MOSCOW, February 13. /TASS/. Russia’s two-time snowboarding world champion Dmitry Loginov told TASS on Wednesday that his future plans are to gain more skills and take home the gold at the Olympic Games.

Last week at the 2019 FIS Freestyle Ski and Snowboarding World Championships in the United States, the 19-year-old Russian snowboarder won gold in the parallel giant slalom becoming the youngest rider to win in this discipline. The following day, Loginov raced to win in the parallel slalom, bringing Russia its first ever gold in this event of the World Championships.

“If we speak about plans not for this year only, but in general, I certainly want to win the Olympic gold,” Loginov said in an interview with TASS.

The next edition of the Winter Olympic Games will be held in China’s capital of Beijing on February 4-20, 2022.

“However, this season is not over yet, I must be pushing harder to improve my position in the World Cup standings,” he continued.

“We have returned from the World Championship in the United States a couple of days ago, I got some rest, feel refreshed and eager to continue competing,” the snowboarder added.

Loginov has been taking part in international competitions since October 2015. The Russian is a world champion in parallel slalom among juniors (2016) and also a two-time silver medalist in the junior world championship in 2017 (in the parallel slalom and parallel giant slalom).

Last Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin extended his personal congratulations to Loginov for winning Russia’s first-ever gold medal at the World Championships in the snowboarding parallel slalom event.
