Elizaveta Khudaiberdieva and Egor Bazin: “We want at least to have a chance to fight, but this chance is being taken away from us, from all of us.”
Elizaveta Khudaiberdieva and Egor Bazin shared their impressions of their free dance performance at the Russian Nationals 2022 where the duo placed 3d.
Elizaveta Khudaiberdieva: We are glad that in such a tense atmosphere we got everything together. The coaches are happy and this is our greatest praise. I’m glad everything ended well.
Why is the situation tense?
Egor Bazin: It’s still the Olympic season. Not only one pair is trying to qualify for the Olympics. We all tried … Another thing is that we give our whole life for this chance. We train … We try …
Elizaveta Khudaiberdieva: And we play by the rules.
Egor Bazin: And this chance is being taken away from us. From all of us. Well, from many who would like to do this. I will not say who and what. Everyone knows it perfectly well. I do not offend anyone, but sport should remain a sport. And we want at least to have a chance, at least a chance to fight. Today we overcame ourselves. Once I’ve read that figure skating is a sport where you fight with yourself. Today we did it. Hope we’ll break into the next Olympic season.
