Post: Bestemyanova was called the main target of the dance duet Stepanova and Bukin.


Bestemyanova believes that the main goal of the dance duo Stepanova and Bukin is the gold of the Olympic Games.

MOSCOW, March 22 – RIA Novosti, Svetlana Bonopartova. Alexandra Stepanova and Ivan Bukin, two-time Russian champions in figure skating, moved to the Alexander Zhulin group to win the Olympics, Natalya Bestemyanova, champion of the Olympic Games and silver medalist in ice dancing, told RIA Novosti.

On Wednesday, Zhulin told RIA Novosti that Stepanova and Bukin have joined the coaching group. Previously, athletes trained in the group of Irina Zhuk and Alexander Svinin.

“I think this decision was very difficult for Vanya and Sasha, because for many years they trained in the group of Irina Zhuk and Alexander Svinin. But I think the guys made this difficult decision because they really wanted to win the Olympic Games. … It is not easy for them, you need to return to the same level and you yourself you need to grow on several levels. I believe that all this is possible, “said Bestemyanova.

Stepanova and Bukin won the European Championship five times. At the Beijing Olympics, the duet took sixth place. They’re missing this season due to a partner’s back injury.
