Interview: Brian Orser, Coach at Toronto Cricket Club

Nina: So what's the most rewarding part of being a coach?

Brian: Just seeing it all come to fruition. There are some days when Tracy [Wilson] and I are out there and we've got all of these amazing athletes and it's just like a well-greased machine. All the parts are all moving smoothly and there's a nice harmony with the session. Everybody's got good energy and they're doing their things and we just stand back and we just watch it. And we go "Wow! This is good skating. We're really lucky." But you can't become complacent because as soon as that happens, the wheels fall off, so you have to keep it well-greased. And then there are days where it doesn't [work] and sometimes we just have to accept that too.

Episode 29: World Figure Skating Championships 2019 - Transcript

Yogeeta: Peng and Jin's short is probably my favourite Short Program from the pairs from the entire season, and the fact that they were a fully rotated triple Sal away from getting bronze just causes my anxiety.

Kat: Listen, Sals are cursed for the Chinese pair girls.

Kite: They're cursed for everybody as we will talk about.

Yogeeta: Sals are snakes, we don't like them, they don't go here.

Kat: Yeah, I know. Although, I sacrificed something to the sal gods for Wenjing landing that Sal in the free, because I was like…

Yogeeta: Yeah, you sacrificed Yuzuru's Sal!

Kite: We really got to be more specific next time.

Interview - Jason Brown at Toronto Cricket Club

Jason: Exactly. The fact that I left my costumes in Croatia and six weeks later realized. Like, had no idea, didn’t even while I was unpacking, didn’t think about it.

Kite: Do you think it affected your focus at all, going into Nationals?

Jason: No. I think at the beginning, it kind of freaked me out, just because I didn’t know what I was going to wear. But once I kind of had an outfit and practiced in something different, I felt more relaxed. It really wasn’t until I had a backup that I started to relax. And Tracy being so calm about the whole situation. [Kite: They’ve probably seen it before.] [Everyone Laughs] Yeah, they were like “Oh my God we’ve been through this with Javi, [Javier Fernández] [Kite and Gabb laugh.] Um, Jason, this is nothing,” and I was like “Okay.”

Interview - Tracy Wilson, Coach at Toronto Cricket Club

Tracy: I don’t know, I have no idea what my reputation is, but I’m pretty tough in terms of training because I think we’re so limited by what we think we can do. And, I literally, I mean, I commentated Rugby at the Olympics in Brazil in Rio, and I watched what those Rugby players deal with and how tired they get and they have to go and hit somebody and get hit. And I literally skated after Yuzu and said “Have you seen your Japanese Rugby team?” and he looked at me, and I said “Come on! You’re not going to be hit, and nobody's going to hit you! Come on, you’re not that tired.” [Laughter]

Episode 24: European Championships 2019 - Transcript

Evie: It was a really great send off for his career, as you said Kite, the choice to use these two programs this season; not only have those programs gotten him some of the biggest achievements in his career before but they are also so uniquely Spanish and they say so much about his as a skater.

Kat: In case we were wondering which country he was from...

Evie: (sarcastically) What?! Javi is Spanish? What?

Kat: This is completely new information.

Kite: Exactly.

Yogeeta: No one should be taking those lessons (laughter).
