European long jump indoor runner-up Yolanda Chen backed figure skater’s decision Alexandra Trousova compete in athletics.
On June 3, VFLA confirmed ‘s information that 2022 Olympics silver medalist Alexandra Trusova will participate in Moscow Week of Athletics in the long jump discipline. Jump day is scheduled for June 9.
– Amazing girl. And to be honest, I wasn’t surprised at all when I found out that she wanted to compete in the long jump. Of all our skaters, Sasha is probably the most athletic. He is very fond of physical exercises, he does a lot of complex elements. He jumps high, it’s good that you don’t always see single skaters,” quotes RT Chen.
Trusova is a 2021 World Championship bronze medalist, double European Championship bronze medalist (2020, 2022), double junior world champion (2018, 2019). At the 2022 Olympics, she was the first in history to be able to perform five quadruple jumps in a free program without falling.
