Post-Soviet countries are interested in students of “Angels Plushenko”, says Skobrev

Post-Soviet countries are interested in academy figure skaters Evgenia Plushenko said Academy physical trainer Angela Plushenko Ivan Skobrev .

Plushenko said earlier that her figure skaters Veronika Zhilina and Sofia Titova were unfairly prosecuted at the Russian Junior Championships in Perm. Plushenko said after the tournament ended that many skaters from his academy would most likely compete for other countries due to biased refereeing in domestic competitions.

– Evgeny Viktorovich is always emotional in relation to his athletes. Is it possible for his guys to play for other countries? Certainly. It is a global name, there are many who wish to have the Plushenko brand in their composition. There is at least an interest from the countries of the post-Soviet space. But it is possible that there are other options.

Another question is whether Zhenya himself and his athletes want to transfer? I do not think so. They have the most luxurious conditions, the ice rink and the teaching staff. The peculiarity of the Plushenko school is that, for the most part, it exists at the expense of sponsorship. Yes, there is state support, but still. Therefore, of course, I don’t want to accept what is happening now. I wouldn’t want Plushenko’s athletes to go anywhere. I want them to perform here and be admitted to the world stage as soon as possible,” Skobrev told

Zhilina took second place in the Russian Championship among juniors, Titova became 4th. The winner was Alina Gorbacheva from Tver, coached by Sofia Fedchenko.
