The Kazakhstan national team talked about the transition process of the Russian player Samodelkina

Coach Kasanova said that in Kazakhstan they will ask the FFKKR to remove Samodelkina

The head coach of the Kazakhstan figure skating team, Assem Kasanova, spoke about the process of Russian figure skater Sofia Samodelkina joining the team. Her words are quoted by RIA Novosti.

She recalled that last fall the Skating Union of Kazakhstan broke up into two separate federations: speed skating and figure skating. The latter has not yet received accreditation from the country’s Ministry of Justice. After this happens, the new organization will send a request to the Russian Figure Skating Federation with a request to release Samodelkina.

Last October, the International Skating Union (ISU) allowed Samodelkina to take part in the Kazakhstan Championship. The athlete’s desire to change her sports citizenship became known in August of the same year.

Samodelkina is Russian vice-champion in women’s singles skating among juniors. The skater also has victories and prizes at the stages of the Russian Cup.
