I cant believe that my favorite male skater doesn't has a thread yet!
Alex was born in 1991 at St. Petersburg but does reside in Sweden since many years as his parents are coaches at the local figure skating club of Lulea. In that club Alex heard first about this wonderful sport at the age of 5 and since he found so many friends while tipping over the ice, he decided that this might be a cool sport to do so he got himself some proper coaching lessons and e voila 11 years later he landed his first quadruple jump, the toe at the Nordics and won the bronze medal at Junior Worlds in 2011.
Sadly, life has not always been easy with Sasha, since 2007 he suffers under a serious back injury which always causes trouble for him and even cost him the current season where he is trying hard to find someone out there who can help him with that. Right now he is undergoing an electro therapy and hopefully this wonderful skater will soon return to the ice rink, to give us his amazing skates - especially if he has his hood on!
Alex is still scheduled for the nationals this seasons, lets hope he can make it.
Alex is running a blog here,
Pictures of him,Hello again!
Yesterday I got a shockwave treatment of my physical therapist, hurt a little now and then when you hit the most tenderest areas.
It will be very interesting to see how the treatment will work.
Me and my physiotherapist Lars Lundgren on Hermelinen rehab decided to test a couple of shockwave treatments in the coming week to see if it gives any effect.
The next shockwave treatment will be on Saturday, including laser.
and if all of this isn't enough yet, then you can also write him in his guestbook and wish him a speedy recovery!
