YEKATERINBURG, February 13. /ITAR-TASS/. The sports school, in which Maxim Kovtun, the incumbent national champion in men’s figure skating, and Yulia Lipnitskaya, the Sochi 2014 Olympic figure skating champion in team’s event, made their first steps in figure skating will soon undergo renovation.

All design documentation is ready for repairing the school located at the Lokomotiv stadium in Yekaterinburg. The renovation will start in 2015 and finish in three years, Vadim Dudarenko, head of municipal property department and deputy head of Yekaterinburg city administration, said on Thursday. He added that all media reports about the school’s critical condition were exaggerated.

“We have visited the school and we understood that there is no emergency situation there. The contractors will need two or three years to finish all repairs, which will be carried out in several stages, Dudarenko said.

The Lokomotiv youth and children’s sport school used to be on the balance sheet of the Russian Railways Company. Today, the local municipal government took charge of it. The school has several sections: figure-skating, gymnastics, sambo, skiing, athletics, cycling, speed skating, football and ice-hockey.

The figure skating section was organized in 1963. Since then, it has been the only figure skating school in the Sverdlovsk region.
