Interviews with Elizaveta Tuktamysheva, Alexei Yagudin, Anna Shcherbakova, autographs, Victoria Sinitsina and Nikita Katsalapov – April 1, 2022

The show ends, Anna Shcherbakova stays. The Olympic champion and world champion turned out to be one of the skaters in the Megasport bowl and gave autographs for a very long time. The 18-year-old star of “Crystal” paid the most attention to fans. Other athletes paid the most attention to journalists.

Below are the main interviews from the show “Lovers of Figure Skating”.


Yagudin gives advice to skaters and jokes about his old age

Only one question does not leave me all day. What are three people doing on this holiday of mischief, grace, youth: Tatiana Totmyanina, Maxim Marinin and Alexei Yagudin? And so – the mood is great.

I am really an old sick person, and commenting on the performances of our Russian athletes, you are in your position, but not with them. But globally you live with them, they become a part of your life. Given that I have been commenting for many years: skaters are my closest relatives. And here, on this show, there is an opportunity to get away from this excitement, waiting for grades and just calmly continue to communicate with the guys.

– Many girls end their careers early. And we need to do something further. How difficult is it? What would you advise them?
– When my wife, having moved from Perm to St. Petersburg, wore the same shoes with her mother, there was nothing more. When my mother came and there was a default, and she came with one butter and a loaf of bread and said, “Daughter, I don’t understand what’s going on…” And now one of them is an Olympic champion. It seems to me that in this life a person who wants to learn something will always learn. A person who wants to achieve something in life will always achieve it. And our beautiful girls, who make history from one season to another, they will find something to do and will be as bright as in the field of sports.

Sinitsina and Katsalapov on cancellation of World Cup and rally in Luzhniki

Nikita Katsalapov: We are ready to answer all questions about the future, just nothing depends on us.

This spring we are invited to the tour of Eteri Tutberidze, we will perform on the show in honor of the anniversary of Tatiana Tarasova on April 15 and 16, and we can be seen in several cities in the tour of Ilya Averbukh. We hope that all this will take place and there will be no transfers.

As for next season, we still want to relax, but, of course, we plan to ride further. We have a lot of wings on the ice now, we get a lot of pleasure from what we do.

“We want to relax” does not mean that we take a break next season. It’s just April, and we usually take a break after the World Cup. I meant it.

It is quite possible [что на наше решение о будущем повлияет непонятная ситуация с тем, пустят ли российских фигуристов на международные соревнования в следующем сезоне]. This is a very serious topic. It may seem from the outside that we already have most of the titles, but we have a desire to try our hand. But it can affect a lot now, including this decision.

– Nikita, how did you react to the removal of the Russian national team?
Katsalapov: I do not know how to soften this. (Pause). “Sadness.” I will say that it was a “sorrow”. I did not watch any rental at the World Cup, did not watch.

“Victoria, have you been watching?”
Sinicina: No. Only once did I hear someone on the bus discuss the estimates, and so she knew nothing.

– Aren’t you afraid of the consequences of attending the rally in Luzhniki? FINA has opened a disciplinary case against swimmer Yevgeny Rylov.
Katsalapov: I do not know how to answer this question. We didn’t think about it. There are probably fears if they can do something bad to us. But, to be honest, I didn’t know about this situation [с Рыловым].


Tuktamyshev and the show Tutberidze, Plushenko, Averbukh

– There will be more shows. I will ride with Ilya Averbukh, Yevgeny Plushenko and Eteri Tutberidze. So far, such a plan.

– Do you have any thoughts about next season? Are you getting ready?
– Let’s ride.

– If we talk about further life. Are you making plans?
– Do you think you can make plans? (Smiles). Haha, no. I live today. It is impossible to make plans.


Kondratyuk and quadruplets in the dark

– Everything is done at a great level, the fans are warm. This is especially nice at this difficult time. Glad to be a part of this.

“Mark, how hard is it to do quadruplets in such darkness?”
– I do not know. This is already common.

– In what shows will we see you in the near future?
– The day after tomorrow in St. Petersburg and April 15 in Moscow on the show of Ilya Averbukh, the 16th in St. Petersburg. That’s right. About the rest I can not say yet.

Sports couples Anastasia Mishina / Alexander Gallyamov and Alexander Boykov / Dmitry Kozlovsky also talked to journalists. Video of this conversation is available on the figurine channel.
