BERLIN, February 13. /ITAR-TASS/. German-Ukrainian figure skater Aliona Savchenko, 30, who won bronze in the pair event at the Sochi Olympics together with her partner Robin Szolkowy, is planning to look for a new one, as Szolkowy says his sport career is over.
Savchenko expressed her clear desire to take part in the next Winter Olympics in 2018, which will be held in South Korea. “I am not finished with the Olympics yet”, she said.
Savchenko also added she wanted to participate in the World Figure Skating Championships, which will take place in Japan this March. However, in this case she will have to persuade her partner Robin Szolkowy, who is four years older than she, to perform with her in Japan, too.
“It would be wrong to put an end to our ten-year partnership right away”, stressed Savchenko, adding they had only managed to win bronze at the 2014 Olympics.
