Elizaveta: I would have to go to the show in Japan. I was waiting for this so much… The show is grandiose, and there are many of my friends there. By the way, Russian figure skaters are incredibly popular in Japan. How did it happen?

Figure skating Grand Prix Series will be held as ‘domestic’ competitions
Despite an edge call on the triple Lutz in her jump combination, Shcherbakova scored Miyahara was called for under-rotations on the triple toe of her triple Lutz, triple toe combination as well as her solo triple loop. A late addition to the field, American Amber Glenn , sits third with

She is the World champion , the European champion, the —15 Grand Prix Final champion, a time medalist on the Grand Prix series, and the Russian national champion. At the World Championships , she became the first female skater to land four triple jumps in a short program triple Axel, triple lutz, and a triple toe-triple toe combination. She therefore also became the first woman to land the maximum twelve triple jumps in one international competition, albeit with the triple Axel in her short program deemed under-rotated. Tuktamysheva is currently the 11th highest ranked ladies' singles skater in world by the International Skating Union following the figure skating season. Tuktamysheva started skating at the age of four, after meeting girls interested in the sport at a summer camp. Alexei Mishin observed Tuktamysheva at a competition in Belgorod but did not invite her into his group, considering her technique too incomplete.
Figure skating is moving fast, and World champion Elizaveta Tuktamysheva is banking on an extra half-rotation to compete with a technical revolution led by quad-jumping countrywomen. Otherwise, I should stop skating. Five times a champion on the Grand Prix circuit — including at the Grand Prix Final — Tuktamysheva rallied from a solid short program but disappointing score of Though the year-old cleanly landed three of her signature triple Axels last weekend — including one in combination with a double toe loop in the free skate — she was nonetheless technically outgunned by Shcherbakova who, in her senior Grand Prix debut, became the first woman to land two quadruple Lutzes in international competition. Besides Shcherbakova, Tuktamysheva must contend with Olympic champion Alina Zagitova , two-time world champion and Olympic silver medalist Yevgenia Medvedeva , reigning European champion and fellow Alexei Mishin pupil Sofia Samodurova , junior Grand Prix Final champion Alena Kostornaia — who attempted two triple Axels landing one fully rotated to win the Finlandia Trophy, and two-time world junior champion Alexandra Trusova , who landed four quadruple jumps at the free skate-only Japan Open on Oct. At an age where many skaters scale back their technical arsenals, Tuktamysheva continues to innovate, experimenting with a triple flip-triple toe loop short program combination while committing to three triple Axels at every competition. Since beginning her season at the Russian Senior Test Skates — a veritable mini-Olympics featuring all eight women set to compete on the Grand Prix series — she has cleanly landed an impressive 12 of 14 triple Axels in competition. I heard the new version and thought it was percent better. This is the final part to the program, and this time, I feel much more power and happiness as I finish it.
