Olympic champion in men’s singles skating Alexei Yagudin commented on Anna Shcherbakova’s free skating performance at the World Championships in Stockholm.
“I’ll say more, we know what difficulties Anya went through during the season, how hard it was to recover from the coronavirus. Athletes are not the kind of people who complain about their condition. Once you’ve arrived, come out and do it. The quad flip was not as stable in training. There was a fall. But what defines a champion? After him she got up. It seems to me that there is no doubt that she deserved gold with her torments, difficult recovery. She proved that she won all tournaments for a reason this season. This is some kind of miracle, ”Yagudin said on the air of Channel One.
Earlier it was reported that Russian figure skaters took the entire podium at the World Cup.
