“In the locker room came our friend, the Swiss figure skater stéphane Lambiel, and said, “And that Tanya is pregnant? I can see how it rides, how does the elements — not as usual.” And it turned out that he knew something we didn’t know” — say two-time Olympic Champions Maxim Trankov and Tatiana Volosozhar.
Tatiana, Maxim, recently your coach Nina Mozer made an official statement that you will miss the entire season 2016/2017. The reason your teacher did not name, saying that you’ll explain…
Maxim: Yes, we are expecting a baby! Of course, we were planning kids, but it all happened suddenly…
Tatiana: We wanted to play this season in the championship of Russia and on the European and world Championships, but everything turned out differently, the plans changed dramatically. This season we are missing.
Maxim: Now of course, I regret that we haven’t thought about children before. We already missed one season due to my injury. And then it would be correct to seize the moment. It was right after the 2014 Olympics. But the doctors believed that I will recover faster and we were in limbo — that no matter what, and decided not to. And now, Tanya at that age — we’re both over thirty, — that it is necessary to decide: do we dedicate his entire life exclusively to the sport or thinking about posterity. And since we have already won everything that is possible, the issue of children has become paramount for us.
— What about the Olympics 2018?
Maxim: After the baby is born we will have a whole year to prepare, so we want to participate in it. Tanya talked to many girls, figure skaters who have given birth, recovered and took to the ice. With a strong desire not very difficult to get back in shape. A biathlete and skier, for example, even improve their results — due to hormonal recovery. Maybe us and the birth of a child will only benefit. We’ve had problems with motivation. And there will be new emotions and new circumstances that can push us to the next achievements.
Tatiana: But still I find it hard to give a 100% answer about the Olympics. During pregnancy the female body changes, then another feeding… Maybe I too will recover and will not be able to get back in shape. Of course, I’m specifically began to monitor the weight, despite the fact that never before with nutritionists did not work, lack of good inheritance. Now every time I think, before something to eat: so the kid is not hurt, and myself. Well, even I can say that Yes, I am planning as soon as possible to go on the ice after giving birth. And yet I’m not used to think ahead, instead, I just step by step move to the goal. Frankly speaking, you really want to take part in the Olympics. But at the moment the most important thing — the birth of a child. And then we will decide Yes or no.
