Evgeni Plushenko: “Trusova studied one system for a long time, while mine was completely different. I never scold children or insult them "
The coach of the Russian figure skater Alexandra Trusova, Evgeni Plushenko, shared his expectations from her performance at the World Championships and spoke about the character of his student.
“Our main goal at the World Cup is to perform well. Sasha must do what she can. This is her first Senior World Championship, but we are not competing with the Japanese or our compatriots. Our goal is for her to compete with herself.
Previously, she always tried to prove that she could perform quadruples, ultra-si as much as possible. In my opinion, she doesn't need to focus on them. She already knows how to jump. The main thing is to do your job. We worked a lot on her skating, interpretation, artistry. She learned to feel music differently. Artistry in figure skating is very important.
Sasha is a very strong person. She never wants to put off anything until tomorrow, she wants to do it now. And she works an awful lot. From a sports point of view, of course, it's great that she does her best in every workout and wants to be number one. But you have to restrain her, she wants to do more and faster all the time. There is no need to rush, she is in puberty. This also needs to be taken into account.
Sasha studied one system for a long time, while mine was completely different. I never scold children or insult them, ”Plushenko said in an interview with Dagens Nyheter.
Previously, Trusova trained with Eteri Tutberidze.
The World Figure Skating Championships will be held from 24 to 28 March in Stockholm, Sweden.
