Alexandra Stepanova and Ivan Bukin successfully returned after an 11-month break of competitions to win the Rhythm Dance at the Russian National Championships in Chelyabinsk on Thursday.
“We did our maximum for today,” Stepanova commented.
“We were so eager to come here, we wanted to compete at Russian Nationals so much,” Bukin added. “We are fed up with being ill. We want to perform and thanks to everyone who supported us, who wrote to us, and waited for us. I hope we’ll now perform more than we did until today. After a break of 11 months, it is like you go out to compete for the very first time.”
