Coach-choreographer Mikhailov shared his impressions of the triumphant performance of Russian figure skaters

Coach-choreographer, director of ice shows Nikita Mikhailov, in a conversation with FAN, shared his impressions of the free program by Russian figure skaters at the Beijing Olympics.

The whole country watched today’s competitions on ice with bated breath, the intrigue was preserved to the last. So, athletes Anna Shcherbakova and Alexandra Trusova return from the Olympics with medals.

But Kamilla Valieva was not lucky this time, she was in fourth place. In turn, the interlocutor of FAN Mikhailov appreciated the performance of the girls.

“It’s pretty short here. Anna is amazing! Trusova – achieved what she was going for: five quadruple jumps! Forever history! Camilla – very much believed that, despite all the beatings, she would have enough strength and she would survive. Unfortunately, this did not happen, ”said the skater.

By the way, for the first time in the history of figure skating, Alexandra Trusova presented five quadruple jumps in one program, which no athlete had previously been able to do. But Valieva’s performance did not go well from the first minutes, during the program she fell several times. The performance of the figure skater could have been affected by the recent doping scandal, the central figure of which was the 15-year-old athlete. After this incident, Trusova and Shcherbakova were tested for doping, and the tests of both skaters turned out to be clean.
