Russia’s Gold-Medal Figure Skaters: Celeb-Relationship Status Pioneers

Just before Russian figure-skating pair Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov took the ice in last night’s free-skate event, NBC cut to a short package about the gold-medal favorites (and eventual gold medalists). After a few moments’ worth of practice footage and behind-the-scenes stories from the four years the pair has been skating together, NBC’s reporter asked Trankov and Volosozhar the inevitable question: Is the palpable, sensual chemistry they exude on the ice based in real-life romance?
Given the unique talent, rare achievements, and all-consuming dedication of these two world-class athletes, it’s obviously somewhat silly for a reporter to push past the discussion of their professional accomplishments and instead ask about love lives. But the modern Olympics, whether we like it or not, have become an opportunity for viewers to get to know elite athletes by proxy, to feel like they’re rooting for their friends-once-removed. It’s only natural to want to know what kind of love drives a champion to succeed at the Games—in this case, whether it’s love of sport, love of country, or love of teammate.
Listening to the reporter’s paraphrasing during the segment, you might get the impression that the Volosozhar and Trankov are simply elusive or private about the status of their relationship off the ice; they’d effectively skirted the issue for some time now, the reporter summarized. But Volosozhar and Trankov’s assessment of whether they’re a couple was both direct and quietly astonishing: They are, sort of.

How does it feel to finally be a Manchester United player?
It’s a very happy day for me, meeting my team-mates, the manager, seeing the training ground. It’s a massive club and I feel very proud to be here.
What went through your mind when you heard of United’s interest?
I thought, ‘wow’! This is a team that has won a lot of leagues in the history of the Premier League and English league. It’s amazing knowing that a club like Manchester United is interested in you. It’s a good feeling.
So many great players have come to this club but you are the record signing. Do you relish the pressure that brings?
I know it is a big price but I’m confident that everything is going to be okay. I will try my best as I always have done. The squad and the manager are very good and the fans are unbelievable - we have everything to be successful.
You had a wonderful time at Chelsea and were player of the season in the last two years - are you surprised to be here in a way because it’s very rare for big clubs to sell players to their rivals?
To be honest it is a bit surprising. But I have to say I’m really grateful to Chelsea, to the owner, everyone who works at the club and the fans - they voted me the best player in the last two seasons and I will always be grateful. They have been amazing with me. The last six months were difficult as I didn’t play as much as I wanted to. I understand it’s a team sport so I respected that situation. But the chance to come to Manchester United was a great moment for me to carry on with my career and join another massive club.
How excited are you by the prospect of linking up with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Adnan Januzaj to name a few?
Obviously for a player like me who is trying to score goals, assist goals and be a creative player it’s going to be amazing to play with those kinds of players. Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Adnan, Valencia, Chicharito, Welbeck… they are all top-level players and I will try to do the best for the team.
What do you think is your best position?
First of all playing! [Laughs] I love to play. I think I can play in the three positions behind the striker. I played on the left when I arrived at Chelsea, this season I have played on the right and last season, which was probably the best season of my career, I played behind the striker. But it doesn’t matter as long as I play.
You’ve already won an incredible amount of trophies in your career, but what do you want to achieve here?
I would like to win the Premier League. It’s a very special trophy for every player that plays in this country. At this club I believe you can achieve anything. I will try my best. I am still young and have been lucky to win some trophies, but I want to win a lot more.
The manager has said he is keen for you to be involved in the Cardiff game on Tuesday - what will it mean to you to run out at Old Trafford as a United player?
Old Trafford is an unbelievable stadium to play football at. I have been here two or three times but always with rivals and now I have the chance to play there as my home. It’s going to be different but it will be great because I know how incredible the fans are there.
