The stadium has gone crazy for her!
Lipnitskaya is just 15 years old and is backing up the deserved hype surrounding her as she makes her senior debut in Sochi. A score of 141.51 as the last of five competitors on the ice was good enough to beat Gold’s stellar 129.38.
That also gave Russia 10 points and allowed the host nation to clinch the gold medal in the inaugural team competition.
“I’ve never seen anything like the atmosphere out there today. There wasn’t any silence for a single second.
It was so loud, I could barely hear my music. All I could hear were the shouts of ‘Ju-li-a’ and ‘Ru-ss-ia’.”
