“To make comments that it’s time for someone to finish, for example, the same Zagitova, in my opinion, is simply unethical. On the contrary, I wish her longevity in sports, ”a Sport Express specialist quotes.
At the same time, he noted that the Russian woman needs to change her attitude to the profession and not immediately give up when she fails to get into the national team. In his opinion, the continuation of Zagitova’s career will largely depend on her motivation and desire.
“She is no worse than Yuzuru Hanyu, a successful long-liver in our difficult sport. She is talented, beautiful, it’s just nice to look at her, ”Harutyunyan added.
On December 13, Zagitova announced that she was suspending participation in competitions. She is the Olympic champion, as well as the winner of the world and European championships.
The athlete admitted to coach Eteri Tutberidze that she misses the competition.
