“I wondered if I still decide where I’m going to skatyvanie? Should I go with the team or separately somewhere? I’d love to go with the team, would have joined them to the collection. Maybe take my personal trainer or personal plan would work out. But when I found out that the team will run in Kirovsk… I understand that it is not suitable for me,” said the athlete.
The veteran stated that he does not understand why the team chose Kirovsk as the venue of the training. “In any case, I’m inclined to think with your head,” — said Shipulin.
