Olympic champion Alina Zagitova did a fiery dance to Mariah Carey's famous song Obsessed. The skater posted a video on social networks. Many believe Alina's dance is dedicated to parting with hockey player Dmitri Voronkov.

However, the romance of the figure skater and the hockey player has not been officially confirmed at all. Telecomasia finds out what kind of relationship was (still is), potentially connecting the main couple of Russian sports.

These are the song's lyrics to which Zagitova dances: "Oh, why you so obsessed with me. Boy, I wanna know. Lying that you're sexing me. When everybody knows.

It's clear that you're upset with me." It felt as if the dance and song directly referenced Voronkov.

Zagitova's fans loved her striking dance. Many suggested that the dance of the Olympic champion was a reference to the recent big news. On May 21, journalist Alexei Shevchenko of SE revealed that Alina broke up with Ak Bars hockey player Dmitri Voronkov.

However, the rumors of an affair between the athletes have not been confirmed. Zagitova was attributed to a relationship with several hockey players at once. Among them are Kirill Kaprizov, Alexander Romanov, and, of course, Dmitri Voronkov.

The figure skater first began to be attributed to an affair with a hockey player in early 2018. Then Zagitova became the Olympic champion in Pyeongchang, as did hockey player Kirill Kaprizov. At the time, rumors surfaced that Zagitova and Kaprizov stood side by side at the airport in South Korea before flying to Russia and chatted a little too nicely.

In the fall of 2019, the athletes were again suspected of having a secret romance - Zagitova attended the match KHL CSKA - Ak Bars, where Kaprizov was among the participants. Moreover, the figure skater and the hockey player were shown on the same frame during the broadcast.

However, after a while Kirill completely killed the intrigue: "We are just acquaintances, and they made up some insane story about someone approaching the other on the plane. We didn't care about that at all, me and the guys were celebrating our victory at the end of the plane."

Then Alina, who was still a minor at that time, also denied speculation about an affair with Kaprizov in an interview with the 7days magazine: "No. I didn't even think about it. First of all, I'm small. And secondly, one will want to think about it after the sport. Now we can only have a friendly relationship and nothing more!"

The next hockey player who was attributed an affair with the beautiful figure skater was CSKA defender Alexander Romanov. They started talking about a possible relationship in early 2020. The argument - the likes from Zagitova on Romanov's photo.

But, as in the case of Kirill Kaprizov, the romance was fabricated by Alina's fans. In an interview with Life.ru, Alexander Romanov said, "Of course, me and Zagitova aren't dating. Alina and I don't have any relationship, we aren't even friends. We don't communicate at all, even on social networks".

Well, after Alexander Romanov proposed to the ex-gymnast Sofia Krasovskaya, the rumors were finally dispelled. The fans were disappointed and started to look for a new couple for Zagitova. They searched for a year and finally found one!

In the summer of 2021, Zagitova for the third time was suspected of having an affair with a hockey player - this time an Ak Bars forward Dmitri Voronkov. Fans of the figure skater noticed that the athletes began to publish photos from the same places simultaneously. First from a wakeboarding trip in Moscow, then from a bathhouse in Sochi. And all the bouquets of flowers in Alina's social networks were perceived as gifts from Dmitri.

Another proof of the romance between Zagitova and Voronkov were the regular visits of the figure skater to home matches of "Ak Bars". But the matter was cleared up when the hockey player and the figure skater were spotted together in Dubai. Zagitova came there to perform in Tatyana Navka's show, while Voronkov was in an exhibition match of the KHL within the World Games series.

Then the Ak Bars player was asked directly about his affair with Alina. Voronkov decided to carefully avoid answering: "Can you move on? Do I like figure skating? Yes, I do."

Sports journalist Alexei Shevchenko, who covered the Russian team matches at the Beijing Olympics, added more fuel to the fire. After Russia lost the finals against Finland, Shevchenko posted a photo of a crying Alina Zagitova on the stand and made an ironic caption: "Alina Voronkova is upset that the family will not get a prestigious car."

Alina's reaction to Shevchenko's joke was not long in coming. "This kind of publication is not journalism. It is a pity that many people pervert the profession with such behavior. I once refused an interview with this man. It turns out I did the right thing," Alina wrote on social media. Later the journalist apologized for his words.
