It was very difficult without ice. I’m happy to resume full-time training,” Zagitova said, explaining that she had kept fit at home during the break.

The skater hasn’t announced whether she will take part in competitions next season after taking a lengthy pause last season.

The reigning world and Olympic champion decided to put her career on hold after finishing last at the ISU Grand Prix final, losing to younger opponents with more impressive technical content.

Choreographer Daniil Gleikhengauz has added fuel to speculation of Zagitova’s return, saying she has already chosen music for next season’s programs.

Despite the lack of official confirmation, Zagitova’s fans feel sure she will make a comeback as early as this coming fall, when figure skating competitions resume.
