Figure Skating Translations translated a 'hum-dinger' of an interview with none other than 2002 Co-Olympic Champion Anton Sikharulidze.
Anton, rather frankly, discusses his career in (Duma) Politics, his thoughts on his professional carrer, Russian Ice Television shows, his dislike of the current judging system, and his "Global Goals."
His feelings on Russian skating now: "Well, I read about the Grand Prix results in your paper. I think the Russian athletes’ performances are a lot less interesting now than they used to be."
Be sure to check out the whole interview...interesting stuff!
And just to take us down memory lane...how about that Charlie Chaplin program...
