Trusova fell on the triple axel and placed 3d after the short program (75.13)

Alexandra Trusova: Well, today, as usual, triple axel didn’t turn out in the program. I will work – I hope it will work out. For some reason, in competitions it still does not work out for me, in training everything works out, there are already 70% of successful attempts. Probably, this is a psychological moment, after all, it’s the most difficult jump for me. But to refuse from jumping it means to lose, after all I have been trying to do it for three years now.

Working with a psychologist? I myself understand well what is wrong here, what needs to be done, and, probably, I can already guess what the psychologist will tell me. In addition, my mother is always with me, and probably she partly does the work of a psychologist – she always listens to me and supports me.

    There’s a concept called “professional help”. One could argue it doesn’t replace hard work or anything, but it could help, maybe.
    I mean anyway it would probably not help much in the little time left until the olympics. Wish her the best !
