Thanks to this 360° video, watch and learn how to warm up like an Olympic Champion. You can follow Alina Zagitova (RUS) and her every move before she takes the ice.
It’s all about the workout! To avoid any injury, athletes need to be well prepared.
Alina Zagitova starts slowly, warming up every part of her body and gently picking up the pace to finally reach the moment she is ready to take on the jump challenge. If she can do it on the ice, she can do it on the ground.
As a grand finale, she goes through her program, visualizing every step, jump and move. The mental preparation is also a big part of an athlete’s training. And that is how the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Champion warms up before a competition.
