Eteri Tutberidze, a disturbing presence at the world figure skating championships

Montreal currently hosts the World Figure Skating Championships. Among the athletes and coaches present, one person especially attracts attention: the Russian coach Eteri Tutberidze.

It was she who, at the 2022 Beijing Olympics, dreamed of a podium for her protégé, Kamila Valieva.

This young skater promised to win the gold medal, but fell into disgrace and decline after a positive doping test. At the Games, he finally collapsed on the ice which would reflect his triumph.

This week, on the edge of the Bell Center ice rink, Eteri Tutbridze gives advice to Georgian skater Nika Egadze. The coach’s proximity to Georgia could be explained by the fact that her daughter, Diane Davis, who was born in the United States, also has Georgian nationality and that she competes in dance for this country in these world championships, along with her partner Gleb Smolkin. . .
