Eter Tutberidze, the coach of Kamila Valijeva, a 15-year-old superstar who suffered from doping, gave harsh feedback to his defender after the failure.
Russian Minister of Sports Oleg Matytsin has urged the coach to refrain from making “hasty assessments” Ether Etherberidzen methods.
Tutberidze gave harsh feedback to his 15-year-old protégé at the center of the doping court after the Beijing Olympics freestyle program, figure skater Kamila Valijevalle.
Valijeva led the race after the short program, but failed badly in her free program and collapsed in fourth place.
“Why did you give up? Explain to me why. Why did you stop fighting? You gave it up after the Axel jump. Why, ”Tutberidze asked the shocked Valiyev.
German chairman of the IOC of the International Olympic Committee Thomas Bach described the events as freshly chilling and very disturbing.
Russian the sports minister, on the other hand, said coaches ’working methods can, of course, be discussed, but“ this should probably not be done in public, and in any case when the athlete and his coaching team are in such a state ”.
“In commenting on this case, I think we need to be more fair, more respectful and not make such hasty assessments,” the minister said.
Matytsin shared his views in an interview with Tassi, a Russian state news agency, reported by sports media Inside the Games.
Women have taken a double victory in Olympic figure skating Anna Štčerbakova and Aleksandra Trusova are, like Valijeva, Tutberidze. They are 17 years old.
“Tutberidze’s method is based on the fact that when a woman has not yet grown into a woman, it is easier to do those rotations with a smaller body weight and a narrow one, and it then encourages her to be there at an even younger age,” Kiira Korpi said after the women’s leisure program with graduates of Yle’s sports studio.
