Evgenia Medvedeva: My father is Armenian, but I’m more Russian

Two-time world figure skating champion Evgenia Medvedeva spoke about her Armenian roots, R Sport reported.

“My father is Armenian. However, I am not that familiar with the Armenian culture. I have never skated under Armenian composers. The Armenian cuisine, probably, isn’t my type as well, so I’m more Russian,” said she.

Evgenia Medvedeva grabbed two silver medals at PyeongChang 2018 Olympics.

Arman Babasyan, Medvedeva’s father, said that his daughter had changed her second name with his consent.

Evgenia Medvedeva’s mother, Zhanna Devyatova, is a former figure skater. Arman Babasyan and Devyatova are divorced.
