UTV | COLOMBO – Fifteen-year-old Alina Zagitova won Olympic athletes from Russia’s first gold medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics in the women’s single figure skating.

She followed her short programme world record 82.92 with 156.65 points in the free dance to finish 1.31 points ahead of compatriot Evgenia Medvedeva.

Skating last, Medvedeva, 18, looked to have done enough to overhaul Zagitova but the judges scored their free dance routines equally in Pyeongchang.

Canada’s Kaetlyn Osmond took bronze.

OAR have now won 14 medals at these Games, while Zagitova is the second youngest women’s figure skating champion in history after American Tara Lipinski in 1998.
