Hailing from California, Polina Edmunds had represented the U.S. in the ladies’ singles event at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. A two-time medalist at the US Championships, she had won two silver medals in 2014 and 2016.
Brought up in Santa Clara, she started taking skating lessons at the age of four. The daughter of a figure skating coach, she quickly advanced through the levels. Growing up, her role models were Michelle Kwan, Carolina Kostner, and Sasha Cohen.
How Polina Edmunds Became Famous
After winning a few medals in 2013, she competed as a senior for the first time at the 2014 US National Championships. In the end, she finished in second place after finishing behind Gracie Gold in both the short and free programs. Following that, she was named to the US Team for the World Championships and 2014 Winter Olympics. At the latter event, which also happened to be her senior international debut, she finished in ninth overall.
The following season, she was assigned to two Grand Prix events after winning gold at the 2014 US Classic. From there, she competed in the 2015 US National Championships; after finishing third in the SP and fourth in the FS, she narrowly missed the podium with a fourth-place finish.
Ultimately, it wasn’t until 2016 that she returned to the podium at the US Championships for a silver medal. Due to adequate time for breaking in her skates, however, she was forced to withdraw from the subsequent Four Continents Championships.
