In the French city of Grenoble ended the Grand Prix in figure skating and decided the finalists, which will be held in Vancouver from 6 to 9 December. Alas, 19-year-old Russian figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva in the final missed: because of the two failed jumps she was only in fourth place.

First place went to Japanese skater Rika Kihira, the second is another Japanese athlete Mai Mihara, third — American Brady Tennell. In the end, Russia at the Grand Prix final in women’s figure skating will present Alina Sagitova, Elizaveta Tuktamysheva and Sophia Samodurova. In other categories, too, have our athletes: all of Russia 10 vouchers from 24.

This is the second Grand Prix finals in a row that Eugene Medvedev conceded a year ago, she was unable to participate due to injury, and now due to a lack of a strong rental.

His mistakes on the ice, the athlete explained the nerves:

What happened during the long program? Frankly, I do not want again to call his performance terrible. It is one hundred percent my nerves, I admit my mistakes, I’m not one of those who denies

— said Medvedev told reporters.

Also, the skater admitted that he lives in an atmosphere of hatred and negativity, and this greatly affects her:

I need to learn to live with the pressure that I’m under now. I was ready to be condemned, the discussions, the expectations that people will stand and from the corner to just talk. To say what I am and how bad I am. What people will be divided into two camps. But honestly, I did not expect that everything will be in such numbers. This amount of negativity and, most interestingly, such amount of hatred I didn’t expect. I need to learn to live with it.

We will remind that after the Olympic games in 2018, where Evgenia Medvedeva won the silver medal, she left her coach Eteri Tutberidze to canadian Brian Orser, who holds the current season. In Canada, according to rumors, the girl already has a new young man.
