Honored trainer of the USSR in figure skating Tatiana Tarasova estimated future skaters Alexandra Trusova and Alyona Kostina after the departure of coach Eteri Tutberidze. Her words quoted by RT.
Tarasova thought that the upcoming season will be challenging for the athletes, as they have to prepare for the Olympic games in Beijing. “It’s a big responsibility, tougher competition. Neither Sasha, nor Alena their positions do not pass. I see Zhenya Plushenko is a strong desire to achieve results, and me as a coach, it’s very encouraging,” she added.
August 1, Director of the centre for sports and education “Sambo-70” Renat Laishev said about the hunt for students Tutberidze. In his opinion, the transitions athletes look good.
For the last three months the number of skaters from the band Tutberidze went to the Academy. In particular, European champion Alyona Kostina and two-time world Junior champion Alexander Trusov. In may of this year, there is the coach, Sergey Rozanov, who worked in the band Tutberidze from 2017 to 2020.
