Kiira Korpi is a reason to Watch Figure Skating at the Olympics
Do you think figure skating is lame?
Well, take a look at Kiira “there are two i’s in hot” Korpi and reassess your thoughts right this instant.
Kiira Korpi is a 21-year old Finnish figure skater who will be competing in this year’s Winter Olympics. She’s a 2007 European Bronze Medalist and took home the Finnish National Championship in 2008. The talent doesn’t fall far from the tree, as her father was the coach of the Finnish women’s hockey team and coached them to a bronze medal in the 1998 Winter Olympics.
And we know that’s not the reason why you are now going to be watching this year’s Winter Olympics. Nope, you’ll most likely be watching because of all the pictures we are posting for you and you are about to spend hours gazing over. Enough with the fluff, enjoy her ‘stuff and the great video below.
