Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Irina Konstantinovna Rodnina (born September 12, 1949, Moscow, Russian SFSR) is one of the most successful figure skaters ever and the only pair skater to win 10 successive World Championships (1969-78) and three successive Olympic gold medals. She initially competed with Alexei Ulanov and later teamed up with Alexander Zaitsev. She is the first pair skater to win the Olympic title with two different partners, followed only by Artur Dmitriev. In pre-school years Irina Rodnina suffered from pneumonia eleven times, and in 1954 her parents brought her to her first skating rink, in the Pryamikov Children Park in Moscow. Since the sixth form of the secondary school, age 13, she trained at Children and Youth Sports School of CSKA on Leningradsky Prospekt.show more
