Another empty Zagitova hype? Now the icon of the Russian figurine has decided to wave the sabers.

Olympic champion in figure skating Alina Zagitova once again decided to try herself in another sport. Last year, the girl she dreamed of boxing, and now she was drawn to fencing. But based on the experience of last year, it is unlikely that anyone except Alina enjoyed what was happening.

your expectations your problems

In the summer of 2022, the Moscow authorities organized a sports day in Luzhniki, to which not only residents and guests of the capital, but also Russian and world stars were invited. One of the main points of the holiday program was the long-awaited boxing training, which was attended by two-time Olympic champion in boxing Oleg Saitov and Olympic champion in figure skating Alina Zagitova.

The master class began with the fact that Saitov did a warm-up for all Alina’s muscle groups. Then the boxer and figure skater began to perform various kinds of blows, naturally, he only hit Zagitova, and Oleg gave him only a little advice. At the end of the training, Saitov gave the girl a bouquet of flowers.

It would seem that everything worked out. However, the main problem lies in the fact that large-scale “warm-ups” of the audience were arranged before this event. All media channels and telegrams were full of messages not only about Zagitova’s training, but also about the fight between her and the boxer, albeit comic. The possible confrontation of the figure skater and Olga Buzova was also actively discussed.

Everyone expected a great show, which, unfortunately for the public, did not happen. Many began to write angry comments and said that instead of the expected Zagitova, she was simply “afraid to ruin her hair or makeup.” Also, the indignation of Muscovites was due to the fact that for quite a long time people were lured to the event with a soap bubble. But, as Andrei Arshavin said: “Your expectations are your problems.”

Will they make soap bubbles again?

This year, on July 1, Luzhniki will celebrate the centenary of Moscow sports. And again one of his headliners will be Zagitova. This time, the organizers decided to bring the figure skater together with the two-time Olympic champion in épée fencing Karina Aznavuryan. Again, the signal is interesting, but there are big questions about how it will be implemented.

Aznavourian himself is delighted with the future fight: “It’s great that top-class athletes like Alina Zagitova are not afraid to try their hand at sports that are new to them. I hope this idea will inspire people to expand their horizons and make even their wildest dreams come true,” said Karina.

It remains only to guess and wait how exactly the battle of the two Olympic champions will take place. Let’s hope that something worthwhile and really interesting awaits us. And not a simple training session where the girls will slash the air with swords.
