Biography

Alina Zagitova is one of Russia’s finest ever figure skaters, and her country’s first ever skater to achieve the feat of winning Olympic gold, the World Figure Skating Championships, European Figure Skating Championships and the Grand Prix of Figure skating. Her dominance, particularly over the last couple of years, has been extraordinary – but question marks remain over whether she will keep her momentum going toward Beijing 2022, after a difficult last 12 months for the Izhevsk-born athlete.

Still just 17, the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games was the highlight of her remarkable career so far. Aged 15, she won the gold medal with an elegant, poised, but technically terrific performance.

Skating to ‘Don Quixote’, she was quick and precise, executing moves with ease to score 239.57 points. She landed seven triple jumps and received level-fours on her spins and step sequence. “I haven’t fully realised yet that I’ve won,” Zagitova said afterwards. “I need some time to understand that I won the Olympic Games.”

Only strong people remain in sport. You can learn a lot from them."
