Another Coaching Split!

Well another high profile skater has parted ways with his coach.

It's coming in from various sources (Dig Deep See Clear, Required Elements) that Daisuke Takahashi from Japan has split with coach Nikolai Morozov. Even more shocking, Morozov has taken on a new student, Takahashi's main national rival, Nobunari Oda!

Apparently Takahashi felt he was going to get the most attention leading up to the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver...guess not!

Another thing to note, it has been Morozov's choreographic genius that has produced some memorable programs from Daisuke over the past couple seasons (Phantom of the Opera, Cyberswan, Romeo and Juliet)...who will Daisuke get to choreograph his programs with the same intensity? Kurt Browning, Christopher Dean...are you available?

Wow. What drama. It's almost like a coach/skater love triangle, isn't it?

It's like an ice Telenovela!

The icenetwork article suggested that he left Morozov BECAUSE Morozov took on Oda.

Wonder what Morozov was thinking? He must have known it would cause some major drama to go down.
