“Very high risk of injury.  » Figure skater Semenenko talks about Malinin’s quad Axel

Figure skater Yevgeny Semenenko who won the Russian championship in Chelyabinsk, said that doing a quadruple axel was unprofitable due to the risk of injury.

Previously, Ilya Malinin won the Grand Prix final in single skating. The 19-year-old athlete became the first figure skater in history to cleanly execute a quadruple axel in a short program, and in the free skate he jumped a quadruple loop for the first time in his career. The athlete was born in the United States into the family of Russian figure skaters Tatyana Malinina and Roman Skornyakov.

— You can target all elements. But I’m sticking to my program. Each of us can do it, but it requires preparation and study. This jump is simply not profitable. There is a very high risk of injury for the athlete,” reports the correspondent of , according to Semenenko’s words.

Figure skater Pierre Gumennik also talked about the quadruple axel.

— There is room to grow, others need to be sharpened first. Many other jumps could be more stable and would earn more points, he noted.

On Friday, Semenenko won the Russian championship in Chelyabinsk with 294.75 points. Vladislav Dikidzhi took second place (293.74), bronze went to Gumennik (292.42). Semenenko became a two-time champion of Russia.
