Figure skater Matvey Vetlugin after skating the short program in the Russian Grand Prix final, he said that in the free program he would try to perform a quadruple lutz.
The Russian Grand Prix Final will take place on March 4 and 5 in Saint Petersburg. On Saturday, Vetlugin scored 77.36 points for the short program.
– Hard. I haven’t ridden first in a while. A slightly different six-minute warm-up. I don’t know how to rate. The judges today estimated at 77.36.
Why did you give away a mushroom-shaped toy? I think I said many times about the mushrooms, it was so puffy. You might think I use them all the time. But it’s not.
I don’t know about Axel. A button on my body flew off just at the entrance to the axel. I didn’t think about the jump, but about the fact that the other two wouldn’t fly away. I rode on a bare side today.
We had a practice session. It was hard to get used to (a small area). Where are we going? Let’s not exaggerate, shall we? They gave us so much space.
Quad Lutz tomorrow? I will take risks. And what to lose? I have already lost 20 points, tomorrow I will have to regain, – the correspondent of reports the words of Vetlugin.
