Figure skating is an elegant sport where skaters glide across the ice performing amazing moves we we dare not even attempt. The vast majority of us may well look like Bambi slipping and sliding around on ice, but figure skaters have such finesse and grace.
These athletes are able to perform breathtaking routines that leave the audience in a state of wonder. When French figure skaters Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres teamed up to vie for first place in the International Skating Union’s World Team Trophy 2017 competition in Japan, they blew away the competition and left fans marveling at their routine.
The pair, who have been skating together for years and have developed a bond on the ice like no other. Such is their bond, it allows Vanessa to put her trust completely in Morgan when he is flipping and spinning her around. The two partners can anticipate each other and can perform amazing routines because of this.
During the competition in Japan, they performed a mind blowing routine to Disturbed’s rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s classic “The Sound of Silence.” They performed the routine with perfect synchronized skating, timed perfectly with the music.
The audience were left bedazzled by their amazing performance.
We hope that the judges felt the same way!
The sweet-sounding, almost eerie song coupled with their all black costumes lend a melancholy feel to what actually is a vibrant and stunning ice skating routine. Their first spinning jump is executed perfectly in tandem.
The judges base their scoring on how effectively the moves are executed and this pairing perform their routine to a very high standard. They are truly captivating to watch as they perform their routine seamlessly.
When Morgan throws Vanessa up in the air as if she is as light as a feather, my heart was in my mouth. But the way she lands back on the ice so effortlessly left me breathless.
Make sure you pay close attention to the amazing routine in the video below, especially at the 1:50 mark, when the pair perform a move that will blow your mind. Their breathtaking performance will have you on the edge of your seat from the very beginning until the end, and there are moments you will be left holding your breath to see if she lands safely while trying to score big points during the routine.
The audience can be heard throughout the performance, gasping in awe to the marvelous performance. The duo received a standing ovation from the crowd at the end of their incredible routine.
The duo executed their act flawlessly and in spectacular fashion. Be ready to be blown away by their amazing skill and talent.
