Russia (bbabo.net), - Olympic champion of Sochi-2014, bronze medalist of Vancouver-2010, skeletonist Alexander Tretyakov was fourth in the competitions in Beijing-2022. The 36-year-old athlete called this result disappointing, so he will try to change the so-called wooden medal for a real one at the next Olympics.
“There are no positive emotions, I was upset,” Tretyakov told reporters. “I have been preparing for so many years (Tretyakov was not admitted to the 2018 Games in Pyeongchang - approx.), I was in good shape, but I could not take a medal. I went for the third and fourth attempts not very stable, made small mistakes, and the Chinese beat me. I let myself, my family, friends, the coaching staff down. But, of course, only myself is to blame for this, and I have to live with it."
Tretyakov said that now he has an incentive to prepare for another Olympics.
“I need to rest and continue to prepare for new competitions,” the athlete emphasized. “I will connect my prospects with the new Olympic cycle. I hope that you will see me again at the Olympic Games.”
