“Good wine needs no bush” Mishin and Tuktamysheva about victory at Rostelecom Cup
Elizaveta Tuktamysheva and Alexei Mishin about victory at Rostelecom Cup.
Elizaveta Tuktamysheva: I haven’t won anything for a long time. I feel great. I was not nervous in the “kiss and cry” corner, I did everything I could. It was like dessert. I calmly waited. I’m shocked. I did not see how Alena (Kostornaia) skated, but I did not expect this (result).
Alexei Mishin: Praise Liza? Good wine needs no bush, write that. (Mishin used the Russian version of this saying “Buckwheat porridge needs no bush”.)
About the quad
Elizaveta Tuktamysheva: I’ve only recently started performing it, quite recently. I still need to practice it a little first before putting into the program.
And if you compare with last year, is it better now?
Elizaveta Tuktamysheva: At this time last year, I have not even jumped toe loop. So, if we compare, there is even a small progress. As for the feelings, I don’t even know yet. It seems that my jump has become more of a working version now.
Last season it was completely new to me and I did it either very well or very badly. I very rarely had attempts, when I did it unsuccessfully, but still pulled it out, saved it. So the jump was either perfect or completely failed.
Now I have a lot more “working” moments in this element. There’s some process of understanding of this jump in my head and this pleasant.

About training during lockdown
Elizaveta Tuktamysheva: We worked online with a choreographer, there was a fairly strong general physical training, thanks to which I was in a good shape after quarantine. But it was mentally difficult to resume the training regime to the extent that is needed to be at the peak. Over time, I forced myself, coped with it. The body gets used to it. Now the main thing is to hold out until the Russian Nationals, and then, I hope, there will be clarity about the second part of the season and how to speed up preparation there. I think everyone has found their pace now. At the Russian Nationals we will show you all!

Magnificent. Great to see Ms Tuktamysheva reaping the reward for all her hard work at reestablishing herself at the forefront of world skating.
So glad for her. Finally gold, well deserved!
Congratulations to Liza!!
