Who is Katia (Ekaterina) Gordeeva?

Ekaterina Gordeeva (Katia) was born in Moscow on May 28, 1971, and began ice skating when she was four years old. By age 11, she was a pairs skater with partner, Sergei Grinkov, four years older then her. Together, they soon won the Junior World Championships, and almost immediately, the Senior World Championships.

Katia Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov delighted the world with their gold medal performances in pairs skating at the 1988 Winter Olympics. Although four years younger than Sergei, young Katia was now maturing and falling in love, and she and Sergei married in 1991. Their daughter Daria was born in 1992. Sergei Grinkov and Katia Gordeeva, as Gordeeva and Grinkov, won their second Olympics gold medal at the 1994 Olympics.

When training for an ice skating performance on November 20, 1995, Sergei Grinkov had a heart attack and died the same evening. Katia was griefstricken, but within a year was skating by herself and performing again in Stars on Ice. By 1998, she was dating fellow Russian, Stars on Ice skater, and 1998 Olympic champions Ilia Kulik. Katia gave birth to daughter Elizaveta with Ilia in 2001, and married him on June 10, 2002.
