«Actually those are funny questions. We are very glad that firstly we took bronze, then defended it, then got the silver. For us it is a big impulse to work further and train harder. One of the main things in Ice Dance are senses, that is why we try to show that to the audience. When arriving home, we will check our mistakes in detail and continue our preparation for the Worlds. We are not planning to rest for a long time», - told Alexandra and Ivan.
