Daria Andreyevna Sadkova (Дарья Андреевна Садкова) was born June 26th 2008 in the town of Yoshkar-Ola (pop. ~250k, by the river Volga, about 600km east of Moscow) the capital of the republic of Marii-El. She began figure skating at the age of four in her home town. She was coached in Yoshkar-Ola by Dmitriy Ivanov and Oksana Nizova. In the fall of 2020 she relocated with her mother to Moscow to train permanently with the famous coaching team "Team Tutberidze", of Eteri Tutberidze, Daniil Gleikhengauz and Sergei Dudakov. She trains in southern Moscow in an ice rink called Khrustalnyi (Хрустальный), or "Crystal". Her father and younger brother stayed behind in Yoshkar-Ola.

Daria or "Dasha" is known to be an expressive and musical skater, with long limbs and great lines, good spins and a very explosive axel jump. As of February 2021 her favorite jumps were double axel and triple loop. Dasha is also a very good dancer, as is visible in the many videos posted by Alexei Zhelezhniakov, a dance instructor working closely with Team Tutberidze. An Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7B2F1o074Vg This is not surprising, since she has been dancing a lot since early childhood, she loves to dance and has been experimenting many different styles of dance with her mother.

An Example of Dasha's short program from season 2020-2021 April 12th 2021 from a competition called "President's Prizes" (На призы президента), which she won. In the video she is being escorted by a former Team Tutberidze skater and current assistant coach Polina Tsurskaya: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdZZtoOvukc

An Example of her free program from season 2020-2021 from the same competition two days later: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aL1jhiEzCxU

Dasha has been chosen to be part of Russia's Novice National Team. It is unclear whether she will get to represent Russia in the Junior Grand Prix 2021. Age wise she just about qualifies, having been born 5 days before the deadline date.

And her Q and A session on Instagram stories in late February 2021. I have saved some of that info.

If I translate it correctly, the writing on the black boards says "Daria and her plans to rule the world" :laugh:
Pretty much. Google translate sees "zahvat" as more like "to take over", but makes little difference.

I think we all get the point: Dasha has some evil plans, and we need to stop her before it's too late

Let's run Dasha's message through that translation machine as well:

13 years !!! 🎂🎉🎊🎈
Perhaps this is one of the best birthdays! I am very glad and grateful that I am surrounded by so many loyal, kind and wonderful friends, thank you! I am also very grateful to my relatives and friends, they are always with me. Despite the distance, they gave me a wonderful gift🎁
