Alexandra "Sasha" Vyacheslavovna Trusova (Russian: Александра Вячеславовна Трусова, IPA: [ɐlʲɪˈksandrə ˈtrusəvə]; born 23 June 2004) is a Russian figure skater who currently holds the world record for the free skate (166.62 points). She is the 2021 World bronze medalist, the 2020 European bronze medalist, the 2019 Grand Prix Final bronze medalist, the 2019 Skate Canada champion, the 2019 Rostelecom Cup champion, the 2019 CS Ondrej Nepela Memorial champion, and a three-time Russian national medalist (2019 silver; 2020–21 bronze). As of August 2021, Trusova is the world's second highest ranked women's singles skater in the world by the International Skating Union.

Trusova is the first female skater to land the quad Lutz, quad flip, and quad toe loop jumps, the second to land the quad Salchow (after Miki Ando), and the first to land two and three ratified quads in a free skate, achieved at the 2018 Junior World Championships and the 2019 Nepela Trophy, respectively.[4][5][6] She currently holds four Guinness World Records; the fourth in recognition of her landed quadruple flip at the 2019 ISU Grand Prix Final.[7] Her technical score of 92.35 points in the free skate at the 2018 Junior Worlds was the highest ever recorded in women's singles skating at the junior and senior level until the GOE (Grade of Execution) system was changed at the end of 2017–18 season.

At 13 years old, Trusova won the first of her two World Junior Championship (2018, 2019) titles and the 2017 Junior Grand Prix Final, and was the youngest female to win these events. At the 2018 JGP Lithuania, she set another record by becoming the first female skater to land a quadruple jump in combination, a quad toe loop and a triple toe loop.[8] A few weeks later, she was the first female skater to land a quadruple Lutz jump in international competition, ratified at the 2018 JGP Armenia.[9] Trusova is the first and currently only female skater competing with four different types of quadruple jumpstoe loop, Salchow, flip, and Lutz. She is also the first female skater in history to score above 100 in technical elements when she recorded 100.20 technical points in the free skate at the 2019 Skate Canada.

Personal life[edit]

Trusova was born on 23 June 2004 in Ryazan.[10] She is the eldest of three children and has two younger brothers, Egor and Ivan.[11] An avid dog lover, Trusova has a pet chihuahua named Tina who often accompanies her to competitions,[12] a pet husky, Jack, and a miniature royal poodle, Lana, which she received at Rostelecom Cup for winning the 2019 World Junior Figure Skating Championships and for landing her first triple Axel in practice.[citation needed] A short biography of her career through her teenage years has been published in Russian, Alexandra Trusova. The Girl Who Fights Gravity: And Changes the World of Woman's Figure Skating, with an English translation released in March 2021.[13][14]

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Trusova began learning to skate in 2008.[10] She trained in Ryazan under Olga Shevtsova until 2015; she then moved to Moscow where she was coached by Alexander Volkov.[15] Eteri Tutberidze and Sergei Dudakov became her coaches in 2016.[10]

Trusova finished 4th at the 2017 Russian Junior Championships after placing 6th in the short program and 4th in the free skate.[16]

2017–2018 season: Junior international debut and achievement of quad in competition[edit]

Trusova debuted internationally in August 2017 at a 2017–18 ISU Junior Grand Prix (JGP) competition in Brisbane, Australia. Ranked first in both the short program and free skate, she won the gold medal ahead of teammate Anastasia Gulyakova.[17] She landed an underrotated quadruple Salchow in her free program. Her total score of 197.69 points was the third highest ever achieved by a ladies' single skater on the junior level at the time, behind only Alina Zagitova and Marin Honda.

She then finished first at JGP Belarus and qualified for the Junior Grand Prix Final.[18][19]

At the 2017–18 Junior Grand Prix Final, Trusova scored 73.25 points, breaking the junior ladies' world record for the short program. In the free skate, she scored 132.36 points, about 0.5 points less than what her teammate and training partner, Alena Kostornaia, scored. However, because of Trusova's 1.5 point lead in the short program, she won the competition by about 1 point.[20]

In January 2018, Trusova won the gold medal at the 2018 Russian Junior Championships after placing first in the short program and third in the free skate. Again, she narrowly beat her training partner and silver medalist Alena Kostornaia by only about 0.6 points.[21]

In March 2018, Trusova competed at the 2018 Junior Worlds where she won the gold medal after placing first in both the short program and the free skate. Her free skating score of 153.49 points set the new world record for the junior free program. Her total score of 225.52 points was also the new world record for the junior combined total score. At this competition, Trusova became the first female skater to land the quad toe loop, the second to land the quad Salchow behind Miki Ando, and the first to land two ratified quads in a free skate.[4] She landed the quadruple jump for the first time in 16 years since Miki Ando in 2002. Her technical score of 92.35 points in the free skate at the 2018 Junior World was the highest ever recorded in women's figure skating on both the junior and senior level. Her total score of 225.52 would have placed her first in the senior women's World Championships that year as well, despite a significantly lower program component scores and the absence of a choreographic sequence.[11]

2018–2019 season: Second Junior World title[edit]

Trusova started her season by competing in the 2018 Junior Grand Prix (JGP) series. At her first JGP event of the season she won the gold medal in Kaunas, Lithuania. She was ranked first in both the short program and the free skate, and won the gold medal by a margin of about 30 points over silver medalist Kim Ye-lim.[22] As of September 2018, her scores at this competition are the highest scores achieved in an international junior ladies competition. At this competition Trusova became the first female skater to land a quad in combination - a quad toe loop and triple toe loop, receiving 16.14 points for this combination. She also became the first female skater to attempt a quad Lutz in a competition. She landed the jump, but it was under-rotated and not ratified.[8][23]

At her second JGP event of the season, she won another gold medal in Yerevan, Armenia. Again she placed first in both the short program and the free skate, winning the gold medal by a margin of about 33 points over silver medalist and teammate Alena Kanysheva. Trusova also upgraded her earlier free skate world record score. At this competition Trusova became the first female skater to land a quadruple Lutz in international competition. A few days earlier Anna Shcherbakova had landed two quadruple Lutz jumps in a domestic competition.[9] With two Junior Grand Prix gold medals Trusova qualified for the 2018–19 Junior Grand Prix Final.[24]

At the JGP Final she won the silver medal after placing second in both the short program and the free skate.[25] She was outscored by the gold medalist, teammate and training partner Alena Kostornaia, by about 2.5 points. In the free skate, Trusova landed a clean quad toe loop but stepped out of her first quad Lutz and fell on a second quad Lutz that was also under-rotated.[26]

Competing next at the 2019 Russian Championships, Trusova placed second in the short program and second in the free skate, winning the silver medal overall.[27] In the free skate, she landed a quad Lutz but fell on an under-rotated quad toe loop, finishing behind teammate Anna Shcherbakova by 0.07 points. Speaking afterward, Trusova said she planned to work more on her quad jumps prior to the 2019 Junior World Championships.[28]

Trusova successfully defended her Junior World title at the 2019 World Junior Championships after placing second in the short program to teammate Anna Shcherbakova and winning the free skate.[29]

2019–2020 season: Senior international debut[edit]

Trusova made her international senior debut at the 2019 CS Ondrej Nepela Memorial where she won the gold medal and set several new world records. In free skating she became the first lady ever to land three quadruple jumps when she landed a quad Lutz and two quad toe loops, the second of which was in combination. She set the new free skating record of 163.78 points, and the new combined total record of 238.69 points. Her technical element score (TES) of 98.34 points in free skating was also the new world record. She earned 14.72 points for her quadruple Lutz which was the new record for the highest valued single jump.

On October 5, Trusova skated in the team competition at the Japan Open, where she won the event with four quads: a quad Salchow, a quad Lutz, a quad toe-triple toe, and a quad toe-Euler-triple Salchow combination, scoring over 160 points. Since it was not an official ISU competition, her historic number of quads were not officially recognized as the first in international competition.

Trusova made her ISU Grand Prix debut at the 2019 Skate Canada International, where she won the gold medal after placing third in the short program and first in the free skate.[30][31] At this competition, with a quad toe loop-triple toe loop and quad toe loop-Euler-triple Salchow, she became the first lady to land two quad-triple jump combinations in one program at an ISU sanctioned international competition. She also became the first lady to land a quad-triple jump combination in the second half of the free skate. At the same competition she set the new free skating record of 166.62 points and also the new combined total record of 241.02 points. Her technical element score (TES) of 100.20 points in free skating was also the new world record.[32] At her second Grand Prix, the 2019 Rostelecom Cup, Trusova placed second in the short program behind Evgenia Medvedeva.[33] She was first in the free skate, despite falling on her opening quad Salchow attempt and another fall on a triple combination, and won her second Grand Prix gold medal.[34]

Trusova's results qualified her for the Grand Prix Final in Torino. Skating in the short program, Trusova opted to attempt the triple Axel in competition for the first time, but under-rotated it and fell. Consequently, she placed fifth in that segment, fourteen points behind first-place Alena Kostornaia. Trusova said that the decision to introduce the triple Axel had been taken in light of its being landed "more or less consistently" in practices in the preceding week, and remarked "I like to risk, and without risking, I wouldn’t achieve what I have by this moment."[35] In the free skate, Trusova attempted the quad flip in competition for the first time, landing it cleanly, alongside a quad Lutz and a quad toe loop, but doubled an intended quad Salchow and fell on a second quad toe attempt. She became the first female skater to attempt five quads in a free skate, as well as the first to attempt four different types of quads. Third in the free, won the bronze medal behind Kostornaia and Anna Shcherbakova.[36]

At the 2020 Russian Championships, Trusova placed third in the short program, opting not to attempt the triple Axel.[37] The free skate proved a struggle, with two falls on her quad Lutz and quad flip attempts, and doubling out on her first attempted quad toe loop. She went on to land her second quad toe attempt, as well as her remaining triple jumps, and remained in third place. She described herself as "not pleased" with the performance, but said she hoped to master the quad loop by the end of the season.[38]

Competing at the 2020 European Championships, Trusova doubled and turned out of a planned triple Axel. She scored 74.95 points and placed 3rd in that segment behind Alena Kostornaia and Anna Shcherbakova.[39] In the free skate, she fell on two planned quads, but landed her quad toe-triple toe combination successfully. She placed third overall behind her two teammates and won the bronze medal.[40] Trusova was also assigned to compete at the 2020 World Championships in Montreal, but these were cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On May 6, 2020, it was announced by Russian media outlets Nevasport and Sport24 that Trusova had decided to part ways with coach Eteri Tutberidze in favor of joining Evgeni Plushenko's academy. Trusova was joined in the departure by coach Sergei Rozanov, as well as novice training-mates Veronika and Alyona Zhilina.[41][42] According to Sport24, Trusova chose to leave the Tutberidze group due to lack of attention from Tutberidze herself during the months following the cancellation of the World Championships, as well as her overall dissatisfaction with her position in the training group.[42]

2020–2021 season: World bronze medal[edit]

Trusova performed at the 2020 Russian Test Skates and successfully executed a quad toe in combination.[43] At the second stage of Russian Cup held in Moscow Trusova made a mistake on her Triple Axel jump in the short program and placed third behind Kamila Valieva and Daria Usacheva. However, in the free skate Trusova cleanly executed two quadruple toe-loops, one in combination, and won the free skate to win gold. At the fourth stage in Kazan, she stepped out on her opening triple Axel in the short program and placed second behind teammate Alena Kostornaia. In the free skate, Trusova cleanly landed three quads but fell on a fourth, as well as one a triple jump. Despite these mistakes, Trusova scored 171.21 points and won her second straight competition.[44]

In the short program at the 2020 Rostelecom Cup Trusova fell on a downgraded triple Axel and, as a result, placed third behind Kostornaia and Elizaveta Tuktamysheva with a score of 70.81 which was her lowest international result since September 2017.[45] She encountered similar problems in the free skate, falling four times and receiving negative grades of execution on two other jumping passes. Her final score of 198.93 saw her drop down to fourth place, unprecedented for Trusova in international competition and her first off-podium finish since the 2017 Russian Junior Championships.[46]

Competing at the 2021 Russian Championships, Trusova placed fourth in the short program behind Shcherbakova, Valieva and Usacheva.[47] She landed two quad Lutzes in the free skate, placing third in that segment and winning the bronze medal. Speaking afterward about dealing with injury, she said that "two quads in the long program is very little for me and I'll try to do more, but for today, this was the maximum content that I was able to do."[48]

With the European Championships cancelled, Trusova instead participated in the 2021 Channel One Trophy, a televised team event. Trusova was elected for the Time of Firsts team captained by Evgenia Medvedeva, and placed fourth in the short program, the only lady on her team to skate cleanly.[49] In the free skate she made errors on both quad Lutz attempts, placing third in that segment, with the team finishing in second place overall.[50]

Trusova was selected to compete for the Russian Federation at the 2021 World Championships in March 2021 held in Stockholm. She was considered a major contender for the podium.[51] In the short program, Trusova placed twelfth after putting a hand down on her triple Lutz due to overrotation, and consequently failing to execute the second part of her jump combination.[52] In her free skate, she attempted five quads, falling on two of them; however, due to the high base value of her program and the fact that several of the other podium favorites also made mistakes, and due to her successfully landing three of her quads, Trusova was able to finish third overall and take the bronze medal, 8.57 points ahead fourth-place skater Karen Chen. Standing on the podium alongside Shcherbakova and Tuktamysheva, this was only the second time that a single country had swept the ladies' podium at the World Championships, after the United States in 1991.[53] On May 1, it was announced that Trusova was returning to the Sambo-70 training center under previous coach Tutberidze.[54]

2021–2022 season[edit]

Trusova received her Grand Prix assignments to the 2021 Skate America and the 2021 NHK Trophy in August. [55][56] She debuted her programs for the Olympic season at the 2021 Russian test skate event in September held in Chelyabinsk, where she cleanly executed a five quad free program for the first time (however, as the event was not ISU sanctioned, her feat could not be validated as any sort of international record). Later in the month, olympics.com reported that Trusova "won the U.S. International Figure Skating Classic on Saturday (18 September)", landing three of five planned quads in her free skate held at the Skating Club of Boston in Harwood, Massachusetts.[57]

Skating technique[edit]

Trusova's skating technique is distinguished by her ability to compete with her significant repertoire of quad jumps which as of 2021 are unrivaled by other women competitors.[58] Her ability to successfully land her quad jumps has made her especially competitive in her free skate performances due to the enhanced and higher scoring allocated to quad jumps in women's competition. The ISU currently does not allow quads in the women's short program, leading Trusova to rely on the execution of her quads exclusively during her free skate programs.[59] At the 2021 World Championships she had planned five quad jumps for her free skate, managing to land three of them successfully and moving her from 12th place after the short program to medal in 3rd place following the completion of her free skate.[58]

At the 2018 JGP Lithuania, Trusova became the first female skater to land a quadruple jump in combination: a quad toe loop with a triple toe loop.[8] A few weeks later, she was the first female skater to land a quadruple Lutz jump in international competition, ratified at the 2018 JGP Armenia.[9] Trusova is the first and currently only female skater competing with four different types of quadruple jumpstoe loop, Salchow, flip, and Lutz.[citation needed]

Business and industry endorsements[edit]

Trusova has represented Adidas as a brand ambassador since 2018, and has appeared in digital advertisements for the brand.[60] She became a brand ambassador for the Japanese-produced Ajinomoto product Amino Vital in July 2020.[61] In 22 January 2021, Swiss luxury watch brand Maurice Lacroix announced Trusova as the latest Friend of the Brand to join their ML Crew.[62] Trusova also became an endorser for the Russian-Belarusian brand of dairy products Verkhovye.[63] In April 2021, she appeared in a 30 second advertisement promoting Adidas products in their "Impossible is Nothing" campaign.[64]
