“Sasha wanted five quadruple jumps, she did them. She should be satisfied.” Tarasova and other coaches about Alexandra Trusova
Russian coaches about Alexandra Trusova’s five guads and second place at the Olympics 2022.
Honorary President of the Russian Figure Skating Federation (FFKR) Valentin Piseev spoke about the reaction of Alexandra Trusova to the silver of the 2022 Olympics.
Valentin Piseev: Sasha is a maximalist with a steel character who has already created a history at the Olympic Games. Who can repeat it?
What she said after the performance is emotions. She is actually a very emotional girl. Sasha wanted to win gold so much, but it didn’t work out.
After such stress, it is especially worth considering that it always works on maximum. This is an emotional outburst that will soon be forgotten.
She won’t go anywhere, of course. The country needs her, the world figure skating need her.
Tatiana Tarasova: You need to be close to Sasha to support her. Can’t they make her shut up? There’s a whole team there.
Sasha wanted five quadruple jumps, she did them. She should be satisfied.
How can Trusova survive this? How old are you (referring to a journalist)? 23?
If at 23 you don’t know how to survive it, then how can she know at 17? She just needs to cry.
Inna Goncharenko: Sasha fulfilled her dream “I want five quads”. It was colossal, she scored crazy points in technique. I want to congratulate Sasha on the fact that her dream came true, it was wonderful.
Alexei Urmanov: I would also like to congratulate Trusova. She did great: five quadruple jumps is a record and worth a lot! I don’t even know what is better – a silver medal or this. I think it’s equivalent. Probably, Sasha was advised to make her program easier for the sake of reliability, but she decided to move forward and only forward.
Trusova is upset about silver? What solder does not dream of becoming a general? She probably thinks it’s unfair. No need to stop, Sasha can compete at the next Olympics.
Evgeni Plushenko: Sashenka, you made history, 5 quads, whatever one may say, it’s cool! You once again proved to the whole world that you are a Russian rocket! Not everything worked out, but I’m glad that your dream came true!
I am more than sure that this is definitely not the last Olympic Games for Sasha and Kamila! It is very hard to look at their tears, not the tears of joy, but… Never give up.
P.S. Today we have experienced a historic moment and the evolution of the Olympic Games! In 2010 in Vancouver, I said that the future belongs to quadruple jumps not only for men, but also for women, I was right!
I’m even afraid to imagine what jumping content will be at the 2026 and 2030 Olympics!
