Pidhrushna took a hat-trick of medals at the 2013 Biathlon World Championships, where she won the gold in the sprint, was part of the women's relay team which won silver, and secured a bronze in the pursuit. For these achievements she was named as Ukraine's best sportswoman of 2013. Together with Juliya Dzhyma, Valj Semerenko and Vita Semerenko she won the gold medal in the Women's relay at the 2014 Winter Olympics, in Sochi, Russia. Pidhrushna took a break in her sport career at the end of the 2013-14 season, and was subsequently appointed Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports in the Ukrainian government. But on November 30, 2014, she gave an interview for biathlon.com.ua, in which she stated: "I took break in my sport career for a decree only.
