As difficult as this sport may be, there is no shortage of talented ice figure skaters in the world right now. If anything, the competition only seems to be getting fiercer between professional figure skaters who always have to reinvent themselves and their routines so that they manage to stand out.
It’s not just the execution of the moves that matters; a skater’s performance is also influenced by the choice of music, as well as the skater’s attitude and charisma on ice. At the end of the day, an ice skater is more than an athlete; his or her goal is to entertain the audience.
Well, the incredible figure skater you’ll see perform in the video below definitely knows how to keep an audience on their toes.
Russian figure skater Evgeni Plushenko gained everyone’s attention from the minute he stepped on stage. With a routine that fell way outside the traditional and what everyone else expected, the man did raise a few eyebrows, but no one was able to ignore him; that’s for sure.
This performance is from no less than 17 years ago, but it’s as surprising today as it was back then. Take a look and don’t forget to share!
