Medvedeva compared the popularity of football and figure skating

Evgenia Medvedeva considered that football and figure skating are equally popular in Russia

Russian figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva compared the popularity of football and figure skating. Her words are quoted by Match TV.

“It is clear that in our country our own Cristiano Ronaldo or our own Messi has not yet been born. But let’s remember that any sport is tough, how difficult, ”said the athlete. She considered that the excitement around figure skating arose during the 2014 Olympics and reached its peak at the Games in Pyeongchang. According to Medvedeva, football and figure skating in Russia are currently at approximately the same level of interest among the audience.

Medvedeva is a two-time world and European champion. At the Olympics in Pyeongchang, the athlete won a silver medal, losing to compatriot Alina Zagitova.

On January 21, three-time Olympic champion in figure skating, State Duma deputy Irina Rodnina compared football in Russia and in Europe. In her opinion, the Russians do not try to attract people with their game, so domestic football is of no interest to anyone abroad.
