Russian skating champion Aleksandra Boikova has posted a rare snap of her posing in a bikini after passing her exams.
The 18-year-old European skating champion, who hails from the Russian city of Saint Petersburg, posted the photo on Instagram for her army of fans.
She accompanied the snap with the message: “I’ve passed my exams, now I can soak up some sun for a couple of days.
“Now a little respite, and then again into battle. More precisely on the ice and at university.”
In the photo, Boikova is seen posing next to a swimming pool while wearing a black bikini and shades.
On Instagram, the champion skater typically posts snaps of her on the ice, posing in elegant clothes with pals, or enjoying day trips to scenic locations.
Now that she has passed her school exams, Boikova said that she plans to enter the prestigious Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration under the President of the Russian Federation (RANEPA), the country’s largest state-funded institution of higher education located in Moscow.
Netizen ‘EktovaKatya’ said: “Congratulations on passing the exams. You are very beautiful.”
‘Goncharovamargarita8’ wrote: “Congratulations! You are a wonderful woman! Good luck with your sports and studies, you are great!”
Together with her 20-year-old skating partner Dmitri Kozlovskii, Boikova won gold at the 2020 European Figure Skating Championships in Austria back in January.
The Russian skaters were bronze medallists at the European championships the year before.
They also triumphed at the 2020 Russian Figure Skating Championships and the 2019 Canadian Figure Skating Championships.
