Russian figure skater Nikita Katsalapov spoke about the costume in which he performed in rhythm dance at the European Championships
Russian figure skater Nikita Katsalapov told “Sport-Express” about the costume for rhythm dance at the European Championships in Tallinn.
“Why are these colors? Year of the Tiger! We have a leopard color, yes, but they are also felines. We watched the summer Fashion Week, and there were such images. It’s stylish, very few people take it, ”he said.
“It would probably be vulgar to wear something leopard print,” added Katsalapov’s partner Victoria Sinitsina.
When asked about the cost of the costume, Katsalapov answered with a laugh: “We cannot say that. Million dollars”.
Sinitsina and Katsalapov take first place in the European Championship after rhythm dance.
The second are Alexandra Stepanova and Ivan Bukin, the third – the representatives of Italy Charlene Guignard and Marco Fabbri. The third Russian couple, the daughter of Eteri Tutberidze, Diana Davis and Gleb Smolkin are in eighth place.
Skaters will perform a free dance on Saturday.
