Olympic champion Bobrova told how she almost divorced her husband because of the organization of a joint show

Olympic figure skating champion in team competitions Ekaterina Bobrova told how they had difficulties organizing a joint show with her husband Andrei Deputat.

— Andrey is still a professional figure skater and I had no doubts about our success. Although my husband now listens to our conversation and comments, “We almost got divorced!”

We have different skating techniques, and it turned out to be quite difficult. When choosing which sport Andrei and I would compete in as amateurs, we chose ice dancing over pair skating. I understood: I would jump double without problem, and I would do any support. But the program as a whole is unlikely to be as interesting and spectacular as the rules of ice dancing allow. Andrey agreed with my arguments, we began to stage and I, as a director and dancer in the past, gained good momentum, forgetting that Andrey’s technique was ultimately not not specific to dance. It took me a while to understand and accept this, and it immediately became easier to work,” RT quotes Bobrova.

Bobrova, who competed in ice dancing with Dmitri Solovyov, won gold at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi in the team tournament, as well as silver at the 2018 Games in Pyeongchang.
