Tripping on the Podium
Are Russians putting too much pressure on their wonderbabies?
After watching a tv report about Sotnikova and Tuktamisheva (here's the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oD9Fo...1&feature=plcp), I'm wondering if the russians aren't putting to much pressure on their phenomenal young skaters. Sotnikova and Tuktamisheva are still kids and all this expectation may work against them. I would like to read other opinions about this matter.
NO, it is the Russian way. This pressure and the mental toughness of the Russian young skaters are at the root of their success. It is very likely that Tuktamisheva will win Olympic Gold and retire in the style of Sarah Hughes and Tara Lipinski.
leave no stone unturned
Thanx for vid.
If Tuktamisheva wins the Olympic Gold she will have made the same senior route Yuna did, competing in one olympiad, do you say Yuna was such a flash like Lipinski and Hughes?
