Russian men and women are both known for their excellence on the ice – just in very different sports.
Well, Vladimir Tkachyov of the KHL brought hockey and figure skating together with one of the wildest goals you will ever see. Tkachyov, incredibly nonchalantly at first, picks up the puck with his blade before making his approach during a KHL skills competition. From there, he goes Olympic figure skater on everyone, spinning his way towards the net.
We have to thank the goalie for not actually making the stop as Tkachyov somehow has the wherewithal to cease his spinning and slip the biscuit right into the basket.
Thank goodness for YouTube is pretty much all there’s left to say. Enjoy.
