Irina Viner revealed why Arina and Dina Averina are still training even they wanted to finish their career after Tokyo 2020.
“After Olympic Games, Arina called me. She told me she wanted to finish her sports career. The intention of the twins was to graduate in Economics and attend to University. I said -okay-. Hold on for a minute, chicken. Wet chicken. What did the Nation for you and your sister? Why did the people take you to the Red Square in your honour? The first prime Minister, said that your sister Dina deserved the gold medal. Now the President is going to give you an award. Are you crazy? How dare you! Will you let the people down? After all these, how can you say that to me?
“Quickly go to gym!” – said Irina Viner. ”Were you trying to test me? How much do you want me to suffer for you? You though that I would say to you that I have younger gymnast that can replace you. But you are not right”
Irina Viner made them back to the gym. Now Dina and Arina are training for the next season on their brand new routines.
