Here’s a translation of Aleksandra Stepanova and Ivan Bukin’s comments after their first competition after a pause.
“Alexandra Stepanova stated that her ice dancing pair with Ivan Bukin has not yet reached its full potential.
Today, the figure skaters won the Grand Prix of Russia stage in Krasnoyarsk in ice dancing.
“Our potential is not exhausted; there is room for improvement. Some athletes can no longer push themselves to new heights, but we switched to a different team (to Alexander Zhulin), which provides us with many opportunities to unfold and showcase new aspects of our skating.
This season, despite not having international competitions, is even beneficial for us. We are trying to find the positives in this situation. Of course, we very much want to compete in international tournaments,” said five-time European Championships ice dancing medalist Aleksandra Stepanova.”
