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 they got married in 1995. They moved to the
USA in 1995, but they still consider Russia to be their home. The couple missed all Grand Prix competitions this
season as Lobacheva injured her left knee in a practice accident in September 2001. Their competition debut was the
Russian National Championships in December 2001 in Moscow.
