Silver medalists of Beijing 2022 in ice dancing Victoria Sinitsina and Nikita Katsalapov shared their impressions of the meeting with Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin.
The event took place on April 28 in the building of the Moscow government. Sobyanin presented money certificates to the Olympians. Olympic champions received 4 million rubles, silver medalists – 2.5 million, bronze – 1.7 million rubles.
“It is very important for us. We take great pleasure in being here. We remember the feeling when we were awarded in Beijing,” said Sinitsina.
“How are we going to spend the money? Probably, we will not share such things with you.
It is very important to feel the support of Moscow. We give our lives to sport, we live and breathe it. After achieving high results, it is very important for us to feel the support of our city and country, and we feel it 100%,” added Katsalapov.
