“To say that we won’t notice their absence is an insult. To say that we’ll notice … Why won’t they participate then?” Tarasova and Kogan about the participation of Diana Davis and Gleb Smolkin in the Russian Nationals
Director General of the Russian Figure Skating Federation (FFKR) Alexander Kogan and Tatiana Tarasova spoke about the participation of Diana Davis and Gleb Smolkin in the Russian Nationals.
The ice dance team missed the stages of the Russian Grand Prix.
Given that Diana Davis and Gleb Smolkin are missing the Russian Grand Prix in Perm, is it possible that we will not see them at the Russian Nationals?
Alexander Kogan: Those skaters who qualified at the Russian Grand Prix will participate in the Russian Nationals. In addition, we have six members of the national team.
If there are any objective reasons why the guys could not take part in two or one of the stages, the executive committee and the coaching council will decide. Let’s see. Now there is Nothing to talk about.
Let’s get to the Nationals. We have a few more events. You are discussing something that there is nothing to discuss yet.
Tatiana Tarasova: Aren’t they going to come for the Russian Nationals? I do not know that.
To say that we will not notice their absence is an insult. To say that we will notice … Why won’t they participate then?
Personally, I am sure that it is necessary to participate at the Russian Nationals. The national championships is the biggest competition for us! Always have been and will be.
