Kim Parts Ways With Orser, and In Other Coaching News... Wait, What Was That??

Some late-breaking stuff to report... one of which was surprising all by itself, the other is downright shocking, at least at first read.

The "shocking" is this: Kim Yu-Na has parted ways with Brian Orser, according to this Figure Skating Online article that was posted this evening. (HUH??? Yeah, I know.) The "surprising" is that U.S. Pairs Champs Denney & Barrett have parted ways with Jim Peterson, Lyndon Johnston and Alison Smith and are taking up with John Zimmerman and Silvia Fontana (otherwise known by me as the Most Beautiful Coaching Team In History). More about the Denney/Barrett switch here...

As for the Kim/Orser split... though it was apparently initiated by Kim's side, and Orser was informed of it back on August 2... news on this is still pretty limited. Stay tuned.
