Un dia de practica en san Diego
Adopted into the ShibSib fam 😍⛸😭 Dreams really do come true!! Got to meet my favorite Olympians today after changing my train ticket back from Baltimore to an hour earlier, braving the New York traffic and rain, and getting there 5 minutes before the event ended only to be told by security that it was over, but told Alex and Maia about what I went through to see them and was allowed a hot sec with them to get this pic 😅
Evgenia, how do you feel now? We were worried about you.
Evgenia: Now I'm fine, thank you. The fact is that this did not happen for the first time, it seems like this is my fate.
Did it affect your skating? Maybe it adds to your adrenaline?
Evgenia: I would not say that injuries help me to skate, but I didn't really think about it. It distracts, of course, you think it was this jump that I fell on and you start to be careful. But on the other hand, I am an athlete, so I have to go on the ice and fight. I couldn't let my partner down. We spent a lot of energy on preparing for this competition. We worked a lot, and I couldn't just give up.
This season you have a new coach - Maxim Trankov. Please tell us how your collaboration with him is developing?
Vladimir: We like the way we, with Maxim, have the training process and the competitions. This is what we wanted and searched for last year; our work is going much better. This (the Grand Prix event in Moscow) is already our third competition in the season and we had some developments from the start, how to prepare for competitions. So, we are moving in the right direction. From competition to competition, we improve, we add to the skating and in the evaluations. For the time being we like everything.
How difficult is it for you to work with Maxim, considering you were rivals before, and now your former rival has become your coach?
Evgenia: There were no problems with this. We asked Maxim to be our coach ourselves. That means, we have already known how to conduct ourselves with him.
He is a busy man with a tight agenda of his own projects. How do you handle it?
Vladimir: He plans all other activities after our training and he spends with us every practice, every warm-up, and his coaching activity is, of course, a priority. We just have adjusted our training schedule a little: we finish the first practice before afternoon and the second one after lunch. And the evening is free, we are recovering, doing other procedures, working in the gym, that is, already off the ice. And Maxim goes about his business.
