Russian figure skaters are in good shape for the new season and the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin
Russian figure skaters are in good shape for the new season and the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, the president of the Russian Figure Skating Federation (FSF) said Thursday. "On the whole, we are satisfied with the leaders of the team," Valentin Piseyev said. With the new season only six weeks away, Piseyev watched the skaters perform their new programs in pre-season preparations in the Moscow region. "The Russian team is ready to fight for medals in all four figure skating competitions at the 2006-Olympics," he said. Two-time World Champion Tatyana Totmyanina said it was important to be prepared psychologically for the season. "First or all, we will have to compete with ourselves," she said. "Everything depends on how we can cope with the situation psychologically." Irina Slutskaya, who won last year her second world crown after a long absence due to illness, did not reveal details of her new program. "You will see the program as the season unfolds," she said. Slutskaya also said she was not yet thinking about Turin and was focusing on the Russian Championship.
