Elizaveta Tuktamysheva: 3-3 combination was planned, I did 3-2. I wanted to show the program beautifully and clean, so I did not risk it.
The program is the idea of Ilia Averbukh, he read my thoughts. I wanted a female dramatic artistic image, and he showed me this music. I liked it right away and we kept it.
About preparation for the Olympic season and competition for getting to the Games in Beijing.
