Elizaveta Berestovskaya spoke about the failed transitions to "Crystal" and "Angels Plushenko", quadruple jumps and relationship with coach Sergei Davydov.

“It didn't go very well. Not the way I wanted. I did a bad cascade, I twisted it on the lutz and immediately inserted the toe loop. Everything else is good, but we must strive for the best. There is very strong competition here. Especially between our Russian athletes. I hope the quad will help me fight for medals tomorrow."

- Have you already dealt with the mistake with the coach?
- Yes, he explained to me. I bend over strongly and twist my arm. But we are working on it. I am good at making a lutz-toe loop, but today it didn't work out. We are going to make it 10 out of 10.

- In the meantime, nine out of 10?
- Well, yes. You also need to understand how to keep the body straight.

- Will you perform a quadruple toe loop tomorrow?
- Yes one.

- This is not your maximum?
- Yes, not the maximum. This February I jumped a quadruple salchow and two toe loops in the program, I completed my triple axel. But at the Russian championship here I performed without a toe loop, because there was an injury, and two weeks later I jumped a triple axel. But this season I am planning to develop this content.

- In the offseason, they wrote that you tried to train at Khrustalny and Angels of Plushenko. How did this happen?
- It was after the championship of Russia. Maybe 10 days have passed. We did not have very good circumstances at CSKA, there was a misunderstanding. I tried to go to the group of Eteri Georgievna Tutberidze, but they didn’t take me. They said, "She's a very good girl, but there is no room." There is also the Olympic season.

There is no place at all in the senior group, since there is still an adult couple Evgenia Tarasova / Vladimir Morozov training. Then I was invited to one training session with Evgeny Viktorovich Plushenko, but there we did not agree to cooperate. In general, we decided to return. We met with Sergei Dmitrievich, discussed everything. Now I am in his group again.

- Did you not cooperate with Plushenko because it is inconvenient to travel?
- Well ... Probably yes. Because of this.

-Sergey Davydov reacted to all this normally?
- Yes, with understanding.
