Olympic medalist Panzhinsky said he liked the element of trash talk between Ustyugov and Krasnov in the Czech Republic in roller skiing

2010 Olympics silver medalist in cross-country skiing Alexander Panjinsky told that he liked the backstage fight between Andrey Krasnov and Sergey Ustyugov at the Russian Roller Ski Championship in Khanty-Mansiysk, which contributes to the development of the sport.

The Russian Roller Ski Championship was held in Khanty-Mansiysk from July 24 to 30. Olympic champion Sergei Ustyugov took part in it.

— It’s great that some of the strongest and most popular skiers took part in the roller ski championship. In the absence of foreign summer festivals, as was the case in Norway, for example, this is good competitive practice. They kill two birds with one stone, keep in shape and make cross-country skiing popular with spectators.

I liked the trash talk element, the backstage fight between Krasnov and Ustyugov. I can also note the moment when Ustyugov raced in the semi-finals against Ivan Zhilinsky, who taught Sergei high-speed roller skis. All of this draws attention to skiing: many who weren’t interested before start talking about it. Therefore, the fact that our best skiers participate in roller ski competitions only stimulates the development of this sport.

It’s great that even in summer the skis remain in sight. Over the past two years, skiers have come to love bright characters, as the heroes of the series, and fans don’t want their favorite “characters” to disappear for six months. It’s good that there are events like this. They need to be covered even more, broadcast on television, and not just on streaming platforms. It will be spectacular and contribute to the development of skiing in these difficult times,” Panzhinsky told .
