“Chania became the most valuable skater, and everything is logical here - he went through more than one Olympic cycle, becoming a two-time Olympic champion. But with whom did he compete, and why was Alina Zagitova not in this nomination? Its absence in the top three nominees at least causes laughter, ”quotes Yagudin TASS.

Zagitova is the Olympic champion in 2018. In December 2019, the skater announced the suspension of her sports career.

It was previously reported that Yuzuru Hanyu was recognized as the most valuable skater of the season according to ISU.
