Yevgenia Medvedeva withdraws from figure skating world championships

MOSCOW (AP) Olympic figure skating silver medalist Yevgenia Medvedeva has withdrawn from the world championships, ending the prospect of another showdown against friend and rival Alina Zagitova. The Russian Figure Skating Federation said Tuesday that Medvedeva has a recurrence of the foot injury that kept her out of the Grand Prix Finals in December. The withdrawal makes Zagitova the clear favorite for gold at the March 21-25 championships in Milan.
