I saw this announcemnt on @olympicchannel on instagram. Was she seriously training for a comeback this year? Also, Tatiana Tarasova’s criticism of this announcement was pretty scathing.

Why would TAT say anything? What a fool to be harsh aginst your countries first female FS olympic gold medalist. Adelina hasnt been the same since she tore that ankle ligament in 2014. So sorry Ade never got healthy enough to back up her Sochi gold. Missing worlds 2014 was sad too after winning olympics.

what did she say??

https://www.sports.ru/figure-skating/1066378751.html

"I can not hear all this anymore. How much Adelina will be skipping seasons? She does not compete since the Olympic Games ended. This is of no interest to anyone already.

Sotnikova is a professional now, she works in a shows. God grant her health, so as not to spoil her legs. But no one expected that she will compete again. Maybe in her dreams, or she dreamed that she would return.

She will never go out to competitions. It was clear at once. Of course, she can tell stories to everyone. But we, professional people, understand that this will not happen. What kind of game is so stupid? After all, she is an Olympic champion, and she herself must understand that this is wrong."

(reporter) "She can announce the end of her career in that case."

"No one asks about it. Someone addressed to her from serious people? She is an Olympic champion, but has already passed the fifth year since she did not appear anywhere. If she likes to play like that... it looks ridiculous, unworthy of the Olympic champion."

It's not quite true, though. Adelina did compete a few times in the 2015-16 season: at Japan Open, two challengers, at Rostelecom, and Russian Nationals. It may not be a whole lot in all this time - only during one season, and it's been a while since, but to say that she hasn't appeared "anywhere" in over four years is... untrue.

Why TAT why? Why does she care if Adelina Sotnikova announces her retirement or not?

Not so simple, Adelina receives money from the Fed, but... kind of... doesn't do anything.
Tbh, most of the comments about that were with a negative connotation (of course, exept Plushenko), although, of course, not in such a tough way (TAT is like old wise grumbling grandmother whom allowed a lot)

Ngl I kinda side-eyed when I read TAT's thoughts about Ade. But I had to keep on mind that this is the girl she nurtured and helped out the most out of the skaters that came before Sochi. So I can kind of see where TAT is coming from. I hope Ade clarifies what she wants to do with her career. It isn't mainly about her position towards for Rusfed but for her fans too.

Ade's post some days later https://www.instagram.com/p/Bm-6AhOlr5s/?taken-by=adelina_sotnikova14

1. The most important thing is the goal, motivation and coach.
2. The most native is mom, dad and coach.
3. The most important is willpower.
4. The most unpleasant is the criticism of people who even think and can not, what happens in a person's life.
5. The worst thing - when you are not where you planned - out of the game. -google translate,

And Alena Leonova, I believe.

Did she retire?

Not officially at any rate. Her status is still pretty much up in the air.

She will be doing Plushy's Swan Lake in December, though - she'll be the black swan. Other than that I don't think anything is known?

I just hope Adelina devoted herself to something other than being an oligarch’s or footballer’s wife.

Pretty sure she isn't! I read from past interviews that she wants to earn money in her own terms.
I know she has set up some nail salons for herself and her mother.

Adelina just posted a short video on her Instagram stories with the caption, “Good evening with my (heart emoji)”. Any ideas who the very lucky guy is?
