Polina Sergeyevna Shelepen (Russian: Полина Серге́евна Шелепень; born 28 July 1995) is a figure skater. She is a two-time (2009, 2011) JGP Final silver medalist and a two-time (2011, 2012) Russian national junior silver medalist. After competing for Russia through 2012, Shelepen switched to Israel in 2013.

Career[edit]

For Russia[edit]

Shelepen with former coach Eteri Tutberidze

Shelepen began skating at the age of four-and-a-half and learned her first triple at eleven years old. Shelepen has a full arsenal of triple jumps and has attempted the quadruple Salchow in practice.[1][2] In 2011, she told an interviewer that her mother took her to the rink because she "didn't like to go to kindergarten because there everyone had to eat a cream of wheat".[1]

In the 2009–2010 season, Shelepen won her two Junior Grand Prix assignments and qualified for the 2009–2010 Junior Grand Prix Final where she won silver. She then competed at the 2010 World Junior Championships and finished 4th.

In the 2010-2011 season, Shelepen grew ten cm, resulting in some coordination problems. She won gold at the JGP in France, bronze in the Czech Republic, and finished 5th at the 2010–2011 Junior Grand Prix Final. At the 2011 Russian Championships, Shelepen finished 7th on the senior level and won silver on the junior level. She finished 7th at the 2011 World Junior Championships.

In the 2011–12 season, Shelepen continued on the Junior Grand Prix, winning events in Latvia and Romania to qualify for the 2011–2012 Junior Grand Prix Final.[1] She won the silver medal at the Final. At the 2012 Russian Championships, she finished 10th on the senior level and won another silver medal on the junior level. Shelepen was originally the first alternate for the 2012 World Junior Championships but replaced Elizaveta Tuktamysheva who withdrew from the competition in order to prepare for the following season. At the Junior Worlds event, Shelepen was 12th in short program and 4th place in the free skate, finishing 6th overall.

In July 2012, Shelepen parted ways from her long-time coach Eteri Tutberidze and began training at the CSKA Moscow ice rink with Svetlana Sokolovskaya. She finished 5th at the 2012 Nebelhorn Trophy and 10th at her first senior Grand Prix assignment, the 2012 Skate Canada. In November, Shelepen withdrew from the 2012 NHK Trophy due to worsening of a long-standing ankle injury.[3] She resumed training in December[4] and competed at the 2012 Golden Spin of Zagreb, finishing 5th. She later withdrew from the 2013 Russian Championships.[5]

For Israel[edit]

On 23 March 2013, Sokolovskaya confirmed that Shelepen had received her Israeli passport and wished to compete for Israel.[6] The Russian skating federation released Shelepen in May 2013.[7] Before she may compete internationally, the International Skating Union requires that she sit out a certain period of time according to the rules for single skaters.

Personal life[edit]

Since she generally trained during the day, Shelepen attended an evening school which is normally for adults.[2]
