Comparison?

As the news came out this week that Caroline Zhang changed coaches to Peter Oppegard who is now coaching YuNa Kim. Her frequent changing coaches “Since entering the senior ranks Zhang has changed coaches from MingZhu Li, to Charline Wong, Back to Li, to Tammy Gambill and now to Oppegard” (Caroline Zhang changed coache”>Source), it reminds me of another similar elegant (at one time) skater, Nicole Bobek. Now, granted she’s not up to Nicole’s number (She changed coaches at least 11 times during her competitive skating career, including Debbie Stoery, Carlo Fassi, Kathy Casey, Hoon Kim, Richard Callaghan, Barbara Roles, Frank Carroll, Robin Cousins, and Mary and Evy Scotvold, Christa Fossi. Source). I wonder what this coaching change will bring for Caroline. Peter will no doubt be extremely busy coaching Kim…

  1. Caroline is past her prime. I think it is to late.
