Figure skater Kim Yu-na has parted ways with Brian Orser, who coached her to Olympic and World Championship gold medals (Korea Times, Yonhap).

In a press release, IMG said Kim’s mother, Park Mee-hee, and Kim’s South Korean agency AT Sports informed Orser on Aug. 2 that “he would no longer be retained to coach Kim.”

“No reason was given for the sudden and unexpected decision,” the statement read. “At the present time Kim continues to train at the Cricket Club in Toronto, Canada.”

The statement quoted Orser as saying, “I am honored to have worked with such a talented and gifted skater. I wish her all the best as she moves forward in her skating career.”

  1. Wow. If Orser hooks up with Mao Asada, we could have some interesting future rivalries.
