Most successful figure skater Katarina Witt shares her spectacular journey towards being the World’s Best Figure Skater, in this exclusive interview with Namita Nayyar, President Women Fitness.
Ms. Namita Nayyar:
You are considered one of the most successful figure skaters of all time having won two Olympic gold medals, being a four-time World Champion and twice World Silver Medalist. Tell us more about your spectacular journey and how it all began?
Ms. Katarina Witt:
Luckily I found my passion for figure skating very early in life. At five and a half, I discovered while walking by the ice rink with my kinder-garden group that I very quickly fell in love with figure skating and I begged my parents for many many weeks to please please please bring me to figure skating and let me start figure skating. And finally my mom one day took me and my very first coach right away put me on the ice. And somehow I took it like I belonged to it right away. And from this time on, from five and a half, I stayed on the ice and I became a figure skater and still I’m very grateful and lucky that I found my passion in a very early age.
