“We don’t have similar personalities. Appolinaria is two different people on the ice and in life. She’s tougher on the ice. When I arrived and we were a couple, Polina took command and I was not used to such an attitude of girls. She kept saying: We do this, we do this, you don’t understand anything “And I was shocked. We fought for this for a year and a half. Polina is more like ice. And I’m more emotional. We are completely different, but probably this unites us,” he said.
Several serious injuries affected their careers, with Rylov cyst removed and injured at the end of the 2020/21 season. Skaters had to miss the Olympic season to focus on rehab so as not to force them to recover from injuries.
