Alina Zagitova, gold medalist in women’s figure skating at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics, has been making headlines with her bold run on her Instagram account. Her instagram account has been rather quiet lately, but some fans may be pleased with her latest post. On the other hand, mixed feelings can be seen among fans.

The dance is very bewitching, but… (from her Instagram)

Born in 2002, Zagitova is a figure skater who, at just 15 years and 9 months old, won gold at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics. However, her performance subsequently declined due to a poor performance and she decided to suspend her participation in competitions.

She did not just retire, but commented that she had no intention of standing still or leaving. In the meantime, she participated in ice shows and other events. Then, she appeared at the “Figure Skating Russian Championships” as a member of the media. She was also invited to be a reporter at the Beijing Olympics, and she commented, “I miss it. I am so happy to be able to immerse myself in this atmosphere again,” she wrote.

Zagitova is also known as an influencer. She has over 1.12 million followers on her Instagram account. She has many Japanese followers, and her posts are frequently commented on in Japanese, and she herself often communicates in Japanese.

However, the frequency of Zagitova’s Instagram updates has dropped drastically recently. This is due to the “Instagram ban” by the Russian government. Since the invasion of Ukraine, Russia, which has been tightening its control over speech, has also tightened regulations on social networking services. Insta, which has 80 million users in Russia, was also subject to the ban.

In response, many Russian influencers, including Sagitova, moved to Telegram, a social networking service originating in Russia. Somehow, however, they were still able to update their Instagram accounts even after the ban, and Zagitova was also updating her Instagram for a while, while trying to direct her followers to her Telegram account.

This time, it was a rare Instagram post. She is skating in a Spiderman-like pose with her legs spread wide apart. Zagitova’s black see-through outfit is full of her charm. Perhaps it is Zagitova’s desire to make people forget the tragedy of war, even if only for a moment, but we can’t help but feel the darkness deep down in her heart from the blackness of the outfit and the lighting.

We can only hope that the day will come when we can enjoy her contribution without thinking about it.
