Evgenia Medvedeva, famous Russian figure skater and two-time world champion who managed to stun her audience on more than one occasion by donning revealing costumes during performances, has revealed that the thing she fears the most is actually butterflies, Winnipeg Free Press reports.
"Everyone else is afraid of spiders and I’m afraid of butterflies. (If a butterfly comes near) I will start laughing and crying, both at the same time", she said.
Medvedeva won a silver medal in women's single skating events at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. In 2017, she also won the European Championships in Ostrava, Czech Republic, setting world records in the short and free skate programmes, and breaking South Korea's Yuna Kim's world record total score from the 2010 Olympics with a total score of 229.71.
