Gabriella Papadakis: I admit that the absence of Russians at the World Championships is something special. They lost a lot of trust from other skaters because of the situation in Ukraine and doping. They are given the stink eye, and there is less tension without them.
Right now we are planning to just relax. We don’t know if we want to end our career. This is a big decision, we don’t want to make it too fast and make the wrong choice.
