Ekaterina "Katia" Dmitriyevna Alexandrovskaya (Russian: Екатерина Дмитриевна Александровская) and Harley Windsor (born Harley Dahlstrom-Winsor) are Australian pair skaters. Ekaterina was born on 1 January 2000 in Moscow, Russia. Harley was born on 22 October 1996 in Penrith, New South Wales, Australia. Ekaterina died in July 2020.

They are the 2017 World Junior champions and the 2017–18 Junior Grand Prix Final champions. On the senior level, they are the 2017 CS Tallinn Trophy champions, 2017 CS Nebelhorn Trophy bronze medalists, and 2018 Australian national champions.They became the first Australian skaters to win an ISU Championship (2017 World Junior Championships), the first to win a JGP event (2016 Tallinn Cup) and to qualify for the ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final. They are also the first Australian team to finish on a podium at Junior Worlds since 1976, when Elizabeth Cain/Peter Cain took the pairs' bronze medal.

Before teaming up with Harley (December 2015), Ekaterina skated with Vladislav Lysoy and Aleksandr Epifanov. Since both of Harley's parents have Australian Aboriginal roots, he is the first Indigenous Australian to have competed at any Winter Olympics, placing 18th at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

They were last coached by Andrei Khekalo. Their previous coaches include: Richard Gauthier and Bruno Marcotte, Andrei and Galina Pachin, and Nina Mozer.

WoW, I was looking fir their name in the Fan Fests, and you have created it! Thank you!

I am so glad that they manage to get Bronze Medal at Nebelhorn Trophy! I like their free proformance a lot, when they manage to sync more, it will be even better.
That means they are going to Oly, right? (I am not familiar with Oly qualifiing path, forgive me, if i have got it wrong)

Yes, they were qualified for the Olympics. The last problem is Katia's citizenship.

Yeah!!!

The visa application process is experiencing a delay for a couple months, due to short of staffs and large amount of applications after change of immigration policy lately.
But it shouldn't be a problem for Katia, they are going to the Olympic! Fast track plz!

Sorry to nitpick but isn't his surname Windsor and not Winsdor (which is in the thread title)?

So proud of them. They fought their butts off for this, and when the pressure was on and the moment counted, they smashed it out of the ground. Wonderful.

I loved how during the awards ceremony, Harley looked like he had no idea what was happening, and how Katia jumped onto the podium without congratulating the other medallists.

Note to myself: purchase an aussie flag for the Olympics! :cheer:
I'm already pumped for the pairs event and the fact that both Katia/Harley and Duskova/Bidar made it makes me even happier.

Another fan here! I've been a fan since their first JGP SP. They made some mistakes and Harley was so angry - I think there was some swearing involved in the K&C - I immediately though this guy knows what he wants and will not settle for less! I like that :)

And then when she did go to congratulate the others, she and Harley were so excited they kept bumping into each other. :laugh:
