Post: The skaters stopped the transfer to the show. Who is the new star coach?


Elizaveta Khudaiberdieva and Yegor Bazin, the champions of Russia in ice dancing, left Denis Samokhin’s group. This has now been announced by his former coaches. But who will try to bring the duo to a new level for at least two days will remain a mystery. Elizabeth, who was the initiator of the decisive step and was quite active on social networks, said that the spring in St. He chose to share the good news of his arrival in St. Petersburg with his fans. As Elizabeth noted, posting photos from Palace Square was the first time she saw the northern capital so beautiful.

The departure of the duet Khudaiberdiev / Bazin from Samokhin was not expected, but it certainly did not become a sensation. The victories of Elizabeth and Yegor at the stages of the Russian Grand Prix and the national championship in Krasnoyarsk were accompanied by a flurry of genuine disparaging criticism or ironic comments. The duo did not fall in any of the main competitions of the season. Americans Madison Chalk and Ivan Bates also allowed the fall in freedance, although they became world champions. As Irina Zhuk, who accompanied Saitama to the Hungarian duet, emphasized in a commentary for RIA Novosti, none of the experts had any doubts about their superiority over their rivals.

Even Samokhin expressed doubts about the justice of the victories of his wards. In Krasnoyarsk, he in no way called the rental of Khudaibedieva and Bazin champions. There were no rivals to compete with Elizabeth and Yegor. The performance of Vasilisa Kaganovskaya and Valery Angelopol, who missed the Russian champions in the final of the Grand Prix in St. Petersburg, impressed experts, fans and journalists even more. As often happened, skaters saw a change of coach as a way out of a protracted creative crisis.

The names of the new coach Khudaiberdiyeva and Bazin were not disclosed after information emerged that Samokhin had left the group. The fog in the media area was brought in by Alexander Zhulin. He stated that he was very impressed with the duet and did not hesitate to work with him. Only further talk has been postponed to Monday. In keeping with the established tradition, the leaders of the FFKKR not only comment on the passing of the Russian champions, but even pretend not to know about it. As a matter of fact, skaters cannot submit any applications until Monday. Labor law allows two days off.

The question immediately arises: why does Zhulin need another duet? Russian Championship and Grand Prix final silver medalists Elizaveta Shanaeva and Pavel Drozd spent last season with him. The duet created just last summer has progressed noticeably and can occupy leading positions. The transition to Zhulin was announced by Alexandra Stepanova and Ivan Bukin, who missed the season due to the decision of the partner. Yes, the team champions of the 2022 Olympics and silver medalists in individual competitions Victoria Sinitsina and Nikita Katsalapov have not announced their retirement.

Even if the ban on Russian skaters is lifted, it is almost impossible for them to return to international competitions. Attending the rally concert in Luzhniki in support of the CBO, the leaders of the ISU, in full compliance with the recommendations of the IOC, will see this as a reason to block the way for the strongest Russian dancers. Only no one forbids Sinitsina and Katsalapov to perform at all-Russian competitions.

Zhulin had never done so many powerful duets at the same time. Why does he need someone else to work with, to work with, to work with? And it is not a fact that this work will allow even the current champions of Russia to become the leader of the Zhulin group.

Even though there are no big risks for Khudaiberdiyeva and Bazin in such a transfer. Let’s not forget that their former mentor Samokhin is one of the most respected technical experts in ice dancing in Russia, but Petr Durnev, who helped Zhulin, has no less authority. In addition, Zhulin now has much more opportunities for his wards to organize performances at shows, and these opportunities are now very well paid.

Unexpectedly, Natalia Linichuk was nominated as a coaching option for Khudaiberdiyeva and Bazin. Exciting Russian figure skating fans with her appearance in the First Channel Cup, Natalya Vladimirovna went into the shadows. There is no information about whether he got a job in any of the schools of the capital or the Moscow region. Also, the last star in a duet Linichuk became the bronze medalist of the 2010 Olympics Oksana Domnina / Maxim Shabalin. After that she worked with payers in the US.

Yes, Linichuk, who for many years worked with Gennady Karponosov, dictated fashion in ice dancing. There are so many strong duet experiences in just one group. Unfortunately, only the stellar years of the 66-year-old specialist have passed. And now he does not have an assistant, like Karponosov, in the clip. It’s hard to wait for the coaching duet to reunite, in which ex-spouses organically complement each other following a high-profile divorce.

At one time, Domnina and Shabalin were sent to Linichuk and Karponosov by order of the then FFKKR President Valentin Piseev. Such a scenario should not be trusted today. The leaders of the Federation will only formalize and announce the transition. We’ll live until Monday. So far Linichuk’s phone is on silent and not responding to a request from RIA Novosti regarding a possible high-profile transfer. But too many comments! The transition, which has not yet been implemented, has already turned into a show.
