He watched his brother Ruslan win gold in short track in the 5000m relay at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. "I could not believe it for several days. Every morning I would wake up, remember it, think it over, watch the video again, and I still could not believe our guys had become Olympic champions. His gold medal gives me additional motivation. We used to train in one team before, and now he is an Olympic champion. So I see what I should be aiming at." (sport-express.ru, 02 Aug 2014)
