How did Polina Edmunds Make Her Money & Wealth?
The daughter of a figure skating coach, Polina Edmunds was born on May 18, 1998, in Santa Clara, California. Unsurprisingly, she first took to the ice at just twenty months old. By the time she was four, she participated in skating and ballet lessons. Growing up, her biggest role models were Michelle Kwan, Sasha Cohen, and Caroline Kostner. Sharks Ice Rink is where she trains currently.
Many hours spent at the rink, Edmunds eventually reached the junior level by her early teens. In 2011, she participated in the US Championships for the first time, where she placed seventh. Two seasons later, she would win the title at the same competition in 2013.
For the 2013-14 season, she started to receive coaching from Frank Carroll in addition to David Glynn, and her mother. From there, she made her debut in the ISU Junior Grand Prix, where she won the gold medal. Continuing her streak, she later received another gold at the Junior Grand Prix held in Belarus.
Fast forward to 2014, and her skills had landed her a coveted spot at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Though she didn’t manage to finish on the podium, she did place seventh in the SP. Just a month later, she finished eighth at the 2014 World Championships in Japan.
Since then, Edmunds has continued to take part in numerous events such as the 2015 US Championships, Four Continents, International Classic, and NHK Trophy. More recently, she also competed at the 2015 Rostelecom Cup and Skate Canada International.
Due to an injury to her right foot, however, she was eventually forced to withdraw from the 2016 World Championships. Though she resumed skating after a break, the problem soon resurfaced a few months later. It wasn’t until March 2017, that she announced that she would be returning to the ice. Hopefully, after a period of easing back onto the ice, she will return to competition in the near future.
