Russian biathlete Irina Kazakevich told that she followed the show with Kamila Valieva , Alexandra Troussova And Eugene Medvedeva and considers figure skating to be a more media-oriented sport than biathlon.
— Do you follow the world of figure skating?
— I mostly watch interviews with figure skaters. It seems to me that figure skating is a more media-oriented sport. There and in artistic gymnastics, I noticed that they prepared for competitions for a month or two, and then lived an ordinary life, took part in shows. And you ask yourself: where can I find the time to just be at home? Our sport is such that you train for seven months, compete for four and rest for a month. And you constantly stay in shape.
And they can record interviews, attend certain programs. And I pay more attention to their performance outside of sport. When I can watch TV, when he’s in training camp (smiles), yes, I can watch some performances.
— Which figure skater is the most interesting to watch?
— Among the young people who are currently performing, I can’t even name names. Naturally, Kamila Valieva and especially Alexandra Trusova – she has her own unique style. I followed Evgenia Medvedeva, but now, as far as I know, she has finished her professional career.
Once I was on Red Square and walked past the ice rink, and Medvedev was announced there. She just performed her act for people, can you imagine? I think, wow.
In addition, I watched all the episodes of Nikita Nagorny’s show “Sports Exchange” with figure skaters. Especially with Mark Kondratyuk, it’s a cool episode, I liked it, ”Kazakevich told .
