“Circus”: Zhulin – about the World Cup without Russian skaters

MOSCOW, Mar 26, Sergey Pogrebnyak. Silver and bronze medalist of the Olympic Games, now coach Alexander Zhulin said that he does not watch the World Figure Skating Championships, which takes place in French Montpellier, due to the absence of Russian athletes. Earlier, the International Skating Union (ISU), against the backdrop of events in Ukraine, suspended athletes from Russia from competitions under its auspices, including from the World Championship in figure skating. “Why couldn't Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Sizeron not update the world record at the tournament without Russian athletes? The world championship without Russians is a real circus! I don't watch the world championship on principle. I'm in Saransk now and just yesterday I watched the jumping tournament at the Cup of Channel One. Our girls jumped so many quadruple jumps there that they won’t jump at the world championships in 30 years, “Zhulin said. “Wean the Russians from all competitions wow – that looks really stupid. Politics is politics, but why ban everything? So, out of principle, I won’t watch the World Championships until we are allowed back,” added Zhulin. On Friday, the French Papadakis and Sizeron updated their own world record in rhythm dance, set in February at the Beijing Olympics. In 2021, the winners of the World Cup in ice dancing were the Russians Victoria Sinitsina and Nikita Katsalapov.
