Here's the translation done by Su-jan and Jaana from www.gg-corner.de :)
Man′s voice: In sport those will be successful that are
strong, diligent and have endurance. Katjusa Gordejeva and Sergei
Grinkov are the favouries of everybody. They are not winners by chance.
Female voice: She only weighs 35 kilos, he’s a young, strong
man. But this unlikely pair harmonize magically from the beginning.
Ekaterina: I liked him. He was stronger than í, he succeeded in everything and was such a relaxed guy.
voice: The press writes after their 1st success that it was
breath-taking to watch these two. Their skating has something pure and
Ekaterina: It means a lot that a pair likes each
other. That they respect and appreciate each other, it shows also on
the ice. The feelings can be shown, as they skate together, after all.
It is very easy to express one′s feelings on the ice.
voice: In the Swiss winter sports center in Flims Ekaterina Gordeeva is
coaching a pair who resembles Gordeeva / Grinkov in their size.
the Eighties critics call it a "disaster for pairs skating", it is "an
offense against aesthetics", "child’s throwing" say malicious tongues.
It didn’t harm Gordeeva / Grinkov.
Ekaterina: Some people like
it, some people think it is wrong, the judges might also think that a
win for such a pair is easier than for others. I think that is a good
age to start pairs skating. The girls are 12-13 years old as they start
and the boys 16-17 years old. A 12 years old girl has to be small if
she aims for a pair skater. The girls though grow up and the difference
in height reduces.
Female voice: The young couple gets even
more popular after the birth of their daughter Daria in 1992. Their
happiness seemed perfect. In 1990 they leave Russia and became
professionals in the US. Everything seemed possible. But in 1994 they
returned to the amateur ranks for the Olympic Games in Lillehammer. It
will be their last major success. One year later, Sergei Grinkov, will
not be alive anymore.
Ekaterina: We trained and suddenly he grabs his chest. We called the emergency doctor. He arrived within two, three minutes.
voice: The athlet suffers a lethal stroke. All of Russia mourns.
Ekaterina will never step onto the ice again as pair skater. Only once.
100 days after his death Ekaterina skates alone. For Sergei.
I don’t know. I stepped onto the ice, skated and skated and suddenly I
was together again with Sergei. I was distracted, didn’t need to think
about the misery night and day.
Female voice: With skaters like Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov another era end: Atheltic Elegance.
