Tarasova: “Do I expect a breakthrough from the Davis/Smolkin duo?  I would like to wait for a breakthrough from Russian couples when they are admitted.”

Honored coach of the USSR in figure skating Tatyana Tarasova told that she wanted to wait for a breakthrough from Russian couples to be admitted to international competitions.

Diane Davis And Gleb Smolkin showed the eighth result at the 2024 European Championships – 189.46 points. In June 2023, the Russian Figure Skating Federation approved the duo’s transfer to the Georgian national team.

— I’m not a fan of their free dancing. Technically they have grown, but they already took 7th place at the European Championships, now they are 8th, in fact it’s the same thing.

—Are you expecting a breakthrough from them?

— I would like to wait for a breakthrough from Russian couples when they are admitted. Davis/Smolkin are good guys, they have improved, they skate cleanly, but there are couples who skate better,” Tarasova told .

Davis is the daughter of a Russian coach Eteri Tutberidze her partner is the son of actor Boris Smolkin.

Russian figure skaters have been suspended from participating in competitions held under the auspices of the International Skating Union (ISU) due to the situation in Ukraine.
