I understand how you feel. You have the right to feel disgusted about the results. That is what make our country gr8; we have the freedom of expression

Brian Joubert was only coached by Alexei Yagudin for a few months in the 2003-2004 season. He has a French coach now. Keep up!

Good for Joubert. It doesn't matter to me who coaches him as I will not be rooting for him. There are plenty of Russian coaches, coaching everyone in the world, and until the Russian program gets going in Russia, I won't be watching the figure skating anyway, as I can catch the results on any newsprogram. Until there is a true competition with a strong Russian team in the picture, I will have a lot more free time to watch my tapes of past competitions, where Russians coached Russians and the rest of the world was hoping to catch up. Or maybe I'll be busy doing smething else.

Now when Yevgeni Plushenko enters the competition I will be watching, whether he wins or loses, because he will be a true hero fighting the world and the Russian coaches who are coaching the world and winning anyway.

Keep up the double and triple comment repeats in an inane attempt to force yourself on me, as you don't seem to have the common decency and tolerance to avoid those who are avoiding you.

Go Plushenko.
