Anastasia Gubanova, who competed on behalf of Georgia, won a gold medal at the ISU European Championship taking place in Espoo, Finland.
Gubanova is the first to bring Georgia a gold in Figure Skating.
“At the end, Gubanova knelt down on the ice, overcome by emotion, and broke into tears of joy and relief.
The 21-year-old posted a season’s best of 130.10 points and racked up 199.91 points overall to take the title. It was also the first Women’s medal for Georgia since Elene Gedevanishvili’s bronze in 2012,” writes the International Skating Union.
“I have not realized it yet, I am in shock. I was so nervous before my skate and mentally it was very tough,” Gubanova said.
“At the end of my performance, there were a lot of emotions. Mostly I was happy that I was able to overcome myself. This medal means a lot to me,” she noted.
