Coach Evgeny Plushenko spoke about the readiness of Sofia Muravyeva’s jumps.
“Sofia is simply not ready yet,” Plushenko said, answering the question why Muravyova did not perform two triple Axels in the free program. “She already stepped on this rake at the Russian Grand Prix stage in Moscow. She did not listen to the coaches – and did everything in her own way. The risk did not pay off. Now Muravyova is already an experienced athlete who learns from her mistakes and listens to advice. Moreover, I also try to listen to athletes.”
“Sofia performed the technical content that we planned,” Plushenko noted. “For her, the most important thing was to jump the triple Axel in both the short and free program. She restored this most difficult jump and performed it perfectly in warm-ups. Of course, there is something to work on “We will work on quadruple jumps: restore the Salchow, learn the sheepskin coat. These are plans for the end of this season. Plus, two triple Axels in the free program.” – said Plushenko
