For example, one expert recently evaluated the words that Alexandra Trusova was the one who should win the Games in Beijing in 2022, and that Eteri Tutberidze was second only to another student, Anna Shcherbakova.
“This is his opinion. Was there at least one judge who put him first? He does not have. Probably, the resentment speaks to Sasha now. But you have to blame yourself for everything, – quotes Sport24 Tarasova.
– I think Sasha’s program has been prepared for many years. She can’t be compared to anyone, she. If it had slipped cleanly, the gold would indeed be his.
And if Sasha is riding dirty, then there is no point in talking about something and offending. Like my dad said, you gotta look for your shit in yourself, not others.
