Translation of an article printed in the Russian language publication on June 24 2008

Tatiana Tarasova, famous coach in figure skating, former coach of Olympic Champion Aleksey Yagudin, will become the new coach of Mao Asada. Tarasova was a consultant to Asada prior to the last World’s Championship, which Ms. Asada won. That was the reason why now the 17 year old sportswoman decided to have Tarasova coach her full time.

“She worked with many great figure skaters and I am sure that I will learn a lot from her. She has prepared a new program for the next year especially for me,” said Asada.

Asada is planning to compete for the gold in the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. Despite the change in coaches, Ms. Asada will practice in Japan. She plans to come over from time to time to Moscow and Ms. Tarasova will sometimes fly to Japan.

Prior to 2006 Olympics, Tarasova was working as a consultant for another Japanese figure skater, Ms. Shizuka Arokawa, who became the Olympic Champion. At the same Olympics another pupil of Tarasova's, Sasha Cohen, became the silver medalist.
