I love watching figure skaters on the ice. They always make it seem like skating is effortless and their bodies are always so in tune with the music that they are performing to. It’s quite obvious that the skaters choose their song with great care and after much thought so perhaps that’s how they manage to give a power-packed performance.
Speaking of power-packed performances, we share one with you in the video below. Ekaterina Gordeeva is an Olympic Champion who performed for a live audience in March of 2015. She moves swiftly and gracefully to Susan Boyle’s “I Dreamed A Dream.”
For everyone who is Ekaterina’s fan, they’ll know that she started her skating career with her late husband, Sergei Grinkov. Together, the couple was 4-time World Champion in pair skating, and they were unbeatable. After Sergei’s demise, Ekaterina continued to skate as a single skater.
The Olympic Champion has been skating since the age of 4, so you know that the sport has been a part of her entire life so far. Skating for Ekaterina is special in more than one way. She not only pursued it professionally out of passion but she also met Sergei through skating as well.
Today she is married to 1998 Men’s Olympic Champion Ilia Kulik.
Have you seen Ekaterina perform on ice before? If not, we’re sure you’ll love her solo performance shared in the video below. If you enjoyed it as much as we did, then don’t forget to like and share this post with family and friends—especially those who enjoy skating!
