Алина Загитова пробует себя в хоккее. А что, на коньках стоять умеет — осталась клюшка pic.twitter.com/GvjqMtaL3M— SPORT24.ru (@sport24_ru) 29 декабря 2018 г.
The 16-year-old managed to place a hockey puck on its edge and raise it with a stick over her head. She also shared failed attempts at performing the stunt in her Instagram stories.
It’s not the first time that the promising Russian figure skater has wowed an audience: in November, at the Gran-Prix Rostelecom Cup in Moscow she broke a record she had herself set in Germany at the Nebelhorn Trophy by scoring 80.78 points during the short programme.
The year 2018 has been particularly successful for Zagitova, who grabbed a gold medal at the Pyeongchang Olympics, as well as secured first prize at the European championship.
