“We have always performed for the audience in the first place.” Ukrainian ice dancers Oleksandra Nazarova and Maksym Nikitin retired from competitive sports
Ukrainian ice dancers Oleksandra Nazarova and Maksym Nikitin announced their retirement from competitive sports.
Oleksandra Nazarova: Max and I worked together for almost 20 years! Those were great times. There were many funny moments, many times it was hard and even painful! But all these 20 years have been the best! We have always performed for the audience in the first place. We always wanted to show you new elements, and we always tried to make our programs fun and interesting! We are very grateful to everyone who has been with us on this long journey. And thanks to all those who supported and helped us! For such a long time, there were a lot of these people. And a big thank you to all the fans. We wouldn’t be able to do anything without you. We have decided to end our sports career. But we do not want to finish with figure skating! We really want to continue to work and please you, but not as athletes!
