Short comment from Mikhail Kolyada about ideas for programs and superstitions:
Ideas for the program can come at any time. For example, I’m standing in line at the store, some ideas has come, I need to write them down quickly, because then I can forget. Then come home, start search all this on the Internet, listen, imagine myself in this artistic image and come the next day with a ready idea. For the next season we have only notes but I won’t tell until September, I can’t.
Most athletes are superstitious, including me. There are some things that I do every day, and it’s not actually a superstition, just a habit. For example, I always do my laces from the left foot, go out on the ice starting with my left foot.
