“Lyuba really took her time with this decision. After talking to Coach Yuri Marichev, they both agreed that her presence would be needed and her experience will play a vital role as Russia tries to defend the crown they’ve won in 2006 and 2010.”

The source also adds that Lyuba’s longtime teammate is not on board yet.

“Gamova has made up her mind and she will not play with the National Team anytime soon. She is really focusing on her personal life now that she’s married. Katya has been very vocal about her decision. Coach respects her decision but at the same time she’s always welcome to join the team.”
