What did the mentor of Kamila Valieva say, commenting on the rental of Diana Davis and Gleb Smolkin?
Eteri Tutberidze, as always, modestly commented on the performance of her 19-year-old daughter Diana Davis. The figure skater paired with Gleb Smolkin for the first time in her sports career in ice dancing performed at the Olympics. Her debut came at the 2022 Games in Beijing.
The eminent mother of the skater was clearly satisfied with the rental of her daughter and her partner, the son of the star of the sitcom My Fair Nanny Boris Smolkin. Eteri Georgievna called the debut of young athletes an excellent result for beginners. They scored 179.82 points. By the way, this pair was the seventh at the European Championships. But at the Beijing Olympics, the debutants took only 14th place. But this mother of Diana Davis did not upset at all. The mentor of Kamila Valieva, Anna Shcherbakova and the “Russian rocket” Alexandra Trusova believes that Diana and Gleb are still ahead. They will get stronger by the next season and bloom in full.
On the successful debut of her daughter and them with Gleb Smolkin, 14th place in ice dancing at the Beijing Olympics, the honored coach reacted with her usual restraint, saying only two words. But what!
“With an excellent debut,” Eteri Tutberidze wrote in the stories of her microblog, noting Diana and Gleb in the publication.
By the way, another of our couples – Alexandra Stepanova with Ivan Bukin – according to the results of two programs, were content with sixth place, a couple of Diana Davis – Gleb Smolkin – 14th. Victoria Sinitsina and Nikita Katsalapov climbed to second place.
