Alina Zagitova

Alina Zagitova is one of the best skaters in the world, performing in the women’s single discipline of figure skating. For the titles that Alina won before adulthood, many athletes strive all their lives. What caused this success: the pursuit of excellence, hard work or good heredity?

Injuries and stress are the flip side to the success of Russian skaters

Russian figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva has already twice been a world champion and, by all accounts, was the main contender for the 2018 Winter Olympics gold. This was considered a few weeks before her eighteenth birthday last fall.

At the competitions held in October in Moscow, she laughed at ease. A few months earlier, she embodied on the ice the image of the anime character Sailor Moon in the costume of a Japanese schoolgirl, turning into a superheroine. Then she was the tragic heroine of Tolstoy Anna Karenina and joked: “In this program, I show that I will not be an old maid.”

She wore a toy cat like an amulet and became a prominent representative of the Russian Olympians. She Continue reading
