    The 2015 World Champion is apparently willing to get the most out of an ongoing unplanned vacation from big time sports, and she hopes her social media followers do the same.

    Award-winning Russian figure skater Elizaveta Tuktamysheva has laid out her plans for the ongoing corona-related self-isolation in a new Instagram post, in which she wrote:

    “I stick to the principle 'to find something positive in whatever situation', so my plan for the near future is to really do something that I have never had time for".

    These days, she is planning to read a lot and watch movies, which are “sometimes not really smart, but funny and positive", as well as allow herself to just think things over. Tuktamysheva, who at the 2015 World Championships became the first female skater to land four triple jumps in a short programme, believes that any promising idea requires time, and it has now come.

    “So many interesting things are swirling in my head, I truly hope to turn everything into reality", Tuktamysheva, who boosted her fame following a 2018 “striptease” performance in Canada, posted, wishing her subscribers good spirits and to dedicate quality time to themselves.

    Two years ago, she virtually stole the spotlight during the Skate Canada Grand Prix when she launched an “undressing trend” with her spectacular strip-down-to-lingerie show.
