Maxim Trankov: "Mukhortova/Blanchard will be the most beautiful Russian pair"

According to Russian media, the medalist of the European Championships Maxim Trankov told in a little interview about his new partner, Tatiana Volosozhar and about a pair of Maria Mukhortova and Jerome Blanchard. Also he told a few about his new goals for the near future.

“With Maria, I traveled a long way in my life and I don’t regret about anything. The decision to skate with Tatiana Volosozhar was taken a long time ago, I had to weigh everything and I thought a lot about the situation. A year ago I already decided that the Olympics in Vancouver will be our last tournament with Mukhortova . In principle, I planned to finish my career as a skater, but the only thing that could hold me in sport it’s the desire of Volosozhar to skate with me.

I sincerely wish good luck to Maria. I think with Jerome they become the most beautiful Russian pair. They have a lot of skating talents. They skate really great, it’s true. Also in the new season we will be in equal conditions.
We need to be selected for the Russian National Championships and occupy a podium to get a chance to go to the World Championships. But the main thing, of course, is to go to the Olympic Games in Sochi. Without that goal I don’t think I could skate more in a competitive skating “- told Trankov in an interview.
