As well as an Olympic gold medal, Navka has two world and three European titles under her belt.

Right after the Olympic win in Torino, where Navka dominated the ice-dancing competition together with her partner Roman Kostomarov, the pair announced their retirement from the sport.

Since then, the famous figure skater has participated in various TV shows, both in Russia and abroad.

Several months ago she staged a New Year show, ‘Sleeping Beauty’, in which she played one of the leading roles alongside singles skating Olympic champion Alina Zagitova.
