Two-time world figure skating champion Irina Slutskaya expressed her opinion that Alexandra Trusova won the bronze at the 2020 World Figure Skating Championships in Stockholm, Sweden.
“The Russian pedestal is just fantastic. Before the World Championships, everyone said that the entire pedestal was ours. But then no one expected and did not believe that Trusova would be able to cling to the top three. As a result, Sasha pulled herself together and performed well, like all our girls. In this respect, this is an amazing championship – we fought and made mistakes, but we reached the end. Trusova’s third place is a fantasy and a miracle. Thanks to the rivals – just everyone got there. Not a single favorite skated cleanly. This is unique, this has never happened. If Rika Kihira and the other skaters resisted, it would be more difficult. But they all got it, “- quotes the words of Slutskaya” Championship “.
Trusova, who took 12th place after the short program, declared five quadruple jumps for an arbitrary, but allowed falls when performing two of them, but despite this, the judges rated her performance at 152.38 points, she scored 217.20 points on the sum of two runs , which allowed him to become the bronze medalist of the world championship.
