Under new coach, Yevgenia Medvedeva to make season debut at Autumn Classic.
TORONTO – Phase two of Yevgenia Medvedeva’s competitive skating career begins this week, with a long road ahead.
Medvedeva, 18, who moved to Toronto to train under coach Brian Orser in June, knows she is at the very beginning of what she expects to be a four-year project to become a changed and improved skater before the 2022 Olympics.
Yet the publicity and heated reaction on social media generated by her coaching change from Eteri Tutberidze in Moscow to Orser was so enormous that people will be closely watching her competitive debut under the new coaching team at the Autumn Classic International, a Challenger Series event Thursday to Saturday in nearby Oakville, Ont. The event will stream live on Skate Canada’s Dailymotion page.
The reigning Olympic silver medalist and two-time world champion is trying to keep it all in perspective. 👇👇👇
