“We received documents from the Figure Skating Federation of St. Petersburg on the transition of figure skater Mikhail Kolyada to coach Alexei Mishin, the federation does not mind the transition,” RIA Novosti quoted Gorshkov as saying.

Kolyada is the bronze medalist of the 2018 World Cup. Last season, Kolyada missed due to exacerbation of sinusitis. Before that, since the age of five, he had been working under the direction of Valentina Chebotaryova.

Earlier, Tatyana Tarasova expressed the opinion that Eteri Tutberidze deserved the title of the best coach of the season.
