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!

    I mean – they still have to participate – right? (Sasha and Anya, to win the team event in lieu of Valieva).

  2. CC says:

    Jacko man: True – but Sasha and Anya didn’t skate in the team event, as decided by Rusfed. What do you make of that

  3. Jacko Man says:

    LoL. Valieva didn’t even need to skate FP, Russia already won gold. OK, assume that Valieva take drugs. Next are Shcherbakova and Trusova. They are clean. The testing body are the main one at fault here for being late and unprofessional. Even if Valieva was disqualified before the team event, Russia would’ve still won. No woman on this planet can touch Shcherbakova and Trusova.

    Keep dreaming, Vincent, maybe next time.

  5. C says:

    I agree, Russia would have won with either Anna or Sasha should they have skated in the team event instead of Kamila. Fun fact: they didn’t.

    And so the gold is up for grabs if Kamila is dq:ed. That’s just the way it is.
