Russian news agency TASS reports that two-time World champion Evgenia Medvedeva might miss the second stage of the Cup of Russia series this weekend.

Sources close to the situation say that Medvedeva is experiencing back problems, the same reason for which she withdrew from the first stage of the series last month.

The second event is scheduled to take place from October 10 to 13 in Medvedeva’s hometown Moscow, and she is still expected to participate. Her participation is highly anticipated since her return to train with Eteri Tutberidze at Khrustalny after the test skates in September.
