Figure Skater
    (February 4, 1967-November 20, 1995)
    Born in Moscow, Russian Federation
    Gold medal winner for Pairs Figure Skating with Ekaterina Gordeeva (1988 and 1994)
    Married Gordeeva in April 1991
    Died of a heart attack at age of 28
    Despite being trained as an ice skater from the age of five, he did not become a strong solo skater.
    Because he was a 28-year old athlete, his sudden death from a massive heart attack was shocking.
    His death left his wife a widowed 24-year old mother of a three-year old girl.
    At the age of 14, he started training as a pairs skater as his coach teamed him with 10-year old Ekaterina.
    Almost ten years later, Gordeeva became his wife.
    He and Gordeeva won two Olympic Gold Medals, four World Championships and three World Professional Championships.
    He died while practicing for Stars on Ice in Lake Placid, New York.
    His heart attack was caused by a severe artery clog that left an opening the size of a pinhole; later, it was found that he had a genetic risk for an early heart attack.
    His widow authored a tribute book for him titled 'My Sergei.'
