But I didn’t want to leave the sport, understand, for what all are doing. For the sake of medals, and to move his family to Moscow. We lived not very well, not enough money even to travel by bus. Every day I went to practices on other end of Moscow, came out at seven in the morning, and returned at eleven at night. With the medals came and earnings,” – said Sagitov.
