Alexei Tikhonov spoke about the performance of the greenhouses Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov at the Beijing Olympics.
“Three weeks plus ten days in Krasnoyarsk, then three weeks in Beijing, where they sat in a bubble, and Vovka was the perfect partner, Zhenya was the perfect partner. They understood what was at stake, they understood that they were a team, they were a couple, and I was so delighted. There were at least some rough edges during this preparatory period. What is the plus? The fact that the training sessions are 30-35 minutes, and you don’t have time to either quarrel or to "Pinch each other, tuck in. You have to do a huge amount of work very clearly in 30 minutes. Without supporting each other, it's impossible to do this," he told the "Championship".
Tikhonov also noted that during the performance, the skaters, despite being tired, had burning eyes, and also expressed admiration for the work of Tarasova and Morozov.
