“Valeriy absolutely doesn’t want to skate, convincing him otherwise was completely impossible, although he had no significant reasons for all of this.” Anjelika Krylova on Kaganovskaia/Angelopol split up
Anjelika Krylova about Valeriy Angelopol – he “absolutely does not want to skate.”
Angelopol is the winner of the Russian Grand Prix final in ice dancing. He performed with Vasilisa Kaganovskaia, but their duo has split up.
“It was Valeriy’s initiative, I was absolutely against it, and so was Vasilisa. Today there were representatives of our federation at our rink, and we discussed all of this. Valeriy absolutely does not want to skate, convincing him otherwise turned out to be completely impossible, although he had no significant reasons for all of this, they were excellently prepared for the season, and I have reason to think that it could have been successful for them.
At a certain point, Valeriy started saying that he was ready to skate with Vasilisa on the condition of a signed contract specifying certain financial terms. This was completely unacceptable, and of course, she did not want to sign anything.
We will look for a partner for Vasilisa; she remains in my group. On the one hand, I am very upset, on the other hand, I am even glad that this happened right now.
The conflict situation was created out of nothing, it was impossible to talk. Today everyone understood that.
We have had similar situations before, but we managed to save and reconcile them. But if a person doesn’t want to, then he doesn’t want to. Vasilisa stays with us in the group; I will support her, and I wish Valeriy good luck, I wish him to follow his ambitions, achieve success, but still decide for himself what is more important to him – sports or something else,” said Krylova
