Medvedeva Is The New Snow Queen Diva

Evgenia Medvedeva
Sixteen-year-old Evgenia Medvedeva started giggling when she learned her free skate score at the world championships had set a record. Then she summed it up in English: "Wow."

The Russian teen capped a dominant debut season last 3 April with a world title, earning 150.10 points to break Yuna Kim's record from the 2010 Olympics. Medvedeva moved up from third after the short program to add to her Grand Prix Final and European titles.

Medvedeva looked a bit hesitant during her previous short program in her first senior worlds. But she was captivating from the start last 3 April. She landed seven triple jumps with never a hint of trouble, throwing an arm above her head on many of them.

It was a performance both youthful and mature at the same time. The program opens with Medvedeva peering out into the crowd with a look of wide-eyed wonder.

When it was over, she thrust both fists into the air in triumph.

"Actually I don't really have any emotions right now - I left everything on the ice," she said afterward.
