Coach Zhulin said that the figure skater Kostomarov managed to avoid depression in the hospital
Honored coach of Russia in figure skating Alexander Zhulin, in an interview with the program “In Two Words”, spoke about the fright during the first call of the Olympic champion in ice dancing Roman Kostomarov from the hospital.
“My hands were shaking. I see – Roma Moscow. I have it so recorded since America. My hand begins to tremble, because I understand: we all prayed, no matter what we did, ”said Zhulin. He stressed that Kostomarov managed to avoid depression, as he works with psychologists. The coach added that he was ready to take the athlete to his headquarters.
On May 25, the SHOT Telegram channel reported that psychologists were unable to get Kostomarov out of depression. It was noted that, despite regular sessions with specialists, he could not overcome the experience of amputations.
On May 12, Izvestia reported that Kostomarov was being prepared for prosthetics, which is planned to be done in Russia. Foreign specialists can be involved in operations, and prostheses can also be brought from abroad.
Kostomarov was admitted to the hospital on January 10 with pneumonia and influenza B. Due to the long connection to the blood oxygenator and the ventilator, tissue began to die. According to Moskovsky Komsomolets, the doctors had to amputate both feet of the figure skater, then the shins of both legs, the right hand, and several fingers of the left hand.
