She noted that now trying to perform a quadruple in a competition would be a gamble.
“The jump is not quite ready yet. And if you fail to perform the first element, then it is already quite difficult to cope with other jumps, to go on a triple axel. Not easy. Of course, for some period last year she did the quad quite consistently, the percentage of successful attempts in training was very high, and we included the jump in the program. And now we didn’t have such a task, especially since the season was not easy, ”the coach added.
24-year-old Tuktamysheva won silver at the World Championships in Stockholm, scoring 220.46 points after two rentals – 78.86 for the short program and 141.60 for the free program.
Earlier, Alexei Mishin said that Tuktamysheva is the “Statue of Liberty” for figure skaters who are over 20 years old.
