- When they began to put the new program?
- At the beginning of the transition. I first made a short program to waltz music from the film "A Hunting Accident".
- What is the reason for moving to Moscow?
- The financing difficulties. In St. Petersburg, I have no one to sponsor me and to cover the costs that were growing every year, on the shoulders of parents I counted wrong.
- However, the issue with your transition resolved immediately.
- St. Petersburg skating federation did not want to let me go. They said that in St. Petersburg there are so little skaters. But I decided, if not released, then all of the sport and do not go into hiding. As the time for the completion of the transition was running out, that Peter had to settle for my move.

Japanese junior silver medalist Kaori Sakamoto is in fourth after skating a clean program, though her solo lutz had an edge call, which brought her base value and execution down and kept her from moving into the top three.
