— A year ago, Alexei Mishin said that you were looking for yourself and that you were at the crossroads between an athlete and a coach. What changed?
— I haven’t decided yet: I want to both skate and train. Right now I’m not ready to stay on the sidelines and work, I want to stay on the ice.
— Now you work individually with the children. As?
— Yes, a few hours after our interview, there will be a lesson. At the end of September we will go to a master class in China. There was no difficulty, I quickly found an approach to the children. An example for me in coaching is Alexey Nikolaevich. I can calmly approach him for advice and he will always help me. Mishin and I visited many countries, I was an assistant, we developed programs together – this helped me professionally.
—Have you spoken to Mishin about it? Is there an opportunity to try yourself in your group in a new role?
— I said, but now Alexei Nikolaevich has many coaches and fewer athletes. In general, when I go on the ice, I always try to give hints and point out my mistakes. I know I can do it,” Gulyakova, 21, said in an interview with .
Gulyakova is the winner of the 2020 Russian Cup and the bronze medalist of the Grand Prix stage among adults of the Rostelecom Cup (2020).
