In the competition that in the history of Italian figure skating is remembered for the fall of Barbara Fusar Poli-Maurizio Margaglio and her subsequent glance at him, the Russians Tatiana Navka-Roman Kostomarov dominated. It was the dance of the Turin 2006 Olympics. The couple coached by Alexander Zhulin, who won the last three European titles and two world titles, lived up to the prediction at the Palavela, lining up the Americans Ben Agosto-Tanith Belbin and the Ukrainians Olena Hrushyna -Ruslan Goncharov, with the Azzurri sixth. It would be their last competitive outing. Today, 47, she is the wife of Dmitry Peskov, one of the most influential Russian politicians, the first spokesman for Vladimir Putin. He, who turned 46 on Wednesday, is the husband of Oksana Domnina who, together with Maxim Shabalin, in the four Olympic years following that of Navka-Kostomarov, would have won two European golds and one world championship, up to bronze in the five hoops of Vancouver 2010.
Kostomarov – on the ice porteur with a strong personality and toreador in Carmen interpreted in that 2006 – in recent months he has returned to occupy the national news because he was openly in favor of the invasion of Ukraine, on 10 January he was urgently hospitalized in critical condition in the intensive care unit of a Moscow hospital, in the Kommunarka district. The previous week, according to the already suffering reconstructions, he had performed in a series of shows, even outdoors. And the day of hospitalization was awaited at the one organized by former colleague Ilya Averbukh. The first diagnosis? Pneumonia. With respiratory insufficiency and the need to resort to an artificial ventilator. But unfortunately the situation quickly deteriorated. Roman was first put into an induced coma and on Tuesday, with serious circulatory problems, the failure of some tissues and at the risk of sepsis, he underwent the amputation of both feet. “The surgery went well – reported Tass quoting a family member – Roman is conscious and his general conditions are good. But he remains in intensive care and now we are fighting to save his hands ”.

We never imagined we’d have a moment like this, but you’ll soon get over it.” “The whole world of sport is close to him – commented the Russian sports minister Oleg Matytsin – and I am sure that the work of the specialists, together with the affection of his loved ones and the many fans, will help him get out of it quickly”.
