Three-time Olympic champion Alexander Bolshunov explained why he decided not to retire after a back injury.
– It seems that fate constantly throws difficulties at you – oh, did you succeed last time?! It’s up to you, try again like this. Did you succeed yet?! Well, here’s another one. It’s a certain challenge. It’s difficult, but you have to overcome everything and look forward. Now I’m even wondering how I’m going to get out of this situation this time and get through the season. Many people dream that I will finish. But no. You won’t wait. Until I brought such joy to others,” Bolshunov said, as quoted by Championship.
Bolshunov is 26 years old, a three-time Olympic champion, a four-time silver medalist and a two-time bronze medalist. The skier also became a world champion once, a world championship silver medalist six times, a bronze medalist once, and won the overall World Cup and the Tour de Ski multi-day race twice each.
