Russian figure skater Anna Shcherbakova told why she performed only a quadruple flip in the free program at the World Championships in Stockholm.
According to her, the coaches looked at the workout and agreed with it. As a result, a variant with two quadruple flips was planned.
“And the fact that the quad will be alone … This is already my impromptu during the performance. At that moment I realized that now it will be better. In advance, I said to myself the option that if I fall from the first, then I go to the second, but during the skating I realized that it would be more correct and more reliable to perform with the second triple instead of the quadruple, ”said Shcherbakova.
17-year-old Shcherbakova became the world champion in women’s skating, gaining 233.17 points on the sum of two programs. The second place was taken by Elizaveta Tuktamysheva, and the third – by Alexandra Trusova.
Earlier it was reported that Shcherbakova will take part in the team World Figure Skating Championships in Japan.
