Anna Shcherbakova about her performance of the short program at the Russian Nationals and coronavirus she had.
Anna Shcherbakova: I feel … I am satisfied with the performance, because I feel not fully recovered yet. I tried to abstract from this and skate the best I can. It was a stupid mistake, but I’m happy anyway.
I was very focused and after the last jump, after the combination I decided to let myself go. And I simply lacked concentration on the spin – it happens. The disease is affecting, I haven’t fully recovered yet. There will be time to rest, to recover.
There should be enough strength for the free program – the main thing is to believe.
