Russian skater’s ‘strip-dance’ on ice inspires new online challenge (VIDEO)
After world and European champion Tuktamysheva stole the show at the Skate Canada Grand Prix last weekend, some fellow skaters decided to challenge themselves with the most memorable element of the ice dance which she performed to the tune of Britney Spears' Toxic.
And 19-year-old US junior national champion Amber Glenn.
“No wonder she’s US junior national champ!” Tuktamysheva tweeted, reposting Glenn’s video.
Even younger skaters realized that “the world needs another Liza.” Twitter user named Jared asked the Russian skater to take a look at his video, promising that she would “love it.”
Sports journalist Jackie Wong also wondered if he could take part in the challenge. Tuktamysheva said that ice isn’t even required but music matters, and also suggested making “a try for cantilever.”
