Tarasova: I do not understand Trusova’s decision to leave Tutberidze to Sokolovskaya

MOSCOW, October 1 – RIA Novosti, Svetlana Bonopartova. Honored coach of the USSR in figure skating Tatyana Tarasova told RIA Novosti that she did not understand the decision of Russian figure skater Alexandra Trusova to leave coach Eteri Tutberidze.

On Saturday, a source told RIA Novosti that the silver medalist of the 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing had passed from Trusova’s coach Tutberidze to Svetlana Sokolovskaya. The reasons for the transfer of the 18-year-old athlete are unknown. At the end of September, he performed on the test skates of the Russian national team, representing the Tutberidze group. Figure skater Mark Kondratyuk, who has a close relationship with Trusova, trains in the Sokolovskaya group.

“I don’t understand this decision. (Mark) went where Kondratyuk was. After Tutberidze, Sokolovskaya will not help him,” Tarasova said.

Trusova trained with Tutberidze throughout her youth and most of her adult career. In the 2020/21 season, she studied at the academy of the two-time Olympic champion Evgeni Plushenko, after which she decided to return to Tutberidze. Trusova’s assets, in addition to the silver of the Olympics, are also the two golds of the junior world championships and the bronze of the adult world and European championships. Trusova is the first figure skater in history to do five quads in a program.
