About the site

фотоThis site (previously known as "Katyusha's Page") was created on February 3, 1999. For a long time I could not find any Russian sites about my favorite figure skaters Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov, so that is the reason behind this project. Since February 2000 the site has an English version.

A bit about me

My name is Irina. I became a fan of Gordeeva and Grinkov in 1986 when I read an interview with Katia in some Russian magazine. I was an 11-year-old folk dance student then and thought that Katia and I didn't have that much of an age difference and shared a similar love for dancing. That interview didn't even have a picture of Katia but she struck me as very down to earth, buoyant and fresh.
