Tatyana Tarasova is trainer of Russian Figure Skating Federation
President of Federation Valentin Piseev informed that Tarasova accepted a post on Monday October 17.
She is responsible for control over reserve staff of Russian team. "Tarasova came to Moscow and we have to use her experience, knowledge and authority. We came to agreement that there will be no conflicts, she will not thrust her opinion on sportsmen and trainers but will interfere when it is needed".
At the end of September Tarasova announced that she intends to refuse from all her pupils and try another activity.
"I plan to start everything from zero. From next season I want to advise figure skaters, to put performances. I have different suggestions. I hope that there will be invitation from our Federation of figure skating," - said Tarasova.
She said that she doesn`t pretend on leading positions in Federation. "I didn`t even think of it. I don`t have desire to head Federation. I don`t have experience for that. But I think that one needs changes when sport develops poorly. But figure skating moves ahead in Russia. I don`t know other kind of sport that is more successful".
