Summer student Kiira Korpi melted professor Mishin

Aleksei Mishin is perhaps the most well known figure skating coach in the world, and nobody wants to be the target of his glance after a failed performance.
– She’s gifted and good mannered. She’s a person with good soul and she wakes up my man in me, Mishin babbles about Korpi.

Kiira Korpi is spending three weeks this summer under the guidance of Mishin in Tartu. A 25 minute session under the eyes of Mishin costs 75 euros, but skaters around the world swear that every minute is worth it. Mishin has turned the teaching of triple and quad jumps into a science. He has studied biomechanics and the techical details of the jumps for years. Kiira notes that that the benefits Mishin can give are the small details his trained eye can pick up from every execution.
– He concentrates on one thing at a time, Korpi says.

Mishin doesn’t demand huge leaps forward from his stundents. Important is that the movement is steady and goes forward. Work has to be taken seriously and it must be done right, or then don’t do it at all. On thursday Mishin didn’t let Korpi off the ice because she couldn’t find enough height to the jumps, so she continued practicing along with the zamboni resurfacing the ice.

Last summer Mishin and Korpi started a slow but impressive project, the triple axel.
– First we just planned to see how the landing feels, but Kiira was talented and soon we were trying the jump itself, Mishin says.
In Tartu the duo is not going to continue with the jump because Korpi has been sick, so making the history has to wait.

A well started training camp took a nasty twist at the end of the first week when a bad abdominal pain stroke the skater.
– Sadly it spoiled several training days, but better this than a broken leg, Kiira said.
She was able to return on the ice on tuesday after four days and several visits to the health center.
– Legs are still spaghetti, but the appetite is back, Kiira says.

Before getting sick Korpi created a step-sequence for the new short program with Russian Aleksei Vasilevski. Also training in Tartu with Kiira are her clubmate Niina Laksola from Tappara and Laura Lepistö and Jenni Vähämaa from the Finnish A-team.

その記事からの引用

ミーシン教授を感動させた夏季講習生、キーラ・コルピ


アレクセイ・ミーシン
は、おそらく世界で一番有名なフィギュアスケートのコーチである。演技が失敗した後、彼が鋭いまなざしを向ける標的になりたい者など誰もいない。
「彼女は才能に恵まれ、行儀もよく、精神力もある。彼女は、私の中の男らしさを呼び起こすんだ」ミーシンはコルピに沸き立つ。

キーラ・コルピはこの夏、ミーシンの指導の下、タルトゥで3週間を過ごしている。ミーシンに25分の練習を見てもらうと75ユーロもかかるが(注:1ユーロ160円として、12,000円)、世界中のスケート選手たちはその一瞬一瞬に価値があると断言する。ミーシンは3回転や4回転ジャンプを科学的に教えるようになってきている。彼は生体力学とジャンプの技術的なディテールを何年も研究し続けているのだ。ミーシンがもたらしてくれるのは、すべての演技において、彼の鍛えられた目だからこそ見抜けるわずかなディテールだとキーラは指摘する。
「彼はその都度ひとつのことに集中するの」とコルピは話す。

ミーシンは、教え子に対して大きな飛躍を要求しない。重要なのは、その進展が確かで、前向きであることだ。訓練は真剣に行なわれなくてはならず、正しく行なわれないと何の意味もない。木曜日、ミーシンはコルピを氷から降りさせなかった。ジャンプの高さが十分ではなかったからで、彼女はザンボニーが整氷を行なう間も練習を続けた。

昨夏、ミーシンとコルピはゆっくりとした、しかし印象的なプロジェクトを始めた。トリプルアクセルだ。
「最初、私たちは着地する感覚がどのようなものかを理解しようとしていただけでした。しかし、キーラには才能があり、すぐに私たちはジャンプそのものに挑戦し始めました」とミーシンは言う。
タルトゥで二人は、トリプルアクセルへの挑戦を続けていない。コルピが病気だったからだ。歴史が作られるのはもう少し先になりそうだ。

順調に始まった合宿だったが、最初の週の終わりに猛烈な腹痛がこの選手を襲ったとき、ひどい捻挫をしてしまった。
「悲しいことに、練習が数日できなくなりました。でも、脚を折らなくてよかった」キーラは言った。
何回かヘルスセンターに通い、4日後の火曜日に彼女は氷上に戻ることができた。
「脚はまだこんがらがってるけど、食欲は戻りました」とキーラは言う。

病気になる前、コルピは新しいショートプログラム用のステップシークエンスをロシア人のアレクセイ・ヴァシレフスキーと創った。キーラと一緒にタルトゥでトレーニングしているのは、同じタッパラのクラブメイトであるニーナ・ラクソラとローラ・レピスト、 そしてフィンランドAチームのイェンニ・ヴァハマーだ。
