    Alexandra Stepanova and Ivan Bukin During European Championship for Figure Skaters in Minsk.

    Sometimes, it is not enough to simply be a dedicated professional in the hugely competitive world of sports, especially ice skating. In order to mesmerise the audience, skaters need to show off something other than just their skills and professionalism. One sure-fire trick is to impress everyone with a hot outfit.

    Russian athletes are widely recognised as the masters of ice skating; however, they don't rely on skill alone, and have been known to spice up their performances. For instance, last year, world figure skating champion Elizaveta Tuktamysheva stunned social media when she took off her jacket during a gala performance. Later that year, another Russian figure skater, Alexandra Stepanova, turned heads and made headlines with her body-tight black gala outfit.
