Do you ever worry that Medvedeva is too skinny? Is her body normal for a skater? Her legs and hands look like toothpicks while her torso looks normal. Idk watching her sometimes makes me think that she needs to eat more. Maybe I read too much into this since I've battled eating disorders in the past and maybe I see the "monster" everywhere I turn but looking at her body makes me worry and sad because I like her very much and I don't want her to be unhealthy.
I think her weight is fine. I mean, sure, she’s on the slender side of the average among figure skating ladies, but I wouldn’t say she’s skinny, more like, wiry? Or at least that was my impression of her about 2-3 years ago. Over the last couple of seasons I’ve noticed her body curves gradually filling out more, which is perfectly normal for girls of that age.
Look, very nice body proportion she has now:
I bet her team does pay a lot of attention to her nutrient intake, so I wouldn’t worry about that either.
What I’m worried about most, currently, is her injury T___T According to a new interview, the damage is way more serious than I thought. It’s a metatarsal fracture on her right foot, which has been bothering her even before Rostelecom. She skated on painkillers all the way through NHK and looks like that might’ve worsened her condition. As of today her prospect of joining the GPF is uncertain.
I also heard a bunch of speculation about how the Russian Fed would place all their bets and pull all their weight for Alina Zagitova to be the Olympic favorite should Janny withdraw from GPF. To which I say: really? Can I for once ask y’all to leave the girls in peace and let them skate to their best ability without putting insane pressure on any of them? Is this the year 2017 and are we watching a sport, or has time not moved forward since the Cold War?
