Figure skater Julia Lipnitskaya spent their holidays in Cyprus and has recently started to prepare for the new season at the sport in Novogorske. About what they saw during the rest of his hobbies, as well as a new stage of preparation for the upcoming season athlete told FFKKR site.
- Julia, than it is now engaged in the collection?
- The collection began at the end of last week, on June 7. As long as the preliminary work. The muscles pump up, I remember jumping, speed ... then proceed to new programs. Arbitrary set. The music for the short program found. But you must consult with the director Ilya Averbukh. By this season, both of my program puts it.
- Before you leave you say that you are in very good shape and I'll try to keep it. Failed?
- Of course, I tried to keep in shape, doing exercises - sit-ups, stretching, pumping, the muscles were not sleeping. Dealt with this before lunch, but not every day, because on vacation, especially in front of such a busy season, you need a good rest.
- Judging by their appearance, well rested.
- Yes, relaxed cool. In Cyprus, I was with my mother and family. They took a villa near the sea in the town of Ayia Napa. I was vacationing in Cyprus for the first time, so wanted to see the whole neighborhood. We rented a car and traveled throughout almost the entire island. There were at various beaches. Sand, clear water, what else is needed.
One day we decided to go to Paphos, a navigator, rather than to direct us along the coast, have a different route to the mountains. In general, the road turned out to be longer than the scheduled four hours on the road, but we do not regret it. Went up into the mountains, came in an unusual place - a village which is located winter sports resort. It's beautiful. Mountain called Olympus. This sporting match. From there I brought a lump. Took as a souvenir.
- Sea diving did not try to do?
- In general, I like to swim under water. During the boat tried to walk, but "underwater" in Cyprus is not in any comparison with Thailand. When we were in Asia, and around the dive there is full of different fish, sea urchins, reefs, seaweed. And then a few small fish and nothing else. But diving is still interesting. Although most of all I like to ride on horseback riding.
- I have to testify in Yekaterinburg have their horse. I love these animals. Since childhood potter with them. My Swallows colt was born on April 6. Cool horse. Trotters. Now, however, often can not ride them on horseback. I'm in Moscow, and figure skating takes up all my time.
- Cyprus has not accidentally ride a horse?
- Went on a horse ride. The coach was great, a well-known local athlete horseman. But then the habit my whole body ached. Any sport requires training.
