5th Feb 2015, Zhenya appeared in a TV program which was an interview of Irina Viner, Zhenya’s part at 14:14-15:39. here’s the English translation of her words:
There are not so many people who love their jobs as much as she loves gymnastics. Moreover, she loves children very much – little children, big children. She is full of energy but she gets absolutely exhausted at the end of the day after having shared all her energy with kids.
She knows how to forgive. None of us is innocent and of course we all do mistakes from time to time. So she doesn’t dismiss you from the National Team but she gives you one more chance and the rest depends on you.
She always takes care about the families. Well, I am talking about my family now. She helped me very much and thanks to her and her husband I managed to move to Moscow and brought all my family here.
Irina Alexandrovna, I love you very much. I am very happy that I have met such a nice person on my way, such a nice teacher. I wish everyone could meet such people. Thank you so much for everything you have done and are still doing for me! I love you very much!
