Figure skaters Anna Shcherbakova and Alexandra Trusova are not included in the preliminary list of participants in the Russian Figure Skating Cup final. This was reported on February 18 by the press service of the Russian Figure Skating Federation (FFKKR).
12 athletes have entered the women’s single skating competition. A preliminary list of all participants is published on the FFKKR website.
The tournament will take place in the capital from February 27 to March 2. The championship is the stage of selection for the Russian national team for the World Championship in Stockholm.
Earlier it was reported that the music of Pyotr Tchaikovsky could be chosen instead of the national anthem for Russian figure skaters at the World Figure Skating Championships in Sweden.
Recall that the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) banned Russian athletes from performing at major tournaments under their own national anthem and flag until mid-December next year.
