Earlier, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) recommended that the federations should allow the Russians to the competitions subject to strict criteria.

Elizaveta Tuktamysheva: I stopped following the IOC criteria. For now, it’s necessary to skate in the show and live here and now for some time. But this is not a loss of hope.

I am satisfied with the organization and the number of competitions that we had. Whether they were able to replace the international ones, I don’t know, but it was interesting, there were cool, good emotions.

I realized a long time ago that we will not go to the main competitions, I accepted this and keep the focus on what I can influence.

The main result of the season is top-3 at the Russian Nationals, I am very glad that I was finally able to get into it. That’s an important event for me.
