Oleg Vasiliev suggested that Julia Lipnitskaya should switch to pairs
Famous figure skating coach Oleg Vasiliev made an official proposal to Julia Lipnitskaya. He suggested that 18-year-old athlete should start a career in pair skating.
He thought that in this way she would be able to cope with the psychological trauma received after the Olympics in Sochi.
In my opinion, the Olympic Games in Sochi was the peak of her sports career. The program, which Ilia Averbukh did for her, skating, that she showed, her red dress, which is remembered all over the world. And then Julia started to have changes in her body: she began to grow, there was a hormonal explosion, and she didn’t cope with his weight.
Now Julia looks great, she lost weight and got back in shape. But the psychological trauma received in the post-Olympic season, when she lost everything possible (ranked ninth in the championship of Russia), is still exists. Julia hasn’t coped with it yet. – Vasiliev said
He also explained that he knows how to help Julia. She needs to try herself in pair skating.
With this publication I make an official proposal to Julia Lipnitskaya to find herself, returning to the top of figure skating not as a singles skater, but as a pair skater. She has all characteristics that allow to think about it.
