Tatiana Tarasova, Alexei Zheleznyakov and Renat Laishev about Eteri Tutberidze answering American blogger Dave Lease.
Tutberidze left a harsh comment on Dave Instagram.
“Dave, you so full of shit. You have no conscience, no honor. You don’t respect others, because haven’t achieved anything yourself. Your statements humiliate the people around you. Shame on you.”
Of course number of her colleagues started to defend her) Here are some comments.
Tatiana Tarasova: I am not his mother, not his head, not his pen, I cannot tell you if he will attack Eteri again. Probably he will, if that’s the way he is. She was absolutely right to respond to his attacks.
He writes lies, so why can’t she speak out about it. I don’t know why he wrote it. She has great results and great relationships with her athletes. You know, I don’t even want to talk about it.
She works on such a line – what is possible and what is impossible. Our skaters are doing incredible things. I have a lot of respect for her.
Choreographer Alexei Zheleznyakov: Yes, I completely agree with her! She answered even softly. Everyone is used to the fact that Eteri Georgievna never responds to attacks. But if Eteri answers, everyone will faint at once.
Yes, in fact, let’s call everything by its proper name. Stop being hypocritical. This gentleman certainly deserves such “praise”. I would have done this long ago if I were Tutberidze. Especially if the family is touched.
Renat Laishev: She got tired of all this. Having given the country three Olympic champions at three Olympics in a row, she has already proved everything to everyone, but they are trying to get something negative instead of helping and creating conditions for further work for the benefit of our fans, spectators, the good of our country.
She is more of an artist though. This, of course, is the hardest work, but at the same time, subtle creativity, a combination of sports and art. Therefore, this nervousness can be explained by a huge number of comments that we do not all know, someone can blather something.
A stir is created: “Where is the daughter? Why did you go to America? And why is that? Such a bullying turns out. And Tutberidze is a non-public person, a hard worker and a workaholic – from morning to evening she is on the ice with her skaters and works for the joy of us.
We are all human. I have not experienced such on myself, although there was a lot of gossip. Although I am in charge of the sport and I am obliged professionally. And Eteri Georgievna is a great coach who has to shoot back from attacks. I think such post can be absolutely justified. Sometimes you really want to tell someone to go to hell.
