Alexander, as a coach, did you pay attention to the influence show business has on young figure skaters? Now Alina Zagitova is already both a blogger and a host. Anna Shcherbakova – too. And no one hurries to return to the national team, and there are many reproaches about this.
Alexander Zhulin: For young girls to start to be distracted, it would be good for them to win the Olympic Games “for a start.” I will say a seditious thing: I don’t see any reason to return either for Alina Zagitova, or Anna Shcherbakova, or Yulia Lipnitskaya, or Adelina Sotnikova. The girls have already won. And in order to motivate yourself, something special has to happen.
Unfortunately, Russian competitions are not yet the motivation that can excite those who participated in the Olympics, World and European Championships, do you understand?
So I am grateful to both the Russian Figure Skating Federation (FFKR) and the sports directorate of Channel One – to everyone who is trying to come up with new formats to captivate our athletes. Without this, we would have withered

Tatiana Tarasova: “What did our athletes do wrong to Tessa? Signing such letters, they kill their colleagues! This is a real murder and I can’t look at it any other way.”
For Shcherbakova, just take it slow and restore double-triple jumps. Motivation can be to land 3A, GPF gold etc.
Force it like Trusova, look what it did to her. Hurt both physically and emotionally.
Thanks to her fans who keep encouraging her to break her legs.
Why would they return? Anna and Alina have already done everything!! And why bring Yulia into it? She made it quite clear on several occasion her intention to retire.
