Alina Zagitova World Record Figure Skating at 2018 Olympics

"She Just Black Swanned Us!" 15-Year-Old Skater Alina Zagitova Smashed a World Record

Alina Zagitova is having a really casual time at her first Olympics. The 15-year-old figure skater on Team OAR watched her team mate set a world record for the highest score in a short program, so naturally she went out onto the ice and broke it herself moments later. As one does.

A seemingly infinite amount of triple jumps (seven of which were in the last two minutes of her performance), alongside technical perfection and unparalleled grace, scored Alina 82.92 points — the highest technical short program score in Olympics history.

Here's a look at her performance routine from the 2018 European Championships. Try not to scream at your screen (too much).

Twitter has come alive watching all of this go down (seems to be the theme for Pyeongchang 2018). Leslie Jones screaming "She just Black Swanned us!" might be our favorite part.
