Alexander Zulin: “Quads alone are not enough for Malinin to win? Well Sasha Trusova at the Olympics is your answer. After all, you need not just to run between the elements, but also to own your body.”
Alexander Zhulin told what Ilia Malinin lacked to win the World Championships.
American figure skater won bronze in Saitama. He landed two quadruple jumps in the short program and six in the free program, including quad axel.
So quads alone are not enough for Malinin to win?
Alexander Zhulin: Well we remember Sasha Trusova at the Olympics. Here is your answer. After all, you need not just to run between the elements, but also to own your body.
But it’s all within reach. I once considered Nathan Chen to be absolutely wooden at the beginning of his career. He just jumped and waved his arms. Then in two seasons he turned into just a divine skater. That’s all. The main thing is to work.
