Evgenia Armanovna Medvedeva (born in Moscow, Russia November 19, 1999), is a Russian figure skater. She is the 2018 Winter Olympic silver medalist, a two-time World champion (2016 & 2017), a three-time European medalist (winner in 2016 & 2017, silver medalist in 2018), a two-time Grand Prix Final champion (2015-16 & 2016-17), and the 2016 and 2017 Russian national champion. Additionally, on the junior level, she is the champion of the 2015 World Junior Championships and 2014-15 JGP Final. She currently holds the record of the highest senior short program, freeskate, and combined score.

Personal Life Edit

Medvedeva's hobbies include studying foreign languages, drawing, and listening to music. She is a fan of the South Korean K-pop EXO group and Japanese animation, especially Sailor Moon and the Ghibli studio movies

She has the surname of her mother, Jeanne Medvedeva (graphic artist and former skater), and that of her maternal family Medvedev (meaning bear in Russian), since her parents divorced when she was little. Her father of Armenian origin, Arman Babasyan, is an independent entrepreneur.

Despite being among the most decorated figure skaters, Medvedeva is rarely recognized in public.

Early Career Edit

Medvedeva's mother is a former figure skater, and Medvedeva was introduced to figure skating to correct her posture. Her former coach, Eteri Tutberidze, initially considered her skills to be inferior to that of other students. She had a tendency to fall frequently, and in an attempt to stop this habit, Tutberidze would drag her across the ice. Afraid of being heaved again, Medvedeva developed a consistent jumping technique.
