    No, it doesn’t make sense.

    But “wow, she said she’s working on a flutz, now Imma gonna really call those flutzes babeeee” makes no sense to me either.

    I was trying to say, in my opinion, benefit of the doubt *either* way makes no sense

    i suppose that aknowledging she has a flutz may call judges attention to it.
    I mean, you see her do the jump, you are not sure. But then if you remember the skater said she has a flutz, that could impact the perception. Or lead judges to review it or whatever.

    What a class act she is. I hope the best for her, she has a great chance of reaching the goals she stated for the Russian Fed. She had a few years where she was the undisputed champion of the world, and going forward I hope she is able to cash in with endorsements, shows, whatever she wishes for her future. I don't blame her at all for wanted a change of scene, understandable. As far as 'longevity' in figure skating, I'm not sure that is really possible anymore for anyone, not with the tech required these days. In that doc Hirsh talks about, Medvedeva talks about the Sasha's, Anna's and Elena's moving up. Alina is also cognizant of how difficult next year is going to be. Medvedeva is an amazing person, I hope she has a good year.

    We can all come to hypothesis's about Evgenia's future. In 2022 she might have moved on from skating for all we know. She might do great with Orser. She might end up wishing she'd never left Eteri. But just as I can't tell you where I will be 4 years from now none of you can say where Evgenia will be 4 years from now.


    Do not turn this into Eteri vs Brian again.

    This thread is closed. People have had their say about the relevant issues in the interview.

    We do not want Eteri vs Brian threads and they will be removed immediately.
