Hahahhaha, Dmitry is a true Zagifan! I guess we all watched Worlds with similar emotions!http://instagr.am/p/CF1bHdtlm6t/ From Dmitry Yermak, main lead in the Russian POTO musical:
"Guys, my mission has been accomplished))) An in-person acquaintance took place ... I admitted that I'm Alina's main fan, and it turned out that Alina knows me from "The Phantom of the Opera" that she watched when she was preparing her short program last season, and my son now has photo with the Olympic Champion !!!"
Video of Dmitry fanboying over Alina is the last one in the reel above
“In training it is difficult physically, but here it is morally difficult. Difficult everywhere in its own way.
This is a new experience for me and in general a completely different role. I'm not here as an athlete, but as a presenter. When you get into something new, you always start to worry more. But I think that gradually this anxiety will go away and in the end it will not be there at all.
I wake up at eight o'clock, apply some face masks, do some facial massages. If I have time, then I also go for a run. I come to the studio first, because they do my makeup, and it takes quite some time. I ask all the contestants about what has happened during this week. Then I look at the texts and read them.
I am a perfectionist and I love it when everything goes on schedule and clear cut. I try to do everything well, to the maximum.
It's interesting because you watch people, you look at their reactions, and they support you in return, just like in competitions.
Of course, I've gained more and now experience, I already more or less know everyone, it's much easier to interview others now. Now everything is interesting to me, I am like a curious cat: I ask everyone everything. It seems to me that I've even bugged the hell of everyone a little bit, tired. But this is my job now.
Don't worry about me, I'm fine. Now I enjoy life, just as I did before, only now I have something else besides figure skating.
On Mondays I go to the university, then I go to trainings and train until the evening. And if there is no study, then the schedule is usual - from nine to seven in the evening I am at the rink. Nothing has changed for me, I just add something new. I develop not only in sports. But I want to keep fit so that I can be ready at any time. I do not force myself to go training.
Figure skating is my life. Without this, I don't know what I would do at all. Therefore, now I am learning something new, with the coaches we find all sorts of tricks. Trying to take on everything I can. It's difficult, because after training you still have to go somewhere else, but I like the variety - there is no house-ice rink-house routine."
Me after reading the translation:Olympic champion in figure skating Alina Zagitova talked about how she is coping with the role of the host of the Ice Age show:
