Daria Usacheva: “After an injury I didn’t have a psychologist, I didn’t have thoughts – that’s it, the end. Now I have even more motivation.”
Daria Usacheva said that she is in the process of recovering from an injury.
Usacheva was injured in November 2021 during the warm-up before the start of the short program at the Grand Prix in Tokyo, since then she has not competed. In April 2022, Daria took part in the Eteri Tutberidze show in Moscow, but didn’t perform jumps.
Daria Usacheva: Recovery is underway, slowly, gradually, without leaps, so that nothing happens again. I gradually restore jumps. In terms of training, everything is the same, I just do the elements that I need.
Now the plans are to recover, go on vacation, continue to fight. After the injury, I have even more motivation.
Daria also told about her emotions after the injury: “On the first day I was worried, but then I began to recover. I didn’t have a psychologist, I didn’t have thoughts – that’s it, the end. I did everything I could do, I prepared for the exam, guys often came to me, supported me”
