Julia Lipnitskaia has returned to Moscow to train before returning to Sochi for her individual events.

The 15-year-old Russian already has one in team skating and says it's "very heavy but beautiful."

Next on her agenda is the women's competition, which begins Feb. 19 in Sochi. Until then, Lipnitskaia plans to train at her home rink in Moscow.

She told fans who met her Tuesday at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport that she was extremely nervous before the team competition, a new event, and expects to be better able to keep her nerves in check for the more familiar individual competition.

"I don't know yet, but I will be calmer then, to be honest," she said. "This will be more like what I'm used to."
