Ksenia Makarova will join the Russian national team for the World Championships in Nice, said today the president of the Figure Skating Federation of Russia Alexander Gorshkov to R-Sport agency.

Russian skating federation allowed the option of replacing Makarova since mid-February as she competed unsuccessfully at the first half of the season. However, Russia’s figure skating officials decided not to change her for the first alternate Polina Shelepen.

Russian ladies team in Nice will be also represented by Alena Leonova and Polina Korobeynikova. The World Figure Skating Championships will be held between March 26 and April 1.
