Ustyugov is a talented skier, nature has endowed him with good health, but in recent years there have been many serious injuries that do not allow him to fully train. We see that Sergei’s level is decreasing more and more. I would like to see his enchanting sprint races, which will add excitement and interest to our sport, ”Borodavko told .
