Athletistic/ Figure Skating. Today, August 19, it became known that 15-year-old figure skater Daria Shiryaeva will play for the Canadian national team. World champion Maria Butyrskaya spoke about it.

– It cannot be ruled out that Shiryaeva left to be able to play in international tournaments, as the Russians are currently not allowed to do so. Unfortunately, some athletes in such a situation will be sent to other countries. People are looking for ways to get out of the predicament that the national figure skating finds itself in. Changing nationality is one of the options. With a new passport you get new opportunities,” RT quotes Butyrskaya as saying.
