“Trusova needs to understand that she needs to move towards art.” Ekaterina Bobrova about the prospects of Alexandra Trusova
Ekaterina Bobrova shared her opinion about the prospects of Alexandra Trusova.
Ekaterina Bobrova: When Sasha was our quad champion, five quads, she had this task in her head. Indeed, it would have bothered her very much in her life if she had not done this. But she did it. At the Olympics. The question “won or didn’t won” this upsets her.
Judging by the trend that she was constantly trying to jump these five quads, she had another task in her head: “I will jump five quads and win the Olympics.” And it should have been: “I want to win the Olympics.” Or: “I want to jump five quads.” There would be slightly different tasks in such case. She went closer to five quads, did it – bravo. But you can’t go further like this.
Well you have this “check” – leave it, you did it, went down in history. Then go and develop in other things: develop choreography, develop skating.
I don’t know if she will be able to restore her quads now or not. It seems to me that this will be like a meme now. But be like Valieva. Skate so that even girls with three quads can’t beat you.
Of course, it will be difficult for Sasha to do this, there is no other like Kamila Valieva and it is not clear when it will be. She needs to understand that she needs to move towards art.
“For obvious reasons she can’t say that publicly, but with her skating Kamila can yell ‘You’re all idiots, what have you done to me? I didn’t deserve this!'” Ekaterina Bobrova about Valieva’s free program
