Inna Goncharenko about Maxim Kovtun’s preparation to Skate America 2017.
Back pain has been bothering Maxim for a long time, because of this we had to skip trainings and then start the work from the beginning. We do everything possible to go to Lake Placid. I think that competition is the best training, the best way to motivate an athlete, to mobilize him. Therefore, I really want my athlete to go to this Grand-prix in USA and perform there.
We could not start full trainings for a long time. For a fgure skater Maxim is tall enough, and he has such a muscle structure that without a load, muscles immediately become heavy and it becomes more difficult to skate. – Inna Goncharenko explained.
So, should we expect Max’s possible withdrawal or prepare for not the performance?
