“Oh, you know, he announced that, and then there was another, at least something of that. I can say one thing: “Whatever entertains the child – as long as he does not cry.” I’m telling you, I’m already lost in what he said and wanted. There are already many such expressions, do not focus too much on them, ”said Rodnina.
Zagitova is the Olympic champion (single skating) and silver medalist (team tournament) of the Olympic Games – 2018. The athlete also has World Championship – 2019 gold, 2018 and 2019 European Championship gold and silver.

After the suspension of her sports career, Zagitova began her career in television, spending two seasons of the Ice Age program as the host.
