Lady Skates To Final Fantasy

Posted on Monday, May 23 @ 13:44:37 Eastern by
Rarely does my love for video games and figure skating intersect. (I won't bore you with what I know about flutzes and backward outside spin entrances.) I was recently sent a video of a figure skating exhibition featuring Mario music to the Russian pairs team Volosozhar and Trankov. But I didn't find that video game tribute to be the most exciting over the course of this year's World Figure Skating Championships.

No, that honor goes to Karina Johnson from Denmark for selecting Final Fantasy for the very traditional and formal short program competition. The only reason she wasn't noticed was because she just doesn't happen to be famous and was skating in an earlier group. It's not the best video quality, but it's the only one without annoying commentators blathering over the crap out of it (which I will link here in case you can tolerate it).




For a clearer picture, some live footage of her short program at the Danish Nationals.




And if you want a real skate to Mario Brothers, look to Nobunari Oda's short program during the 2005 Junior Worlds (which I would have embedded here... if I could).
