A new round was the news that Yana Rudkovskaya tried to persuade Alina Zagitova to join her husband's school. Dadygin expressed the opinion that if we talk about sports ethics, then there are questions to the Plushenko Academy. However, one should take into account the fact that the Sambo-70 school, where Tutberidze teaches, receives financial support from the Ministry of Sports. The expert compared the institution to a “state enterprise” where many parents want to send their children interested in sports.
As for Plushenko, he created his school from scratch through investments and private investments. Pupils pay for education, exceptions are made for athletes of the Olympic level, writes Nation News. Dadygin is convinced that now both coaches are waging a “war”, fighting for their reputation, students and profit. The confrontation has been going on for more than a year, just before it was not so actively discussed in the media. The expert added that neither side is going to concede.
