Some more comments from Eteri Tutberidze about Olympics, Medvedeva and Zagitova.
Recently Eteri Tutberidze gave an interview for tv-channel NTV
About break up with Medvedeva:
Eteri: Of course, it hurts. Every coach has skaters who left him, it’s normal. A person wants to try something different, it’s normal. But It’s not normal for me how a person leaves. That’s all. Find strength in yourself, probably it’s scary, but it’s necessary, for yourself, not for me.
Eteri also thinks that now Alina most of all needs support.
Eteri: The girl is 16 years old! A child! With the Olympic medal and with understanding: the whole world looks at her and waits, well girl what can you do now. And also this background that she took something from someone … She won. The way she has been going to this… I’ll tell you a secret. I think that thanks to Alina Zhenya performed so well at the Olympics, because she was dragging her.
