    Ekaterina Kurakova

    Ekaterina Andryevna Kurakova (Russian: Екатерина Андреевна Куракова) is a ladies' single skater who represents Poland.

    She was born on 24 June 2002 in Russia.

    Until the end of 2017/18 season she represented Russia. Then she decided to switch the countries and starting from 2018/19 season, she represents Poland. She did so because "she felt there was no place for her in Russia."

    She is the 2019 CS Warsaw Cup champion, the 2019 Mentor Toruń Cup champion, a two-time Four Nationals champion (2019–2020), and a two-time Polish national champion (2019–2020).

    She is coached in Toronto, Canada by Brian Orser, E. Pryhitka, Karen Preston, and Tracy Wilson. In Poland, she represents the Axel Club from Toruń.

    Original post by The Finn

    She was really great today at the 3rd stage of Russian Cup and so was her total score of 195.04 points. Many times that is more than enough to win most senior events but this time it wasn't enough to win a junior event because Anna Shcherbakova scored a half a point or so more but that doesn't matter here.

    very nice improvement after having small jumps and under rotations last season, she is very much improved....
    hoping next season Kurakova gets a JGP assignments.

    her flexed legs and skating skills remind me of Kanako Murakami

    Although she only placed 9th this weekend, I thought she was one of the more interesting girls to watch. I really hope she won't get lost in the sea of talented Russian skaters.

    And I just love her dress that she wore to the opening ceremony!

    Russian Cup Final. She did great even though she was only 5th. She was only about 2 points behind Trusova who was 3rd and I honestly feel Katia should have been a bit higher than 5th. Anyway, I really liked her both programs, especially her FS.

    Preliminary entry lists of Nationals Elder Age have been published. Obviously no one expected that Kurakova's name would be there at this early because she didn't take part to the Moscow Qualification event but it will be interesting to see if Russian Fed will add her name to the final entry list. I don't know why she didn't skate at the Moscow qualification event, maybe she was sick, or maybe she was injured. Maybe she still is, I haven't seen any info about that. Anyway, since so many girls are fighting for the last few JGP spots it would be highly beneficial for her if she would be allowed to skate at the Nationals Elder Age. Hopefully she is fit to skate and Russian Fed gives her a chance to impress one more time.

    Ivan Righini is choreographing her programs?

    I hope she can break through next season...she stands out amidst a lot of girls who are rather interchangeable, in my eyes...

    Her placement at the Junior Nationals was somewhat decent but because Shcherbakova wasn't there and also because some of the ladies who finished behind her at the Junior Nationals have done great since Junior Nationals it kind of seems unlikely that she would get JGP assignment. She still might of course, if she is really impressive at the test skate event. Having 3A would surely make a difference.

    It's nice to see that Katya is progressing.

    We also should add that she is two times Champion of Torun. She won this event two times in a row, but it was with diffirent sponsors. First time it was Nestle Nesquik Cup, this time Mentor Cup.

    Her FS at her Nestle Nesquik Cup. It was at this tournament that I learned about her the first time. Now we can compare difference in her skating skills and StSq. She also fixed her UR. I'd say that much work has been done.

    Keep going, little cutie
