The 2002 Olympic champion in men’s singles, Alexei Yagudin, shared his opinion on the conflict with Alexandra Trusova’s father.
Alexei Yagudin admitted that he was not offended by the father of 2022 Olympic silver medalist Alexandra Trusova, who asked her to be removed from commenting on her daughter’s performances. The four-time world champion expressed his opinion on the matter in Metro St. Petersburg journalists.
“We didn’t expect apologies. We don’t need it. I don’t care. It’s his vision of how something should be. So be it,” said the former skater.
Trusova’s father demanded that the leadership of Channel One prohibit Yagudin and Tatyana Tarasova from commenting on the performances of their daughters, because they make statements to the 18-year-old athlete about the speed and cleanliness of the skating.
