“How many people, so many opinions. I won my first Grand Prix at the age of 15. This is my answer.” Evgenia Medvedeva about raising the age minimum
Evgenia Medvedeva about silver medal at the Olympics, Tutberidze’s group and raising the age minimum.
About competition in the group of Tutberidze
Evgenia Medvedeva: The main thing is to have respect. Rivalry is one thing, but respect is quite another. I’m not talking about sports respect, but about the personal respect of a person for a person. All the girls work very hard. Judging by the way they communicate, they have a warm relationship. I hope everything is alright.
About the reason for the Tutberidze’s group success
Evgenia Medvedeva: There is always an unchanging system, an unchanging coaching staff. A system developed over the years. It gives results. The system of communication, training, loads, run-throughs. This is a very multifaceted and complex work that has been building up over a long period of time.
About raising the age minimum
Evgenia Medvedeva: How many people, so many opinions. I won the championships at the age of 15. No, at 16 and 17. I won my first Grand Prix at 15. Here is my answer. It’s just that people are worried because quadruple jumps are very spectacular, but often lead to injuries.
Evgenia Medvedeva: I want to understand what I want to do. I want to become a person who found himself in life after sports. Like Laysan Utyasheva. Now I have several ways – I want to understand which way is more comfortable for me.
About the most valuable medal
Evgenia Medvedeva: The medal that changed my life is Olympic silver. A medal that is personally important for me, and also for my mother and grandmother – bronze in the Junior Grand Prix Final. Then I had a hip injury, and we were all very worried. Such an important family medal.
Whether she would have changed anything in preparation for the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang.
