25-year-old Tuktamysheva is the only figure skater of the Russian national team over 18 years old. This season is her 16th competitive season in her career.

Alexei Urmanov: We don’t talk much about Liza Tuktamysheva. But if we look and think, then she is a professional of the highest level. Liza has gone through everything: transitional age, major competitions, etc. She is the most experienced skater in our team, which is great! Because to finish with the sport at the age of 18 … Probably it’s too early. It turns out that the athlete has not yet “smelled real gunpowder”. I want to wish young girls to prolong their sports career.

Hats off to Liza. On the ice, she enjoys, gives us a holiday. Yes, sometimes, something doesn’t work out for her, but there is always intrigue in Tuktamysheva’s performances. And at 26, she remains one of the leaders of the national team.
