“Perhaps I opened a big sport for him in terms of the work invested and overcoming yourself. Turns out he wasn’t ready for it.” Alisa Efimova about her partner Ruben Blommaert’s retirement and looking for a new partner
Figure skater Alisa Efimova told that she intends to continue her career after her partner’s retirement.
On Wednesday, March 29, the German figure skater, Ruben Blommaert, with whom Efimova has been performing since December 2021, announced his retirement.
Alisa Efimova: In short, indeed, referring to the words in Ruben’s post, all of his best results, which he is proud of, were achieved with me. Perhaps I opened a big sport for him in terms of the work invested and overcoming yourself.
Turns out he wasn’t ready for it. This is my point of view, and professionals who have read Ruben’s post will understand what I’m talking about. But on the other hand, it’s good that he understood this now and not just before the Olympics. As for me, I do not plan to finish. Several partners contacted me, and in the near future we will have tryouts.
At the 2023 World Championships in Saitama, Efimova and Blommaert, representing Germany, took tenth place.

Marina Zueva: “Without Papadakis/Cizron no one from the up-and-coming generation of dancers has yet shown themselves to be the best.”
Of some reason, Alisa reminds me of Ekaterina Gordeeva. Do not know why. Hoping she will find a cool and dedicated partner.
