Russian figure skater Kamila Valiyeva, aka “Despair”. She entered the Beijing Olympics as a strong contender for the gold medal, but was rocked by doping problems and finished fourth in the competition.


While fans were hoping for a gold medal at the next Olympics, Russia launched an invasion of Ukraine, and Russian athletes were barred from international competitions such as the World Championships. War is a completely unacceptable act, and the Russian government, which is leading the war, is to be blamed.


But to what extent should a mere 15-year-old figure skater be held “jointly and severally liable” for the war? Various opinions are flying around in the international public opinion.


Some people were concerned about Valiyeva’s mental health. Shaken by the doping problem and missing out on the gold medal she was sure to win, her future as an athlete is in the dark

However, Valiyeva has now uploaded a photo of herself enjoying the shoot, which has created a lot of buzz. Dressed in a green skirt, Valiyeva’s beautiful hair is blowing in the wind, and she is smiling with her white teeth. Fans must have been relieved to see that she looked so energetic and cheerful.

The bright green color and this smile. However, she may be holding back her true feelings… (from her Instagram)

Valiyeva, born April 26, 2006 in Kazan, Russia, won the 2019 Junior Grand Prix Final and the 2020 World Junior Figure Skating Championships before entering the senior ranks in the 2021/2022 season. She suddenly won back-to-back Skate Canada and Russian Cups with the highest scores in the world.


At the Russian Championships, she won for the first time, breaking her own world record by a wide margin, despite not being recognized by the International Skating Union (ISU). She also won the European Championships in January this year. She was already in a position to win the Beijing Olympics, but as mentioned above, she missed out on a medal.


Figure skating is a sport with a short life span. That is why many people would like to see Valiyeva cherish each and every day of her life. Peace is still an absolute prerequisite for her to have a meaningful time as a figure skater. In this photo, we can feel her complicated mind distract herself from her current uncertain situation by concentrating on her “talent” activities.


I hope that peace will soon come to the world, and that the genius Valiyeva will be given an environment where she can concentrate on figure skating.
