Olympic Champ Adelina Sotnikova Takes Off Season; Joins 'DWTS Russia' with Gleb Savchenko

We won’t be seeing Olympic gold medalist Adelina Sotnikova at the World Championships in Shanghai this year at all.

The 18-year-old Russian skater, who skated to gold at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, is taking off the season, according to ESPN.

However, despite tearing an ankle ligament in November 2014, Adelina is still competing on Dancing With The Stars Russia with pro dancer Gleb Savchenko.

“Although, I’m an athlete, I’m still worried,” Adelina wrote on Instagram with a shot of the dancing duo in the studio.

She added, “It’s a very different sport, but it’s great when your partner glebsavchenkoofficial always supports you.”
