Interview to Aleksandra Soldatova

ALEKSANDRA_SOLDATOVA

Russian Rhythmic Gymnastics senior team member, Aleksandra Soldatova, gave an exclusive interview to Russian TV after World Championships.

How do you feel after a good performance?

I have to say that of course when you perform a clean routine and so that you get a high score, that is such a good feeling. But also I know that isn’t still your limit. That is maybe one of the bests moments for a gymnast.

Do you usually cry during trainings?

I remember when I was a kid I used not to cry. At least I tried not to. Even if the coach shout to me. Right now it is kinda different. I usually cry because of my feelings, mostly happiness.

Alexandra Soldatova
Have you ever think in stop doing gymnastics?

There were a lot of moments that I thought to just give up. But then, I believe this is just a way to reach a medal.

Did you start doing gymnastics because of Rhythmic Gymnastics Stars?

When I started doing gymnastics I didn’t know Kabaeva, Kanaeva… I just liked gymnastics and that’s why I focused on it. I even wasn’t interested in Olympic Games or World Championships.

How did you met Anna Dyachenko (Shumilova)?

I don’t remember clearly. But I got close to her really soon and, then, I understood how a great person and coach she is. I respect her a lot.

What would you say to those who have you to stop doing gymnastics?

That words make me feel mad at them. Of course gymnasts have a lot of injuries and suffer from pain. But I feel that I have to do something for this sport.

SOLDATOVA
How is Irina Alexandrovna Viner as a coach?

Without her I could not have any medals. When I am training even over 10 hours a day, of course I feel really tired. But I am thankful to her because she helps me a lot. Instead of thinking “I am exhausted” I think, “Thank you Irina Alexandrova for spending this time with me”.

Could you describe how was this last year for you?

Extremely hard. I injured my leg. It was such a long recovery. I also missed European Championships. I was quite sure I was going to this event. I had to say that before I got injured, I performed my routines as clean as I could. I was ready for EC. I remember how I start feeling the pain in my leg during leaps. Then the doctors realized my leg was broken. Once I knew that, I started crying. I think I will regret of not going to EC the rest of my life…
