Her strength is the fact that she grew up in a slightly different realm
At 26, Tuktamysheva continues to compete on equal terms with younger skaters.
Katharina Gerboldt said what she thinks of Elizaveta Tuktamysheva, who continues to compete as an adult for a figure skater.
"It's more a question for her and her coach. But perhaps her strength lies in the fact that she grew up in a slightly different reality, a quieter one. She grew up among people like me and we didn't have the kind of race for the elements that's being done now. We couldn't even think about that," she said.
Gerboldt also said she didn't know if Tuktamysheva would add the quad jump to her programs, despite successfully landing it in training.
