“I think if the social network had previously been as well developed as it is now, in the days of Plushenko and Yagudin passions would not be less. To some extent, the hype around care from Medvedeva Evgenia Tutberidze is good. She lost the Olympics and all this season all lost, but remains in the top news. Largely because of this interest,” said Averbukh in an interview with “Business Petersburg”.

Skater Evgenia Medvedeva left coach Eteri Tutberidze in 2018 and the beginning of cooperation with the canadian specialist Brian Orser.

Earlier, the skater Medvedev said that he never thought about quitting the sport.
