- I reached the final, came to the airport to fly to Marseille, and an incident happened. We have forgotten grandmother consent from parents that they let me go abroad on their own. We tried to persuade, beg to let me out without this document. But I was still a minor, and everything was much more serious. Grandma went home, but did not have time to go back before departure. I thought, to fly on the same day later one, without coaches. But Eteri G. said that Paris was a big airport, and it is risky.
I was very upset. But everything that is done for the better. I had a rage, and I really wanted to do well.
- - Maybe it helped?
-- Probably yes. I have forgotten the disc with music in the demonstration program, so it's good to be back. That is, it was not by accident.
- You arrived in Marseille, and came out on the ice, saying, "Not good" ...
- I would say inspired. My mom was very supportive. She wrote, phoned. Pope set up not to despair, saying that everything is being done not just in this life. But, to be honest, I'm still in shock from the events.
- You do not realize that you won the finals?
- I have not realized yet. It is necessary that a little time has passed.
- You have a very sophisticated program, which can compete with adult skater.
- But I do not think about it, to be honest. I know that I need to just go out and do what I do. No other choice. Of course, the net rental for me the main thing in this season. I have said many times that the rest of the judges to decide.
-- Highly. This season, the program was done by Eteri Tutberidze Daniel Markovich Gleyhengauz. For the short program, she asked coaches to make in the oriental motifs.
- I feel very good about that music. As a child, many times at a skate. It is like the East, and therefore proposed to Eteri Georgievne. When she heard music for the first time, immediately I understood that it was mine. I like the image of Scheherazade. I will not retell the story. Scheherazade - a very intelligent woman who lives for the sake of salvation, resorted to various women's tricks and feminine charms to please ... This is the story I'm trying to pass on the ice.
The free program is "Don Quixote." I watched the ballet. Many worked with the choreographer, honed all eyes, all ballet movement. I think it turned out.
- You said that your father is engaged in hockey, and your mother?
- My mom is not an athlete. It is very much like skating a few times started, but it did not. Mom really wanted to realize his unfulfilled dream in me, and all this done.
- So she was carrying a child on the rink?
-- No. I had very good childhood. Not so, as many skaters. Professionally I started skating at age seven. Prior to that, just skating, refering to the sport as a hobby: I liked it.
- And when I realized that this is a serious business?
- When it became something to be obtained, he began performing at the event. Until 10 years I have not had a single prize. Only once was the third. And then I came to Eteri Georgievne and felt that all is not easy.
- How did you come to it?
- This is an interesting story. I came to the competition in Moscow. There were not that good. And we have a long time ago with my mother wanted to go to a group Eteri Bonner. On the last day of the competition we were leaving home to Izhevsk, but I persuaded my mother: "Let's go, please, to Tutberidze".
This was on the other end of Moscow. We drove two and a half hours. We arrived. I skated for 40 minutes, because in a hurry on the train. Eteri G. said: "Come here new year, I will take you to view my group." I am so happy as if it had already taken me. We do not even have time to really enjoy, because it was necessary to run the train. Things were thrown into the car when the train started. But in time. I was so happy!
- Then I came to Moscow, work out at Eteri Bonner, and she kicked you.
-- Yes. I was very upset. One week could not move. We went in a group of Anna Tsareva Vladimirovna, because I was hoping until the last moment that I will take back to Tutberidze group. I at that time had an injury. I broke my foot in the competition. She arrived at the Games with a broken arm and a broken leg has to top it.
Then two weeks to rest up at home in Izhevsk. After the break, it did not work on the ice. Newly learned to ride. We thought with the parents, that is so, you need to go back to Izhevsk. Approached Eteri Georgievne flowers to say goodbye. Thanked, and she said: "Let's try again." I'm so glad that jumped with joy! I even tears of joy welled up!
Before that I did not know how to work. In Izhevsk, when we were young, we were forced to train on ice. And then I realized that the need to do everything herself. And it quickly became absorb.
- Hockey in childhood did not try to do?
-- No. When I came home recently, you would like to practice with my dad, play hockey. I still have a younger sister Sabina, her 8 years. It is also engaged in figure skating. At my age I have better jumping. So they drove me to the dad for 45 minutes. It seems to me that two kilograms thin. Of course, I did not play in a hockey skate. Just rolling out their skates. It turns out that hockey is a very difficult sport. She fell several times.
- You train in a group with Eugenia Medvedeva, but since you're from the sports family, maybe you have an idol in another sport?
- I liked Alina Kabaeva. I was named after her. I was born and I did not give the name to a year. Once parents watched gymnastics, Alina Kabaeva performed, they looked at each other and decided to call me so - Alina.
- Where do you live in Moscow?
- An apartment with my grandmother. My mom and dad are in Izhevsk. My parents are there, we are here. This, of course, difficult. I miss very much. My grandma is good. If she had not pushed me, not prompted errors, not scolded sometimes, I would much and has not achieved. Grandmother is already well versed in skating. All understand. Said leg pull, hand lift ...
- How do you spend your time in addition to the sport?
- I like to draw pictures on the numbers. With rhinestones pictures do. Very fine work. Soothes.
