The Canton Drama - Act III

Figure Skating From The Boards
Skate Canada confirmed today on Twitter that Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir will continue to be coached by Marina Zoueva at the Arctic Club of Canton.

A Twitter user asked the federation: "Any news about V-M coaching? They stay with Marina Zoueva?" Skate Canada replied: "yes, they are still with Marina."

And so we come to Act III of the Canton Drama who has seen the Arctic Club of Canton gave the boot to Igor Shpilband in Act I and Davis and White and the Shibutanis's decision to continue training under Zoueva in Act II.

The question now is where we go from here.

Skate Canada has officially confirmed that Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir plan to continue training in Canton and that Marina Zoueva will be their main coach.

When they returned from vacation, Moir commented that Shpilband and Zoueva's “coaching partnership provided an enjoyable and productive training environment and together we experienced great success on the ice. We were obviously disappointed to receive the news that our coaching team of Marina and Igor will no longer be working together.”

According to Virtue, “it was an honour to work with him (Shpilban) every day, and we respect his dance knowledge and technical expertise. We are very grateful to him for everything he has helped us achieve.”
