The fourteen year old Daria Elizarova connected her switch leap (C) to a forward tuck (D), with no single pause between both elements. The combination is worth 0.1 connection bonus.

She competed a back handspring (B) to two layout step outs (C), worth 0.1 connection bonus and 0.1 series bonus, a split jump with full turn (D), straddle pike position (C), tuck jump with one and a half turn (D) and a full turn with leg below horizontal (A).

She then attempted to do the acrobatic series of Onodi (D) to forward aerial (D) to side somi (D). It would have been worth 0.1 series bonus, had it been successfully connected. She performed a sheep jump (C), a sissone (A) to a wolf jump with full turn (D) and ended her routine with a double back tuck (D).

The routine took place in 2005. Elizarova turned senior in 2007 where she was an alternate for the 2007 Russia's World team. According to Between The Olympics blog, she was originally on the 2008 Russian Olympic team but had to give up her spot due to an illness.

In 2010, she started competing for Uzbekistan. She competed at 2011 World championships and was alternate to Luiza Galiulina at 2012 Olympic Games. However, she switched back to her native country and competed at the Russian cup in 2013. She competed at the 2015 Universiade Games where she finished first with the team, third on vault and second on floor exercise.

She competed at 2016 Vornin cup where she won gold in the all around and on balance beam.

As a junior, Daria won the European all around and balance beam titles in 2006.

The routine was judged according to 2017-2020 COP
