Alexander Zhulin: “It will be hard for Trusova to cope with quads while she is overweight. If a few kilograms are gone, it will become much easier for her to skate.”
Alexander Zhulin believes that being overweight can prevent Alexandra Trusova from performing quadruple jumps.
Trusova took third place at the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi. In the free program, she fell from a quadruple lutz.
Alexander Zhulin: It is difficult to say whether Trusova will return to the previous level. For me, the program is empty in terms of choreography – a lot of crossovers.
I don’t want to offend anyone, but it will be hard for Trusova to cope with quads while she is overweight. If a few kilograms are gone, it will become much easier for her to skate.
This is a difficult moment because it’s girls, they are unpredictable. I think her character is strong, so she will return to the previous level. I would like to hope so.
