That is utterly horrible. I would have been so offended by something like that — I would have gone ballistic. Russia is a very matriarchal country. England — the opposite, very male dominated country. God, I am so glad I don't live in Russia.

This is also a part of anti-Eteri stratedy some of her rivals and haters follow.
To make long story short, they claim she is starving her students and makes them overtrained to prevent them from growing tall.

I think it is bullshit. Yes, her training program is very similar to balerinas training programs (diet+hard work), but her aim is success, not preventing girls from growing tall

To be honest, male coaches can say somthing even more rude
But it depends on the person.

Here men are gents, really gents — well — if they have to deliver a bad message they will go out of their way to «cushion» it, men are great in Britain, most American Hollywood stars and that — marry British men, they are very special men. I spent a year in the States when I was younger — at the University of Texas, Austin— and all the girls there were dreaming of marrying a Brit.

It is not a secret that ЦСКА (central sports army club) is probably most influential sports club in Russia. I was training in ЦСКА and their rules
and atmosphere are partly similar to Russian army. I think it also played its role in rude behaviour.
But it depends on mentatily. Athletes don't think that their coaches are rude, they are ok with that.

Btw, thanks for confirming that english-speaking fans were saying. They too told me they could gone mad if their coach behaves like that.
I was thinking they could be joking and playing fool with me.

P.S. fitness coaches are all smiles and very nice, they are completely different from coaches who train professional athletes.

Jesus, that must have been awful. I feel so sorry for you for having to have had such horrific experiences in your life. I mean it. Just leave there, it is a horrific country — in terms of mentality and attitudes.

Medvedeva's music choice for next season:

short program — Orange Colored Sky by Natalie Cole


freeskate program 1st part — Mumuki by Yo Yo MA


freeskate program 2nd part — Libertango by Yo Yo Ma


Very interesting choice for figure skating programs (as usual ^^).
Her new choreographer is David Willson

Actually, I don't have any bad memories about that period of my life. Nobody took it seriously among the players of my team. May be it's because we were teens I don't know.

Is Theresa May the least trusted PM ever? Only 26% think she will negotiate a good Brexit deal

A poll in May 2017 showed 47 per cent of the population trusted May to do her best negotiating Brexit. With her Chequers plan, also referred to as #BrexitBetrayal and #BrexitNotBrexit, we see the backlash as that number has plunged to only 26 per cent.

The solution clearly isn’t Jeremy Corbyn, however, his backing was a mere 18 per cent when it comes to Brexit.

«We've seen those who trust neither May nor Corbyn to negotiate a good Brexit deal jump from 31% in January to 44% in this poll», said ICM’s Alex Turk.

I don’t know — I just addressed your question to my work colleagues and the answer was «Quite possibly. She can’t negotiate a piss up in a brewery» (piss up is Brit slang for the act of getting drunk).
On a serious note, no one knows what is going to happen.
Look at this

Theresa May has urged voters not to worry about Brexit, despite her government setting out plans to stockpile food, blood and medicine in case it goes badly.

https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.independent.c...

People are angry here both with May and the EU here for the lack of progress in negotiations.

Some French minister today was urging the UK to stay in the EU. They don’t want to let us go so will continue to stall the talks it seems.
