Only in women’s single skating in Russia, you can jump the most difficult jump, which no one has previously been able to perform, and take second place. Adelia Petrosyan from “Khrustalny” took silver at the Russian Cup stage in Perm, performing a cascade of a quadruple rittberg and a double sheepskin coat. MK-Sport will tell and show how it was.
Records in the Eteri Tutberidze group are set by almost every figure skater. If earlier Anna Shcherbakova, Alexandra Trusova and Alena Kostornaya flew into space in terms of the number of ultra-si elements in the program and points for rentals, now the time has come for the younger generation of Khrustalny, for whom other tasks were found.
More recently, Kamila Valieva , who made her senior season debut with a convincing victory at Skate Canada , set a new bar for marks for free and for the amount of programs. Already today, another figure skater Tutberidze has gone down in history.
These days, the Russian Cup is being held in Perm, which was the main competition of the season a year ago due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now this tournament is a big test for young skaters who do not qualify for the Grand Prix by age, but inside the country they are doing what adults have never dreamed of.
Adelia Petrosyan, unexpectedly for many, lost the short program to Sofya Muravyova , by as much as 17 points! And this became the first sensation of the Russian Cup – the figure skaters of “Khrustalny” have never been so much inferior to the athletes of Evgeni Plushenko . During her work at Angels Plushenko, Muravyova learned the quadruple salchow and triple axel, which brought her victory at the end of the stage in Perm.
And even a crazy jump in an arbitrary program did not shorten the separation of Petrosyan from Muravyova. Just think: with a quadruple rittberger, Adelia could not win the Russian Cup in Perm. Meanwhile, Petrosyan became the first in the history of women’s skating who managed to perform this jump: a quadruple rittberger was in a cascade with a double sheepskin coat, but a single rittberger failed – a fall.
Before the gold of the stage, Petrosyan lacked a little more than three points. Muravyova, on the other hand, performed a triple axel in the free program, but fell from a quadruple salchow and a triple lutz.
