Best in pair skating

Russia in pairs skating for titles, regalia and world famous athletes is much more lucky than in single.

Even those who are very far from the world of sports know Russian pair skaters by their last names and faces.

Our pair Oleg Protopopov and Lyudmila Belousova won the first Olympic “gold” back in 1964, again in 1968. They are the authors of many elements, which to this day are included in the mandatory program of performances around the world. At that time, this couple was the only one who rode like no one else could. Continue reading

Satoko Miyahara

Satoko Miyahara’s jumps are criticized – low, they say. But I would call the jumps not low, but rather small – in English there is such a beautiful word tiny, meaning something small, but with a positive connotation. Small, neat jumps – such as Satoko herself. They have aesthetics and taste.

In Satoko Miyahara there is tenacity, it seems to me that she is very persistent in the good sense of the word, she goes out and starts brazenly (despite the low jumps) to ride.

Acquaintance with Satoko Miyahara’s figure skating.

Satoko Miyahara was born in Kyoto in 1998. She has been practicing figure skating from a young age, she has shown very good results for her age. Three times performed at the junior world championships (2012), (2013) and (2014). In 2013, Satoko Miyahara won a bronze medal in a difficult fight in the national championship.

In early 2014, she was sent to the championship of the four continents in Taipei. This was due to the fact that the main Japanese team went to Sochi. Satoko managed to win a silver medal there, Miyahara repeated the same Continue reading

Nathan Chen was born May 5, 1999 in Salt Lake City, Utah – in the region of the Rocky Mountains, snow peaks, cold lakes and the 2002 Winter Olympics. He is the son of Chinese immigrants, the youngest of 5 children. Nathan’s parents are ordinary people with modest means, which is somewhat rare for North American skaters.

Nathan began to engage in figure skating at the age of 3 (just in the wake of the Olympics) on his sister’s white girl’s skates. When the skates became small, Nate’s parents turned to the Michael Weiss Foundation, which helps young talented athletes. In the fund, Nathan was allocated $ 200 to buy a new Continue reading
