The programs were done very creatively and he did a good job. They did a program to "Vocalise" which Katia had also used with Sergei that was very moving; it seemed to be a tribute to Sergei.
Often called "Katia," Gordeeva was born in Moscow, Soviet Union (now Russia) to Elena Lvovna Gordeeva, a teletype operator for TASS, and Alexander Alexeyevich Gordeev, a dancer for the Alexandrov Song and Dance Ensemble.
coach Vladimir Zaharov paired the 11-year-old Gordeeva with the 15-year-old Sergei Grinkov.
Hi, I've seen on you tube many montage on their skating and I was wondering if Katia is skating pairs again or is it a show like here in Canada, Battle of the blades... Can someone feed me a little bit about him and how they came about skating together, they have a good chemestry together... thanks Egor Beroev was her partner on Ice Age- a Skating with Celebrities type show in Russia.
He is an actor and his wife, Ksenia (also an actress, I believe) was also on this show as a celebrity.
Because Grinkov frequently missed practice, their coach eventually insisted that Gordeeva pair with someone else, but she refused. Gordeeva and Grinkov won the 1985 World Junior Championships in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The following year they won the first of their four World Championships.
In the 31 competitions whose results are known at the senior and professional levels, they finished first 24 times, and never lower than second from the time they won their first senior world title.
They are one of the few pair teams in history to successfully complete a quadruple twist lift in international competition.
