Alexander Zhulin, in an interview with Vasily Konov on YouTube, shared the details of the divorce from Tatyana Navka. As the skater noted, the turning point in their relationship was Navka's victory at the Olympics.
After receiving the medal, the couple returned from the United States to Russia, since Tatyana had more prospects at home.
“Tanya won the Olympics, a lot of opportunities opened up, from that moment it was necessary to weigh everything on the scales. Or maybe it is not necessary, or maybe, the moment has simply come that we need to go along different paths ",
- Zhulin admitted.
The hardest part for the skater was parting with his 6-year-old daughter Sasha:
"At that time I was not alone either, but I was still going through hard."
In the end, the athletes managed to come to a compromise and divorce without scandals. Later, Navka married Dmitry Peskov and gave birth to his daughter Nadia. Zhulin linked his life with figure skater Natalya Mikhailova, in marriage with whom he had two more children - daughters Ekaterina and Elena.
We will remind, earlier "Rambler" reported that Peskov told how Navka started her career.
