This week, Perm is hosting the fifth stage of this season’s Cup of Russia series – a less star-studded series compared to last season when major international competitions were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic – but Russia’s younger figure skaters continue proving that the country’s future is not just bright, but possibly capable of reaching new heights.

A winner of the Austrian stage of this season’s International Skating Union (ISU) Junior Grand Prix series, and qualifier for the ISU Grand Prix Final next month, Sofia Muravieva dominated in the women’s short program event – the 15-year-old from Moscow began her short program with a clean triple axel and then a triple flip. Skating to Ne Me Quitte Pas by Celine Dion, the representative of Evgeni Plushenko’s Angels of Plushenko completed her jumping sequences with a triple Lutz-triple toe loop combination. Muravieva received a score of 83.05 points for her performance.

Sambo-70’s Adelia Petrosian did not attempt a triple axel in her presentation and began her short program routine with a double axel, followed by a triple flip. A winner of the Slovenian stage of this season’s ISU Junior Grand Prix series, and also a qualifier for the Final, the 14-year-old Moscow-native managed a triple Lutz-double toe loop combination in her final jumping sequence. She received a score of 66.11 points for the performance.

2019 European champion Sofia Samodurova is currently in the bronze medal position. The 19-year-old figure skater began her short program with a triple flip-triple toe loop combination; unfortunately, her toe loop was deemed to be under-rotated. Samodurova later completed a triple Lutz and a double axel. She received a score of 63.50 points.
