In life prefer to set goals and achieve them, while the affect of a dream can not. I know what I dream about: never getting tired and never had injuries. But I know that this does not happen. To retire from the sport? Honestly, I have never even thoughts were not.

Interview With Trudovoy

Another well-known Russian figure skater Alexander Trusov gave the first big interview. 15-year-old athlete spoke with journalist Maria Team, affecting, in particular, the subject of the quadruple jumps that she performs better than anyone in the world.

“I’ve learned not everyone jumps. But when it happens, I will improve in all other respects: and in jumping so that they were cleaner, and, of course, in skating and spins. Triple Axel we teach, and the Quad loop is the only Quad that was left. I have never tried it. We first look at my triple and decide what we will learn next. Lutz and flip are very similar, so after Lutz flip was easier to learn, and the toe loop is the easiest. A triple Axel jump and I with a fishing rod, and without. I’m not fearless, I fear not only quadruple jump, and so many things frighten me in life,” said the double world champion among juniors.

Trusov also commented on the sensational story with a single coat of 12-year-old Maxim Belyavsky told that there is nothing impossible to repeat the jump without a net.

“I think a five-fold jump to jump really, but there’s another Quad and a triple Axel, so we’ll see. I hope that by the start of next season will jump Axel. I really need it, because a Quad in the short is prohibited. Three quads in one program to do it, I have never worked, but I want to try four,” said Trusov.

Skater also said that her older rival Evgeny Medvedev and Alina Sagitova in the past helped her to learn new jumps.

“When Jack was in the group, she always told jumping. Said that it is necessary to work constantly, no matter tired or not, you have to find strength. Sagitova tells you how to jump cascade with rittberger. I want to be like yourself. Of course, there are skaters that I really admire. I always looked at Medvedev, as she is constantly working on her character. Really like Nathan Chen — he always teaches new, more complicated. And of course, Aliona Savchenko — whatever she lost, she went ahead and eventually won,” — said Trusov.
