    Elizaveta Tuktamysheva prepares for next season - Part 2

    On account of a hectic schedule, Tuktamysheva and her coaches decided to finish her season after the Youth Olympics and prepare for next season. Here are some videos from some recent exhibitions/performances:-

    Elizaveta Tuktamysheva 10.3.12

    Elizaveta Tuktamysheva - Davos Exhibition - 11.2.12

    Looking at the videos, looks like Liza is now really focusing on upgrading her artistry in readiness for next season. For somebody who was entering the senior GP for only the first time last Autumn, her presentation, artistry, musicality, etc, was already pretty good. But if she can successfully enhance it even further over the next 4-6 months, to go with her technical ability, then she is going to be difficult to beat. I think it was a very good idea simply to stop after the Youth Olympics and focus on properly preparing for next season
    This is a continuation of the previous thread which has now been archived. The above quote is from the first post of the previous thread.

    Liza recently appeared at the Believe Charity Gala on the 1st May 2012, where she performed a new exhibition program called "Island Blues":-

    Elizaveta Tuktamysheva - Island Blues - 1.5.12

    Looking at the new exhibition program, it's great to see that Liza is continuing to work on upgrading her artistry. Her GP assignments for next season are Skate Canada and the Trophee Eric Bompard, and its looking very promising for her for next season.

    Here are some photos of Liza from the Believe Charity Gala

    I'm a Liza fan and was struck by how much looks different without the jumps. It is hard to see the gala skate video where she is wearing shorts. I never like how they package her. She is tiny so 5 pounds or the appearance of changes her look which is important. I never saw her with hair down-different color? I hope she does not change up her look totally every season or program a la leonova who is currently harsh looking.

    Well, Liza with consistent jumps is a force and I think she could be golden in Sochi. But now I am feling that with Ashley and a consistent Gracie, we should have one podium spot. I have to say I enjoy her, but Russian ladies are so deep. The leader come Sochi could be one of 4 girls.

    Between the Japanese and Russian ladies, I hope we have a skater on the podium next worlds and in Sochi. Wagner I like better than Liza for many reasons, and I have yet to see Gold on Senior circuit, like all. So she is an unknown to me. Politics/corruption will be very hard for the judges to overcome. She is special and so talented. Polina K is someone I like a lot but she is growing still. Maybe these girls are going to peak in 2018. Gee I just wish the new season would start up. So boring without a competition to watch and discuss!

    I see that her layback is an inch better.

    I really like Liza. I hope she can improve her skating skills over the summer—and just don't gain any more weight.

    Her weight is perfectly fine

    I'd say it's much improved. She used to just cock her head to the side. Now she actually bends her back.
