Video link: (from min 14 to 17)
(this interview was made before WC Corbeil I guess…her hoop starting position was still the former one)
English translated by Laura, many many Thanks!!!
The interviewer asks Zhenya if she she can repeat her Olympic gold in London or conversely,this is so difficult.
Zhenya: I don’t know. There are too many stages before Olympics and only two gymnasts per country can participate. We all want to go.
Q: who are the strongest rivals for Russian in London?
Zhenya: When I compete I don’t think about rivals because this isn’t a fight, this isn’t a sport in which we have to combat. We only go to the carpet and perform our routine. There are a lot of strong countries like Belaruss, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Italy. It’s really difficult to determinate who is the strongest because this is an unpredictable sport.
Q: Hope I can interview you in London, after winning your second gold.
Zhenya: I hope I can go! It’s my dream to take part twice in OG.
