Of Ice and Fame. Medvedeva v Zagitova: friends off the ice, rivals on it
Maybe, Evgenia Medvedeva was slandered a little. They gave preference to a more pronounced sporting accent in Alina Zagitova's program before Zhenya's more expressive art.
But I think - no, I feel (so accurately) that the essence of the drama that has occurred is not in its denouement. If to argue from a sporting point of view, Medvedeva in vain chose"Anna Karenina" for a free program. You know, there for the heroine everything ends badly. Anna challenged the light, the established order - the light rejected her. Zhenya Medvedev's choice of the plot - as a person deeply and subtly feeling - connected to Anna's fate. And in some ways it predetermined its figurine-destiny fate. And the dramatic turn of Pyeongchang. And what will follow.
Think about it: Eugenia 18, and Alina 15. First of all, with a request to ponder, I appeal to the kind ladies. Remember yourself as an 18-year-old. And how you looked at that age at the Pigali, who are three years younger. And if such a bastard did something for herself? And if for you personally it became a barrier in some way? But here, probably, such devils rose with guns in the girl's heart!
No matter how Zhenya depicted now political correctness and even all-round friendliness towards Alina, it's hard to believe that her soul is not attacked by these very devils. Not only that the cocksucker three years younger she crossed her path to historical victory and glory - so this creature jumped out like a snuffbox, right at your side! And it hurt you in this very side immediately hurt ...
But! There is one subtle point. And so he just admits that Alina, who was born on time, and who was ripe for the Games in accordance with the age qualification, and shot a shot at the apple, did not give Eugenia a burning and unbearable pain. However, only Zhenya knows about this. And she certainly already knows for herself the answer to the question, what is most important for her now in life. And it may very well be that she got engaged with figure skating for many years. And now she is led on the ice by her love for her occupation. And what the ice will give her in return - it's not so important for Zhenya.
And maybe, before us the story is not even about who defeated Medvedeva's early duel with her newly appeared rival. And about life values. After all, at the disposal of Alina Zagitova - an example of Tara Lipinski, who won the Games in the same 15 and quickly with skating rounded, having received all the bonuses due from the title (and Tara had already told her hello with a hint!). Yes, and our girls from the galaxy of recent years, regardless of the titles they won, the calculation to this day extended for a short time. Adelina Sotnikova, Julia Lipnitskaya, Elizaveta Tuktamysheva, Elena Radionova ...
Nobody, not even the coach, yet, perhaps, knows what metal material is kept in the nature of this girl, skating so far with really steel confidence.
But I will follow Zhenya Medvedeva with increasing interest. It may very well be that before us is a man who looked to us here by mistake from another time ... When for some strange personalities the process itself was more important than the result obtained and the rewards to be rewards.
