MOSCOW, 25 Jul – Russian figure skaters will win all the medals when they can return to international competitions, said Tatyana Tarasova, Honored Coach of the USSR.
The Council of the International Skating Union (ISU) on March 1, against the backdrop of events in Ukraine, suspended Russian and Belarusian figure skaters, speed skaters and short track skaters from participating in international tournaments. In June, the ISU Congress approved this decision, it will remain in effect until further notice.
“We were suspended a long time ago. But it never happened, never such hopelessness. They don’t hear anything. I don’t understand why these kids are removed from the competition. I wrote to them there. For what? win everyone, but they want the Russians to calm down a bit. When we are released, we will be like animals in general, we will take everything away, “Tarasova said during a conversation with coach Eteri Tutberidze at a pre-season training camp in Novogorsk, a video of which was published on the website of Channel One.
