Carolina Kostner returned to Alexei Mishin to prepare for the World Championships 2018.
Carolina came to St. Petersburg almost immediately after the Games and said she agrees to any terms, If only I agree to resume my work with her. I had a seminar planned in Macedonia in early March, so Kostner herself called their federation of figure skating to postpone this seminar to a later time. The problem is that I have a very busy schedule now …
I do not know whether I will find an opportunity to go to Milan. The problem is that I have a very busy schedule of seminars. Just after Macedonia I will fly to the UAE, then – to Poland and Estonia. Perhaps I’ll be able to find an opportunity to find a couple of days, but even if not, nothing terrible will happen. For me, it’s not important to sit with a titled student in the “Kiss and Cry”, I’m no longer a young coach who is hungry for recognition.
Previously, I repeatedly suggested Carolina some changes that could raise the base value of her program and, accordingly, the chances for a better result, but she did not agree. Now Kostner agrees on everything, whatever I offer her in training. We are really planning to complicate technical content and I do not think that it will be a problem for her.
