Romantic triangles of figure skating Published time: RT Sport takes a look at famous figure-skating duos, whose twists and turns resulted in them being entangled in love triangles.
Back then, the dominant positions in pairs skating were occupied by legendary Soviet couple Ludmila Belousova and Oleg Protopopov, who were victorious at a number of World and Olympic championships. Three years later, Rodnina and Ulanov rose to prominence at the European Championship, where they managed to overtake the seemingly unbeatable Belousova and Protopopov.
After that, the couple won all the major figure-skating events, including the Olympics in Sapporo, Japan. Despite their impressive string of victories, relations between the pair became very strained, with scandals and quarrels constantly arising at their training sessions. The reason for their conflict was another Soviet athlete, Ludmila Smirnova, with whom Ulanov desperately wanted to skate.
Ulanov paired up with Smirnova, while Rodnina — who had thought about retirement — started cooperating with Alexander Zaitsev. The newly emerged couples faced each other at the European Championship, where Rodnina outscored her former partner and won gold together with Zaitsev. Their triumphant path was extended for a long period during which the skaters claimed victories at two consecutive Olympic tournaments. Rodnina entered the Guinness Book of World Records after not losing any competition from to After the Sochi Games, the majority of figure-skating pundits were pinning their hopes on the pair, who should have set the pace in ice-dancing after the retirement of two world-leading duets from Canada and the USA.
However, this was not meant to be.
After the World Championship in Japan, where the couple unexpectedly missed the podium, Katsalapov announced a breakup with Ilyinykh.
