Watching Russian girls on the ice in the corner of your eye?
Scott Moir: Oh, of course! Who is not watching?! It’s interesting to watch their progress.
I don’t watch single skating that much, and even less women’s single skating, but Russian girls are power. How do they do that?
Now everyone will start teasing me, because I dared to name my favorite, but I just adore Elizaveta Tuktamysheva.
We performed together a little in the show, so we got to know each other better, I found out what an incredible person she is. She is an example for so many athletes!
So persistent, never discouraged, just doing her job. It seems that in Russia new girl appear every week and there are so many of them! But Elizabeth is holding on, moreover – improving!
As an athlete, I respect it very much.
