Russian skater Polina Tzurskaya commented on the departure of Russian coach Eteri Tutberidze's team in May 2018. Her words were heard on the TV channel "Rain".
The 17-year-old athlete stressed that the termination of cooperation with a specialist was in no way related to the departure of another Russian woman, Evgenia Medvedeva. Tsurskaya motivated his decision because Tubberidze had a lot of competition in the classroom. "I have lost faith in myself. There are a lot of strong girls in the group who are learning new leaps and are making progress, "she said.
The Russian admitted that she was not satisfied with the departure of Tutberidze. "It was probably not very beautiful: I did not go up, I do not thank, I did not give myself flowers," added Tsurskaya.
On May 31, Tsurskaya said he was leaving the sport. A year earlier, she left the Tutberidze group after collaborating with the coach to stop Medvedev. She went to Canada, where she continued to train under the guidance of a local specialist, Brian Orser.
Tsurskaya has become the winner of the Youth Olympic Games, the final of the junior Grand Prix. In addition, Tsurskaya won the Russian Cup final three times.
