Alina Zagitova and Evgenia Medvedeva are Compatriots and Rivals


Two of the youngest medalists from the 2018 Winter Olympics are rivals and compariots. Russian figure skaters Alina Zagitova and Evgenia Medvedeva both medaled in Pyeongchang, taking the gold and silver respectively. Although Zagitova has only been skating internationally for 2 years, she and Medvedeva are among the sport's elite. The 18-year-old Medvedeva is already a highly decorated international skater, as a two-time European champion, and a two-time Winter Olympic silver medalist. But her 15-year-old compatriot, Zagitova is also a European champion, and now a gold medalist.
