Russian Olympic figure skater hits head on ice (VIDEO)

Russian Beijing 2022 figure skater Evgeni Semenenko suffered a nasty accident on Saturday when he fell and hit his head on the ice during a show in St. Petersburg.

Semenenko was starring in an event held by  Winter Olympics gold medalist Evgeni Plushenko and attempted a pull off a four-turn quadruple jump.

Failing in this, however, the 18-year-old landed badly and banged his head on the ice before then falling twice while trying to get up to his feet. 

To Russian media, Semenenko’s coach Alexei Mishin confirmed that his charge hit the ice “hard”.

Leaving on a stretcher, Semenenko was taken to hospital and has been diagnosed with a concussion according to Mishin.

“Doctors did not find any other damage inside the skull, but they are examining it,” Mishin revealed.

“I can’t say anything else because I don’t know. Now Semenenko is in the hospital, he is in an excellent condition, but doctors are worried about his health,” Mishin added.

Later on social media, Plushenko wished Semenenko a speedy recovery and revealed that he was in touch with Mishin and the doctors. “Everything will be fine,” the four-time Olympic medalist insisted.

Finishing eighth in the men’s singles event in Beijing, Semenenko most recently came fourth in the Channel One Trophy in Saransk in late March.

Before that, a year ago, he was also part of Russia’s first-ever figure skating World Team Trophy win as his delegation comfortably saw off the USA and hosts Japan.
