“It’s hard to put yourself in their shoes. I would have killed myself against the wall. Evgenia Medvedeva – on the suspension of Russian athletes

Double world figure skating champion Eugenie Medvedeva On the airwaves of the YouTube channel, Forbes shared his opinion on the prospects for the sport in the context of the suspension of international tournaments.

What will happen to figure skating? Will it be locally Russian?

For now, yes, it will be local. Many Russian competitions like the Grand Prix are planned. So the guys are going to fight inside the country. But we have competition, God forbid, so it won’t be boring.

– Do you communicate with the guys from the national team?

– Yes, but I communicate with them not as an athlete with athletes, but as with friends. Therefore, we do not particularly touch on the topic of sports.

Aren’t they demotivated now?

– I have not asked. But if you put yourself in their shoes, it’s hard. I would have killed myself against the wall,” Medvedeva said.

The International Skating Union (ISU) suspended Russian and Belarusian athletes from competitions under its auspices in the spring due to the situation in Ukraine.
