Voronov: “I was wrong letting go of my concentration towards the end. I haven’t been last to warm up for a long time ”
Russian figure skater Sergey Voronov commented on his performance in the short program at the Finlandia Trophy Challenger series tournament. The 32-year-old athlete made a mistake by falling while performing a triple Axel. For his skating run Voronov received 79.48 points.
“My mistake is that I let go of my concentration towards the end of my run. The fact is that I haven't been the last to warm up for a long time. It’s hard to ride as sixth - it’s like walking, stretching, and changing clothes, but then you need to go out and make yourself perform well.
In general, I would rate the rental as “satisfactory”. There were no ridiculous mistakes, "pops". Yes, I fell on my Axel, you can’t do that. But this is a twisted jump, he was at work.
Excitement? Only fools don't worry. Of course there is. Moreover, I had a break. Reliving competitive emotions again is pleasant and exciting.
Do I keep on skating because I don’t make enough money in shows? In our country, everyone wants more money, but that is not the point. If I wanted to earn more, I would do something else in the world of sports. The same show. But I want to live my life with pleasure. Yes, I worry sometimes over performing in competitions, and sometimes, excuse me, I strain myself for the fifth spot. But it gives me a high feeling.
Now everyone will again say I am a veteran. It's funny to me when they call me that. I would like to answer reporters: "Guys, next question please." Okay, okay, if there is a veteran, let him be a veteran. But veterans are those who participated in the Great Patriotic War. While I am just a young man who has been engaged in figure skating for a long time .....”

At first I thought the big cheers that came when he was introduced was because Yuzu did something cool, but no, the audience really do like him a lot!
Indeed! Although Plushy also got the Prince treatment in Japan, some of the old videos on YouTube are hilarious. It's not Yuzu levels, of course, but there used to be quite a cascade of flowers when he competed. They even gave him a fake crown once!
I wonder if Arthur G was just as popular there
It's a magazine world: only an appearance counts . He's tall and of great posture, his hair and skin are bright, and that's enough to show him as a man of dreams...
Thank God for that!
