Satoko Miyahara

Satoko Miyahara’s jumps are criticized – low, they say. But I would call the jumps not low, but rather small – in English there is such a beautiful word tiny, meaning something small, but with a positive connotation. Small, neat jumps – such as Satoko herself. They have aesthetics and taste.

In Satoko Miyahara there is tenacity, it seems to me that she is very persistent in the good sense of the word, she goes out and starts brazenly (despite the low jumps) to ride.

Acquaintance with Satoko Miyahara’s figure skating.

Satoko Miyahara was born in Kyoto in 1998. She has been practicing figure skating from a young age, she has shown very good results for her age.

Alina Zagitova

Alina Zagitova is one of the best skaters in the world, performing in the women’s single discipline of figure skating. For the titles that Alina won before adulthood, many athletes strive all their lives. What caused this success: the pursuit of excellence, hard work or good heredity? In the biography of the girl, each of these criteria is placed on the title step of the pedestal.

Childhood
In the late spring, May 18, 2002, in the large educational and cultural center of the Urals and the Volga region, Izhevsk, the first-born was born into the Zagitov family. Literally a year, the baby lived without a name: parents were so reverent about this issue that they could not come to a common denominator. Until one day they saw the broadcast of the performance of the famous gymnast Alina Kabaeva. Alina is a gentle and melting name on her lips, however the character of the name identifies nature with a firm and unshakable inner core. The parents of the little girl looked at each other and in an instant decided to name their eldest daughter Alina.

Ilnaz Nasikhovich Zagitov, coach of the hockey team, for all his childhood and youth served for his two daughters – Continue reading
