In 1996, Irina Slutskaya became the first Russian lady to win the European title (and defended it in 1997). She is
also the first Russian lady skater to win a silver medal at the Olympic Winter Games. 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 married Sergei
Mikheev in August 1999. She was left off the National team for Europeans and Worlds in 1999 but came back
strong the following year. Slutskaya missed the 2003 World Championships due to the severe illness of mother.
She was sidelined by illness (vasculitis) the whole 2003/2004 season except for Worlds. She suffered another
setback when she injured her knee in practice in October 2004.
