“We may not see Davis and Smolkin in the Russian championship in the future. It’s very sad.” – Bobrova

2014 Olympic champion in team figure skating Ekaterina Bobrova in a conversation with a correspondent, she suggested that the silver medalists of the championship of Russia last season in ice dancing Diana Davis and Gleb Smolkin may miss the next national championship.

Previously, Vasily Konov, deputy general producer of , announced on his Telegram channel that figure skaters Davis and Smolkin will not perform on the stage of the Russian Grand Prix in Moscow, which will be held on November 12-13. The couple is also announced for the sixth stage of the series, which will be held in Perm at the end of November.

– I can only assume that, most likely, the guys do not work due to problems with logistics. Of course, it’s a loss for the Moscow Grand Prix, because we can’t wait for this couple to see their programs. The guys haven’t played anywhere yet this season, we haven’t seen them at all, and it’s very interesting to watch them: the performances, what form they are in.

In addition, in any case, it will be necessary to qualify for the Russian Championship from the stages of the Grand Prix. It turns out that there are fewer and fewer steps left, and if they miss everything… I don’t know, maybe there will be exceptions in the future, but we might not see them. never to be in the Russian Championship. This, of course, is very sad. Our dances need to gain momentum right now, so that when we return to the international stage, we don’t lose our positions. And Diana and Gleb are one of the strongest Russian couples, who could fight for the highest places in the national championship and reach the top places on the international stage.

It’s hard to comment on something now, because we really don’t know the exact reason for the omission. However, I hope the guys will perform on stage in Perm, if they really want to. We will wait for them there,” Bobrova told .

The Russian Figure Skating Championship will be held from December 20 to 25 in Krasnoyarsk.
