Athletistic / Figure skating. World and European figure skating champion Elizaveta Tuktamysheva denounced the fact that she was not included in the list for the 2022 Olympic Games in Tokyo (Japan).

“You said that girls dream of the Olympics from the age of 5-9. Maybe that was my problem, that I wasn’t like that deliberately: the Olympics are everything.

I started figure skating because I met girls who were figure skaters. I just wanted to hang out with them, I felt funny, I had fun, I said to myself: oh, new friends, I urgently need to go to the rink, I should see them more often.

And the Olympics… well, of course, maybe the first, the second… The first, perhaps, was offensive. It’s not offensive, but I understood from the start of the season that I wouldn’t go because I was in bad shape. Same with the second. With the third one, I was in good shape, but in fact there were three brilliant girls. So why be offended? Why not me ? I didn’t ask such a question at all, because I understood why not me. There the answer was obvious,” Tuktamysheva said on the SBG Show YouTube channel.
