Olympic skating champion Lipnitskaya opens up about anorexia
Olympic figure skating champion Yulia Lipnitskaya has revealed she struggled with anorexia for years before retiring at the age of 19. Lipnitskaya's gold medal with Russia in the team event at the 2014 Sochi Games, with a program themed around the movie "Schindler's List," made her the youngest Olympic skating champion since 1936. However, she struggled to maintain that success and her mother revealed last month she had retired following treatment for anorexia.
