    Default Remembering Sergei Grinkov 20 Years Later

    Sergei Grinkov is half of a the best figure skating pairs team of all time. With his partner, and wife, Ekaterina Gordeeva, Seragei won four World titles, three European titles, and two Olympic Gold Medals. Gordeeva and Grinkov won 24 of the 31 events they entered and won silver medals in the other seven events.

    On Monday, November 20, 1995, during a rehearsal for the start of the Stars on Ice tour, Sergei collapsed. Sergei was pronounced dead at the hospital.

    Today is the 20th anniversary of Sergei's death.

    Heart Dear Sergei Left Us Way Too Soon

    Thanks for the wonderful post, Katy.

    I can remember November 20, 1995 so vividly. (My niece's birthday was the same day.) I just could not believe what I was hearing. I had "fallen in love" with Sergei and Katia. Only Michelle had a similar space in my heart. Even now, it seems so impossible that such a beautiful soul was taken much too soon. The figure skating community grieved publicly for Sergei and with the greatest respect. I'm sure that Katia felt some comfort from her friends and fans. May you continue to rest in sweet peace, dear Sergei.

    I still remember how stunned I was when I heard the news. I still miss him and I can't help wondering what Sergei would have looked like now. (I know, handsome! Maybe with some gray hair!) What a perfect pairs team they were. There will never be another like them.

    Katia and a wonderful cast of skaters will skate to honor Sergei's life. The show is called "From the Heart."

    I really want to see the show, but so far, there are no plans to televise it! There are so many fans who would totally appreciate seeing such a tribute.
