“And did Zhou won gold medals to say that? The Americans are simply insolent!” Tarasova about Vincent Zhou words that team US should get Olympic team
Russians commented on the words of the American figure skater Vincent Zhou that the US team should receive a team gold of the Beijing Olympics.
In the recent interview for figureskatingonline.com Vincent Zhou said that he and his teammates haven’t been told anything regarding when they will be able to receive their Olympic medals.
“We are prepared to wait a week, two weeks, six months, four years. Who knows?” he said.
When they do receive their medals, Zhou said it should be through a dignified ceremony and that Team USA should receive gold medals, instead of silver.
“But that’s not up to us,” he continued. “We have to live with whatever the outcome is, even if the outcome isn’t the desired outcome.”
Sure such words cause a resonance among Russians) Here are some comments.
Natalia Bestemianova: And what, gold is given after someone else wants it? That’s funny! What is Zhou talking about?!
In fact, I don’t want to comment on the statements of American skaters. Everyone is free to say what he thinks. We can’t stop people from dreaming.
For me personally, our Russian team won! Logical and clear. If we had known about the doping scandal with Kamila Valieva, we could have made a replacement. Any other girl on our team would have taken first place! I have no other options, except for our gold.
Alexei Yagudin: Don’t they want to beat the Russian team first? You can wish for anything. But in order to get gold medals or want to get them, you must beat our team first.
And at the moment it is simply impossible to do this. Russian team has the strongest skaters.
Tatiana Tarasova: And did Zhou won gold medals to say that? The Americans are simply insolent! I don’t even think that they will be able to take Olympic gold without us.
Zhou is not leading the parade! He does not determine the places in figure skating. What do we get? Skaters should listen to Zhou, not ISU? None of his business!
Ilia Averbukh: “If another pair appears now, like Papadakis / Cizeron, they won’t win. Pair who has a concise story without excessive emotions will take a lead now.”
