video interview by Elena Rodina youtube channel dd. 18th February
Alexander Zhulin: Their coaches stopped noticing us at all. The coaches simply believed that they were in space, unreachable, and we somewhere in there – the servants. And suddenly turns out that servants also capable of something.
Other coaches called me, congratulated me, many are my good friends who also coach both rivals and our pairs. In any case, this is such a momentous moment, because it turns out that it’s possible to fight them.
We’ll see, it can really backfire in Montreal (at the World Championships). Let’s hope that Vika and Nikita will have a good competitions. Let’s see, you know, every competitions are different. Only recently it was sixth place in the Grand Prix Final, and now – the first at the European Championships.
Is it possible for Russia to win gold at the Olympics? Why not? Of course, we are all secretly, deep down and not deep down in our hearts always think about the first place. I definitely always think about the first place.
When this does not work, do not give up, you need to roll up your sleeves and try again. Then it’s interesting to live, and in general it makes some sense.
