Elizaveta Sergeyevna "Liza" Tuktamysheva (Russian: Елизавета Сергеевна Туктамышева; born December 17, 1996 in Glazov, Russia) is a Russian figure skater. She is the 2009 Russian silver medalist and Russian Junior silver medalist.[1] She is coached by Svetlana Veretennikova in her home town Glazov and by Alexei Mishin, whom she visits in Saint Petersburg on a weekly basis.[2] Mishin has been criticized for making Tuktamysheva participate in the Russian Championships (2008) at only 12 year old.[3]


Tuktamysheva started skating at the age of five.[4] Figure skating coach Alexei Mishin noticed Tuktamysheva at the competitions in Belgorod in 2006 and invited her to Saint Petersburg to train under him.[5] However her family could not afford to move to a big city, which is why Tuktamysheva lives in her home town Glazov and visits Mishin in Saint Petersburg every two weeks, spending nights in a dormitory.[6]

In 2008, she placed 10th at the Russian Championships.[7] In 2009 she won the silver medal at the Russian Championships, after placing 4th in the short program and made a few apparent mistakes in the free skating.[8] She placed 2nd with a margin of 0.67 points behind champion Adelina Sotnikova, who is half a year older than Tuktamysheva.[9][10]

In 2009, when she won her national silver medals, she was not old enough to compete at an ISU Figure Skating Championships. She will be old enough to compete in ISU Junior competition in the 2010-2011 season. She will not be old enough to compete in senior ISU Championships until the 2012-2013 season, although Mishin calls her "main hope for gold medal at the Sochi Olympics".[6]

At 2010 Russian Championships she was 10th after the short program, but earned 124.57 points in free skating and was able to win a bronze medal.[11] In March she took part in the ice show Kings on Ice.[12]
