Happy 13th Birthday to Veronika! :hb:

Veronika Vladislavovna Zhilina is a Russian figure skater born on 15th May 2008.

Veronika was born in Severodvinsk and began skating at the FOK "Zvezdochka" Club before moving to the Children and Youth Sports School “Kaskad" in Arkhangelsk and then to Sambo 70 in the 2018/2019 season.

Veronika gained a lot of attention during the 2019 season of Russia's Ice Age Kids where she was on Ilia Averbukh's team

Here's some of her performances:

In the 2020-21 season Veronika along with her sister Alina and her mother followed Sergei Rozanov to Plushenko's Figure Skating Academy.

In the past few months her mother (who's name escapes me right now) has been coaching her - which hadn't gone so well :(

Veronika is know for her jumping abilities and is able to jump a 3A and 4T and has practiced various other quads in training.

She was the Russian Novice (Younger Age) Champion in 2019 and the Russian Novice (Older Age) Champion in 2020.

I just watched Nika's Danaerys program (Jenny of Old Stones) and omg what an amazing performance for one so young. People automatically assume she's a jumping bean because quads quads quads but I think she has a lot more potential than that. Once she gets a confidence boost with some wins under her belt, she'll be incredible.
