Trials will take place for the Russian national figure skating team next month, Russian Figure Skating Federation president Alexander Gorshkov told R-Sport on Friday.
Closed performances in front of federation specialists will start next week in Novogorsk outside Moscow, with public trials to be held in mid-September.
“The first airing for the programs will be closed in Novogorsk,” Gorshkov said.
“The main goal of these skates is that the skaters demonstrate the readiness of their programs for the given period, after which they will discuss the elements in the program with coaches.”
“The open trial skates, during which the skaters will perform in front of spectators, will be over four days in and around Moscow in mid-September.”
Spectators will be able to watch the trials for a “symbolic” low price, he said.
