Georgian figure skater Anastasiia Gubanova won silver at the 2024 European Championships. Last season she won gold.
Here’s a translation of Anastasiia Gubanova’s comments reported by sports.ru journalist Maya Bagriantseva.
“I am incredibly satisfied and unbelievably happy. I didn’t expect it, honestly. I came to this competition not aiming for a medal, understanding that gold is an almost impossible task. I just wanted to give my maximum, so I wouldn’t have any regrets later. And it seems I succeeded. And here is a medal as a bonus.
It’s so strange; I didn’t feel nervous at all during the performance. This European Championships was probably the calmest start in my career.
I stepped onto the ice with the thought that I need to enjoy it and leave everything on the ice,” Sports.ru correspondent Maya Bagryantseva cites Gubanova.
Nina Pinzarrone: “It’s crazy, but it’s not like I didn’t expect it; I wanted to do better than last season. I’m very happy and can be proud of myself.”
