  • Description

    Ice skating - and in Moscow, some of the world's top skaters took part in the four day competition, run by the Moscow News newspaper.

    SYNOPSIS: The competition was held in the Moscow Palace of Sports, and competitors from 13 countries took part. Some of the competitors were very young. Marina Pestova is just 13. Her partner, Stanislav Leonovich almost old in comparison, is 20. They were competing in the pairs category.

    Their performance, which included many difficult routines won them first prize. For some of the young skaters, it was their first competition. Pestova and Leonovich's coach is Stanislav Zhuk and their choreographer is his wife Nina.

    All the top dancing-skaters have choreographers. Irina Moiseeva and Andrei Minenkov have a top class coach. Their choreographer is Elena Matveeva, a ballet soloist with the Bolshoi Theatre.

    Not surprisingly, they won the Ice Dancing event. They were World and European champions in 1975 and 1977.
