Yekaterinburg-born Zaboev, 24, has been skating with Estonia’s Natalja Zabijako since October 2012 and the pair managed to qualify for the Olympics after taking ninth place at the Nebelhorn Trophy in Germany last month.
“I want to get Estonian citizenship not only to participate in Sochi, but to continue represent the country in the future,” Zaboev said on Estonian TV. “I want to represent Estonia and contribute to the development of figure skating in this country.”
The Estonian figure skating federation has already petitioned the government to fast-track Zaboev's application “for special merits,” and a final decision is expected by January 11.
