Okay so I’m not sure if anyone is interested in this at all, but there is a Polish song from the 60s that really fits the events of the post Grand Prix Final banquet. (the song also has a Russian version btw)
Allow me to pair the translation with the images from the show.
You- down drink by drink at the buffet
Your eyes search the room - your heart pounding (do you remember?)
[…] (Do you remember how with me…?)
Your gaze found my eyes
And you stride forward […]
And in just a moment (do you remember how you danced with me…?)
You tiptoe up to me and above us, the music thunders
You pull me into the Grand Valse Brilliante
Do you remember how you danced the Waltz with me?
With […] the legend of those times?
Do you remember how the world began dancing?
The world that you held in your arms?
When you spin through the dancefloor, you pretend to be strong
You flex your meek muscles
You puff up your chest
I shall take this athlete, this warrior as my husband
