Biografia

Alina ZAGITOVA

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 Moscow-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.”

Those in the know about figure skating tricks and techniques enthuse about Zagitova. She has a signature move – the triple lutz-triple loop combination – that she performs flawlessly, and she is also able to pull off other ultra-hard triple loop combinations, including the triple flip. Other combinations in her repertoire include the triple futz-triple toe, double axel-triple toe, and the triple flip-double toe-double loop. She has broken four scoring world record.
