Director of the Sambo-70 Sports and Education Center Renat Laishev commented on the bronze medal of the Russian figure skater Alexandra Trusova at the World Championships in Stockholm.
“In spite of everything, we are also very happy for Sasha Trusova! And in general, she is our girl. Firstly, it officially continues to give results for Sambo-70. I know her very well as a person. Where is she without Sambo-70? She cannot live without her, and we always wait for her at school, love and adore her. She is our girl, we are very happy for her! Half a word from her – and she, as before, will again be in our team, and no one will reproach her with a single bad word. This is necessary for e1’s benefit: it will definitely have higher places. Because today in women’s figure skating, students Eteri Tutberidze and the Sambo-70 school set the tone! ” – quotes Laishev Sport24.
In May 2020, Trusova left Sambo-70, where she trained with Eteri Tutberidze, to the academy of the two-time Olympic champion Evgeni Plushenko.
Earlier in “Sambo-70” they reacted to the unsuccessful hire of Trusova in the short program.
