Maxim Trankov and Tatiana Volosozhar from Zurich to the Kremlin

Two of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games gold medalists, Maxim Trankov and Tatiana Volosozhar, were on the ice this afternoon in Zurich. The Russians were rehearsing for the ice spectacle “Art on Ice” starting tomorrow night at the Hallenstadion.

Other figure skaters like Florent Amodio, Kurt Browning, Sarah Meier and Stéphane Lambiel were also practising their moves, accompanied by the Youth classical orchestra from the canton of Zurich. The Eurovision winner, Loreen, was singing with much power her songs “Euphoria” and “We Got The Power”.

Before entering the ice Maxim Trankov told us how excited they were to have won back a gold medal for their country. Maxim said hat even if he and his partner were nervous competing in Sochi, their years of experience and successful competitions allowed them to skate at their best. When asked what goal they had for the games either to win the gold or to make it on the podium, Maxim simply answered it was “skate good”.

The two friendly athletes are on their way back tonight to their home country, Russia. Tomorrow they will meet with President Putin at the Kremlin in Moscow for a special party honouring the Russian medalists.

If you want to admire them, there are still some tickets for Sunday afternoon.

Here is a video taken today.
