MOSCOW, March 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian bobsleigh racer Alexei Voyevoda, who won two gold medals at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, said he believed in magic of numerals and consider numeral three as his lucky one.
“Numeral three became the magic one for me after the Games in Sochi,” Voyevoda, the Sochi Olympic champion in two-man and four-man bobsleigh, said.
Speaking about his two golds at the 2014 Winter Olympics, held in Russia’s Black Sea resort city of Sochi, Voyevoda reiterated that the success should be attributed to the whole team.
“There are no primarily or secondary crewmembers. We all put our spirit and strength into the final result. It is a tradition to name the bob after the pilot. The boys, who sit behind our pilot Alexander Zubkov, are not idling during the race after the pushing. When we passing turns of the track, we are regrouping our weight to a certain side so that the bob could race down the optimal trajectory,” Voyevoda said.
The double Olympic champion added that having won in the medals rankings of the Sochi Olympics, Russia proved to the world its significance.
The 2014 Sochi Games were the first Winter Olympics since 1952 when the Games’ hosting country won the highest overall number of awards as well as the biggest number of gold medals. Team Russia finished the 2014 Olympics with the overall result of 33 won medals (13 gold, 11 silver and 9 bronze medals) surpassing its previous Winter Olympics record of 11 gold medals, set at the 1994 Winter Games in Norway’s Lillehammer.
