In an exclusive interview, the double Olympic silver medallist and two-time world champion talks of health challenges this season, but says she’s not ready to hang up her skates – yet.
“There is this fire inside of me [and] it really helps me to overcome difficult situations.” Evgenia Medvedeva has needed that fire these last few months, the Olympic silver medallist at PyeongChang 2018 and two-time world champion in figure skating having faced a bad back injury as well as falling sick in November, during the COVID-19 pandemic, all while making a move from her adopted training home of Toronto back to Russia.
Medvedeva, now 21, hopes to continue to be able to skate again. She hasn’t competed internationally in nearly 15 months, since winning the silver medal at Rostelecom Cup in Nov. 2019.
