Our star turn today were a phenomenal Russian Pairs team. Ekaterina Gordeeva and the late Sergei Grinkov had many, many great performances over their stellar competitive career including 2 Olympic Gold medals.
The routine I’ve chosen was indeed a winning performance, but was not one of their Olympic Gold moments. It was their return to compete after a break from injury.
This team always had great unison, they were famed for it, but somehow this routine highlights it all the more due to its brisk tempo and a clever balance between short sharp movements and softer flowing movements.
So the inspiration we can draw from this is…look what is possible after taking a break?! Wow!
