“After the Olympics in Sochi, as you may remember, I missed the whole season, restoring health. The home Olympics and the preparation for it was given to all. All the energy, all the emotion and all the experience that we gained from childhood. The Sochi games was so strong and bright event in life that for me was already impossible to come back. Not so much physically, but emotionally”, — stated in the message of the athlete.
“I will not hide, after the Olympics in Sochi, I had another solely personal aim. The purpose of my personal non-life, to be exact. Perhaps that is why it did not work, fully focusing on work to achieve good results in the past season. Believe me, everything possible was done to return to the previous level. I am honest and worked hard, but the pleasure of work was gone. This experience further convinced me that in order to succeed, you need to “burn,” explained Vilukhina.
