Interview with Nina Mozer. About the ISU international pair skating seminar held in Novogorsk, development of pair skating, Olympics and past season
And much more . . . . .In all countries there are national teams, regardless of the number of people participating in the development of this sport. Just the Chinese are a gifted nation, like all Asians. We arrived to the World Championships, they gave us a magazine, which is usually issued during the championship. We look at the medal contenders in men’s single skating: six photos – all Asians. Same situation in ladies’ skating, except Zagitova. So in the single skating, we have an absolute dominance of Asian athletes, because they have twice more speed fibers than Europeans. If Africans were engaged in figure skating, then it would be even harder for us to compete, as in athletics. They are fast and with lots of stamina, unlike us, I mean not only Russia.
In my life I have seen thousands of competitions, trainings, warm ups, I saw moments of falls, injuries. An Asian falls, gets up, rubs the bruised place and continues to skate. A European from any country falls – minimum sprain, maximum fractures or torn ligaments. We have surprisingly become fragile. Or is it just such genetics.
