A new anniversary show by Ilya Averbukh “15 years of success” took place at the “Ufa-Arena”. Both famous figure skaters, Olympic champions, world and European champions who have already completed their career, and current winners of sports tournaments take part in the tour. Alexey Yagudin, Maria Petrova and Alexei Tikhonov, Roman Kostomarov and Oksana Domnina, Maxim Marinin and Yana Khokhlova, Tatyana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Povilas Vanagas and Margarita Drobyazko, Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov, ice acrobats Alexei Polishchuk and Vladimir Besedin gave their performance to the Ufa audience.
According to Ilya Averbukh, he deliberately invites the athletes of the current Russian national team to give them an opportunity to get used to performing in the halls of many thousands of spectators.
In total, as part of the tour throughout 2019, the figure skaters will visit almost 30 cities. Basically, athletes travel by bus. The schedule is so tight that there is no time left for sightseeing in the cities, Alexey Yagudin, Nikita Katsalapov and Victoria Sinitsyna confessed at the briefing. Alexei Yagudin's leg problem worsened.
“Now some health problems arise, and I understand that I perform for the last year. However, one curtain call and you see the gratitude of the audience; it compensates everything,” Yagudin admitted.
