Here’s a translation of Eteri Tutberidze’s comment described Shcherbakova’s victory over Kostornaia and Trusova as “revenge” made in a interview with Leonid Slutsky.

Q: For me, it was an incredible story: a trio that, as it seemed to me at the time, was preparing for the Olympics – Kostornaia, Shcherbakova, Trusova. They finish the season: Kostornaia wins everything, Trusova jumps everything possible. And then two of the three leave.

Eteri Tutberidze: Moreover, I was already thinking about who would skate the short program if they were on the Olympic team. I knew that Kostornaia would skate the short program because she has a triple axel, which makes her skating a bit different from the others.

Q: It was such a nerve-wracking experience for you – a challenge, a season that becomes Shcherbakova’s season. She wins everything, surpasses both Kostornaia and Trusova, something she hadn’t done in the senior level before. The other two come back a year later, realizing that they might not just win anything at the Olympics…

Eteri Tutberidze: Wait, by this time, Valieva is starting to emerge.

Q: Of course! There’s always someone emerging in your field.

Eteri Tutberidze: Well, not always.

Q: Even now, you have Bazyluk emerging in a way that’s surprising. How can this happen when they criticize? With one person, they perform this way, become superstars, and fall apart a year later, while the one who stays with the Tutberidze coaching staff gets better. Moreover, she later wins the Olympics. I understand that Valieva’s story is unique, but still. Did you celebrate inside?

Eteri Tutberidze: Oh no, well, you don’t celebrate anything.

Q: I can’t believe that you weren’t upset. And when Shcherbakova defeated Kostornaia and Trusova, when they were with Plushenko, it was something special.

Eteri Tutberidze: For me, it was revenge. It’s the best dishes you can serve,” said Eteri Tutberidze on “Komment.Trener” with Leonid Slutsky.”
