Tuktamysheva explained why she decided not to include the quadruple sheepskin coat in the free program in the Czech Republic

Russian figure skater Elizaveta Tuktamysheva said she decided not to take any risks and not add a quadruple toe loop to the free program at the Russian Championships in Krasnoyarsk, but she plans to prepare an element for the 2023 tournaments .

Tuktamysheva takes second place after the short program at the Russian Championships, earning 82.98 points. Sofia Akatieva is in the lead (85.59).

– Will I make a quadruple sheepskin coat in the free program? No, I decided not to take the risk this year. And you just have to skate the free program like it was in the Grand Prix. Calmly. However, I hope that next year I will prepare for other tournaments … No less important, but at the Russian Championship it seemed inappropriate to me to take such a risk, ”Tuktamysheva told reporters.

The skater’s free program will be presented on Saturday.
