New Figure Skating Star Wins at Skate Canada
Elizaveta Tuktamysheva

Russian 14-year-old figure skater Elizaveta Tuktamysheva has won the ladies' competition at Skate Canada, which was her debut Grand Prix appearance.

      Tuktamysheva won the short program with 59,57 points, made the second result in the free skate (117,81 points), but that was enough to secure her lead with 177.38 overall points.

      The silver went to Akiko Suzuki (172.26) of Japan, who is 12 years older than Tuktamysheva, while American Ashley Wagner finished third (165.48 points).

      The little Russian star said she “didn't feel a big difference” stepping up from junior to senior ranks." "I just try to do my job," she added. Elizaveta dedicated her triumph to her father.

      She also said her contestants hadn't taken her seriously at the beginning of the Championship. But after her first win in the short program their attitude changed.

      "I'm trying not to show everything that is inside," Tuktamysheva said. "Even if I'm nervous, I try to hide it. I try to approach everything calmly. There is pressure but I try not to pay attention to that too much.”

      In December 2010 Elizaveta Tuktamysheva became a bronze winner of Russia's Figure Skating Championships. In 2011 she won a siver medal at the World Junior Figure Skating Championships. Unfortunately, she Elizaveta wasn't able to take part in the World and Euro Figure skating Championships because of age requirement. But now she has now become one of Russia’s greatest hopefuls for the home Olympics in Sochi 2014.
