MOSCOW, April 29. /TASS/. Figure skater Tiffany Zahorski, who previously performed for the French national team, has received a Russian passport, the 21-year-old athlete reported on Thursday in her Instagram blog.

"I have officially become a citizen of the Russian Federation. I don’t think there are words to describe how glad I am to become fully Russian figure skater. If someone had told me about it 2 years ago, that I would be a citizen, representing Russia, I would have never believed it. At the same time, my life has cardinally changed, but it could not have come at a better time", the figure skater wrote.

Zahorski performs in ice dancing with Russian Jonathan Guerreiro. The duo debuted at the 2015 Russian Championship, where they took the fifth place. The athletes train in Moscow and are coached by Alexander Zhulin.

Before 2014 Zahorski competed under the French flag. Together with Alexis Miart the duo won bronze in the 2012 French Figure Skating Championship.
