SOCHI, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian pair-skaters Tatyana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov said after the individual short programme on Tuesday that they were happy to improve their skating record at the Sochi Olympics.
Volosozhar and Trankov finished their short programme with 84.17 points and are the first. They will skate their free programme on Wednesday, February 12.
Tatyana disclosed the secret of their success.
“Our fellow-skaters in Nina Mozer’s group do not give us a chance to relax. Our team is so strong that even the third place in the short programme went to Ksenia Stolbova and Fyodor Klimov,” Tatyana Volosozhar went on to say.
She said that they were not flattering themselves with their lead over Alyona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy.
“This pair can easily liquidate any lag. We need to appear on ice and skate what we have prepared for the Games,” Volosozhar said.
The results of Tuesday’s short programme in individual pair skating are as follows: Russians Maxim Trankov and Tatyana Volosozhar are leading with a new world record (84.17 points).
German duet Alyona Savchenko/Robin Szolkowy is second (79.64).
Russians Ksenia Stolbova and Fyodor Klimov are third (75.21).
Another Russian pair, Vera Bazarova/Yuri Larionov, is only the eighth (69.66).
The free skating event will start at 19:45 Moscow time on February 12.
