In 1996, Irina Slutskaya became the first Russian lady to win the European title. she is also the first Russian lady
skater to win a silver medal at the Olympic Winter Games. Slutskaya collects stuffed animals. Slutskaya invented
the double Biellmann-spin with foot change. At the 2000 Grand Prix Final in Lyon she became the first woman to
land a triple Lutz-triple loop combination in competition and was awarded a 6,0 for technical merit. At Worlds 2001
she became the first woman to land a triple Lutz-triple loop-double toeloop combination. Slutskaya was left out of
the National team for Europeans and Worlds in 1999 but came back strong the following year. Her parents, her
coach and her husband helped her to get back on track. Slutskaya prefers the edge jumps loop and Salchow
which come easier to her than the toeloop. She married her boyfriend Sergei Mikheev, a student at the Institut of
Physiculture, in August 1999.
