Ilia Averbukh was skating sucessfully with Marina Anissina, when he fell in love with Irina Lobacheva, who skated in
the same group but with another partner. In 1992, they joined forces and were married in 1995. They moved to the
USA in 1995, but they still consider Russia to be their home. Their Free Dance in the 2000/01 season tells the story of
a man who is struggeling with his fate, but the fate prevails in the end.
