    Figure skaters have launched a flash mob on Twitter using the hashtag #Tuktikchallenge after the performance by Russian figure skater Elizaveta Tuktamysheva at the Grand Prix in Canada. The idea is to undress while performing the cantilever figure skating element on ice.

    The flash mob started with the video of 2015 US Junior National Champion Amber Glenn, repeating Liza's performance. "Does this count as the #Tuktikchallenge?" she asked Tuktamysheva on Twitter. Liza, in turn, supported the hashtag and retweeted the video, saying "Here we go! #Tuktikchallenge."

    Jackie Wong, a journalist, also wondered if he could take part in the challenge, despite his not being able to do a cantilever.

    Earlier, during the demonstration of her program, Tuktamysheva took to the ice wearing a stewardess' uniform, skating to the vibes of Britney Spears hit song Toxic and stripping off her apparel, finishing the show in only a bra and a tiny skirt.
