Currently, the athlete is studying in the third year of journalism at the RANEPA. According to her, it was always difficult for her to combine study and sports. To succeed in subjects, you need to completely immerse yourself in them, as with sports, which she has in the first place. Nevertheless, Zagitova called her schedule “free” and said that she could reschedule training if necessary if it coincided with classes.
As a journalist, Zagitova called her work in the Ice Age show a good practice. She remembered that she was the host of the project and interviewed everyone.
At the end of May, Zagitova received the MarSpo award in the Athlete of the New Generation nomination, after which she delivered a bright speech from the stage. She stated that she knows how to make Russian sports stronger and better, and added that she first wants to contribute to the development of sports as a journalist, and then try to become a sports functionary.
