— Have you watched the skating tests of the Russian national team? Who impressed?

— First of all, Sasha Stepanova and Vanya Bukin are renewed after their return.

Among the boys, I love the work of Matvey Vetlugin. He is very creative, musical, flexible!

I always liked Liza Tuktamysheva among the girls. Last year I went to the Russian Cup final and watched his short program live. I saw the audience’s reaction, how it penetrated everyone’s soul. The other girls were just clapping, but when Lisa came on the ice, the energy was completely different.

— What do you think about Alexandra Boykova and Dmitry Kozlovsky transformed after joining Eteri Tutberidze’s group?

– The two new programs are great – they seem like a second wind of sorts. It seems to me that Sasha and Dima wanted to show everyone that they had grown up. When testing the skates, they were up.

— Which couple, according to you, will become leaders in the new season?

– I think of Nastya [Мишина] with Sacha [Галлямовым] and Sacha [Бойкова] with Dima [Козловским] will continue to compete with each other for leadership. And the couples formed in recent seasons are catching up. Karine [Акопова] with Nikita [Рахманиным] Well done overall! They came back from injury, managed to prepare new programs, and they turned out so cool! “I really support Karina and Nikita,” Akhantieva told .

Akhantieva, along with her former partner Valery Kolesov, is the 2020 World Junior Championships silver medalist, the 2020 Russian Junior Championships silver medalist, and the 2019/20 Junior Grand Prix Final bronze medalist.
