Sergey Slavnov: “It is possible that our first start will the Championship of Russia.”

Translation of an article printed in the Russian language publication on July 9, 2008.

The Silver medalists of the European Championship, many time winners of the Championship of Russia, participants in the Worlds and Olympics, figure skaters Julia Obertas and Sergey Slavnow, who missed the 2007-2008 season will not participate in the beginning of the 2008-2009 season.

Says Slavnov: “We are not planning to participate in the very beginning, but may enter the season at the Russian National competition. We may also come back on ice earlier or later than that; it is hard to say at this time. In any event, we will not advertise our intentions to return to sports. We do not want to jinx ourselves. And, in general, we do not like the hype. We want our appearance in the competitions to comeM as a surprise.

The main thing for us now is to get ourselves in good emotional and physical form. That was why we took time off – to recover, especially psychologically, to find out what it was that we ourselves wanted. To get back the inner serenity which is very important for any person. When we feel that we are ready than we will come back on ice.

Competition with other skaters in the National does not bother us. If one would be afraid of competitors, why to be in sports? For Julia and me, the most dangerous competitors were always ourselves. It was that way when we competed with Totmjanina and Marinin and Petrova and Tikhonov. The situation will not change much now when the level of competitiveness in the Russian National team is low.”
