Eteri Tutberidze also called the rumors that she keeps her female skaters on a strict diet absurd.
Tutberidze answered the question of whether it is true that she forbids her athletes to drink water.
“This is absurd. On the contrary, hydration is very important. And, of course, I watch the weight of the skaters, but just so that they do not lose weight … On the contrary. You can’t train well if you don’t eat…
And I do not allow skaters to train with serious injuries. Doctors are watching them. In the case of a fracture, we stop. On the other hand, if it’s a muscle problem or a slight sprain, I try not to take them out of the training process…”
Tutberidze also mentioned that Valieva and Shcherbakova have separate locker rooms. ““Each of them has her own locker room,” Tutberidze said.
