Malinin is a young athlete. It's too early to compare them with Sema Uno
An American of Russian origin made Ilya Malinin a quadruple axel at the World Championships - but this did not allow him to become the first.
Coach Sergey Davydov shared his opinion on whether quadruple jumps affect the scores using the example of Ilya Malinin.
"Figure skating is not only a quadruple axel. Malinin is a young athlete. It is too early to compare them with Sema Uno in skating and presentation. Therefore, I think that everything was fair. Axel and quadruple jumps should be in the program. But not only they There should also be skating, a presentation, a program, a costume, spins," he said.
Ilya Malinin won the short program at the World Team Championship, but a number of mistakes in the free program prevented him from being the first.
