Champion figure skater from Odesa tried to be stabbed in Moscow
Figure skater Danilo Semko was hospitalised in Moscow after being stabbed. According to Championat, the 22-year-old native of Odesa, who represents the Hungarian national team, was admitted to the Botkin Hospital in the Russian capital with a stab wound to his right thigh.
In his spare time, Semko used to work part-time in Petrovsky Park at a children's skating rink. On his way home from work, the athlete was injured by a sharp object.
At first, the skater told the doctors that he had been hit by an unknown man in the crowd, and then he felt pain in his leg and saw blood. The doctors called the police, but Daniil told them a completely different story. According to him, he simply scratched himself badly when he caught hold of a bag with something sharp.
Semko did not spend long in hospital, and is already ready to leave Russia to take part in the World Championships to be held in Japan.
"Ignatieva and Semko are preparing for the World Championships, and will fly to Japan on March 16 to take part in them," RIA Novosti quoted a representative of the dancing team as saying.
Semko started figure skating professionally in 2006 in Kyiv. In 2015, Danylo changed his citizenship and moved to Hungary. Semko became the Hungarian junior champion three times (2018-2020) and participated in the finals of two World Junior Championships (2018, 2020).
Maria Ignatieva, a native of Yekaterinburg, became the skater's latest partner. The Russian was granted Hungarian citizenship and together with Semko won the country's championship twice. In January, the Hungarian duo took 10th place at the European Championships.
