Yana Rudkovskaya: “I think Kamila needs to lose weight. Discussing this topic is not about discussing appearance, but about discussing the suitability of qualities for the chosen profession.”
Yana Rudkovskaya about Kamila Valieva’s shape at the test skates.
Valieva doesn’t seem to be in her best shape – is it because of the upcoming trial?
Yana Rudkovskaya: I think Kamila just needs to lose weight. I want to see the Kamila she used to be. There’s an obvious weight gain, and I know that girls don’t like to talk about it, it’s hard to maintain weight, but it’s necessary. As for the trial – no matter what you wish for from it, it’s beyond our control.
Maybe that’s why the motivation isn’t there to maintain weight.
Yana Rudkovskaya: But it’s necessary! What about the others? There’s a face, a brand – Kamila Valieva. I want it to last as long as possible. Everything that seems impossible is possible. Although we talked to Lena Radionova, and we agreed that Kamila has become very sexy. For life in general, Kamila’s current form is great. But for sports, different aesthetics and fitness are required.
Yana Rudkovskaya has commented on the appearance of figure skaters. Earlier, the wife of Evgeni Plushenko stated that Kamila Valieva needs to lose weight.
“Yesterday I attended the test skates of the Russian national figure skating team, and I shared my impressions of the first day in an interview, which I rarely do. As expected, my interview turned into quotes, and the internet is buzzing.
For me, aesthetics and fitness matter in figure skating, I’m sorry. And when you sit and watch the girls perform, and everyone around talks only about this, I couldn’t disagree with them. There is a weight for sports and a weight for life.
And when people tell me that I also need to lose weight, I take note of that. And I agree. My weight until I was 45 years old was 51 kg with a height of 168 cm. I’m now 48 years old, and my weight is 55 kg.
I’m fighting to reduce it, but it’s currently stagnant. I’ve been fighting my whole life with both sports and diets. So I definitely know that you can lose weight when you really need to.
It’s easy for girls and young women to lose weight and maintain their figure. After 35, metabolism slows down, and staying in the same shape as when you were 25 is hard work.
And I know for sure that nothing is impossible. People don’t usually talk about this out loud, and I’m not used to talking behind people’s backs.
There are certain professions that require specific qualities. In sports, this includes the state of your body and muscles. Discussing this topic is not about discussing appearance as such, but about discussing the suitability of qualities for the chosen profession,” – she said.
Kamila Valieva: “The events that have happened to me have made me more mature. If you can learn to find the positive in everything, life becomes better and more interesting.”
