Canadian Bratsan Orser, who has trained figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva for the past two years, told why the athlete decided to return to the group of coach Eteri Tutberidze.
According to him, Medvedeva informed him of her decision a few days ago. Orser believes that the reason for the departure of the champion is the coronavirus pandemic.
“Both me and Zhenya understood how important it was to be able to work with a coach in real time. The need to study remotely became a serious challenge for both of us … The only problem that we could not cope with was a pandemic. ” RT…
Orser stressed that he would support any decision by Medvedeva, with whom he had a trusting relationship.
The Canadian added that the athlete is driven by the desire to skate, and for this she needs a coach.
On September 16, it became known about Medvedeva’s return to Tutberidze, from which she left with a scandal in 2018.
From the point of view of the image, the reunification is beneficial to both parties. After the scandalous departure of Alexandra Trusova and Alena Kostornaya to the Angela Plushenko Academy, Tutberidze freed up resources to work with another star athlete, experts say.
