The silver medalist of the 2011 Junior Grand Prix Final and 2012 Russian Junior Championships Polina Shelepen, a student of Eteri Tutberidze, may join Russia’s national team at two Worlds.

According to her official pages in social networks, she will take part at the 2012 World Junior Championships, which will be held in Minsk from February 24 to March 2 and at the 2012 World Championships in Nice, which will be held from March 26 to April 1.

In this case, at the Junior Worlds she will replace Elizaveta Tuktamisheva and will join Adelina Sotnikova and her team-mate Julia Lipnitskaia, while at senior’s Worlds she will replace Ksenia Makarova and will join Alena Leonova and Polina Korobeynikova. WFS does not know yet details and reasons of these changes in the Russian team for the senior’s Worlds. As for the junior’s, please read our recent article about it here >

One thing is clear – Russia’s ladies team at the 2012 World figure skating championships in Nice will be one of the strongest in recent years.
