Russia’s Alina Zagitova, who won the gold medal in women’s figure skating at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics, wrote a message on her Instagram account saying, “I miss you. What the hell happened…!

Zagitova, a figure skater born in 2002, won the gold medal at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics at the young age of 15 years and 9 months. But after that, her performance slumped due to poor health, and she decided to suspend her participation in competitions. She did not just retire, however, but made comments such as “I don’t intend to stand still or leave.”

In the meantime, she was participating in ice shows and other events. Then, she appeared at the “Figure Skating Russian Championships” as a member of the media. She congratulated Kamila Valieva, who won her first competition at the age of 15, the same age that Zagitova won the gold in the Olympics.

After the Russian Championships, Zagitova was chosen to be a reporter for the Beijing Olympics. On her Instagram, Zagitova posted a photo with an ice rink in the background. She spread her arms, looking comfortable, and said, “Beijing, 2022! This is where the Olympics will start. I miss it. I’m so happy to be able to immerse myself in this atmosphere again,” she wrote.

Later, however, the Beijing Olympics broke out into a doping scandal in Valieva. Nevertheless, the curtain came down on the Beijing Olympics, and Zagitova wrote her final message.

During this time, there have been many happy, sad, unexpected, and welcome moments. Thank you so much to all the athletes who have performed so well, and of course to all the coaches! We are so proud of you.”

“As a correspondent, I was able to see the other side of the Olympics. It was a wonderful experience.”

“It’s great that China was able to host the Olympics at the highest level despite the difficult times.”

“Thank you Beijing, I will miss you.”

Finally, he wrote “Many thanks” in Chinese.

As a gold medalist in the previous Games, she would have been asked to deal with the difficult situation regarding the doping scandal that occurred at the Beijing Olympics. Nevertheless, Zagitova looks very happy in the message, which shows that she has done her best.

We still can’t get enough of  Zagitova. ……!
