Figure film: Sui blinded in one eye, heroic Alyona and Eric’s adventures

By the number of movie episodes that can be woven into a script for a large screen, figure skating is beyond competition among all winter sports. The tournament of sports couples, which ended for us without medals (Yevgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov, unfortunately, only four) is the perfect poster: the winning, fifth, Alena Savchenko Olympic Games, Sui Wenjin blind in one eye and caught the spotlight after cuming out Eric Redford. What is not a potential Oscar nomination?
By the number of movie episodes that can be woven into a script for a large screen, figure skating is beyond competition among all winter sports. The tournament of sports couples, which ended for us without medals (Yevgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov, unfortunately, only four) is the perfect poster: the winning, fifth, Alena Savchenko Olympic Games, Sui Wenjin blind in one eye and caught the spotlight after cuming out Eric Redford. What is not a potential Oscar nomination?

Alyona

About Alena Savchenko after hire in a short program, Elena Vaytsekhovskaya brilliantly wrote. Fragile, at first glance, Alena stubbornly went to Olympic gold for more than 15 years. Countries, citizenships, partners changed, the key link remained unchanged: Alena. At that moment, when she realized that it was Olympic gold, Savchenko burst into tears – loudly, not shy from anyone. At the press rostrum, where among the commentators there are a constellation of Olympic and world champions, two-thirds cried. The way colleagues wanted the victory, Alena, can not convey. Five victories at the World Championships, two bronze Games and a clear position – continue to go on the ice, as there is a goal: Olympic gold. The partner’s mistake is short, a retirement from the leaders and understanding – now to win you need to jump above your head. Extremely concentrated, disconnected from all unnecessary Alyona came to an arbitrary, as, perhaps, go to the last battle. World record – and nerves to those who come next. Ideally flawless rental, she made worry rivals. Well, he’ll go straight into the hut and stop the horse!

Sui

Having painlessly survived the scandal with an understated age for an earlier start at the adult competitions, Sui and Han quite quickly became the number 1 pair, first in Asia, and then entered the world top. Need an ultra-si element. You need to surprise, take risks, you need a quadruple surge. Training one of the most dangerous (if not the most) elements in modern figure skating – quadruple throw – Sui falls, hits hard and loses sight in one eye. A serious injury becomes an additional motivation, and after recovery, the Chinese win the World Cup in Helsinki and come to the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang in the status of the main favorites. More than 82 points in a short, confident rental, a partner’s mistake on the sheepskin coat, 0.43 (!!!) points lagging behind Savchenko / Masso – and only (in this case only!) Second place. Tsun, I’m sure, will think about the sheepskin coat for a long time – one (!) Turn so that instead of a single one at least two, and gold instead of Germany would go to China.

Eric

Radford never hid his orientation and did not play a brutal alpha male, and the official announcement was only a matter of time. In the world of figure skating, they were ready for Eric to follow the male legend of skating, Brian Boytano, who came out before the Olympic Games in Sochi right after Barack Obama was included in the official delegation of American athletes. But Eric took a break and came out after the Games. As the athlete himself later admitted, he received only words of support, but something visually broke in a pair. The game, which was earlier with Megan and which many did not notice, became noticeable. Chemistry on ice disappeared. But at the same time, being an active athlete, part of the Olympic top, Eric instantly became a role model and a media hero.

Ginger

The story of Eugene and Vladimir, of course, is ahead. Ryzhikov will begin a new Olympic cycle and a trip for a dream. Then we will return first to Kazan, and then we will begin to write the sequel script and loop it – after all, the victories came to Zhenya and Volodya, including – at that moment when the former partner of Alena Savchenko – Robin Sholkova, began to work with them.
