Kamila Valieva: “The most important thing is that people come and support us in this difficult time.”
Kamila Valieva about her vacation and return to training.
Now the group of Eteri Tutberidze is holding a training camp in Novogorsk.
Kamila Valieva: I am satisfied with my vacation. I rested for two months and prepared for the state exams for half a month. The very first exam was the most nervous because you don’t know what’s going to happen. English was the first, and there were only two people in the audience and two inspectors. The most nervous exams were English and Russian, and the calmest were Biology and Mathematics. No favors, like everyone else.
It’s hard now, but I hope to get back in shape soon. Before going on the ice, I tried to go to the gym in order to put my body in order at least a little. It seems that in the gym you do everything fine, you run, you breathing is ok, but you go on the ice – still other muscles work. You glide, did a couple of circles – and that’s it, you’re tired, as if you’ve never skated.
As it turned out, I had only a couple of events without spectators – these were the Olympics and the Russian Cup. It is much more pleasant to perform when there are a lot of people, when people are waiting for you, supporting you. The most important thing is that people come and support us in this difficult time.
About plans for the season
Kamila Valieva: Plans for the season – go to competitions, please myself, spectators, coaches and judges with my new programs. We are already back on the ice. I restored all the jump combinations, I’m starting to restore the quads. Two weeks of training have already passed, we are already more or less in shape. I won’t tell about the new program, it’s a secret.
The role of Nastya in the ice show “The Scarlet Flower”? Ice shows are quite an interesting experience. I will skate solo and in a pair with Dima Solovyov. There’s a lot of lifts there. After the first workout, I had a fear of lifts, but then it passed.
