Earlier, The Skating Lesson podcast on Twitter reported that Diana Davis/Gleb Smolkin will be screened at the United States Figure Skating Federation on Thursday, June 30.
– There are no other reasons why Eteri Tutberidze is delayed in the United States. It’s the right of the guys to play for another federation, for God’s sake let them play. They can show all their skills anywhere and remain ambassadors of Russian ideas, thoughts, our national team, our country.
What Eteri has done for our country suggests we shouldn’t doubt guys. We must be more democratic than everyone else. When our cards are all revealed, there is no better country than us on earth, better than Russia. I am absolutely calm about the guys’ decision to compete for another federation,” Laishev told The Championship.
Last season, Davis and Smolkin won the silver medal in the Russian championship, and at the Beijing Olympics the duo showed the 14th result. According to , the Russian couple, who are training in the United States, have suspended their work with coach Igor Shpilband and have not yet agreed to cooperate with a new mentor on a permanent basis.
