Anyone who has been on an ice rink will know how difficult it is to even stay on their feet, let alone glide effortlessly across the ice and leap through the air. Of course it takes years of practice and dedication to be able to perform moves like the triple axel, which is one reason figure skating is so amazing to watch.
When Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres teamed up to compete in the 2017 world team trophy, they blew both the judges and the audience away with their breathtaking routine. The two developed a strong bond which allows Morgan to completely trust James when he’s lifting her high in the air and performing risky moves.
They chose to skate to the Simon & Garfunkel classic ‘The Sound of Silence’ and their magical moves perfectly matched the music, leaving everyone looking on in awe. Words really can not do the performance justice, so take a look at the mesmerising video below.
