15-Year-Old Alina Zagitova Wins Gold in Figure Skating

Russian skater Alina Zagitova became the second-youngest Olympic gold medalist (by 28 days) in the women’s singles event behind American Tara Lipinski in 1998, after beating her idol Evgenia Medvedeva.

Medvedeva had to settle for the silver medal.

Kaetlyn Osmond, who had considered quitting the sport, won bronze to give Canada four overall medals in figure skating.

“My hands were shaking, but my body was doing everything I’d trained to do,” Zagitova said Friday after a rare tie in the free skate earned her the top spot because she beat Medvedeva in the short program two days earlier, when both women broke the previous world-record score.
