Daniil Gleikhengauz: Kamila has moved to senior skating, but not yet completely – unfortunately, we will not see her at the Grand Prix in Moscow, her age doesn’t allow. We’ll be sad.

We continue to work on the programs, especially on the free program – so that there are no misfires, as it happened at the Russian Cup in Moscow. Knock on wood, we like how she skates now. She trains every day, sometimes she does “three and a half plus three” (triple axel – triple toe loop), but it’s too early to say that we will insert this into the programs. But it is necessary to do it this season.

At the Moscow stage of the Russian Cup, Valieva made a number of mistakes in the free program, including two falls. Coming off the ice, the athlete pointed at the boot.

“Shoelaces? She also told us that. An athlete must always find a problem not in himself – this is a natural process,” Gleikhengauz said.

    Kamila Valieva is wonderful. She has so much character and beauty and skill. She is so extraordinary. Her poise and her athleticism are phenomenal. Be kind to yourself, Kamila! You are exceptionally awesome. Who you are deep down shines through your countenance. You are very young. Keep practicing. You are only 13 years old and you are performing with the greatest figure skaters in the world! Congratulations. You got to this point through tons and tons of very hard work. If you never win one single competition (and you will) you have proven how lovely and strong and disciplined and talented you are! Your heart screams champion. Everythging about you shouts winner and excellence–mostly in your heart of hearts. You can become as good as you decide to be. Truly exceptional in every way, Kamila. You are absolutely AMAZING.

    Poor Kamila, the pressure on her young shoulders is enormous. There isn’t much going on Danil’s head judging by these comments.

      They need a new star and a 100% claim for the Olympic gold. Probably they lost their believe in Anna Scsherbakova as team Tutberidze No1.
