Kostornaia, Shcherbakova, Trusova trio about their performances in the SP at the Europeans 2020
Alena Kostornaia, Anna Shcherbakova and Alexandra Trusova about their performances in the short program at the European Championships 2020.
Alexandra Trusova: I don’t know (what is the mistake on the double axel – ed.), I just always want to jump the triple axel. Now, after the New Year holidays, I have not restored it well enough.
Maybe I grown by one centimeter during this time. The content that I have now, I gained in two weeks (after the holidays), and the one that I want to show in a free program, we prepared in two days before the start of the European Championships.
Anna Shcherbakova: In general, the skate was about the same as at the Russian Nationals. Some moments I did better there, some here. Today I was nervous, and perhaps this affected. Because it’s important competitions.
I always nervous, sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less. This is normal and helps to show myself better. Well, this is my first senior season. The triple axel is not so ready yet, while I can’t say that I am ready to do it at competitions.
Answering a question about growing up and body changes, Shcherbakova said: “I am growing (physically), but, thank God, there are no leaps. There is no discoordination.”
Alena Kostornaia: I did everything as always, probably I’m satisfied, and most importantly, I coped with the task. The arena is a bit non-standard, but there is nothing wrong with it, the organization is generally good, and the athletes are supported very warmly supported.
After the New Year holidays, I had to re-learned all the jumps, there was a wild discoordination. I went on the ice and did not understand how to skate.
If I grow two and a half centimeters during the holidays, I understand that something is going wrong. It happened now, I grew up, but I do not think that it affected somehow.
