Gymnast remained depressed, even had the idea to retire - Aliya was sure  she will not have time to prepare for the Olympics. But her boyfriend pulled her from darkest thoughts. Alex gave her flowers and sweets, constantly amused  and told interesting stories. The girl was captivated by Alex and invited him to celebrate New Year at her home in Moscow. It was an unforgettable night! And on January 1 Alex flew to the US in the international tournament.

Later, he surprised Mustafina several times, appearing without warning on the basis of gymnastics "Round Lake". After finishing training, Aliya, a little embarrassed, went on a date. Eventually Mustafina realized she was more attracted to this guy. One day she met Zaitsev at Sheremetyevo airport, when he did not expect this. Aliya that day had two workouts, but the gymnast has united them into one (longer than usual) and rushed to the aircraft. Alex was touched.

Bobsledder Zaitsev can be proud of just one achievement in the sport. He was silver medalist at the European Championship in the competition-fours beans. Mustafina has much more titles. She is the double Olympic champion, three-time world champion and five-time European champion. As they say, feel the difference.
