Kovalev: “I tried the quadruple axel, it was a very unpleasant fall”

Figure skater Artem Kovalev admitted to Sport24 that he tried to achieve a quadruple axel.

– Do you have a favorite element?

– Triple axle. I don’t know what could be better.

Have you tried the quad?

– Tried. It was a very bad fall. So I don’t know how to do it. And the fact that my triple axel is the coolest guy, a lot of people have told me. Nobody expected me to break it twice in the Grand Prix final. I don’t know what happened – I didn’t choke, I had strength. Apparently, the answer will remain on Yubileiny ice.

The most amazing thing is that after the competition I have not picked a single axel yet – I do everything in training.

– What is the most difficult stunt you have done in your life?

— Triple Axel-Oiler-Quad Salchow. I haven’t done it yet, just tried – a quarter underrotation and a drop. Lack of speed after exit.

Kovalev took 10th place in the last Russian Grand Prix final.
