“I do not share the position of those who believe that figure skating has died without Russians,’ said Alexei Mishin
He also commented on 24-year-old Amber Glenn’s performance of a triple axel at the US Nationals.
“The girl (Glenn) is commendable for mastering the ultra-C element at her age. The execution of complex elements always affects other elements. I have encountered this several times when my students first learned the triple axel, and later, Elizaveta Tuktamysheva mastered it, and then the guys learned quadruple jumps, two quads, and so on,’ Mishin added.
Rinka Watanabe: “If I can’t master the quadruple jump this offseason, I might think of quitting skating. I have to feel it.”
