We can endlessly talk about Tatiana Volosozhar as a figure skater. But it is also possible to talk endlessly about her as a person. No doubts that she is one of the best figure skaters in the world. But today I would like to say a few words about her personality.
I have always greatly admired of her sporting qualities. And once talked to her (I am referring to my interview with Tatiana and Stanislav Morozov) I also admire her human qualities. From the first seconds she creates a warm and pleasant atmosphere around her; it seems that the whole world became kinder. Exactly the same feeling is created at each of her appearances on the ice. It’s not so important how strong the competition is – if Tatiana on the ice, everything becomes instantly harmonious and beautiful.
One day I happened to see a brief interview of her mother. You know it was exactly the same impression! So special big thanks to Tatiana’s mom for such a wonderful person!
An important factor in her character is that she is a true hard worker on the ice. It’s absolutely no matter how the competition went. At the trainings Tatiana forget about all and focuses only on the present. And of course this confidence extends to the surrounding partner, coach and other team members.
This season she has a new partner Maxim Trankov. He is a very strong skater and, after looking a little excerpt of his training with Tatiana, I concluded that he got her confidence, harmony and a positive outlook on things. And all of this is very important for success in the sport.
I also want to note that Tatiana Volosozhar is a very open person to talk to. She, along with Elena Glebova and Ashley Wagner, was one of the first who agreed to do an interview with me. At that time, about a year ago, my blog was very young and little known. However, everything turned out just fine! And this is largely due to the fact that communication was with such a remarkable person in all respects.
I would like to wish Tatiana all the best and that all her dreams come true. She deserve it!
