SOCHI, February 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian pair skaters Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov became more confident after winning the Olympic gold medal in the team event and demonstrated their confidence in individual skating on Tuesday evening, the pair’s coach Vladislav Zhovnirsky said.
“Fedor and Ksenia have shown a very good level in the short program today. They are well prepared, both technically and emotionally. Victory in the team event had made them even more confident. I hoped that it would happen this way. It could not be otherwise. Besides, as the saying goes, the walls at home are your friends, your comfort and you’re helping hands,’ the coach said.
The results of Tuesday’s short program in individual pair skating are as follows: Russians Maxim Trankov and Tatiana Volosozhar are leading with a new world record (84.17 points).
German duo Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy are second (79.64).
Russians Ksenia Stolbova and Fyodor Klimov are third (75.21).
Another Russian pair, Vera Bazarova and Yuri Larionov, is only the eighth (69.66).
The free skating event will start at 19:45 Moscow time (15:45 GMT) on February 12.
