Svetlana Veretennikova: “Tuktamisheva is a skater, coach and choreographer”
Its been a while since I've seen Tuk skatedSvetlana Veretennikova, one of the coaches of Elizaveta Tuktamisheva, told that it is easy to work with her student. She also shared plans for the next season.
“Lisa is a very capable, hardworking, musical and intelligent person. She’s also very judicious, despite her young age,” said Veretennikova to Krasnoe Znamya newspaper. “In my opinion, these are her main distinguishing qualities. She takes an active part in creation of her programs and can perfectly work in a team. She is a skater, coach and choreographer for herself. “ she continued.
“At the same time Elizaveta is a simple and interesting girl. It is easy to work with her, she knows what she wants from figure skating, sees the goal and is constantly busy with something: trainings, study, recreation and so on. She has a serious intention to achieve great victories.” coach noted.
“At the next season we will present an absolutely new program, in all respects. Skating judges didn’t include any skater in the number of potential “stars” with an old program, even with outstanding one. Of course, at the moment we can’t disclose the secrets of Liza’s new programs. I can only say that it will be something unexpected.” she added.
can't wait to see her and what programs she has next season
I hope she keeps working with Lambiel
Thanks for the article. It was very interesting. Hopefully unexpected is more than a Mishin skater not using a tango...
I'm also really excited to see her jump content next year. I know that she's working on getting the triple axel into her programs. Hopefully she can have consistency with it as replacing a double axel with a triple axel gives her 5 points in base tech value. Also I hope she can get her triple flip back as she missed it a few times during the season.

Thanks for the article. Good to know that Tuk is not afraid to try "the unexpected". Can't wait to see her new programs.
That she is an interesting girl, one can see it in her skating (:
The 3flip for some reason is a bother to a lot of Mishin students. At the open as a improvised jump did a 3S+3T and she can do 3lz+3T. The video of her 3A is pretty old now. It would be intersting to see it now. And when she skates again her ice coverage will be looked at.
Zhulin also said that in 1994 they were tired to train and just wanted to win the Olys and then quit.
U/Z's 'Blues for Klook' FD remains one of my favourite ice dancing performances of all time.
Men and I are like pianos - when they get upright, I feel grand!

I wonder what made Vaitchekhovskaya write that whole story in the first place
Give time for the MUD to settle down before the water becomes crystal clear
The Mud is settle and the news will be out by end of week
What is U/Z's relationship like now?
