The Russian Olympic Committee’s new silver medalist is unhappy with her performance during the figure skating women’s singles free skate on Thursday.
After a shocking performance from Russian teen Kamila Valieva — who was already shrouded in controversy due to a positive drug test — Alexandra Trusova secured a second-place finish. Trusova had entered the free skate in fourth place following the short program.
But the moments after her victory were not happy ones — cameras showed a visibly distraught Trusova, 17, crying and yelling in her native Russian.
Multiple outlets including Reuters reported that Trusova was lamenting, making comments like, “Everyone has a gold medal, everyone, but not me. I hate skating. I hate it. I hate this sport. I will never skate again. Never.”
