Alexei Mishin: “There are athletes who, despite all their talents, fail to reach the top in the medal standings. It’s often said that sport gave them the audience, the love of the audience.”
Alexei Mishin about Elizaveta Tuktamysheva’s non-inclusion in the Russian national team for the European Championships and performance at the Russian Nationals.
Alexei Mishin: There are athletes who, despite all their talents, fail to reach the top in the medal standings. It’s often said that sport gave them the audience, the love of the audience.
I think this statement of wise people who have lived in figure skating all their lives largely refers to Liza Tuktamysheva. But besides this great love, she has gold medals of the World Championships, Europe and Russia.
Mishin also spoke about the results of the Russian Nationals.
Alexei Mishin: I don’t comment on the performances of single skaters whom I don’t coach, because that would not be entirely correct. I want to avoid rash phrases.
As for my skaters, I can say that the performances at the Russian Nationals were neither good nor a failure. It makes sense to talk about them in more detail after the European Championships.
