Irina Slutskaya2.jpg

Irina Slutskaya (Russian: Ири́на Слу́цкая) was born 9 February 1979 in Moscow, Russian SFSR, Soviet Union, and is a former figure skater. She is a two-time World champion (2002, 2005), two-time Olympic medalist (silver in 2002, bronze in 2006), seven-time European champion (1996, 1997, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2006), a four-time Grand Prix Final champion (1999-2000, 2000-01, 2001-02, 2004-05), and a four-time Russian national champion (2000–2002, 2005). She also has won a total of 17 titles on the Grand Prix circuit.

Slutskaya, known for her athletic ability, was the first female skater to land a triple Lutz-triple loop combination (2000 Grand Prix Final). She is also known for her trademark double Biellmann spin with a foot change, which she also invented. She was the first Russian lady to ever win the European title and currently holds the record of seven. Slutskaya is generally considered to be one of the most successful ladies' singles skaters in Russian history. She retired in April 2007.

How great. She was the next on my great retired list whose fan fest I was going to open. I really liked her and I was moved by her tears of disappointment in Salt Lake City.

Yay Irina! :)

As I've often mentioned one of my enduring memories of the Olympics and skating is her in her unitard with the golden sun detail on it. I thought it was so cool :biggrin:

She's also be doing a lot of stuff lately with Russians with disabilities. Nice.
