The meeting between the President of Russia and the winners of the 2022 Olympics took place in the Kremlin in April 2022.
You said something to him privately What was it?
Mark Kondratiuk: I think it was a personal monologue.
Were you flattered that the President himself was awarding you? Did you feel any responsibility, recognition?
Mark Kondratiuk: I felt a great responsibility, especially when I had to give a speech. It was very scary. My heart was pounding very hard. At the beginning, I started saying something different from what I had planned.
And only when I made eye contact with Nastya Mishina and Kamila Valieva, with whom we won the Olympic team event, I started looking at them one by one, focusing, they were looking at me, and that brought me back to reality a little bit.
